What a summer! With my oldest headed to Boot Camp in just a few weeks, my music endeavors have been put on hold a bit… FAMILY FIRST 🙂 We are so proud of Deklan and his decision to serve our country in the US Marine Corps. We know he was made to do this and are excited for him to step into his dream right out of high school! What a rare opportunity!
The reality of him leaving is paralyzing for me though… I imagine that many new songs will flow from the flood of emotions I have about launching my first born into this scary world we live in. He is an amazing young man, I am proud to be his Momma!
Meanwhile, the release of “Mama’s Whispers” has been well received. If you haven’t purchased it yet, it is available on iTunes and CD baby as a digital download, or you can find it on Spotify and iHeart Radio by searching for “Jessie Barr”! Thank you to everyone who has already purchased it; We hope to use the proceeds towards another EP by the end of this year.
As for upcoming dates: Jason and I will be at the Morning Owl Coffeehouse TOMORROW Thursday August 3rd from 7-9! In September we will be playing a couple of private party gigs, and we hope to be at Art in the Park in Kent on September 9th! (Time to be announced) I will be teaching a clinic at the Kent Creativity Festival on September 30th for simple songwriting ideas and making music, which is a first for me. I am anxious to light the fire of songwriting for others, just as was done for me back in February at Nowhere Farm! More info to come on this… Kent Creativity Festival
Finally, on October 14th, We make a return to the Debord Halloween Festival in Akron in the early afternoon, followed by a 5:30 gig at Cafe O’play in Stow, Ohio. Both of these kid friendly venues provide a great opportunity for a family fun date! … Check it out! Debord Halloween Festival
