Hello My Fine Folk,

As you may know, I recently entered a contest to win a performance spot at the upcoming Minneapolis Lilith Fair. This contest was called the Lilith Local Talent Search and involved fan voting via Ourstage and Facebook.

With your help, I ended up in the #1 spot after the many rounds of fan voting were complete! Unfortunately, I found out yesterday that the Lilith Fair and Ourstage judges chose someone else to perform.

I knew this was a possibility (as it stated in the rules; the #1 winner was not necessarily the winner of the performance spot) but I had sincerely hoped that my music and all of your hard work in getting me to the top would have had more of an impact on the final decision.

Your continued support means everything in the world to me and I can't thank you enough for helping me be a part of this endeavor. Today, I feel a bit disappointed and upset that so many of you spent such time and effort on this but I guess, most important, is that you made me #1 – and you continue to believe in me and my art and push me to continue to follow my dream. The beat goes on, baby and so do I!

Sorry it's been so long since I've written. I've been a busy girl.
Most recently I've been a very proud and humbled girl. This is due to the overwhelming response and support I received from all of you for helping me get to and stay in the number one position in the Lilith Fair Talent Contest.

In the past year I've performed with Michelle Shocked, Tret Fure and opened for Pieta Brown and the Cowboy Junkies. I've got to meet some of my personal favorites like Dougie MacLean and Vance Gilbert and I'm looking forward to working with Dave Wilcox at the Lyons Folks Fest Songschool. And now her I am with the chance to perform at one of the most awesome music festivals in the country and in my hometown, no less - Lilith Fair!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed people - You voted me to number one but they need to make the final call - let's hope the Lilith powers that be agree with all of you.
Thank you again, and again, and again!
