It has been a busy spring season in the beautiful Slocan Valley!
The big news is my Wild Heart album will be released on April 26th! Wow this album has been three years in the making and is a labour of love, for the music and songs. I am so excited to finally share them all with you! I will have pre sales of the album available on April 1st and will also be selling albums at all my release shows in April.
My spring album release shows are:
- April 5th @ Finley's Bar and Grille - Nelson BC.
- April 17th @ The Fisher Peak Winter Ale Series - Key City Theatre, Cranbrook BC.
- April 28th @ The Firevalley Concert Series - Edgewood BC.
- May 17th & 18th @ Kaslo Hotel May Day's Celebration - Kaslo BC.
I am performing all these shows with my amazing five piece soul blues band consisting of:
Holly Hyatt: Vocals and Bass
Clinton Swanson: Saxophones, Flute, Background Vocals and Percussion.
Jack Taforo: Keyboards
Jon Burden: Acoustic/Electric Guitar and Background vocals.
Steve Wilson: Drums
I feel so blessed to have these fellows in my life. They are extremely talented, kind and hard working!
Another big news item is my song "River Flows" recently won a Kootenay Music Award for Best Rhythm and Blues Song. I was in the category with three other wonderful female artists and feel so honoured to have received the award. Right before my "Wild Heart" album release, such amazing timing!!
On a personal note I have been loving all the sunshine we have been receiving in the Kootenay's and can't wait to get my garden growing! I live on a 1 3/4 acre piece of property with multiple gardens and berry patches. Getting my hands in the dirt and watching all the yummy veggies grow, is one of my favourite parts of the Spring.
So to sum it up I am feeling very thankful and blessed this spring:)
I hope to see you at one of my Album Release Shows!
