|This is me!|
I was often asked to play bass in various bands, as it was an anomaly to see a girl playing any instrument besides the piano, much less a rhythm instrument. Apparently, I wasn't bad at it either. I ended up filling the space as the original bass player for ENATION because of a recommendation via one of my previous band mates. It really is a fun instrument.
It seems now, that what once was an anomaly is more common, as young women all over the world are finding the courage to be themselves and pick up the tools they feel can best express the story they wish to tell, whether it's their voice, an instrument, a pen, a hammer, a camera, or a racket.
|This is Annie Clements!|
I got to see Annie the other night while she performed with her current gig (watch out Sugarland... Hehehe). My friends and I drove the three hours north to Everett, WA to say hello and catch up, which would have been more than worth the drive itself, but we were also blessed with the opportunity to watch Annie, her husband, and the rest of the incredible musicians sharing the coolest stage ever, put on one of the best shows I have ever seen. (I know I said this about Sarah McLachlan, but "one of" isn't THE best...it's one of...right?!) It was a blast! You have to catch this tour before it's over. So moving, so fun, and so makes me excited for Everly to hit the road!

Thank you, Annie Clements for simply being you!
