Hey everyone! Whew! it’s been a bit of a whirlwind the last two months. Let’s start with the big stuff!! First of all, I moved to San Francisco in June (what?!) but some pretty big stuff brought me back to NYC for a few weeks.
This Friday, July 31, I will be showcased as an Emerging Artist on the mainstage of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in upstate New York. This is a HUGE honor, and one I’ve been crossing my fingers about for a long time. it’s a juried showcase, so if you’re at the fest, make sure you see me play (I’m on second!) and vote for me as “Most Wanted” so I get formally booked next year!!
Second, I am performing in NYC on Tuesday, August 11 at Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage Two. This is one of the best stages anywhere in the world, and I am so happy that my visit-home gig is on this stage with some of my best pals playing in the band — Chris Kelly, Scott Stein, and Scott Tofte. It’s a free show and it will ROCK. 196 Allen St (just south of Houston), FREE.
Last but certainly not least, I was recently featured on CBS/Radio.com by my dear friend Annie Reuter. She’s an incredible journalist and really represented my story in such a positive light. Thanks, again Annie…you folks can check out the article here: http://radio.com/2015/06/10/mya-byrne-trans-roots-singer-solo-debut-album-as-i-am/
So that’s about it for now. There will definitely be more stuff coming up, with 3 upcoming shows in the Bay Area Aug 19, 20, and 23, Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes at Philadelphia Folk Festival, and other fall festivities. Keep in touch and if you know anyone on the West Coast you think I should meet (or who might want to book me!), let me know!
