Last Friday night, my friend and I played an acoustic set at Edison’s in Edwardsville for a few hours. I have lost track of how many times we have played there, but it is always a fun time. We had another great turnout of family, friends, and people just wandering in for a drink at the bar. Next up for me are some dates on campus, but this time with a piano player.
More importantly right now, though, I am focusing on getting some of my originals finished and recorded. One is very jazzy and mellow, the other is more of a happy, pop song. Both of these have been in the writing for at least 4 years now, just dying to be heard. I have been doing covers for far too long. It has come to the point where I want people to hear my own songs that I write.
The first time I sang in front of people I was in 5th grade. Turning 21 made me realize how fast time flies. If people are going to take my music seriously and not just consider me a YouTube cover girl, then I need to let the world hear my own stuff. So stay tuned and I will have some of my originals posted on my YouTube channel soon!
In the mean time, here is my newest cover (Yes, I’m still going to be hypocritical and post covers in the meantime). It was recorded at Edison’s.
