Let me entertain you! March 11, 2007 7:03 PM   Subscribe

So hey... that singing audition I was preparing for a few weeks ago? Well, it seems I got the gig. Sooo it looks like I'm going back to being a working professional jazz singer & I'll be doing at least a few Sunday nights at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley this year (starting in June or July). And with that, I'll probably get off my rear & start playing other places in the Bay area too (I'm finally starting on a new press kit & music website. Yay!). You lovely Mefites have been very supportive of my music (& my desire to return to making it); it's been ultra appreciated. Moral of the story: if any of you are in the Bay area & interested in hearing me belt out some jazz in person someday, let me know & I can put you on my mailing list for upcoming gigs. Kinda like a mini meetup where I shall serenade you! It's the least I can do. :)

Thanks p&c. I've missed performing, felt like a part of me was missing. I'm looking forward to getting back into it again...

That's so cool. I'm not musical but I did move way from my chosen career (and total passion) for a while. Picking it back up again, even just in small pieces at first, feels really good. Like you're moving back into being the person you want to be again.

Thanks phaedon, that's not my best song though. Here's more. I heartily recommend You've Changed as my personal fave. (I may take you up on the website stuff. I'm totally retarded at it.)

Yeah, many congrats.

Congrats miss lynnster. I still get a Julie London vibe from your singing (and that's a good thing).

I'm a little late, but yes, I liked the clip in AskMe too. It would be fun to hear you live as well. Congrats on the gig!
