I realize I'm starting to sound like a broken record here, but I don't think you can ever say thank you enough. I sent an e-mail out to everyone on my mailing list thanking them for all of their support this year, and I thought I would echo that sentiment here, especially as I have reached my goal on Kickstarter and I will be going on tour in 2011!! I could NOT have done that without you!

I have had so much support from so many people this year. You helped me to get better gigs at better venues in Atlanta, you all supported my debut album, Unsent Letters, you came to see me rock out with my backing band, The Cult Following, you voted me Best Local Songwriter in Creative Loafing's Best of 2010 issue, and most recently, you have helped me achieve my goal on Kickstarter - - so that I will now be going on tour in June 2011! I cannot even begin to thank you all enough for your continued support.

So I'll just say it over and over again. Thank you for coming to my shows, thank you for listening to my music, thank you for reading my poetry book, thank you for reading my blog, thank you for commenting on my Facebook, thank you for signing up for my mailing list, thank you for supporting this independent artist and many others! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You are all very much appreciated!

And I'm very excited about the upcoming year. Here's what you can expect from me in 2011:

- Geoff and I have re-grouped and formed a two-person band, using both my songs and his songs, called Pocket the Moon. We are still doing many of the songs from Sara Crawford and the Cult Following. He is playing drums, bass, guitar, trumpet, bells, keyboard. I'm playing keyboard, guitar, bass. We do a lot of musical chairs on the instruments. We have some songs where we play with backing tracks. We're doing a lot of interesting things! We're currently recording and we're expecting to release a CD in spring of 2011, and play many, many shows around Atlanta, so look for that!

- Thanks to my Kickstarter fund, I will be going on tour in June 2011! This is going to be mostly an East Coast/Midwest tour that will last two to three weeks. Geoff will also be coming with me, so it's now going to be a Pocket the Moon tour as opposed to just an acoustic tour. This is going to be a great thing, though, because this will allow us to book more venues and sell more merch. Stay tuned for details on that!

- I am continuing to work on plays and poetry, as I've just released my first book of poems, Coiled and Swallowed, in September, and I'm currently working on my MFA in Creative Writing (with an emphasis in Playwriting). You can expect some kind of theatrical production and/or staged reading from me in 2011. Also, I'm working with several other incredibly talented playwrights and screenwriters in Atlanta, and I'm hoping to help them with their future projects as well. Furthermore, there is talk of a theatre company in Georgia doing a production of my play, Painted, this year. I'll be sure to keep you posted on that!

Once again, thank you so much for everything you do. You have no idea how much your support means to me!

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year! :-)
