All Originals For Next Tuesday’s Live Show – Please Vote On Which Songs!!

February 18, 2020

Hello my friends and fellow music lovers! How goes it? Seven weeks into 2021 and so far it has brought intense weather, more pandemic drama, and felt more like 2020 than I would’ve liked. It hit me again this week, how much I miss seeing friends, miss playing in-person shows, and miss being out in the world. But my family and I have been lucky in so many ways. And there have been some wonderful moments as well, like giving my lil’ niecey Lilly P her second guitar lesson! (see photo above) We’ve got another music lover on our hands people!!! 

It’s starting to feel like there may be a light at the end of this long tunnel, and I’m so glad we’ve found ways to keep sharing music and virtual moments together through it all. Most recently, thanks to everyone who joined in last night’s Live from the Porch streaming show on Facebook, and watched the crazy thunderstorm, while I took the blustery weather as a sign to change it up and play mostly spontaneous requests for cover songs that I’d never played before! So much fun. 

Since I didn’t play many originals, next Tuesday at 6PM (same time every week) I’ll play mostly my own songs! And instead of spontaneous requests, I’m inviting you to vote on the set list:

>> Click here to pick your favorite Shauna songs! << I’ll use the survery results to choose the set list, and everyone who fills it out will be entered in a raffle to win a swell prize. I can’t wait to see which songs you all choose!! Note: “Enjoy the Ride” and “Happy Thank You” are not on the list because those will definitely be on the list for next week.

Speaking of which, I hope you are hanging in there and finding ways to enjoy this ride we’ve all been on for so long now. I’m only an email or Facebook message away if you need a musical pick-me-up or just wanna say hi. Looking forward to next Tuesday’s live stream, and our Zoom Afterparty forPatreon subscribers right after that!

Hugs,

Shauna

๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ„A holiday message and Christmas carol for you! โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ•Žโœจ

(Recorded yesterday during my Facebook Live stream set)

Hello! Just wanted to pop in to your email box to wish you all a safe, enjoyable holiday week, and a healthy, happy and prosperous new year. ๐Ÿฅ‚๐ŸŽ‰

I’ve got one more virtual event before 2020 ends, if you’d like to “attend”:

Tuesday Dec 29th at 6PM I’ll be performing an hour-long, all-original live set on my Facebook page.

Afterwards, from 7:15ish to 10PMish, I’ll be hosting my Last Open Mic of 2020, live on Zoom! ALL are welcome for both of these virtual events, feel free to share the Zoom link:

https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84268367189?pwd=S1piYjJSSVFFZHgxWGtSUG4rQXNyZz09

In 2021 I plan to, among other things, continue writing and recording, performing live online, writing custom songs, giving online music lessons, and selling a few of my hand-painted Harmony Jars. And hopefully, after the vaccines make their way around the country, we can all see more of each other, live and in person. โ˜บ๏ธ

Stay safe and be well, ๐Ÿ’–

Live Stream Afterparties & Zoom Hangouts!

December 8, 2020

Winter is here! Brrrr!!! 

Okay, fine, it’s actually 60 degrees right now, here in Pompano Beach, Florida. But in the shade it actually feels quite cool. DON’T JUDGE ME! ๐Ÿ˜…

I do feel for you all up north, where I see current temps are in the 30s and below. Weather may be considered a mundane topic by some, but I find it fascinating. So much of our lives, for better and worse, is determined by weather. As a kid growing up in Connecticut, there was nothing better than a snow day…making snow forts in the front yard, sledding down the big hill at Beachland Park, and then coming inside exhausted at the end of the day with red noses, ready to warm up and drink hot chocolate. Childhood bliss. โ„๏ธโ›„๏ธ

Now that I’ve been a Floridian for over half my life, my blood is a little thinner (hence, the down vest and scarf at 60 degrees). But I still look forward to the cooler weather every year. The chance to be “cozy” is a very special thing that doesn’t really happen in summertime. So, despite the shoveling and de-icing and winter chores, I hope you’ll find time to relax and enjoy the coziness of the season. 

If you’d like to get cozy in front of your computer screen tonight, I’ll be playing live tunes, as I do every Tuesday, at 6PM on my Facebook page. Directly after, my Patreon subscribers are invited to a Zoom afterparty, where we’ll hang out “face to face” and chat about music, life, etc. It has been really great getting to know my Patreons, and having their support means the world to me during the time when live gigs are mostly a no-go. If you’re interested in subscribing, here’s the link to my Patreon page. I’ll be doing a “thank you” song to my current subscribers tonight, so today is a perfect time to sign up!

Since the holidays are approaching, I’d also like to mention that I’m currently offering custom, personalized songs (starting at $149), beginner guitar/voice/songwriting lessons for all ages ($25-40), and online musical telegrams (Shaunagrams? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜†) for $30 and up. All of which can make excellent holiday gifts for your loved ones. ๐Ÿค—Just reply to this email if you want more info.

Speaking of the holidays, I plan to check in again later in the month but just in case, I want to go ahead and wish you a happy and healthy holiday season, and please stay safe! Long-distance love and hugs to you,

Shauna

MY Favorite Songs For My Bday Live Stream Show!

October 22, 2020

Some people like to keep their birthday celebrations mellow. They may keep quiet about it, not wanting to hint or remind anyone of their upcoming “life anniversary”.

I am NOT one of those people so here’s your reminder that NEXT WEEK IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!!! WOOO!! 

๐Ÿค—๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‰
My actual b-day is Monday the 26th, but I celebrate Birthday Week. So I’m inviting you all to celebrate “with” me, at my live stream show / birthday party next Tuesday Oct 27th! A friend of mine (was it you Diane?) suggested that maybe I should do one of my weekly live streams with just MY favorites, so that’s my plan!! I’ll be counting down 5 of my favorite covers and 5 of my favorite originals. The live stream shows have been super fun, with friends joining in from across the country and around the world to say hello. I’d love for you to join us! It takes place every Tuesday from 6 – 7PM here on my Facebook page. 
 

For those of you who’ve subscribed to my new Patreon page, I’m also hosting an afterparty / open mic night on Zoom next Tuesday after the live stream show! This open mic will feature some special guest singer-songwriters who I’ve cajoled to perform my favorites of their songs for you. This will really be a special treat. The afterparty is for Patreon members only so if you’d like to subscribe, click here >> Patreon page

And as we head toward Halloween and then round that corner into the holiday season, amidst the crazy challenges we’ve faced this year, I just want to say that I hope you are taking good care of yourself and finding moments of joy and peacefulness. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed some days – I know I have! But please stay safe, stay well, and keep finding ways to enjoy the ride. 

Cheers   &   ๐Ÿ’–,

Shauna

Nature! Night skies! New Patreon page! And…November. 

October 12, 2020

Are we almost halfway through October already!? My goodness. This year, time seems to be moving extra fast and extra slow. ๐Ÿ˜…Which can be a good thing I guess – while spending more time at home, I’ve been better about taking a minute or two here and there to watch the blue jays, woodpeckers, finches (and sometimes parrots!) on my bird feeders. Also making time at the end of the month for a camping and kayaking weekend near Silver Springs, Florida! I’m sooo excited to get out of town (in a controlled and low-risk way) and get into nature! The pic above is the campsite I picked out. ๐Ÿ˜ŠI’m hoping that out there, further from city lights, we’ll catch the tail end (pun intended) of this month’s Orionids meteor shower. โญ๏ธโœจ๐Ÿค—

Aside from the nature time, I’ve been enjoying the time “with” friends from across the country and around the world during my weekly live stream shows! If you haven’t joined in yet, feel free to do so, Tuesdays at 6PM on Facebook. And since I’ve had some people ask how they can support my musical endeavors, I’m excited to announce that I’m launching a Patreon page! If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s a great platform for artists and creators of all types to offer fan subscriptions, in exchange for special perks like bonus songs, virtual hang outs, behind-the-scenes access to the creative process, etc. The first 50 subscribers will get a bonus gift and be included in a special “Thank You” song!! The page goes live Tuesday at noon. Starting then you can click this link to subscribe  >> Patreon page

One more thing – if you didn’t see it, last month I released a song, co-written with my friend Mack Harrell, called “Undaunted”. It’s about the strength and perseverance of our country’s political activists. I’m so proud to live in a country that values free speech, where we all have a voice, both in the political dialogue and at the polls. I’m dropping off my mail-in ballot tomorrow, and I hope that you’re planning to have your voice heard in this election as well. 

Cheers, long-distance hugs, and best wishes!! ๐Ÿ’–

First Day of Fall

September 22, 2020

Happy Autumn!  I snapped this selfie two years ago at Montreal Botanical Gardens, after (stealthily) climbing up into one of their beautiful oak trees to get my fall leaf fix. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

In Pompano Beach, Florida where I live, the season changes are pretty subtle. Most of the leaves don’t change, and the temperature “drop” might only be five or ten degrees. But the New Englander in me always looks forward to this time of year anyway. In Connecticut where I grew up, the first day of fall meant the anticipation of pumpkin carving, fall festivals, and a hike up Talcott Mountain in the crisp autumn air. It also meant my birthday was coming (Oct 26). ๐Ÿ˜Š

This year, the change of seasons arrives while we’re dealing with so many other changes. For most of us, the Covid 19 pandemic is still creating new challenges on a daily basis. We’re also gearing up, particularly today on National Voter Registration Day, for a momentous and historic election. And we’re grieving the loss of an incredible American icon and change-maker, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. ๐Ÿ˜” 

My plan is to deal with the challenges honestly and directly. Since Covid numbers are still high in south Florida, I have not been performing live, opting for weekly live stream shows instead. You can join my live stream for free (or leave a tip) on Tuesdays at 6PM on Facebook. As for the election, I’m registered to vote, and I’ll be making calls to remind others to get their ballots in the mail ASAP. And tonight in my live stream show, I’ll play a song called “I Come From Women”, in honor of “the Notorious RBG”. The song was written by one of my musical heroes, Amy Carol Webb, who’s an incredible musician as well as an advocate for social justice. With RBG’s passing, the torch is being passed to all of us to carry on the important work she did, advocating for gender equality and women’s rights. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

And just like RBG, my live stream show will not be all seriousness! Last week for example, I had a request for “Hey Ya!” by Outkast and things got weird – just go to 31:47 on the video to see for yourself. The week before, I made up an impromptu song about a Yeti eating tacos at the Kingshead Pub. Gotta have fun. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hope to see you tonight at 6PM on my facebook page for the free live stream show. And if not, no worries – just know that I’m thinking of you and wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous fall season! ๐Ÿ’–

Cheers,

Shauna

P.S. Next week my new album, Happy Thank You Yes More Please, turns 100 days old! ๐ŸŽ‰

If you haven’t listened yet you can buy it or listen for free here!

So that’s the plan, wish me luck and I hope you can join me for some of it. Have a good day and a safe, enjoyable weekend all!! ๐Ÿ’–

Album Update

April 28, 2020

Hello out there! My emails normally start with things like “I can’t believe it’s already March!” or “Happy Monday!”. But days and months recently seem to have taken on a new relativity. So I’ll start by saying, I hope you’re all faring well, staying safe, and making the best of these bizarre times. 

I’m now in week 7 of staying home here in the Ft. Lauderdale suburbs. Getting out for runs and walks but that’s pretty much it. Having some lovely phone catch ups with friends and family, and enjoying the extra time with the husband and our 3 kitties. Finding ways to give back where I can.

Musically, I’ve been busy as well. Here are some of the things I’ve been doing: 

Collaborating with other brands on sponsored live streams, like my appearance on Friday Night Sound Waves’ “Find Your Beach” streaming concert series. FNSW has been presenting some fantastic streaming shows – check out their page and enjoy! 

Offering “Intro to Songwriting” Zoom and FaceTime classes for folks of all ages! It’s a fun and healthy way to creatively engage yourself, your kids, or a group of friends with a new activity. No experience or instruments needed. Only $45 for the first session, reply to this email if you’d like more info. 

Getting involved with the “Virtual Run to Feed America 5K”! I’ll be singing the national anthem on May 9th at 8:50AM on their live stream before the race kicks off! Then I’ll be running the 5K here in my neighborhood to raise money for Feeding America. To learn more, Click here. You can sign up for the 5K yourself, or make a donation toward my fundraising goal by clicking “donate” and then click on my name. 

The other “finish line” I’m running toward is the release of my new full-length album! Updated release date: June 23. My goal is 500 pre-orders! Click here to pre-order if you haven’t yet – the digital copy is only $8, or $10 (+ shipping) for a signed physical copy. Or order two copies to share one with a friend. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your support is very very much appreciated.  <3  

And as some of you know, I’m doing live streaming shows on my Facebook page – I’ll be on tonight at 6PM! Planning to do some additional days and times in May, so reply to this email with your preferences!

More updates coming very soon re: the release of the first single from the album, etc! In the mean time, wishing you all the best. Please keep in touch. Sending you a virtual hug.

Going Live Tonight

March 31, 2020

How’s everybody holding up??

By now, many of us have lost count of how many days it has been since we left our houses, or showered, or even what day of the week it is. So here’s my understanding of it: 

a) If your job can be done from home, and you’re doing this right, then it has been a while now since you left the house. Thank goodness we still have books, music, (cautious) walks outside, and friends to chat with. 

b) If you don’t remember when your last shower was, it’s probably time.

c) Acccording to the internet, today is TUESDAY! Which means that I will be performing live on Facebook tonight starting at 6PM, EDT. Here is the link to my Facebook page. This is my new weekly live streaming show which I plan to do at least through the end of April. It is FREE to watch, although tips are appreciated. Unless you are my parents, in-laws, or siblings in which case STOP TIPPING ME already! Your money is no good here. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Also, in case you missed my email last week, my new CD is now available for pre-order and it will be out May 12! If you’re excited to hear it please let me know: Here is the link to pre-order. 

Thanks so much, hope to see you at 6!

My New Album! Pre-Orders Start May 12!!

March 24, 2020

Hello there!

I hope you are holding up while hunkering down in this surreal phase of life as we battle against the spread of Covid 19. So many of my friends are suddenly jobless, with the entertainment and hospitality industries at a stand-still. Thankfully, many folks are finding creative ways to keep making music and support one another. It’s a beautiful reminder of how we can be there for each other, in good times and bad. I encourage you to follow your favorite local artists and small businesses on social media and offer them your support in any way you can. 

One thing that has NOT been thrown off-course by this shutdown is the progress on my new album. As planned, it will be released into the world on Tuesday May 12! And for the first time, in addition to writing and performing the songs I will also be producing and publishing the album myself. It will feature warm, homey vocals, acoustic guitar, percussion, and some other lil’ odds and ends (mostly cat meows). 

I’m so excited to share these songs with you, please pre-order your copy if you’re excited to hear it! Each pre-order makes me do a little happy dance, and also gets me a little closer to my goals. If I get pre-orders for…

…200 copies, I’ll be able to make another record next year.

…300 copies, I can make another record, and make a couple videos for this one.

…500 copies, I’ll make another record, make videos, invest in promotion – nice!

     **and maybe even make the Billboard charts!!**

…1,000 copies, The Dream! Make another record, make videos, and potentially do a tour later this year (if/when Covid 19 gets under control)! 

The first 100 people to pre-order will get a signed and numbered (#1-100) copy of the album, plus their name listed in the liner notes as a thank you! So click here to put in your order now!! 

There’s an $8 digital download option, or $12 for a signed copy of the physical CD (either way, I make about the same). And order an extra copy for a friend! Or for the whole family! Plus they’d make great coasters!  ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

After you pre-order the album, head over to my Facebook page where I’ll be doing a live stream concert from my backyard from 6 – 7pm tonight. Thank you SO MUCH for your support. Can’t wait to share these songs and this next part of the musical journey with you. 

~ Shauna

~ The story behind the album ~ 

I’ve been writing songs since I was 5, it has always been a part of me. I recorded my first solo EP in 2005 and three more since then. After my 2017 album “Supposed To Be” I stopped recording for a bit and just enjoyed playing my live shows, including opening gigs for 10,000 Maniacs and the Gin Blossoms.

In summer of 2019 I felt like some new songs were about to happen, and little by little, they did. That September I wrote a song called “The Flow” – a percussion-based, earnest and joyful song, which helped me set the tone for the songs that soon followed. I decided that this time I would produce the album myself, at home. With my MacBook, a Scarlett Focusrite audio interface, a few mics and some advice from friends I was able to get started. Some days it has been fun and easy, dancing around my “studio” with shakers and tambourines. Other days have been a struggle with technical difficulties (pro tip: it’s probably user error). Or other challenges, like when music suddenly took a backseat so I could support my 88-yr-old Grandma during her fight against breast cancer. But thankfully she is doing great (now cancer-free!), and the songs are evolving, emerging, turning into actual things. It’s so cool to me how each new album, each new song, is a new chance to grow and to learn, to express something. And I’m so appreciative of all of you who are taking this ride along with me. <3

March Shows Cancelled

March 16, 2020

Some weird times we are in right now, huh?! I don’t know about you but I’m having lots of feelings about all this – fear, confusion, frustration. But also optimism because I see many, many people making good decisions and some tough choices in order to keep their communities safe from the spread. #DontbeaSpreader ! 

Musicians, music venues and affiliated businesses will be taking a very hard hit in all of this. Many are doing live streaming shows online during this time, so check out your favorite artists’ pages, catch some intimate live streaming concerts, and leave a tip if you can to help keep them afloat. As for the music venues, now would be a great time to buy gift certificates online to show your support! If they’re not offering them through their websites, reach out to them and see if you can buy one via PayPal or Venmo.

I’ve cancelled my local shows for the rest of the month (at least) and will be doing some live shows, starting with Tuesday night at 6:30PM! Tune in here to join the music / virtual hanging out / St. Paddy’s day cheers’ing! I’ll also be making an announcement about the upcoming release of my new album. : ) 

Hope you all are doing well and making the best of it. Sending elbow bumps, head nods, and long-distance hugs.

Love Songs

February 11, 2020

Happy February! I hope your 2020 is going well so far. All is well with me – I started off the year in Norway on a quick trip with my guy, where we hunted down some northern lights (with some success), piloted a dogsled (awesome!) and enjoyed walking around Oslo and Tromso in lovely chilly weather. I’ll be posting photos on Instagram, one of these days… 

Since then, I’ve been working on a project: my new album!! I am recording and producing it in my home studio in Pompano Beach, FL. It’s an exciting and slightly scary endeavor for me; I’ve worked with some great producers in the past, hitting all the computer buttons, and helping me decide if a song needs more guitars or one more chorus or whatever, and this time it’s basically just up to me. Eek! But I’ve been enjoying the chance to let the songs just sort of speak up for themselves. It’s going to be an acoustic-based record with some fun percussion, harmonies, and sprinkling in the other instruments I’ve been collecting over the years. Very much looking forward to you hearing it in just a few months!! To follow along with the progress, you can catch my updates on Facebook. And you can always reply to this email if you have thoughts or questions. Your encouragement is always appreciated. : ) 

In the mean time, feel free to catch me at one of my upcoming South Florida shows! And since Valentine’s Day is almost here, here’s a Valentine for you: one of my more recent love songs, called You Are The World To Me, as performed by my band and me last year at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale: https://youtu.be/F5cGfdPGXYE?t=912 . Hope you enjoy! 

Sending LOVE to you all.

Live Stream Show Tonight On Facebook, 8:30PM!

August 12, 2019

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was good; I performed at the Blue Martini in Ft. Lauderdale, co-hosted a flower crown making workshop for some really fun ladies, and played some vibe-y mood music for a lovely yoga class sponsored by Holisticrats Yoga & Wellness. And found some time to chill at home with the husband and our two cats.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Tonight I will be doing my second live streaming show on Facebook! If you want to tune in, just go to my Facebook page at 8:30PM to 9:15ish for some live original songs, a cover song or two, and whatever else comes to mind. And I’ll probably play my newest version of “Underneath”, which has evolved since the first live stream show.

Tuesday 8:30PM-11:30PM is Kingshead Pub Open Mic, 2692 N. University Drive Sunrise FL

That’s all for now, have a great rest of your Monday and I hope to “see” you tonight!

Hello hello! Happy Thursday, I hope your week is going well! All is fine here, shows are good, fam is well, thanks for asking. Had a great time opening for Donavon Frankenreiter a couple weeks back at the Culture Room! So fun. Pics below. And last weekend, took a trip to Washington DC. Visited some incredible museums and gained some knowledge. Might have to write a song about it. 

Wanted to let you know about some events I’ve got coming up this week. These are mostly in South Florida, but for those of you who aren’t nearby, you can check out my live streaming show on Monday!

Thursday 5 to 8PM is my weekly show at the Buddha Sky Bar in Delray Beach. It’s a great spot for martinis ($5 during happy hour), excellent sushi, and music by me. : )

Friday 4 to 7PM I’ll be performing at the Blue Martini in Ft. Lauderdale. This is not a weekly show but I am booked there every Friday this month, so stop by if you’re around. 

Saturday 11AM to 1:30PM I’ll be co-hosting Cocktails & Flower Crowns at Spazio in Ft. Lauderdale. $45 ticket includes a make-your-own (silk) flower crown class, fancy cocktails and appetizers. If you sign up today you can use promo code SPLASH to save 25% off the ticket.

Sunday 9AM to 9:30AM ish, I’ll be co-hosting a yoga class with live “mood music”! This event will be out on the patio at Lady and the Mug coffee shop in Coral Springs. This event is FREE to attend, you just have to sign up on the Holisticrats.com website in order to reserve your spot – only a few spots left!! 

Monday 8:30 to 9:15PM, I’ll be doing my second live-streaming “Tunes from the Porch” show on Facebook Live! Tune in from anywhere by going to my facebook music page.

Hello there! How’ve you been?? Doing well, I hope. Things are good on my end! Been playing a bunch of fun shows, including a show at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale opening for the Gin Blossoms!! It was my first time playing that venue, and I’ve been seeing some of my favorite bands perform there for many years, so it felt really cool to be standing on that stage. And the Gin Blossoms were super nice! What a fun evening. Here’s the link to the video of my full performance live from the Culture Room

Besides that, I’ve been doing a bit of traveling, visiting friends and relatives in Connecticut and then out to Austin TX to play some music with my super talented former band-mate Ryan Haire. Hopefully will be posting a video clip or two from that soon! 

Coming up next: a bunch of South Florida shows in May and June, including this Friday May 10 in Fort Lauderdale for the FRIDAY NIGHT SOUND WAVES concert series! This is our third year performing in the series which showcases great local bands as well as Fort Lauderdale businesses, and it is always a BLAST! My full band and I will be jamming out that night from 6 to 9PM, right on the beach!! Feel free to RSVP for that event here on Facebook

Please check out my website calendar here for a list of upcoming shows, including some Wednesday nights at the Old Key Lime House in Lantana, some Thursdays in Delray Beach at Buddha Sky Bar’s First Floor Buddha Garden, some Sundays at Blue Martini in Sunrise, and more.

Thanksgiving

November 22, 2017

Dear friends,

This week, I’m thinking of all the things I’m thankful for. And I want to let you know that I am very thankful for you. Your encouragement – for my new record, at my live shows, on social media, etc. – has been so wonderful for me this year! As a way of saying thanks, here’s a link to listen to my recently released EP Supposed To Be for FREE on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/17eQTngmM5lnuuXu1K61vd

This 4-song EP was released under the moniker Young Trees, which is a new musical project of mine. I invite you to check it out if you haven’t already, share it with friends, and let me know what you think! You can also purchase digital downloads and physical copies of the EP via iTunes and Bandcamp

Another project I worked on this year was this theme song for a non-profit organization called the Harvest Drive: https://youtu.be/OFfww1wMOMM The Harvest Drive brings together members of the S. Florida community in order to provide food, clothing, toys and more to local families going through hard times. If you’re looking for a worthy cause to donate to this (or any) time of year, please consider this one. For more info visit www.harvestdriveflorida.com

I’ll be in touch with more music and updates in 2018! In the mean time, I’m wishing you and your loved ones a safe, healthy, joyful, delicious holiday season! And if you’re in the area, come by and say hello at one of my upcoming shows.  : )

Cheers,

Shauna
