Hey! Starting in March, I’ll be hitting the road with my friend and incredibly talented fellow musician, Nataly Dawn. We’ll be starting at SXSW in Austin and then driving all over the country. I’ll be opening, Nataly will headline and play songs from her new album (which is spectacular), and we’ll also be playing some songs together as well. Are you as excited as I am!?!? Maybe not quite? I guess that makes sense, but I hope you’re still kind of excited. For dates and details and tickets and such, check out the tour page of my website.
In other news, here’s what America looks like, with some letters and a blue line drawn over it.
Hey! I’m playing a live web concert on StageIt on February 20th. I have some brand new songs that I want you to hear, and I’ll of course play some older stuff, take your requests, answer questions, and maybe play a cover or two.
Because images are more stimulating than text, here’s a vaguely relevant picture of me with a banjo. You may click on it for show details and tickets.
If you have requests, let me know ahead of time via Facebook or Twitter. Thanks! Hope to see you there.
So, I’ve been busy.
For starters, I redid my website, which is now Tumblr-based, so you can follow my blog. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Furthermore, being a technological pioneer who is always at the forefront of everything that became cool two years ago, I’ve started actively using Instagram (@laurenoconnellmusic). I uploaded a bunch of photos from my west coast tour in November/December. Did you know that the west coast is beautiful? Check those out and maybe subscribe to my future photographs on your telephone.
Finally, re-entering the realm of things that I actually know how to do, I’ve been writing a lot and have a bunch of new songs. As of right now, I can’t tell you when you’ll hear them or how. I just wanted to let you know that they exist, more are in the works, and I can’t wait to get them to your ears.
I hope you are having a fantastic year so far. I solemnly swear to keep you posted.
My album “Covers” is out! It’s a collection of cover songs that I recorded at home in 2011 and 2012. You might like it.
The album art is from a painting by Jehan Choo, who has a blog full of amazing work that you should check out.
