So, when I was like 19 years old and newly married, a friend of mine dropped off some burned CD's at my house of a young new artist, Graham Colton. I listened and quickly grew to love him and he has stayed a rotation staple of mine when I am not listening to Disney Jr. in the background. A couple years ago (after a bit of facebook & email stalking) I got the opportunity to open for Graham at Fitzgeralds in Houston. My luck, he had the flu and was literally horizontel at all times that night, except when he was playing, so, we didn't get to hang or connect much at all that night, but still it was super fun.
We have occasionally emailed back and forth since then, and when I released "How Does It Feel" in January, I sent him a copy. He reached out to me saying he would be interested in helping produce my next one, which I though was way cool. So, a couple months ago, I asked him if he'd be interested in working together on 1 song to release as a single, and he said yes!
So, the exciting news is......in a couple weeks on September 30th, I am flying to OKC and working with Graham and his team in his studio to record a newer song of mine called "Boomerang".
I am super excited for the opportunity to meet and work with more talented people & to, hopefully, prove that facebook stalkers can be normal, cool people too. Who knows, if all goes well and the sound and chemistry is good, we will do more than just the one song. We'll just have to wait and see. But I am definitely excited to be back in the studio! And if you have never checked out Graham Colton's music - you need to!! "Hold on To My Heart" is one of my favorites!!
Below, just for grins, is a video of me performing "How Does It Feel" that night that I opened for Graham at Fitzgeralds, almost a year before I recorded it for the new album. It is crazy how different it sounded then compared to now. I think I like both ways!
