The Bluebird Cafe Open Mic

The Bluebird CafeI mastered my album today!!! This is the most momentous thing that has happened this year, other than finalizing the recording. We could think of no better way to celebrate than to head on over to the world renown Bluebird Cafe and stand in line in the cold drizzle, make new, lasting friends, and hope by tempting fate, get a chance to make it up onto one of the most famous little stages you can imagine. Well, luck was on our side, as both Doug and I each had a chance to sing a song. We also got a chance to go back up and sing a song together at the end of the night. It was the perfect end to our Nashville trip. Hearts and Smiles.

Annette Conlon at 663 SoundI cannot believe it! We’ve finished recording and mixing “Life, Death, and the Spaces Between!” What started off last June as “oh, just a few songs with Ted Wulfers to see how it goes” has turned into FIFTEEN songs chronicling my life and death struggles, my emotions, feelings, thoughts, relationships with my family and friends, and all of those wonderful spaces between.

I am so happy and excited. We head to Nashville in March to master the CD and I plan to release it on April 17, 2015. Why April 17? That’s one year to the date from when I fell and hit my head on that trashcan outside of Green Peas in Culver City and received a severe concussion which resulted in a big “time out” from computers/tv/cell phone and all electronics. That “time out” gave me the time to reflect upon everything that had transpired when I was sick and almost died in 2012 and allowed me to channel my thoughts and sit down to write… and now, holy smokes, we have a record!
