Hello all!! I know we were all anticpating the arrival of Spring and it looks like it's officially here.
This may come as a surprise to you, but guess what?? I've got a few gigs coming up. Where? Back in Chicago and also near Detroit. I'll be giving you links to get all the details, here are the dates....
June 13th: Chicago at the world famous annual Chicago Blues Festival in Grant Park, Downtown. I'll be joining the amazing Corky Siegel, harmonica genius and Siegel Schwall doing a tribute to Sonny Boy Williamson. Joining us will be harmonica great Billy Branch, a treat and exciting to watch. And of course the incredible band with Sam Lay on drums, Rollo Radford on bass and the inimitable Jim Schwall on guitar.
June 14th: Three Oaks Michigan [southwestern Michigan] @The Acorn Theatre with Corky's Chamber Blues. An eclectic mix of strings, percussion, classical music and the blues. Very interesting and fun.
June 15th: The Ark, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Only a short 45 minute drive south of Detroit and you're there. I did my first ever gig in Ann Arbor and it has a near and dear place in my heart. Again, with Corky's Chamber Blues
Other than that, all's good. There's a recent interview of me in Guitar Girl magazine. Feel free to check it out:
If you make it to any one of the gigs, please do come say hello. Thanks!!
All the best;
Hello All! A very happy Spring to you and all that it encompasses in your worlds.
Been a while since an update, I know, and I'm sorry. It's been one heck of a year since the release of my newest album, "The Vehicle" last April. I did a few tours in the UK with some great musicians from the Allstars Collective and saw some old friends and fans surprise me with their incredible support in far away lands.
And what does 2014 bring in my wild wacky world of music? Well, there have been some MAJOR changes. Firstly, I am no longer signed to my publishers, Music Sales/G.Schirmer, the deal ended last November after 4 joyous years writing and traveling the world with their support. All good things come to an end. But I am now a free agent which is good, not tied to anyone as far as my writing goes which is a wonderful opportunity.
I've been doing just a little bit of songwriting as of late but, most importantly, I have been working on my MEMOIRS!! I honestly started writing them about 5 years ago, and I can say, I have now finished the first draft and the 1st edit. So, I am about to pursue some book publishing opportunities that have been presented to me. I will of course announce any news regarding that here on my site and on my facebook and twitter pages.
I'll be doing a few shows in the midwest, mainly around Chicago/Detroit this coming June with Corky Siegel and Siegel Schwall at the famed annual Chicago Blues Festival. That is on June 13th in Grant Park. We have two further shows with Corky's other band, Chamber Blues on June 14th in Three Oaks, Michigan, and then again on June 15th at The Ark in Ann Arbor, my old stomping grounds where I did my first EVER performance of my singing career [in Ann Arbor that is].
I'll be posting info about the shows here and again on my other pages.
Here's wishing you a wonderful Spring, I hope to see you somewhere along the way.
BIG LOVE, Marcy xoxoxo
Hallooo!!! Just returned from a recent UK trip where I did some songwriting with my publishers, [Music Sales Group], and Delicious Digital, some shows with guitarist Mike Brown, percussionist, Robert "Skins" Anderson and Paul Pacifico of the Uk Allstars Collective to promote my new single, the title track of my new album "The Vehicle" with lots of BBC Radio interviews and another gig with fabulous singers, Lizzie Deane and Carleen Anderson, at The Boisdale in Canary Wharf hosted by none other than the great Jools Holland.
