My goodness it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged! I’ve been to Boston, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Nashville, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Iowa, Chicago, Indiana, California and now I’m on my way to Ohio. It’s been an amazing summer so far and now that “Jealous” is finally available in the US it has been an absolute joy to share it with you all. xx Thanks for your encouragement and love, I was so overwhelmed to debut at #22 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. xx
Back in May, my incredible friend Ayla Brown who some of you might remember from American Idol, asked me to open for her on a mini tour. We played The Middle East in Cambridge, Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and joined our good friend Tim Williams in Philly for a show at Bourbon Blue! We had way too much fun and it was all captured by one of my favorite photographers, Michael Sparks Keegan! He took one particular shot that absolutely blew my mind. I wrote a blog about it on my website.
So many friends came out to support the shows, and I even got to do a little line dancing while cheering for Ayla at Mohegan Sun. Random fact, I used to be an instructor!
I stopped back in Nashville long enough to do my laundry before I loaded up the trusty Ford focus and hit the road for Marshfield, Wisconsin. I had never been to Marshfield, but there is an amazing concert series there called Vox Concert Series that I was honored to be a part of. I got to perform for an amazing listening audience with none other than the incredible Connie Lim. The two of us had a blast catching up and performing together.
I couldn’t head to the Midwest without a quick stop in La Crosse! I try to make it to Lincoln Middle School where one of my best friends is the choir director, about once a year. This year, she asked me to write a song for the students to sing at their concert, so I wrote a song they titled “I’m Gonna Be.” The students sang it for me when I came for a visit and it was SUCH a special experience. Watch for the video coming to YouTube super soon!
Home sweet home in Waconia Minnesota that weekend for another show with Connie and my new friend Michael Shynes at Lola’s Lakehouse! It was a gorgeous day and we sang looking out at the water…perfection! A few performances later I was on a plane to Colorado!
It’s always a BLAST playing with my brother Jeff Bostic, and our good friend Clint Wilcox (click the link, he makes steel drums) in Colorado! The three of us played 5 shows across Colorado and I had the chance to go on KRFC for a “Live at Lunch” acoustic performance and interview. I know a lot of you tuned in for that and I’m so grateful. I had some pretty special helpers that day!
I squeezed in as much time with my precious nephews as I could before we packed up the car and headed to Iowa City, where we played to a packed house at Iowa City Yacht Club and then headed to Waconia for two home town shows! So many friends, some of which I haven’t seen since high school, came out to support us that night! I feel incredibly blessed to share the stage with such amazing musicians. It really is so special to be playing music with my brother. When we were rehearsing the day of the show, we were outside playing Bobby McGee, and an eagle flew over us. Our dad’s favorite verse was Isaiah 40:31, it was a nice little reminder that he’s watching over us.
I said goodbye to Jeff and Clint and hit the road for Chicago. I linked up with my friend Alex Hall’s band The Puffins for a show at the Elbo Room. They have a really cool sound. If you like Old Crow Medicine Show you should definitely check them out.
One last stop on my drive home to Bloomington, Indiana for a show at Rachael’s Café. It was an intimate show, but there was a small group that drove 2 hours from Lafayette for the show. They had heard “Jealous of the Angels” online and had unfortunately lost someone they loved very much. It was a very unique evening in which I got to spend time with some really amazing people.
Three weeks in one blog! It was brief, and I left out some details, but so much has happened since that I can’t wait to catch you up on! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to these shows and helped to make this tour such a success. I love you all!
I’ve come to appreciate a women’s body more so during my time in New York. I’ve had it all wrong from the start, a women’s curves are beautiful and there’s no need to be a stick. Show off what mama gave you 💪. #fashionillustration #Illustration #moleskineart #connielim
