Last week I was in Minneapolis and I carved out some studio time to work through a few demos for the new EP. Very excited about the sound that we were able to develop and I can't wait to record the complete versions and get them out to everyone!! Check out my Instagram for more updates and videos from the studio!
Funny thing everyone, I'll be going back to Morocco to do a tour! Dates are TBD. I'm really excited to get back to a place that means so much to me and see all of my friends and family again. For some context, I lived in Morocco from 2010-2012 and worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Almost serendipitously I was performing at a cafe in Fez (Cafe Clock), when someone from the American Language Center (ALC) saw me perform. A project was offered to me to record an EP and have some of the proceeds benefit a local girls' shelter. As I was becoming more and more involved in girls' empowerment, this project sounded like a dream and a way that I could make some sort of difference. I couldn't have imagined a better way to make my first EP.
Now the ALC and I are in the middle of organizing a tour around Morocco to visit some other centers, work with their music clubs and of course perform!
I'll be posting tour planning updates on my Instagram, so be sure to follow: @socorramusic
I had this map hung up in my house and highlighted all of the roads I traveled by bus, taxi, donkey etc.
Happy March everyone! Wow time is flying by! My friend Dean and I will be joining forces to support a great cause in April. The Light it Up Blue Benefit Concert for the Pacific Autism Center for Education. The show is Saturday, April 18th at Santana Row in San Jose, 12-4pm. We go on at 2pm!
I just wanted to update you all on what I’ve been doing as of late. I’ve got some new shows planned for 2015 that I am really excited about. I also be recording some new demos starting in February that I am pretty excited about. More on that part later.
I am also going to be working on a new adventure…still a music adventure but something that combines my love for acoustic stripped down versions of songs and my desire to explore my local music scene.
Those are just some of my goals for 2015! I hope you have an awesome New Year and expect a new Shout Out next week :)
