It’s time to reflect on all of the AWESOME things that happened in 2014!
In January, I got the physical copies of my debut album, TEMPTATION.
This was one of the most exciting days of my life!!! Making a CD had always been my dream, and it finally came true!!! 🙂
In February, I had the opportunity to visit Taiwan.
Taiwan was such a great place to visit! The people were so friendly, the food was DELICIOUS, and the weather was SO WARM compared to the cold winter Wisconsin-ites were having 🙂
In March, I had my CD Release!
This was seriously one of the most exciting nights of my life!! My dream of releasing a CD came true, and I had so many AWESOME supporters at my show!!!
I was also very lucky to have my friend, Jimmy Murn, open for me that night.
In April, I got TEMPTATION on Reverbnation and Bandcamp 🙂
In May, I got to perform on bass for the first time!
I was a guest musician at Jimmy Murn’s show at the Glass Nickel, and it was a blast!
In June, I got to play at Alpacapalooza.
The aplacas were sooo cute!!!
In July, I got to see Michael Bublè in concert!
WOW! I can’t tell you enough about how AWESOME Michael Bublè is live!!!!
In August, I developed my independence by getting my own equipment 😉
Up until this point, whenever I would perform, I would use the equipment of the musician I was opening for. I knew that in order to perform more, I needed to get my own stuff! 🙂
In September, I had a milestone event.
I got to perform at Mother Fool’s without having performed there before, and without knowing the band I was opening for. It was the first time I independently booked a gig!!! 🙂
In October, I reached another milestone. I reached 400 likes on my Facebook Page 🙂
And I wrote and recorded the fun little song above for the occasion!
In November, I did some musician-professional development and explored how to use mindfulness to overcome stage fright.
The Mindfulness Revolution is a great read. I strongly recommend it!
In December, I reached another milestone. I performed for over 2 hours!
After 31 songs, my voice was pretty much shot, but oh my goodness, was that a FUN show! 🙂
2014 was a great year! I am excited to see what 2015 will bring! 🙂
Happy New Year!
