Newsletter Update – Happy New Year!

Dearest Frequencies, Fans, Family and Friends,

I am writing with warm wishes this holiday season and sending you all much love and light, and positive manifestations for the new year!  This past year, the Frequency has continued to grow and thrive.  It has been an honor to be creating, recording and performing with such amazing musicians and friends, and to be so motivated and inspired by our connections with all of you too! Here’s what we’re tuning into this month:

I. New Release “DNR Demo”
II. Upcoming Shows
III. New Beginnings
IV. Baby Franklin Pictures 🙂
V. Frequency Fun!

I.  Our new release, DNR Demo, is now available for sale direct from the frequency!  Meaning you can come to our online store to purchase it, and we don’t have to pay a retailer fee.  The physical CD is only $5 (plus shipping) and the Download is $3.  If you get the physical copy it comes with the download as well.  We appreciate the love and support and hope that you like the new EP. We can’t wait to share it with you.  Visit our bandcamp page to get your copy.

II.  We’ve got a few upcoming shows to start the new year off!  We’ll be performing in the Session Room at Hopmonk Tavern Novato to perform as the featured act during the open mic night on Wednesday, January  7th.  The open mic starts at 7pm and then we will perform our feature set sometime between 9-10pm.  Up next, we will be at Brixx in Petaluma on Saturday January 17th , and the show starts at 8:30pm.  Both venues offer great food, drink and atmosphere – AND they are both ALL AGES so bring the family 🙂

III.  There are some new beginnings getting dialed in for the frequency as we head on into 2015!  Just this past November we had to say good bye (for now) to our dear friend and guitarist, Richard Christner, as he and his family moved to Fort Collins, Colorado!  It is bittersweet of course, as we will miss him tremendously, but we know it was a healthy move for he and his family, AND Colorado does have much greener pastures these days, wink wink…. 🙂  We’re definitely looking forward to linking up again in the future for some shows out his way when we’re on the road performing.  We are now looking for a new player to join the frequency.  We’re manifesting a new guitar player and/or keys player.  We’d love to find a player who can play both. Please spread the word and send interested frequencies our way 🙂

IV.  Speaking of new beginnings…  Our little baby Elijah-Jade Franklin is just now 4 months old today!  I couldn’t resist (and as promised) here are a few pictures of the little guy. Enjoy 🙂
