One Year!

Hello, dear friends! It's been quite a while since I've sent any news via email, so thought what better time than now to share a little about what's been going on and what's around the bend. First, it's so hard to believe it's been ONE YEAR since we "put the pencil down" on production of "Walk Your Life". What a fantastic year it's been! In addition to a very successful (and fun!) CD release concert in January, I've had the good fortune to be sharing my music on a pretty consistent basis in Portland, Seattle, Tacoma, and Eugene (mainly in spiritual centers) and will making a trip to the SF Bay Area in September. I've met so many wonderful people in my travels and have been received with such love and enthusiasm! The more I immerse myself in new communities (I will continue to venture out), the more I see that we are all one big family. It's a mission of love, for sure... and feels so good. For schedule updates and more info, please visit my website at: www.laurijones.com.

Montgomery Jones


Since production of the album wrapped up, I am excited to report that Eric (Montgomery... my producer and partner in love & music) and I have joined forces as a piano/vocal duo called Montgomery Jones. It is so fun and fulfilling and we're constantly evolving and getting some great feedback. In addition to being an extraordinary producer, Eric is an accomplished singer/songwriter in his own rite. While he'd say his first instrument is drums, he is proving to be quite a force accompanying our harmonious vocals on piano. And I am taking percussion tips from him, adding tambourine and shakers here and there. Perhaps I will even venture into some cajon playing! ;-) We perform songs from my album, as well as songs he's written and those we've written together. We also put our stamp on covers that we love, ranging from Leonard Cohen to the Beatles to Ed Sheeran. We've been performing in wineries and wine bars and such (which is perfect since I LOVE wine so much... lol), our next gig being at the charming Arrivederci Wine Bar in Milwaukie, OR on Thursday, May 26th. Please visit our website for details: www.montgomery-jones.com.  

The Simple Sacred. Blogging & Country Life!


Last fall, Eric and I bought a 28' vintage Airstream-type trailer and set up shop out on his family's property in Battle Ground, Washington. I quit my "day job" and have been enjoying the simple life... making and sharing music, blogging, and helping to create our living scenario out here in the lush, beautiful, serene countryside. We have lots of visions for growing our life and work out here... the first step has just been getting settled here. I feel tremendously blessed... and I'm grateful every day. It has inspired me to start blogging about the "simple sacred"... musings on living from the essence of who we are... simply, joyfully, and intentionally. And to document our journey a bit. You can check out the blog at www.laurijones.com/blog and if you would like to subscribe and have the blog posts delivered via email, you can sign up there as well. 
 

Thank you!


As always, thank you so much for all the love and support. I feel it! :-) It is my simple hope that I can shine a little light out there... warm the heart a bit... and bring a smile. Maybe help you groove and flow and enjoy the ride a bit more. And I would love to hear from you! So come say hello at a performance... or leave a comment... or connect however you are inspired to. I'd love it. And if you are so inspired, please SHARE! Share the music... share the blog posts... share the art and spread the word! It's what we indie artists thrive on... to keep doing what we do... and to create MORE! :-)

Happy spring, my friends!

Love & Blessings,
Lauri
