Its been awhile since I've blogged and I forgot to update our tour shenanigans here on the site as we primarily shared everything on FB. I will be sure to post some pics this week. Allen and I had a blast on tour and it went really well. We made some new fans and friends and look forward to another tour next year, probably Utah being one of our destinations. As of now, I am in Europe, I have been on a little solo journey to do some things I have never done and see some things I have never seen. YOLO right? My journey started in NYC, which is my favorite city in the world. As usual, I had a blast there and met some new people and heard some great Jazz. My next stop was London. It is a great city, I hung out in SOHO and saw Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, disappointed I didn't make Abbey Road, but I did get to do a tour of Shakespeare's Globe and hang out on the South Bank. Next was the island of Crete in Greece, the cause of all this wanderlust. A former student of mine, and someone I call friend as well, invited me to come to her wedding there. I couldn't say no to the opportunity and decided to make this my epic first overseas journey. Being that Crete was so close to Italy, I thought "why not?". I have always wanted to go to Italy and figured Rome would be a great starter city. I absolutely adored Crete and Rome. I love the people, the languages and the architecture. I had a cute cat who liked to keep me company at my hotel in Italy, he was adorable! I got up early this morning and headed to Termini Station to take a train to the airport to get to my final destination before returning home, which is Paris. I am currently in an internet cafe in Pisa with many hours to kill before my plane leaves, so I figured I would get caught up on some things.
So, a few things happening:
My new record COURTNEY CHAMBERS LIVE is available now! It will be available in the online store soon, but in the meantime, just message me to purchase a copy. It will be available on itunes, amazon and CDbaby.com as well.
