Performing Live at The Ark, Ann Arbor with Dick Siegel

This signature on the wall means I've officially played at the Ark in Ann Arbor. I was super excited when Dick Siegel -- a previous songwriting teacher of mine at the University of Michigan -- asked me to open for him at his performance this weekend along with two other songwriters from his class. I would have (seriously) never thought I'd ever play at a venue like the was very nerve wracking but very fun and I very much enjoyed hearing my former classmates play their songs (which I love...) again. And it was also great hearing Dick play as well. He's a great songwriter and also just a great performer in general. There's a lot to learn from him...

Singer/songwriter (and friend...) Katy signing the wall!

Hanging out backstage with Katy (singer/songwriter and friend...) while Dan (classmate and singer/songwriter) and Dick rehearsed.

Katy is an amazing and beautiful and truly beautiful. So I strongly encourage any one who has stumbled upon this post to check out her YouTube channel here or listen to this studio recording of "Jackpines and Lillies" -- the song that she performed on stage at the Ark. 

I especially needed this encouragement...
The moral support...aka bf.

I don't have any pictures of us on stage. But it's nice to have just lived on stage in the moment...rather than worrying about capturing any of it on film. I'm hoping there will be more performances in the future to come...
