Wow, this has been a crazy winter already here in Oregon… I’m writing this with snow still visible out my window, and rain falling heavily on the roof!
Because of the unexpectedly large snow event last week, the Local Roots live show was postponed. We do have a new date though – mark your calendars for Wednesday April 12th!
We’ve added a couple of new shows to our calendar… in addition to playing at Troon in Carlton on Feb 11, we’ll also be there Memorial Day weekend (May 27th). We’ll also be back at the McMinnville Farmers’ Market on August 17th. We’re continuing to book more shows for the year, so keep checking our shows page for the latest additions! And mark your calendars now to join us at Troon Tasting Room on Saturday February 11th!
We are super excited to announce that our 6 song EP Possibility will be available on October 1st! Check your preferred online music source (iTunes, Tidal, Amazon, Spotify, etc.) and get ready to download the album! (You can hear the title song right now on our Bandcamp page: https://luminousheart.bandcamp.com/releases)
We want to send out a big thank you again to our fundraiser supporters… you made Possibility possible! We emailed out download codes for the album this week, so if you’re a backer and didn’t receive the newsletter with your code, please let us know.
Our EP Release party will be Friday September 30th from 6:30-8:30 at Willamette Valley Vineyards tasting room in downtown McMinnville. There’s no cover fee, and we’ll play for you and provide some light snacks, as well as having the EP available for sale. We’ll also leave some time to just sip and chat! (The tasting room will have wine for sale by the glass or bottle.) Please come on down and show your support for live, local music!
And thanks again to all our friends, family and fans. Whether you backed our fundraiser, or have given us words or hugs of encouragement, or attended our shows, you’ve all helped us bring our dream to life, and we are so grateful. We are heading up to Seattle next month to share our music and vision with a wider audience, and we’ll do so knowing that we have your love and support!
Thanks to all who have supported our fundraiser – your support means so much to us. We are very close to our goal, and really appreciate all of the donations that have been received, both on here and at our shows over the past couple of months! If you’ve donated, you’ll be getting a newsletter with updates from us within the next couple of days.
If you’ve had any difficulty donating in the past few hours, the problem should now be solved, and we’re going to leave the campaign page active for an extra 24 hours (until midnight tomorrow 7/6).
We have exciting news about the recording project, so stay tuned, and please pledge if you’d like to get a reward and behind-the-scenes updates as we proceed with the project!
Also, Yamhill valley friends… market your calendars for next Thursday July 14 – we’ll be performing all afternoon at the McMinnville Farmers’ Market!
xo, Val and Jamie
Val is playing at the Local Roots Music Festival on Saturday April 16 at 10:35am, and Jamie will be joining her to sing back-up, plus they’ll play at least a couple of Luminous Heart songs. Tickets are only $15 for a whole day of fantastic musics… hope we’ll see you there!
