I played a couple private parties in northern california this weekend. I’m still slowly working my way down to LA. I’ve gotten a few gigs and some odd jobs to help get me farther south. Comparisons I got this weekend were Jewel and Melissa Ethridge. I don’t know if I’ve ever listened to any Melissa Ethridge although I had a short Jewel phase as a teen; in which I learned her song hey little sister. I would play it in coffee shops when I was fifteen and people thought it was my song. They would ask me how the story ended if my sister was all right. I don’t think many people heard that song but it was the best song of all her squirly girl tunes. *poeina
