What a summer it has been! We had so much fun at the indoor and outdoor album-release shows (rain and shine!). Thank you all for being a part of those, in person and from afar. We truly felt the support!
We have also had some uniquelyglobal experiences these last few months! Through my parents, we got to meet and open for Sharon Katz, an inspiring, incredibly talented activist and world-touring musician from South Africa. Later in the summer, Katie’s friend Barrie got us a spot to perform at the World Athletics Championship track & field event in Eugene, where we got to play our songs for Olympians and athletes from every corner of the globe as they had their morning coffee and lunch break! A Polish athlete asked us to sing happy birthday to a teammate, and a coach from Germany jumped on stage at the end to play Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” while we all sang along. In-between sets, we got watch the men’s long jump and saw Tobi Amusen set the new world record in hurdles!
This week we have our last two shows of the summer!
