This month I'm going to Austin to play at SXSW! Check out my tour dates here! I just finished making the flyer. :-)
In other news, the Beat Buddy Guitar Pedal has released the video I made for them on Youtube! Last month they put it up on their facebook page and it got over 1,000 likes. I am working on more pedal demos at the moment so stay tuned for those. The Beat Buddy is a Drum Machine Pedal I use for songwriting, and practicing guitar. I basically can control the drum beat as I play a song. Check out the video for more info. This video is also featured on the Beat Buddy Website at http://mybeatbuddy.com/
This year I have also been playing at a lot of flea markets and farmer's markets in LA including the Melrose Trading Post, Altadena Farmer's Market, and So Cal Etsy Guild and I have caught the attention of an online magazine called Roots Revival Co! The magazine features small businesses, artists, musicians, and handmade crafts! With that said, I have an idea to start a blog on my website about my experience street performing. It will include info about where to busk, how to set up, what to bring, what songs to play, and what gear to buy!
Here's a snippet of "For You Who Dream" from Top Tune! I love this song! Thanks @luminouslupe333 #TopTune #katieferrara #shanealexandermusic
Well I got a pink ticke to play on the Pier from 4-7pm today. I'll be right next to re bumper cars on star 18! In the meantime I met an artist next to Hot Dog on a Stick and he did my portrait. I think he got my cat eyes down well. :-) #katieferrara @katieferraramusic #santamonica #pier #art #portrait
I'm in Santa Monica now hoping to performs again on the pier. I had some time to kill before going to the ticket man so I finished the bridge to my song " I Want You" in my car! Here's a snippet of the chorus. I need someone to song harmony on it. I think I might try and play this at the Fox and Hounds tonight or at an open mic. :-) #katieferrara @katieferraramusic #santamonica #newsong #iwantyou #cartune #sunday
Guess who won Top Tune tonight?! I wrote a song called "For You Who Dream" with Shane Alexander and we won!!! #katieferrara #shanealexander #TopTune @katieferraramusic @shanealexandermusic
Tonight I'm playing with my new hammer called "The Engle". I got it at the SXSW Gear Expo! I went to the booth and started messing around with it and so they gave me one. This thing is so cool! Now I can play percussion on guitar! :-) #katieferrara #theengle #guitarhammer @katieferraramusic @theengle #newinstrument #sxswgearexpo
Well look what came in the mail today! Sennheiser you are so awesome! You really know how to take good care of your customers! I put the sticker from the care package in my guitar case with the other stickers I'm collecting from my travels. Thank you so much for all the cool merch! #Sennheiser #microphones #katieferrara @katieferraramusic @sennheiser #bestmicrophone #singer #losangeles
You know what I'm excited about right now?! All the new music I picked up at SXSW! I think my favorite album right now is the Burnt Tongues Cassette featuring Gayle Skidmore and Minor Birds. They get extra points for presentation! I listened to them in the car on the way back from Texas. I can't wait to hear my friend Dan in "The Ghosts" and Gabe Kubanda, Captain Squeegee and Demitasse! This Athena CD Joy left in my car. I think it should be good! #newmusic #theghosts #demitasse #captainsqueegee #gayleskidmore #minorbirds #gabekubanda #athena #coolbands @captainsqueegee @gabekubanda @theghosts @gayleskidmore @minorbirds @bedlambrecords
Here's another one from yesterday! Today I'm going through pictures and getting organized. I gotta practice for my gigs this weekend! I'm playing at the Monrovia Farmer's Market, Top Tune and the Santa Monica promenade! #claremeans #katieferrara #guayaki #desert @katieferraramusic @claremeans #arizona #roadtrip
We're going through Phoenix, Arizona taking stops along the way in the desert. I'm staying refreshed and energized with my Guayaki Yerba Mate! It's the only drink I like while on the road. :-) #katieferrara #joyautumn @katieferraramusic @joyautumnmusic @yerbamateguayaki #yerbamateguayaki #phoenix #arizona #desert #roadtrip #sxsw #planetlarecords @planetlarecords #yerbayes #guayaki @guayaki
Clare and are are exploring Tucson, Arizona and we went into a Pawn Shop. They have all sorts of neat stuff! I looked at all their baby amps and ukuleles. This was the funniest thing we found! Lol #katieferrara #tucson #arizona @katieferraramusic
