Ok, so we have been really hittin’ it hard on this CD release tour since leaving home and I have to say the shows have all be going really well. God I love my band! They are such super bad ass players and great human beings! All of that energy translates to killer performances… weeeee!
The Cd has been doing pretty well for radio play and I am very pleased with that… you never know when you put out a new one, quite how it is going to be received…but Stronger For It seems to be well accepted so far…#1 on the Blues and Roots Radio Charts multiple weeks running and #1 on the Living Blues Radio Charts and in the Top 10 for Billboard Magazine Blues charts right outta the gate. AND the audiences are lovin’ the new music…no complaints here!
And SUPER WOW! We did a segment for World Cafe in Philly this week with David Dye…taped for May airing… will keep you posted about that air date…HOW COOL IS THAT!!!
Today was amazing as we are in East Lansing..the guys have had a couple days off ..seriously needed… while I prepared to represent as Spokesperson for National Foster Care Month and Ambassador for Foster Care Alumni of America – to give a Keynote speech here at MSU for the 8th Annual Child Welfare Conference for the State of Michigan (my Peeps..) on Permanency – Engaging Older Foster Youth for Positive Outcomes. What an incredible experience. I am truly blessed in countless ways.
Tomorrow – Thursday back to work as we r playing a show at the infamous Magic Bag in Ferndale, MI… Cant wait to get back to the stage…lovin’ this life… just lovin’ it! Hope to see you all soon on the highway… Love – J
