The first month of 2017 was by turns exciting, exhausting, and exhilarating for me. So many incredible experiences were packed into just a few short weeks, so I'm taking a moment to breathe, reflect, and prepare for the next part of the musical journey.
What happened? I'm glad you asked...
NO FUSS AND FEATHERS played concerts in Virginia and Texas, and put on our activist hats for two monumental events in our nation's capital: We played a few songs for the pre-show crowd at the UnNaugural Concert (a fundraiser for progressive national advocacy groups), then gathered in peaceful demonstration with hundreds of thousands of kindred the next day at the Women's March on Washington. It was a weekend that reaffirmed my faith in the kindness and strength of my fellow Americans, and an experience I will surely remember for the rest of my life.
Certainly just as exciting was sharing the stage once again with my old friend and former Red Molly bandmate Abbie Gardner. We swapped new songs, sang a little harmony, and let out more than a few hearty laughs with a warmly appreciative audience at the cozy and comfortable Jalopy Theatre and School of Music in Brooklyn.

Finally, I was honored to accept the Director's Choice Award at the 33rd Annual Mid-Atlantic Song Contest Gala for my song "Matches," which also received Silver honors in the Folk/Acoustic category. The field of songwriters represented was deep and rich, so I was simultaneously humbled to be in such company and ecstatic at the opportunity to perform a song that is so meaningful to me for such a fantastic audience.

And what's next? Again, I'm glad you asked. Click HERE to see a full list of upcoming shows!
Thank you, as always, for continuing the journey with me. Until we meet again, I wish you love, laughter, good music, and
