*Spoke to Deanna Walker’s songwriting class with my manager Charles Alexander. Deanna’s class is where I met Stan when we were in college. It was very nostalgic to be there after all these years. I don’t know if I was necessarily qualified to be on the “other side” of that class, but it felt full circle-y.
*I got to write with some amazing people. I left each session feeling like I had really learned something from each writer and also explored something new in myself. Thank you so much to Mark Selby, Jenny Gill and Deanna Walker for all these new and magical horizons!!
*I made a new friend who I am absolutely obsessed with- Ms. Jenny Gill. She has a heart AND a voice of gold. I only wish we lived closer and could hang out and sing together every day. She is a beautiful person, and her talent is really ridiculous. Can’t wait for her record to come out and melt everyone’s faces.

*I got to play a show with Matt Mangano (Matt used to perform with John Mayer in the early years), Maureen Murphy (this woman is so so good!), Josh Day (he also plays with Sara Bareilles & Adam Levine from Maroon 5) and Brandon Conway. It was 45 minutes on stage of total magic. I LOVE these people. Matt has been a dear friend and a muse for over 10 years now, and whenever we play together, I feel in my heart that the stars align. The talent of this band was just insanity!! They are all musicians at the top of their game, and I had SO much fun getting to play and sing with them. It was a show I’ll never forget.
*I ate at Calypso Cafe two days in a row. The Lucayan salad continues to be one of the best meals on this planet.
*I got to visit old friends who I love more than words can say.
So yeah, it was an amazing trip that could have only been better if Jeremy were with me. But it’s been three days since I returned, and I am still so overwhelmed with thankfulness and so so hugely inspired and excited for what is to come. Thank you mostly to Charles Alexander for his ridiculous support and encouragement!!
Stay tuned for things to come and all my thanks to you out there for listening and believing along the way!!!
