Yes, City Songbird has been m.i.a. lately... at least in the blogosphere. I've been pretty active elsewhere, believe it or not. For one thing, I've got this band, see... and we've been writing some music, see... and performing regularly in Chicago, see... so much so that (yes, I'm going to say it again) we've finally gone and made a name for ourselves, see... No really, see. Right here:
Oops! Wrong picture! er... sorry! ... er, where did I put that file...? Oh yes, here we go:
Much better. Or at least more informative.
That's right, folks, we're officially a band! With a real, cool band website, to boot! (Please check it out and let us know what you think!) We've each and all been working on some new material (rather faithfully, if I may say so, for working-class people with day jobs) and have been able to debut, on average, about three new songs every month. June is no exception, so we'll be bringing some fresh tunes to CityGrounds coffee bar in Lincoln Park this Saturday (June 11), from 7 to 9pm. So, if you like folk, jazz, singer/songwriter, or blues, please do come out and hear our fusion of all these styles and more.
In addition to playing at our favorite coffee spot, we're on the prowl for some new venues to visit this Summer. If you have any suggestions, please do let me know. I'll do my best to update you on our schedule, but of course the best way to keep track of all-things-Thornfield is to check regularly thornfieldmusic.com, where you'll find all you need to know about us, and a few extra things thrown in for good measure. And if you're all about the social media connections out there, you can also find and become fans of Thornfield on facebook, follow us on twitter, and listen to us on ReverbNation or myspace.
Well, time for me to be about practicing... or convincing Jenna to get that awesome tattoo...
Reader's Poll: Should we encourage Eric to let that facial hair grow? I'm kinda drawn to it, myself...
