Greetings, my friends!
I trust you’ve all had a wonderful, energized summer. I know I have!
You might have noticed that I haven’t been out on the road much this year, but it’s not what you think. I haven’t escaped to any romantic beach. And to allay your fears that I might have again decided to run away Down Under, let me reassure you that it’s winter abroad, so I decided to summer in the good ole USA. No…while you’ve been sipping your sweet, cool cocktails beside the pool, I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes.
I’ve been quietly slaving away at some very exciting projects. I’m about ready to bust a gasket over the joy of it all. While it’s not quite time to spill the beans of what we’re planning over here at jenniferknapp.com, we’re getting really close to revealing all the news that’s fit to print!
The most obvious is that I’ve been obsessing, writing and polishing songs for the new record. I’ve had the chance to play a few special shows throughout the summer that I like to call “Smash-or-Trash.” It’s always my preference to get new songs out into the open, playing them for you lovely folks, and letting them find their footing. Not only do I get to see your faces when you hear them for the first time (which is a true pleasure), the songs also get a chance to grow. You might have seen a few live performances posted on YouTube, but don’t get too comfy…at times, the lyrics have evolved, merged and sometimes even taken radically different shifts of direction. I can honestly say at no time in my life has the music that’s come to me led me down such an adventurous path. They are challenging and inspiring my own journey in ways I never imagined possible and I can’t wait for the day when we get to harness them together and enjoy the ride!
So buckle up, stay tuned, and keep an eye out! I’ll need all the help I can get to make it through this Fall. There’s so much to do! There will be tons of Inside Out Faith events, some more Christmas shows with Margaret Becker and of course…recording a new record! Who knows what else we’ll dream up together?….
I can’t say it enough. I couldn’t dream of doing this without your love and support. It’s been a long journey back, but I’m finding my stride. Thanks for all the hugs and good cheer. Now let’s go have some fun!
