What a month!
We sure had a big time down in Savannah and Tybee Island this month. Shot a video of our single, THE LAST SONG, with John Baer, in Monterrey Square, my favorite square in Savannah, and in Bonaventure Cemetery. Johnny Mercer’s grave made a cameo appearance and I left him a few pennies, which I’m sure is below union scale. Anyway the video turned out great and you can just go to You Tube and type in Jefferson Ross. THE LAST SONG will be the FIRST song that you see.
We also got a really nice write up in CONNECT SAVANNAH, their free weekly arts and entertainment newspaper. You can find it on the home page of our website www.jeffersonross.com .
Played a super gig with Stan Ray at Cha Bella in Savannah and tasted some mighty fine wines there as well. Thanks to Stan for setting all of that up!
What else? Oh, yeah, just got a message from my European manager extraordinaire, Lee Williams, and he has invited me to host a weekly, hour long radio show on Europe’s CMR Nashville featuring singer/songwriters. Can’t WAIT to get cracking on that! I have such a heart for singer/songwriters and I’m really thrilled to be able to showcase some super talent. Details will follow.
AZALEA received a four star review in COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE, a top magazine in Britain. A big muchas gracias to Jon Philibert, who is a mighty fine writer himself and deemed us worthy of pretty high praise. It made my whole week!
Our ‘HotDisc’ single in Europe, THE LAST SONG, is sitting at #19 this week on their main chart and at #14 on their independent chart. Fingers crossed please!
More gigs are coming in for the U.S. and we’re starting the planning stages of our 2010 European tour. So far we have gigs in Germany and Britain and more are to follow. We’ll be posting those on our site as they are confirmed. I’m really looking forward to playing my tunes in Europe! Yeah, baby! We’re also going to be doing more of the wine tasting/ music show packages in the future too so stay tuned for those.
So, stuff is a-bubblin’ in the cosmic kettle and I’m just trying not to stir it too much.
Peace, love and home grown tomatoes-
