New Year, New Website!
Okay, okay... I'll admit that this shiny, new, work-in-progress website is actually thanks to the fact that my original domain, jolawry.com, was hacked and wrested from my clutches, necessitating a rebuild at this new location, www.jolawry.net. But hey, I'm happy to be making lemonade here, and I have always been a fan of fresh starts. And 2018 looks to be a doozy! The newest, most exciting challenge of this coming year will be learning to balance motherhood and touring, GULP! Will Vinson and I recently welcomed our gorgeous daughter, Ruby, to the world, and to say that we are delighted to have her join our family band is an understatement.
Also this coming year I'll be welcoming another new "baby"... no, it's not Irish twins, but rather album number 3, The Bathtub and the Sea. Many of you lovely friends will be familiar with the music from that record already, having sneak-peeked at it by participating in my PledgeMusic campaign. THANK YOU! For the rest of y'all, it will be available to the public in Spring 2018, and I can't wait to share it with you.
Another thing I'm looking forward to is rejoining Fred Hersch as vocalist with the Fred Hersch Pocket Orchestra. Fred's music is at once beautiful, challenging, thrilling - sometimes terrifyingly demanding, but always fun. We have some FHPO shows booked up and down the East Coast this spring, check out my tour page for more details.
That's all for now! Happy New Year to you all - I hope to see you on the road somewhere, soon!
