My Week In Pictures: orange-yellow-green spheres

by Renée

Another week, another ceramic cow.

This was a wild week filled with promo, performances, and orange-yellow-green spheres. On Monday we had Live Jazz Monday which was totally fun as always. On Tuesday, Craig and I took our usual day off. We had coffee with friends, bought some awesome cinnamon walnuts and lemon salted almonds from Shiraz Groceries on the corner of Somerset and Lisgar, and then went to see a $2 movie at Rainbow Cinemas. We saw Frankenweenie (I’m a big fan of everything Tim Burton) and it was so cute and awesome.

On Wednesday I taught six students! That was pretty much my whole day. If you want any information about my lessons just visit www.voicelessonsottawa.com.

On Thursday mark and I visited the Rogers TV studio and recorded a couple of our songs for their morning program. This is my fourth or fifth visit with Rogers and it’s always a pleasure to work with Derek Fage and all the staff there. After that, Mark and I went out for breakfast and fueled up for our second recorded performance of the day with the Ottawa Citizen. They filmed us playing and took some photos and Peter Hum interviewed us. Check out the Ottawa Citizen on Wednesday or Thursday for that article. After all that it was still only 1pm! I still had time to teach four students and meet with Amy Karlin, my amazing publicist. She’s been so great at promoting the CD release. She even brought me a bath bomb from lush to help me relax!

On Friday I spent several hours watching Adventure Time with Finn and Jake while I distributed the Here We Go Again download codes to the people who preordered the album via Indiegogo. I took a couple of breaks throughout to day though – one to have a much needed espresso at blumenstudio and one to watch the Capital Vox tribute to Duke Ellington.

On Saturday the books of sheet music arrived! Then Craig, David Pontello, Alex Moxon and I went to Pressed for the Saturday Afternoon Jazz Jam at Pressed. We decided to cancel the December 15th jam so this was our last jam as the house band. In January Karen Rauh and her latin band will take over starting on January 26th.

On Sunday I went shopping with my mom. She was so helpful in finding the perfect outfit for the CD release. I can’t wait for the reveal, it is seriously a smoking hot dress. Yeah!

So that’s it for this week! For more photos updated throughout the week, follow me on instagram.

My next performance is tonight, Monday, December 3rd at the Mercury Lounge for Live Jazz Monday – 9pm to 11pm, no cover. See you there!
