Hey Hey, So I played a show the other night, sorry I didn't post. It was a house show and not so many people would have been able to actually fit in the venue. It was cool though. I have many shows upcoming, here is my listing for June so... Continue reading

Only a few hours away from home and I am glad to say The Good Graces mini tour was a hit. We loved New Orleans and Checkpoint Charlie's and hopefully we can visit both soon again. I think I could easily dwell there for a summer taking in the beauty... Continue reading

Hi Everyone, So if you didn't know by now, I'll be heading WEST to perform with my friends as The Good Graces. It's going to be an exciting adventure as we trek to Austin, Texas to join in on the rocking good times of the South by Southwest Music Conference... Continue reading

Happy New Year! So let's get to it. I teach music, I perform music, give music classes and I sub. It is not a lot of money nor is it steady money. I'm gonna need some support from all of you. I'm trying to raise money to settle a few... Continue reading

So last weekend I played with one of my favorite bands and good friends Chickens and Pigs. When I say play with I mean I actually played guitar. I've occasionally sang backup a few times but this time was a big leap for me. I really enjoyed myself even though... Continue reading

My writing started almost a year ago.I want to atempt something I never tried before but something I had the training to do, write an "opera". I use the term rather loosely because I imagine this work to be a more like an oratorio. Songs based on a story but... Continue reading

So I've been pretty slack on the blog but I played about 30 shows in 2011 including an offical showcase at sxsw 2011. That's a lot for one woman to book, prep, practice and play in a year. So something got ignored, meaning the blog. That's a price to pay being a DIY musician. I hope for 2012 to blog more or at least post show pics and even post videos of my experiences in the music business, sometimes when I'm right in the mix I'm always still learning) so I want people to come visit me here more so I'm giving the blog more TLC. Happy New Year Monica aka nerdkeen Continue reading

((ºLº)) Today would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday. He was a major songwriting influence when I started writing as a teen. You can say I was a bit obessed with him for a while and had an insane crush on Sean too. I remember vowing that I was going... Continue reading

I've been having trouble with my computer while recording. It's an older computer with not much memory so I was asking for trouble I guess. Hoping to finish by the end of the month. Continue reading

I'm really working on my website as of late. And of course I'm doing it myself and my skills are getting better. The music is coming along but I will admit that is difficult when you worry about bills and going back to a dayjob. I believe that this is... Continue reading

According to statistics provided by the New Music Seminar that I attended this past summer, there were only 5,945 artists able to sell over 1,000 copies of their albums in 2008. And only a mere 110 of these artists managed to sell over 250,000 albums (the majority of which are... Continue reading
