“I Know We’ll Get There” is a song that is near and dear to our hearts. We dedicate it to anyone who is working on a dream.
Four years ago this week, Lesleigh and I were in NYC, competing in the VH1 & Republic Records’ “Make a Band Famous” competition. It was a 24-hour battle of the bands, live-streamed all over the world.
In the overnight round of the contest, we were given just a few hours to write a brand new song from scratch. Sleep-deprived but fueled by the support of our incredible friends and fans, we wrote our song, “I Know We’ll Get There.”
Every time we sing this song, we’re grateful for #MemmelNation and the hundreds of thousands of votes that got us to 4th place (out of 2,500+ bands!).
I’m excited to be an artist-in-residence this semester, working on songwriting with the students at Van Hise Elementary in Madison, Wisconsin!
Over the course of the past two months, I’ve been assembling videos, interacting with students via Skype, and brainstorming about songwriting. This week, we’re concluding our work together with a week-long in-person school visit and concert.
I’m excited to work and collaborate with these aspiring songwriters!
From Nashville Ballet: You may recognize our Company Artist Gerald Watson from performances at TPAC, but during Emergence with The Bluebird Cafe, he’ll take on the role of choreographer in collaboration with musician Tony Memmel to bring you new work only hours in the making!
Watson and Memmel are one of 14 groups presenting work during this year’s edition of Emergence and will be featured in tomorrow’s opening night lineup.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been asked to headline the Nashville, TN/Southern Kentucky Lights Fest event this Saturday! I play from 7-8pm, and there are still some tickets available. Click Here to get yours today!
