July News
I am in the final weeks of my annual summer sabbatical, which I spend on the shores of lake Michigan with my family.  My wife Liz directs a camp here, and the kids and I get to enjoy the gorgeous surroundings and fun people at Camp Miniwanca. Michigan's west coast is a hidden gem known for stunning sunsets, fresh cherries and blueberries, sand dunes, and a nice slow pace of life.   Reminds me somewhat of my home state of Maine.  However, I think I've finally stopped expecting Lake Michigan to be salty.  

Kristen Hall (songwriter & producer) and I will pick back up where we left off with the recording when I return to work in August.  We've tracked 9 tunes so far (penned by Kristen and me) for "The Flying Dream" and we are planning to record a Burt Bacharach tune to round things out.  Then she and I plan to lay down the killingest harmonies all over the thing.  I want to thank Jen Walker who just made a donation to the project that will help me finish the tracking!  

From August 20-25 I'll be hosting my "Catie at the Cove" songwriter's retreat up on Georgetown Island in Maine.  I am so excited to bring together a group of talented and inspired folks and watch what happens when you make time and space for creativity!  Jenna Lindbo and Scott Stoll will be hosting with me.  

I hope you all are having a lovely summer!

Cheers,
Catie
