QueenEarth & Friends has always been about a movement. In 2012, we became an album, an event, and a professional network. I like to “big up” my friends in my educational, musical, and creative networks. In honor of networking, I’ll be doing more sharing of my business/professional network in my FB group! You be able to find a tutor, audio engineer, or a jewelry maker. A photographer, a principal, an author. An after school workshop guru, a bass player, and a vocal coach. I been sharing my network info via QueenEarth & Friends! Join if you have “stuff” to share! I’m actually looking for a photographer and some press! E-mail me at QueenEarth@QueenEarth.com if you’re interested in collaborating in 2013.
January brings our 1 yr. Anniversary Show!! January 19, 2013 we celebrate one year of our show, and we’re gonna do it in our Pjs. It’s a January Pajama Jammy Jam! Power couple Adeke Rose, Poet aka Karen Crawley-Buckholtz and bassman/vocalist David Buckholtz are bringing spoken word and love songs all night. It will be sexy, so why not wear our Pjs? Also, It’s Shana Buckholtz’s birthday (their daughter and the genius behind the QE Friends artwork)! With all that madness, one must ask, can QE Friends be too sexy??? Ponder it and check out the event! https://www.facebook.com/events/517971141563435/
I’ve met quite a few folks who are asking about guitar lessons. Why not give yourself, or someone else, the gift of music? I always enjoy new students. In 2013, you’ll have 2 options for QueenEarth instruction. I give private lessons in guitar and creativity, and I teach classes at CCBC! Find more details on my website! http://www.queenearth.com/2012/12/guitar-lessons-private-lessons-and-ccbc-spring-2013/
Most don’t know, but I listen to a lot of country music. Lately, I’m really into The Band Perry and Carrie Underwood. I’m also a huge fan of Darius Rucker, esp on this side of Hootie and the Blowfish. I’ve been enjoying the brilliant songwriting and the simple chords that are thickened up with beautiful background vocals and great lead singing. It’s all soul music to me. Right now, this is my favorite song to sing http://youtu.be/UZwyw3Oj-kQ
I’m also working on some new material and some folks say, it sounds a little country. You can decide when you hear the recordings, whenever they manifest. And finally, speaking of recording . . . I guess you’ll have to wait to hear more about it.
Live. Laugh. Love.
