On Blogging, House Shows, Thanksgiving, and 2015

As you can see by the last post date here, I’ve been inexcusably terrible about posting new content in blog form. Sure, I’ve been updating Facebook and Twitter, but there’s something infinitely more valuable about compiling and curating that information and presenting it in a more coherent manner. It’s also one of the best ways I can keep open dialogues between myself and you all (at least the folks I don’t get to see at our house shows!)

I’m going to be making a concerted effort to be more active here for the coming year. I want to keep people updated about House Shows, but I also want to keep sharing music and thoughts I love with all of you, because well, there’s so much good music and so many good people to share it with.

So – what does this mean? First, it means a slew of year-end posts, ranging from my favorite songs and albums of the year to teasers and updates about what’s going to be new in the Music Means Family world in 2015. There have been so many fantastic albums, shows, and songs this year, I have a lot of things to touch on in December.

Oh, also, it’s the day after Thanksgiving. I wanted to take a minute to thank all of the incredible artists who played Music Means Family shows this year, there were so many moments I got to be a part of that I never could have imagined a year or two ago. From Ark Life to Count This Penny, Field Report to Bradford Loomis, Luray to Maiden Radio – I really feel blessed to have shared this year with so many amazing musicians, and even more so, so many amazing people.

I can’t wait to reconnect with all of you over the next month and more, and I can’t wait to see some of you at House Shows in 2015!
