Years ago I had a band named Waddama that I had been a part of for 5 years. I gave up performance after my first son was born... but never gave up the music (Think lots of lullabyes and funny songs about dinosaurs). More recently, church worship has become a wonderful outlet for my music - mainly on the flute, but more and more with guitar and vocals.
I'm getting back into performance and hope to develop it into a career. There's few things in life I love more than performing (although God and Family come first).

Classroom presentations on ecology/environment through music and story.
Thanks for the invite again. Sorry I was out of town for it. I just saw that you sent me a message about it through here and for some reason it ended up in my SPAM box. Oh well, I hope that problem is fixed now. And keep me updated on future events.
Thanks Jeremy for your kind words and welcome to the Spirituality & Art group. I've been a follower of Jesus for about 35 yrs and a missionary and pastor for 29 of those yrs. The group is open to God's light, truth and compassion which shines throughout this world in places where most Christians blind their eyes to. Tough ... I'd rather live in God's kingdom rather than the worldly confines of Babylon anytime! Please feel free to post Christian songs, videos or anything else spiritual on the group site. Thanks
Jeremy... thanks for getting back to me. However, I already filled the bill with three singer-songwriters. Darn. I accepted the first three that responded to me. I may do this again in the Fall. I will keep you in mind. Thanks....
My name is Lisa Vincent. I am familiar with your music. I am also a musician, singer-songwriter, although I haven't actually gigged in a while. A few years back Waddama was featured on a CD I produced for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Perhaps you recall this?I still am very involved in music around Fresno... this is why I am contacting you.
I am a volunteer at the Downtown Community Arts Collective, an art gallery, non-profit in Fresno. The DCAC is on the Art Hop circuit, but also provides creative workshops for at risk youth.
In July, the Art Hop theme is "Music as Muse - Art Inspired by Music". On July 2nd, resident artists and some youth will be featured - all art that is inspired by music. During this show, I have instrumentalists performing.
However, in addition to this event, I am coordinating a concert later in month. The theme of this will be "Songwriting as Art", and will be a songwriters-in-the round type of deal. It will also be a benefit show for the DCAC.
I was hoping that you might want to be on the bill for this show. My intent is to really promote songwriting. I have media contacts and am hoping to get a lot of publicity. Your style and music is so excellent... I'd would really like to showcase your stuff.
It will be held at the DCAC studios, which is a really creative place and great environment for such a show. It will be an intimate setting. The show will be a fundraiser/benefit, with money being raised going to providing providing the youth with more opportunities for workshops. Because of this, we cannot pay our performers. However, you would receive mention in all the publicity, and, on the night of the event - free food and wine!
Please let me know if you would be willing to participate. There are two dates available at this point for the show... Saturday, July 18th (preferable), or Saturday, July 25th.
Thanks, the move did go well... no bumps in the road so to speak. And yes, I am now a northsider and I am reminded of it every time I see my neighbor across the street pull in to his driveway with a big "YES ON 8" sticker smack in the middle of his bumper. Give me a few years and I'll have a big "Gingrich in '12" sign in my yard (absolutely kidding of coarse). I know you are probably very busy these days, but I would love to have you sit in with "DB" sometime. Give me a call and we can talk about it. I trust everything is good with you? let me know whats goin' on.
