I'll admit it right now. This is a seriously shameless promotion! My lovely daughter, Guitar Girl, whose real-life name is Audra Dorsey has her first gig this Friday night at BayCoast Coffee Market in Clearwater, Fl. She plays guitar and sings. Most of her set will be her own original music. A couple of the songs will feature another singer/musician. I sat in on part of a rehearsal and while the other musician played guitar, she accompanied him on a pepper mill! Yes. I said a pepper mill. Mine. From my kitchen. The one with the peppercorns in it.
Moooove over CowBell! There's a new sound in town - the Pepper Mill.
One Fine Man, Bella~Mella and the fam will be at BayCoast Coffee Market in Clearwater, FL, smiling real big this Friday night. Of course, I'll have the blogcam, too. :)
While Audra is a poetic songwriter, she is also known by her friends as a pretty cool freestyler. Friends, and strangers alike, will offer a topic and she will, on the spot, write a song about that very thing! Pretty cool, huh? Hey...I warned you up front that this was a shameless promotion.
Audra has offered to write a song for 5 people (of her choosing) who leave a comment on this post. If you want to comment, but don't want a song, simply indicate that.
So, maybe you want an original song about your kids, or your spouse, your life, your job...you get the picture! Just leave a comment here telling who or what you want your song to be about. Then, for privacy sake, pertinent information about the subject of your desired song can be exchanged through email with Guitar Girl. So in order to get your song "just right," make sure she can reach you via email. Then, she'll write it and sing it and send it to you! And it's free!
You can check out her blog here and her myspace here. She has 3 original songs on her myspace. Crazy Good features her fabulous beau, Andrew Boggs, singing with her.
There is still time to get in on my Give-a-Way posted below. I'll draw a winner from the hat Friday afternoon!
