Let Me Reintroduce Myself
It has been nearly five months since a series of events left me unable to perform and produce with the many talented darbs I've come to know in the city I love. In the many days between now and then, I have agonized over whether I would return at all and what it will look like when I do; however, as I sit here writing this update, I am pleased to announce that I am on the mend and will be ready to return in a few weeks.
Now, this isn't to say that everything will be the same. I have had to make some hard decisions about which projects I will continue to nurture and which ones will be put out to pasture. Unfortunately, this means that the Crooner Has It podcast will be retired. I've genuinely enjoyed working on this and chatting with the immensely talented guests who took the time to sit with me each season, and I thank everyone who supported the podcast's short run.
The Crooner Has It live shows will return in 2023 on a thinner schedule. I have spoken with our home venue, Newport Theater, about this, and they have been understanding and accommodating. I can't stress enough how excited I am to bring this back. I will also continue the Crooner Has It blog and my writing projects, and I am gearing up to release a new studio album that features two original works and six new covers. You can pre-save the first single, "The Ballad of Jeffery Lynn," today!
I've learned that to prosper in this industry means learning to be resilient and adaptive, and as Dolly Parton says, "I'm not going to limit myself just because people won't accept the fact that I can do something else." So, here's to picking up where I left off and the new adventures yet to come.
