Hello! Its a shame that time escapes me in my busy days...as has been quite a wee bit of time since I've been able to sit down blog and share my stories. But alas, exciting things are happening and I intend to keep you abreast of this exciting time as I navigate my winding way through the start of my career and the onset of an exciting musical journey with my band...as well as any other activities and adventures that arise. Most recently, was our show last night at the Plough & Stars. Felt great to perform back at our home base...where we first began performing about a year ago. And last night was our first Saturday show! Great turnout and the set went super! Our friends, JJ and Kevin from Bangarang Productions in Newton, filmed the show and I hope to get something online soon. Billy Dodge opened for us and I was able to accompany him on some of his songs as well. Tomorrow night we will play at Charlie's Kitchen, a brand new venue for us. Pictures and posts to come!

Last weekend my friend Billy Dodge and I traveled to Westport, MA to film a music video for his song Illusory-under the direction of Kevin and JJ at Bangarang Productions. It could not have been a more perfect and crisp October day. We got to spend some time filming on the beach as well as on Billy's porch, which looked right over the water. Filming was a lot of fun.It was awesome to share creative visions about the song and to capture the song's narrative on film. While on the beach, a black lab ran up to us from out of no where...no owner to be seen. The dog stayed with us throughout our filming and we were able to capture some great scenes with him. I thought this was particularly special, as one of the lyrics in Illusory talks about Belle, Billy's black lab. You can check out the song here: http://soundcloud.com/billy-dodge/illusory and when the video is done, I will be sure to post about it! In the meantime, here are some photos

Last night Andrew, Bryan and I finished up our recordings! Yay! Many long hours went into these and I want to thank Andrew Will for being the hands and the brains behind making these sound great. Enjoy! And keep your eyes and bananas peeled for more music! www.reverbnation.com/eleanorandthetasties.com

After the piano concert, we made our way to Martunis, a piano bar and Hannah's favorite bar in the city. The scene was something out of a 1930's movie: we made our way to the back of the bar and slid behind a thick curtain into a room filled with people sipping on martinis and swaying their bodies to the sound of old jazz piano standards. Three times I joined the piano man and sang some tunes. It was a lively, music-loving crowd- definitely a recommended spot to hit on a Friday or Saturday night.
