Not Too Late
I’m a Mess
Conversation About You
Through the Fear [New Song!]
You Make My Dreams (Come True) [Hall & Oates cover]
Tonight I played a benefit show for the JMU Nursing Program with my good friends Big Creek Revival + Annie Lawrence & Mikaela Steinwedell.This show was super laid back since everybody was folksy and acoustic-y, but it was still buckets of fun.
Annie & Mikaela had a cool duo thing going on complete with piano and guitar. They managed to have a lot of variety with this simple set up, and I was digging it.
I got to debut a new song I’ve been working called “Through the Fear” and Annie joined me for part of “I’m a Mess” since we used to jam together and she’s heard me play it before. I mumbled a few of the words to the new song as I struggled to remember it at first and Annie did a bang up job remembering the words to “I’m a Mess” and pulled these really cool harmonies out of nowhere. We haven’t played together in a while, so it was a treat to have a little trip down memory lane. The Hall & Oates cover was a good time and was also the first time I’ve played it live. People seemed to know it, so I tried to get sing along going. I didn’t push it though, cause it would’ve gotten awkward real quick.
Big Creek rounded out the night with an assortment of originals and covers with four part harmonies, and even some solo songs from Casey and Spencer. They made me blush a little when they helped plug my show with Ingrid Michaelson on Friday, but I’ll forgive them for that.
Overall, not a bad way to spend a Wednesday evening. Going to try to do more of these post show recaps, hopefully you like this idea. If not, at least it gives me a chance to reminisce.
Thanks for reading!
