Currently ailing a lot inside for reasons I can’t say. Times like these make it difficult to stay positive. Fortunately, the people in my life give me no choice but to be.

Happy holidays!

For those of you shivering from winter’s chill, I hope this new cover of Pink Martini’s “Snowglobe Christmas” brings at least an iota of warmth to your hearts. 🙂


This year, I’m thankful for all of you whom I’ve met on the road as well as those who have been with me all this time. You are the best gifts I have received so far.

2012 will see the release of a new album, a southwest + east coast + Asia (hopefully) tour, a new music video, the official launch of the Lily Bee Street team, a new website, and much more! Stay in touch for this crazy journey ahead!

Boston, you came at a good time. Just when I was lamenting the fact that I might not experience a “real” winter (first world problem, I know), this Boston trip comes along and brings temperatures in the 30s, Dunkin Donuts, cannolis, bare trees, and New England clam chowder (in New England). Ah, chilly bliss.

The show at Boston College was tons of fun, and I had fun meeting everyone after the show as well. Boston College’s VSA did a great job decorating the Vandy Cabaret Room. Wish I had taken pictures while I was there >_<, but I’ll wait for them to be posted on Facebook to steal for a blog post. Can’t wait to come back for our April show!

The best part was hanging out with old friends, meeting new ones, (awkwardly) saying the wrong name of one on stage, wreaking silliness and havoc in the city, meeting up with an old junior high school friend, taking the wrong T train (twice), hanging out with family, teaching my niece to play ukulele, and so much more to come this week.

I feel warm and filled with love (and food). Even though the holidays can sometimes feel like a hyperbolic campaign for capitalism, I feel rich in friends and memories this season.
