New Merch!

I teased on my social media recently that I would be announcing new merch soon... well, here it is! Since the decline of CD sales, I’ve been wanting to create music merchandise that was not only memorable but also practical. My grandmother taught me how to crochet as a child and, after falling off a stage and breaking my elbow in Autumn 2019, I used crocheting as a form of rehabilitation and physical therapy. Since then, I have created many projects as gifts for friends and family, and even crocheted our daughter’s first Halloween costume in 2021. It only made…

4th of July, 2022!

Dave Hannon and I are super excited to be celebrating the 4th at Mill Haus Cider Co.! We will be tag-teaming the gig (switching off on mic/baby duties) from 3-6pm and Ian Webb will join us on Djembe/Percussion. Not only is this one of our favourite (yes with a "U") venues (the grounds are absolutely incredible!) - their cider is also some of the best I've ever had! Mill Haus Cider has also added Smores and Hot Dog Kits to their menu, which you can sear over their open flame bon fire pits. See below for more info: We look…

New Business Cards!

As a result of leaving my business cards out on a table (alongside some free stickers) next to my merch and the tip jar at an all-ages show recently, I was promptly OUT of business cards due to some kids helping themselves to my stash... so I figured now is as good of time as any to redesign my cards anyway - the last ones were done many years ago, when I was still living in Canada. Check out these new babies! On the front: keeping it simple with my name, website and email. The background picture is actually a…

Spring 2022 Update

It’s been a bit since my last real update… I can’t say I haven’t had my hands full.  As most of you know, I gave birth to our beautiful, smart, funny, curious baby girl, Libby, last September. I took a few months off to recover from the pregnancy and sleep deprivation – but I was back into gigging by November/December last year.  Libby is now 8 months old and growing like a weed. It really does go as fast as they say it does!  With that said, I am definitely back in the swing of playing gigs. This week I’m…

Singer Songwriter Showcase

Most of you these days are familiar with my happy hour/restaurant/pub/winery cover sets, where I'm belting out the classics of the 70s, bopping a few tunes from the 80s... and embracing the 90s hangover... But this Wednesday I'm playing a really cool Songwriter Showcase at The Mill Steakhouse + Spirits, where I'll get to show off my original music "in the round" with 2 other talented singer-songwriters. Come check out just how incredibly special our little pocket of the Puget Sound is! 1/2 price wine bottles, seafood specials and live music this Wednesday at The Mill! Hosted by Billy Stoops…

Baby News!

Well, I may not have gone into labour AT the Green Day concert (as we’ve been joking I would, for weeks now), but it’s quite possible that the The Hella Mega Tour-Green Day/Fall Out Boy/Weezer Seattle concert got something started (she was punching me in the hips to the music the whole time Weezer was playing and I went into active labour less than 24 hours after the show - 10 days early)! Welcome to the world:Elizabeth (Libby) Grace HannonBorn Sept 8, 2021 at 11:13am… 9lbs 8oz!!!20.5”… she was named after my Aunt (her Great Aunt) Elizabeth Dave Hannon was…

Waiting for Baby…

Well, it's official... I'm once again on a brief hiatus from music (this time much shorter than the last few hiatuses, when I was waiting for permission to work, which took nearly a year... and when we were waiting for gigs to pick up after Covid, which sadly went over a year - this time it should only be about a month or so, hopefully, if all goes well). Dave Hannon and I have decided to take 2 or so weeks off before Baby Girl is due - just in case she decides to come a little early. I'd hate…

Summer Shows!

It feels SO GOOD to be back playing music for real live people again! To anyone who's already made it out to a live show, thank you so much for coming out and supporting local live music. For anyone who hasn't made it out yet, we (Dave Hannon and I) do have some shows booked throughout the summer and we would LOVE to see you, if you feel comfortable coming out. You can keep up to date on the where and when by checking out the Upcoming Shows page or my Facebook Page. If you have any questions, as always,…

Spring 2021 Update

It's been a while since I've shared an update, hasn't it? Well, where do I start? With Pierce County starting to return (or not?) to hosting live music, there have been a lot of questions of where Dave Hannon and I sit when it comes to playing shows during the pandemic, so... here's our scoop: As we all remember, March 13, 2020 will forever be a day for the history books.... Full moon, time change, mass toilet paper shortages, global pandemic virus, markets crashing, interest rates dropping, border closures, Friday the 13th, snow in some parts of Tacoma... and it…

Doyle’s Trio Show This Saturday!

Tacoma, I'm so stoked for this show! I'll be at Doyle's Public House this Saturday, performing alongside my good friends Angie Lynn and Maddy Dullum. What's so cool about this event is that while we initially booked the show to be a musicians in-the-round type of event, we thought we'd get together to figure out a few songs we could play together for a "grand finale" of sorts. After only 2 rehearsals, we realized we had over twenty songs we could collaborate on... and each of us will be playing more than one instrument throughout the night. You do not…
