Another great BMA show, just finished up in the studio, my new camera, Billtown this weekend!

Hello Everybody!

I just wanted to catch you up on what’s been going on with the Songbird. I attended the Blues Music Awards in Memphis and as always, I had a natural ball. I got to be part of the VizzTone jam at the Rum Boogie on Beale, and talk about a good time! It was happening there!  I got to jam with Bob Margolin, using Little G Weavil‘s amazing guitar. It was an awesome evening!

And then the next night, it was the Blues Awards night, and what an outstanding show! I’ve made so many friends by attending the Blues Awards every year and it’s always like a family reunion when we all get together. I met up with my “Peach Pickin’ Mamas” partner, Lisa Biales, and she and I did some radio spots. We did a fun interview with Jesse Finkelstein for Blues Radio International. I’ll let you know when that show will air.

Lisa’s CD is doing great and I was happy to introduce her to some of my friends in the industry. Here I am at the BMA’s with some of my favorite people – Lisa Biales, Reba Russell, and Teeny Tucker.

I’ve been working hard on my upcoming album. My band helped with the arrangements on several of the songs and played their butts off in the studio. I’m so proud of the way they put so much of themselves into these songs. The creative juices were really flowing!

Here’s my band after a session in the studio – Paul Hornsby/engineer and producer, Gary Porter/drums, Mike Harrell/piano and organ, Ken Wynn/guitar, and Johnny Fountain/bass.  I love these guys!

And here’s Gary and his wife, Rhonda Porter. They helped me with background vocals, and she’s my soul sister!

It looks like the new CD, entitled “A New Day,” will be officially released in September. But I’ll have a few CD release parties prior to the national release. There will be one in Knoxville on July 18th, one in Chattanooga on July 19th, and another in Tallahassee on August 2nd. We’re working on several more, and we’re also in the process of booking some mini-tours in other states. I may be coming to your town, so just keep an eye on my schedule to see what’s going on. We’ll post the dates as soon as they’re contracted.

This coming Sunday, I’ll be performing at the Billtown Blues Festival in Hughesville, Pennsylvania. I’ll be joined on stage by my Northern Band, some great guys I used to play with some years back. I can’t wait to see them again, and all of my friends in Pennsylvania!

The goats are doing fine and I get such comfort from them when I get stressed. Here’s Sippie and me, enjoying a moment together.

I’ve also been enjoying my new camera. Here are a couple of photos I’ve taken lately. Can you tell I’m lovin’ it?!

Well, it’s back to work on the new CD. I need to get my part of the cover finished so we can wrap this baby up!

I hope to see you along the way. Until then, keep a song in your heart!

About EGKight

I've made music most of my life, and I enjoy every aspect of it. I'm a roots singer, songwriter, entertainer, publisher, and producer. My musical style has been called “country-flavored southern-fried blues.” I've headlined at clubs, theaters and festivals across America and in Europe. And my songs have been recorded by artists across the genres. Even my mentor, Koko Taylor, recorded a couple of my songs, and they landed on her last two Grammy nominated albums. I've had songs on five major TV networks, and I placed five songs in a movie that's available on Amazon Prime. I love songwriting, and I love performing, and I love to see all my fans at my shows. I'll see you out there on the road!

    I’ll see you Sunday!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I’ll be sitting as close as humanly possible to the stage unless I can find a way to sneak up onto it. hehe
