In January 2003 I joined The Jolenes, which means this month marks 10 years of playing music with my friend Katy. Even though there was a short break there in the middle*, we always knew we’d play music together again.
Last February we formed The Secret Ceremony with our lovely and talented friend Susan. We have been having a lot of fun making dark, witchy rock-n-roll together, and we have our first show on Saturday, February 2.
Over the past few months I also started playing music with my husband Chas. I’ve never been in two bands at the same time before, and I like it a lot. It’s interesting to see how I take what I learn from each project and apply it to the other one, even though the two bands are so different from one another.
Also, I’ve always wanted to learn how to sing, and 2013 is the year it’s gonna happen. Chas & I are taking voice lessons together—our first one is on January 13. We are both really pumped!
One final note on this topic… I love that music and fashion go hand-in-hand and have always influenced each other. It can’t be denied that there’s a certain flavor of bad-assery that goes into playing music. I’m excited to explore all of this on the blog in the coming year as well.
