It's been nearly a year since my single and video for "One More Kiss" were released. That single is available on all of your favorite music platforms, and the official video for "One More Kiss" is available on my Amelia Blake Youtube channel! Hard to believe, but the album still isn't finished. We had a few setbacks with the covid scare, and that slowed down an already slow process. The new goal is to have it finished by the end of 2021. I am itching to do an album of cover songs, so it will take discipline not to let that get in the way of finishing what I've started.
During the downtime of the pandemic, you may have caught me doing a few facebook live shows. I have yet to find a better platform to replace the defunct Concert Window site. My weekly gig Saturday evenings in Jefferson, Texas continues, at least for the rest of 2021, and for that, I am grateful. I am hoping to start doing youtube live shows, though the video quality will not likely be as good as it was on fb live. Twitch is the newest platform I've signed up to experiment with. I'll keep you posted here with links once I get that going.
Dan and I attended the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in January 2020, and we performed at the Indie Collaboratie Show at the El Portal Theatre while we were out there.
We did a lot of traveling during 2018 and 2019, including flying to the UK twice. The first trip included Liverpool to tour both Paul McCartney's and John Lennon's childhood homes. The second trip included a three hour tour of Abbey Road Studios in London. To say it would be a dream come true to record there is an understatement!
After we left there, we walked by Paul McCartney's London home (which he's owned since the year I was born). You can see the photo of me by his front gate to your right.
In other news, I have begun work on a movie project that will keep me in the south for the next few years. I am hoping to find a larger home in East Texas soon to accommodate all of our instruments, equipment and pets.
