Though we haven't been playing many concerts since December, the spring time is beginning to pick up with some gigs, interviews, appearances and overall goodness.
Below is a tidy list of important dates in the life of The Music Room and a brief description of why we're thinking they're important:)
February 13: Courage To Be You Concert in Natomas, CA.
We've had the privilege of partnering our music with a non-profit called Courage to Be You at a number of benefit concerts that they put on for the purpose of raising awareness and funds to stop, fight, and prevent sex-trafficking in the U.S. They produced our song "Cost of Believing" which is available for download on iTunes now! Just click "here" to download it.
February 16: Auburn Community TV Interview.
To be completely honest, I don't know exactly what this interview or show will entail. We're going to be interviewed by Radio and TV show host Renee Berg about our music and our involvement in Courage to Be You. We'll let you know what happens:) Last time I (Dane) was on TV it was when I was four years old and I didn't quite have the "it" swagger to push me towards any form of celebrity. It's time to redeem my 15 minutes of fame. Yay for community television!
February 18: Courage to Be You Concert in Auburn, CA.
February 25: Courage to Be You Concert in Stockton, CA.
March 2: Courage to Be You Concert in Redding, CA.
March 5: EP Release Show at Origin Coffee & Tea, Rocklin, CA.
This night is incredibly special for three reasons:
1) We'll be sharing the night with our good friend and incredible singer/songwriter Grayson Kessenich.
2) We're playing at this brand new volunteer-driven, coffee-and-tea-serving, human-trafficking halting, awareness-raising non-profit who gives all their income towards the efforts of eradicating sex-trafficking from the face of the planet. Now that's worth so much more than a latte!
3) We'll be making our brand new EP "Live While You're Alive" available for purchase, of which a percentage of each sale will be donated directly to Origin's mission. BAM! We hope to see you there:)
March 17: Concert at Bayside Cafe, Granite Bay, CA.
We'll be performing in an intimate, coffee shop style atmosphere where Q&A time is always welcome. If you fail to ask any questions, we'll ask ourselves questions from a prefabricated list of interesting questions for bands from interestingquestionsforbands.com.
March 25: Live in KDVS Studios, Davis, CA.
We've been getting some radio play down in Davis since we released our first album "Lesser Loves." Now we're going into the studio to perform an acoustic set live on the air with host Adam Thompson. We'll post up the streaming audio from the broadcast if you miss it live.
That's enough for now. If you're interested in more specifics about any of the Courage to Be You events, click here.
Last, but certainly not least, we'll have the new EP up on iTunes any day now. Friend us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter (links provided on right hand side of screen) to be informed when this happens.
Much love and much peace,
The Music Room
