Issues

February 25, 2012 | By | No Comments

If you tried to read my blog earlier today, you may have noticed that it either wasn’t here, didn’t look right, or filled you with a Lovecraftian sense of dread.  Putting it simply, I had some issues with my hosting and decided the best way to fix this particular problem was to completely re-build the site.

Everything seems to working again, with the exception of podcasting, and that should be back up this weekend.  My apologies for any inconvenience or general site-weirdness!

 

 

Walk For Talk!

February 22, 2012 | By | No Comments

If you’re reading this (and I practically guarantee you are,) you may have noticed the big honking link on my right sidebar. You know, the one with Isla sporting the adorably asymmetrical pig-tails. Well, Isla is raising money for her school, Northern Voices, with a little help from her mom & dad.

Northern Voices is an incredible school that teaches deaf and hard-of-hearing how to speak and listen. All of the kids wear listening devices such as cochlear implants just like Isla. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the work they do there is amazing. Isla has been making incredible progress and is making many new sounds and even a few words. She loves her new school and looks forward to going every morning. The staff, honestly, rocks.

Our family is walking a 5K in May to support Isla’s school. If you would like to make a contribution, you can do so by clicking on Isla’s fundraising page. Donations are accepted online starting as low as one dollar.

Thank you in advance for any support you can give, and to learn more about the great work they do at Northern Voices, check out their website at northernvoices.org.

Admit it; you’re also a bit curious to see if I can walk a 5K without stopping for several naps.

Upcoming Concert

February 17, 2012 | By | 2 Comments

Other than the occasional home concert for Wifey and Isla, It’s been a while since I played in front of a real live, polite Midwestern audience. Well, I’m excited to announce that I will be performing my original piano compositions in St. Paul, MN on Friday, March 30 along with pianists, David Nevue and Steven C Anderson. The concert starts at 7:30 pm.

David is the talented composer and founder of Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, an online radio station I am proud to be a part of. If you enjoy solo piano, do yourself a favor and check it out!

The concert will be on Summit Avenue in St. Paul. Seating is limited, so please RSVP to steven@stevencmusic.com to reserve your seats and get directions to the home. The suggested donation is $10/person at the door.

I’m really looking forward to this, and I would love to see you there! For more information, visit the Events page at the Whisperings website, or drop me a line.

Unfortunately, Indie & Bear will not be in attendance.
