2013 is underway and the year has started off with a bang. After a New Year’s day brunch with the fam I jumped back into work. I started writing some grant applications that are due next week and set up the last of the Indiegogo perks to be sent out. I had a nice coffee date with Nicholas Maclean, a great pianist from Ottawa who currently lives and studies in Toronto. And I had a lovely breakfast date with fellow singer, Nicole Ratté.
On Friday night I played at the Ottawa Swing Dance Society’s live band night so we spent the afternoon on Thursday rehearsing for that.
I have a tendency to overwork myself so I tried to make time for songwriting, working out, and a little bit of photography, just for fun. I actually really like that self-portrait in the middle photo. It was taken by shooting with my iPhone through the view finder of a Fujica Camera. Click here to see the higher res version of that photo.
There is so much going on in the next few months so I’m trying to prepare myself and get ahead on work. Is that even possible?!
Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting back to regular performance. Live Jazz Monday is back tonight at 9pm at Mercury Lounge so please stop on by for a cocktail and a relaxing evening of jazz standards preformed by myself and François Gravel. There’s no cover!
