Soooo, this past week has been interesting. Supporting my grandkids in their endeavors is one of my favorite pastimes. Two weeks ago I was with Deven in Des Moines cheering him on as he earned an “All American” Award for dance at his dance team’s regional meet.
This last week on Friday, I took Jocelyn to Hutch (a Midtown furniture store) to play for patrons at an art show. Jocelyn really enjoyed playing and the audience was appreciative. Nicholas Huff, the owner of the store asked Jocelyn to come back on Monday to shoot a video. So I brought her back and she shot the video and posted it on his YouTube station for Hutch Sessions. Truly a generous fan that wanted to share this music with his friends.
Well in one week, this video has been viewed over 400 times. It is catching fire and it is fun to watch people’s reactions to it. Not only that, but then HearNebraska.org saw it and featured it on their website. I posted the video at Singers & Songwriters on Google+ and Jocelyn got an email from Joshua Bachar, a composer in Prescott, AZ, who enjoyed the video and commented “Wonderful”. Later then next day, Jocelyn heard from a producer here in Omaha. The “buzz” is getting around and it is really great to see.
While playing at the 402 Arts Collective yesterday, a producer in Lincoln texted Jocelyn about playing at the Zoo Bar in Lincoln soon. He is also interested in talking with her about her music. This just gets better every day.
