Overdue London blog entry 1:
I left July 2 for London to sing at the Jazz Café. It was one of the many amazingly divine trips of my life. I traveled with a few extra days in my itinerary to allow time for writing and visiting Paris. I was scheduled for interviews, a show, and a recording session. Many thanks to Derek Sivers for introducing me to AirBnB, which is where I met an awesome new fan and my roomy even came to support me in Camden.
Before I left, I had been trying to contact Adele and Amy to let them know I’d be there. I wanted Amy to be my fan. I had recently been playing her Frank album for the last four months after I wore out Back to Black which became an inspiration for “Ah God”, a song on my new album. I was in London during the ITunes festival, and I just knew we’d cross paths. I will miss her so much. She was like an old friend. I cannot tell you how that album spoke for me many times.
It is hard to begin my blogging here and now after the trip happened a month ago, but I took notes. Please stay tuned for a blessed log of my adventure.
Here is a picture of me and my airbnb roomy in Camden’s Jazz Cafe. She represents my day 1.
