Now Appearing at a Coffee Shop Near You!

Audra Dorsey
now appearing...

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!


  1. Oh how I wish we could be there! Too late to catch a flight but I will be thinking of you and wishing you the best! Can't wait to see the pics - maybe Lindarella could pop in for some extra paparazzi! Oh and should I be chosen my song would HAVE to be designing beautiful things and adding color to the world! LOL!

  2. How proud you must be and I can bet it will be spectacular!! How bout a song about the first Christmas I have all 4 of my children home (last year the boys were still too difficult to have my older two here), this year despite the sadness that has happened I am blessed that all 4 will be here!!!

  3. Your daughter is BEAUTIFUL Mel! She seems WAY beyond her years too. Do we leave the song comment on her myspace or blog or yours? I have a GREAT topic for her!

    Also, I copied you. (Imitation is the best form of flattery:) I did a little giveaway on my blog. You have to go enter! I usually do a "favorite nail polish pick" post for each season, and for Christmas I decided to give one away after seeing your apron giveaway. So mosey on over to crumbs in my butter and check it out! :)

  4. Oh my, she deserves a shameless ad indeed. If she were my daughter, I'd be extremely proud!

    Wow, I would love a theme song to go with my "love letters to the King." I post them each Friday and I'm hoping to turn them into a devotional book. It's a subject very close to my heart. I can't imagine the awesomeness (is that a word?) of having a song to go with them.

    my email is springfl@comcast.net

    This is very cool.

  5. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am over this opportunity. I am looking forward to hearing from your daughter.

    That's funny that the sconces and angels are separate. My decorating sense is about non-existence. LOL.

    Hope the coffee shop gig went well! can't wait to hear about it.

  6. The chance to win a song is officially closed.
    Recipients of the original songs are:
    Alisa@Colors of CHRISTmas,
    Mel@A Voice for Moms,
    Angela@Crumbs in my Butter
    and Spring Fricks@Princess and the King
    More information to follow this week on what Guitar Girl needs in an email from you so she can write your SONG!
    I'll be doing a follow-up post on her debut at BayCoast Coffee Market this week. It went great!
