Hello Dear Friends!
Well... Kickstarter sent me a message yesterday reminding me that it's been exactly one year since the album project was SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED! Can you believe that? What a year it has been! I thought I would take this opportunity to say "hi" to all my wonderful supporters and catch up a bit.
First of all, I do have a Facebook musician page now where I post updates:(https://www.facebook.com/laurijonesmusic). If you're on FB and haven't yet "liked" my page, please do so! I would LOVE to share with you. Also, I have just started blogging on my re-vamped website: www.laurijones.com. What fun that is... I'm finding I really enjoy expressing that way! You can leave information for me on my website contact page if you would like to be added to the email list as well. AND... I have also joined Twitter! (www.twitter.com/laurijonesy)... so you can follow me there, too! Ah... social media..... whew! ;-)
I've had a wonderful summer performing at local Spiritual Centers and on the American Empress, selling lots of CD's, getting some airplay, and just spreading the love! I also performed at an oh so fun lawn concert sponsored by New Thought Center for Spiritual Living... with the whole band! Seriously, they sound SO good and I couldn't have had more fun singing my songs LIVE for such a warm, appreciative, enthusiastic crowd (sold out!). For those who missed that (or simply want MORE), we are in the process of trying to secure a venue for an official CD Release Party this fall. Stay tuned! And I would love to find more opportunities for the band to perform with me... if YOU have any ideas, or would like to host a house concert yourself (we can adjust the size of the band to fit the situation), please let me know! I love singing and sharing my heart that way SO much... and joyously welcome opportunities to do so.
I would like to close by sharing a video snippet from the lawn concert last month. This clip shows my reaction to a timely appearance by my new dragonfly friend (at about the 1:10 mark). It's been a "dragonfly summer", for sure! (read my latest blog for details). ;-)
Again, THANK YOU for your love and support and helping to make this an amazing year. It means the world to me. Would love to hear from you and stay connected... please find me "out there" if you haven't already! (or you can reach out here on Kickstarter as well).
Love and Blessings always,
