I had to start packing for the next tour a few weeks ago because as you’ve probably seen on Facebook, school started this week and it takes every minute of the day to keep up with my kids. My 7 year old twin daughters started 2nd grade, and the biggest challenge so far has been: What to Wear. (And I thought that was MY issue!) Jette’s dressing in what I can only describe as Jazz Fusion Fashion and Perry’s look is Dinosaur Hip Hop. The first week is shaping up to be a great one – the kids love their teachers, we finished all the homework a day early and no one has lice. đŸ˜‰

I leave Saturday to meet up with my Blue Élan Records label mate, Keith Harkin. Keith is well known for being part of the Irish band “Celtic Thunder,” but he has traded in the kilt for good ol’ blue jeans, singing his original material on the new record “Mercy Street.” I’ll be joining him in Indianapolis 8/21, Knoxville 8/23 and San Clemente 9/14.

In between dates with Keith, I have a lot more shows and home invasions (house concerts) so please check my tour schedule! I’m still booking home invasions throughout the year so don’t be shy – email or message me on Facebook! And be sure to watch my adventures from the road via the videos I post at facebook.com/cindyalexander.music.

Before you go, please check out my new video for “Heaven’s Wall”  by clicking here. It was directed by my super talented friend, Nicholas McCarthy (known for the horror film “The Pact”), with beautiful camera work by Boyd Hobbs. Produced by Stephanie Paris. The entire crew was phenomenal: Jessica Mahnke (Prod. Designer), Paul Losada (Playback/Sound), Andrew Shankweiler (Gaffer), Nick Perry (Key Grip), Alex Dumas (Swing), Preston Phillips (First AC), Camille Calvin (Wardrobe), Ashley Rudder for MAC (Makeup), Bree Moffet (Hair), Jacob Rachinski (Art Asst.), and Matteo Saradini (Post/VFX). Special thanks to Kim Ferry for consulting and Mary Ann Brown (Energetic Jewelry) for the gorgeous custom headpiece.

Here’s a little behind the scenes piece of trivia. If you wonder what Jette (my angel/ the heart that walks outside my body) is whispering in my ear…it’s “Love Factory”  I know what the video means to me – but I’m curious as to what it means to you!! Please “like” on YouTube and leave a comment if you are so inclined.  Thanks for the support XOC
