The Sacramento News and Review has nominated me for Best Blues Artist for 2017. This is a huge honor for me, and also a very motivating nudge of encouragement. To say that having 2 kids in the last 2 years has been a challenge is quite the understatement. Here is what I have learned from the trenches of parenthood in regards to music:
1) My love for music has been tested like never before, and I can now say that the love runs deeper than I ever thought possible. 2) Every minute I get to practice or write a lyric is an incredible gift. 3) I will continue to put one foot in front of the other, learning, teaching, creating, and sharing. Forever.
Now is the time to vote for me! Please go to www.sammies.com, login with your facebook, and find me under "Blues Artist." I would really appreciate it! The deadline for voting is May 29th.
