Carrboro Music Festival

I recently had the opportunity to play guitar and sing (for the first time!) in front of a crowd of strangers at the Carrboro Music Festival. The hours leading up to this were spent with me constantly checking the time and feeling a bit queasy. My friend Louise, who is an excellent musician, sang along with me to this cover of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind.” Haha, yeah, I actually covered that song. And then I actually decided to sing that cover in public. After the show, I did have one woman tell me she started to cry… not because it was bad… not because it was good… but because all of her children live in NYC and she misses them. So, yeah, there’s that.

Sorry for the poor quality. I only had my Macbook to record this on.
