This last month has been a whirl wind for me! I, being of the creative nature, could not hold down my day job. So I'm happy and proud to say that I am no longer employed by the man. He was killing me softly! so all of you out there who are sitting behind the four walls of cubical hell, I hope you find a way out just like I did. That is if you think it's that hot in there, but I hope you love your job!
I have a couple of things to tell you all.
1. I'm extremely proud to be doing a cd release party for "Dial Tone" on March 26th! We'll be pulling out all the stops with a full band, violins and trumpets oh my! I really hope all of you can come because it would mean a lot to me to have you there (hi-dive, 7th s. broadway). I've honestly worked so hard on making this album. It's been about a year since I started this project. Take a listen to "dial tone" if you haven't heard the song- go here
2. I'm going to SXSW! if you are out there please stop by and see us!! send me an email if you have any inside information that we need to know about, we're all about getting into as many parties as possible- even if we have to impersonate, jump walls, snag other people's badges to do so. ha ha. ok we won't be breaking the law, maybe...
come to the hi-dive on the 26th!!!!
just wanted to let you all know that Teen Pass Out, the tape label Bree Davies started with bandmate Valerie Franz, is putting out its first release this Sunday, March 14th!
The show is also a tour kick-off for friends Alex Edgeworth and Robin Edwards, a.k.a. Lust-Cats Of the Gutters, who head to Oakland next week.

The Congress Releases Debut Album, March 11 at The Walnut Room in Denver, CO
“By the time this thing makes its official debut in March, the weather will (hopefully) be warm enough to justify rolling through town with the windows down, a smile on your face and The Congress keeping your head bopping.” - Kiernan Maletsky, Westword
“You can't really understand until you see them live... to hear art this good, to experience such a series of incredible moments is not something you forget.” – Meredith Ripple, Magazine 33
“Best new albums for 2010” – Chris K, The Colorado Sound
The Congress, a five-month-old Americana Rock band from Denver will be releasing their debut album, titled The Congress, on March 11 at The Walnut Room. The album was recorded at Macy Sound Studios by John Macy, who is well known for engineering Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Matt Morris, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and Gladys Knight, as well as playing pedal steel with Ricky Skaggs and The Railbenders. The album was co-produced with Daniel Clarke, who is well known for performing, recording, writing, and producing for Ryan Adams, K. D. Lang, and Mandy Moore among others. Both Macy and Clarke will be joining The Congress on pedal steel and keyboards, as well as a full horn section, for the March 11 CD Release party at The Walnut Room.
The album was met with high praise by press and critics in Richmond, VA, where The Congress performed for an immediately sold out pre-release party for friends and family. “Their self-titled CD is phenomenal, and each track blows me away,” says Magazine33's Meredith Ripple. On the Colorado front, The Congress has received radio airplay on KBCO and KTCL in Denver, and in Fort Collins, Summit County, Aspen & Carbondale, and Telluride as well. The Congress has also been making an impact in the global community, as the song “Back Where You Are” was donated for use in a Haitian Relief commercial campaign airing continuously on CNN and CNN Headline news.
The Congress will perform at The Walnut Room on March 11, 2010. Doors open at 7:30pm with special guest openers Science Parter and Eleanor. Tickets are $12 in advance at TheWalnutRoom.com, and $15 day of show, and include a free copy of the album. Visit TheCongressMusic.com for more information.
