Today is March 8th, International Women’s Day. According to Wikipedia, it is a celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. As a singer/songwriter and a member of the Cleveland music scene, I have encountered many wonderful and talented women musicians. Unfortunately, there are still places in the world, where what these women are doing would be illegal, which is terrible. It is simple common sense for women to have equal rights and equal opportunities and it is long past due for that to be reality.

I wanted to take today to give some women I know through playing shows (and some I only know as a fan) a shout out on my website. I truly hope I didn’t leave anyone out. If I did, let me know and I’ll add you!
