What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Arlington, VA
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1. Selected in September 2016 as one of five DC area singer-songwriters asked to contribute to "the acoustic guitar project". Basically a donated acoustic guitar is loaned to a singer/songwriter and you have one week to write a song and record it on a movie camera (provided by the project) then pass the guitar to the next songwriter. Once all 5 are finished the organizer will host a concert where all 5 artists will play their song. The project is active in multiple cities around the world. All the songs are posted to their website and blog/podcast.
2. I have lived in the DC metro area now 3 different times over the years. First time I was living near Tokyo Japan then moved to Northern Virginia, then to Kailua, Hawaii back to Northern Virginia, most recently I moved this summer from Southern California back to Arlington. I recorded my album in San Diego but all of my album performances have been in the DC area.
3. I have travelled and lived in many places in the world from Europe, Asia, Australia and North America and coast to coast throughout the US. There is no other place quite like the DC area (that's probably why I'm back). So much culture, passion, entertainment and simply interesting people all in the backdrop of our nation's capital. Those who gripe about it, have not travelled much.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I'm an independent singer-songwriter with a professional day job. No world tours in my future. Writing songs is just a part of who I am. I have been doing for years but with the encouragement of family and friends, I decided to record an entire album. Please take a listen. My influences are varied from rock, Americana, blues and country. It's all mixed in there depending on the track. My album is titled "Ordinary Day" and has 10 all original tracks. The neo-introspective songwriting forms the medium to tell lyrical stories of love, joy, loss, and standing up for what’s right. Thanks for listening and your consideration.
