Pittsburgh, Columbus, Indy, and Chicago!

So I know it's been some time since I last posted, my bad! I still have to catch you up on the last week of tour! Rewinding back two weeks, I know I left you last in Baltimore. From Baltimore, I hit the road to Pittsburgh where I got to catch up with some good friends and cooked my first homemade meal in 3 weeks and boy was it tasty, I've included a pic below to show how proud I was :) Then I traveled to Columbus and performed at Woodlands Tavern. From there I went to Indianapolis where I reunited with my lil sis Courtney, which as you can see from the photos below is a ball of fun! We both safely traveled back up to Chicago for the Holidays are are still recovering from black friday and the massive amounts of Turkey leftovers consumed... 

First home cooked meal while on tour!! So proud! : )

My Family crew in Columbus!
The craziest, only lil Sis I got! Wobble with me baby...

Last night I had my homecoming show in Chicago at one of my favorite venues, Uncommon Ground. Always such a good time! Not only did I have the extremely talented Kate Diaz open up for me, but had some lovely familiar faces in the crowd come out and show their support! Welcoming December, I am off to Baltimore this weekend to help some friends move, and then off to Nashville to write, collaborate and reunite with some great musicians! Until then, stay warm and Happy Holidays!!

Recap of CT, Philly, NYC & Baltimore!!!

Finally updating you all as I we've been on the road for 6 days straight this week!!! It was fun, amazing, exciting, and exhausting all at the same time! Today is my first day off for this week and I couldn't be happier to still be in my PJs in bed! Sun is shining and I can't wait to take a run along the inner harbor in Baltimore, MD! Before I do though, let's catch you up to speed with all the exciting shows that went down this week! We started in New London@ Coffee Grounds, next we headed to Two Boots in Bridgeport, where we also got some killer pizza! Look up "Two Boots" if you haven't already, awesome back story. Then we headed to the "The Outer Space" in Hamden, CT where we met some wonderful musicians and connected with some new fans! (oh and where meg forgot her piano stand...sore subject).

Sad to leave the amazing Philly Cheese steaks we devoured, we headed ont our favorite city of all cities NYC to reunite with our best friends and supporters @ Rockwood Music Hall! It truly was an incredible night, seeing so many near and dear friends rooting us on and making our musical experience possible! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

Sad to say goodbye to my dear friends and bandmates I've had for the past two weeks, I hit the road SOLO for Baltimore. Mr. Andrew Auburger and his killer guitar playing skills joined me for our gig @ Joe's Squared Power Plant in the heart of Baltimore! We had a blast, enjoyed getting people on the dance floor, met some awesome new faces and ate the best pizza I'd have to say in B'more! Thanks again to everyone that made this week the best week of tour ever!

Having way too much fun w/ old friends!
