the last 6 months in bullet points… and yes blondes definitely have more FUN.

 
so.  I really dropped the ball on this blog.  Which makes me feel pretty crap.  And in order to feel better about myself, I’m going to do something I should’ve done months ago.  Yep – I’m reinstating Daley Downtown.  I know you all were on the edge of your seat awaiting for this post.  Le sigh.  In all honesty I’m excited about blogging again.  I even updated my ‘theme’ and header (long over due).  In any case as much as I’d love to get you up to speed on my life in detail, I’m just going to give you a few highlights and you can fill in the rest with your overactive imaginations – you know who you are.  :\

Since my last post in December 2011 I…

  • became a blonde which automatically makes me more fun.
  • fell in and out of “Love / Like” several times.  story of my life.
  • attended WMC 2012 in Miami met a ton of amazing people including Dev, Rita Ora, Datsik and various other major players in the Industry.
  • got kissed on the cheek by Mickey Avalon (still not sure how I feel about it)
  • opened for YACT at Plaza Live, and got walked in on while putting on nylons backstage, by a member of Onuinu (who will remain unidentified, but there are only 2 of them so you have 50% chance of guessing right)  (nuff said).
  • collaborated with several EDM producers as a Featured Artist on a couple of tracks
    that were released in JUNE on Beatport and SoundCloud

  • wrote several songs that are still in the works and have yet to be released.
  • wrote a song titled, “Hi (A Song For You)”  a couple days ago… you can watch my live home recording on youtube.
  • overhauled my website:  http://brittdaley.com
  • and started moonlighting SOLO as a DJ combining LIVE Vocals with DJ set – Playing my first official set at Ignition at Firestone Live 6/28/12 (Mainstage Baby)

bing. bam. boom.  I’m done – no wait I’m not done yet….  wha ha ha. 😉

Lot’s of things in the works, up in the air…

just a quickie…. the spring/summer recap.

Schools out – and as for me… I’ve been on summer vacation (from blogging) since May.  No, I haven’t disappeared, gone into protective custody, solitary confinement,  or joined a convent.   My excuse? I’ve been BUSY, and despite all the crazy changes taking place in my life – I haven’t been inspired to Blog.  So for now we’ll leave it at that.   I’ve simply been filling my time… and let’s face it, it’s a difficult and occasionally daunting task to recount 3 months worth of activities.

This is one of those occasions… but because I suffer from severe Catholic Guilt Syndrome (CGS), to the point of feeling guilty about not keeping this thing up-to-date, I have decided to bullet point my highlights since May.

MAY at a glance…

  • May 7: My Cousin’s Weekend Wedding in VEGAS-  It was my first time there, and I liked it even though I went through nearly an entire tube of chap-stick.  It was also a success considering I made it back with my money, dignity, and NO vague memories of getting hitched by a man in an Elvis suit…
  • May 21: I played a killer show at The Social with Andy Matchett and the Minks, Circus, and Soulbirds.
  • Tracked the beginning of my new EP set to drop by the end of this summer.

JUNE- Springing into Summer…
  • Played shows at Firestone Lot, Backbooth, and The Social all within a week of each other – it was insane but quite a rush.
  • June 4: MATT & KIM show @ Firestone Live!!!
  • June 17: Partied (a little too hard) at my little brother’s bar-mitzvah – but had a blast – and I’m so proud of him.
  • June 30: Caught Florence And The Machine at Hard Rock Live – FREAKING AMAZING!
JULY…. so far.
  • 4th of July @ Clearwater Beach with the Family
  • July 7: Attended Animal Collective (very trippy indeed) at The Beacham (My new Favorite Venue)
  • And I am currently in the middle of renovating and decorating my new studio.  – my own little music space…. I’m so happy.  🙂
  • I am also working on new material and re-writes for my EP. Woo hoo!  
Things are certainly taking shape – and I will be adding more show dates to my calendar soon…. This fall is going to be incredible – I can FEEL it.
PS:  shout out to all my DPR friends!  DOG POWERED ROBOT was picked Best Fringe Show – in the Orlando Weekly’s 2011 “Best of” – well deserved guys!
Now back to summer vacay.

april in all its glory; 2 MUCH 2 TYPE

Well I don’t think I’ve ever been this late on getting in my bi-weekly, tri-weekly, quarterly blogity blog post, but better late than never…. I guess.  And Holy WOW – it’s been over a year since I started this thing…. jeez.  There is so much going on right now… where do I start?  Some very exciting changes are taking place – but I refuse to jinx anything so I won’t get too specific.  I will tell you that I am working vigorously on my new material (literally in the studio working on “One And Only” right now) hopefully to release sometime this summer or late spring  – and it’s going to be 100x better than the previous release.  I have a show in May at The Social – pretty stoked about that, and it’s with Andy Matchett and The Minks, Circus, and Soulbirds.  The FRINGE Festival will also be coming up at the end of May and then I will slide into the summer.

To recap (briefly because I think I might go insane if I try to recount everything):

I played two shows at Florida Music Fest, my showcase on Thursday, April 7th at 57 West and an acoustic set that Friday night at Cafe Annies as part of the Indie Film Jam.  Both shows went great and even better was the opportunity to chum it up with other musicians and industry cats.  My cousin Jeremy was in attendance at FMF, with the band he manages, Chelsea Automatic.  I had a blast hanging out with those guys fo sho!  And their showcase at the BackBooth FedeX stage was killer.  I danced my ass off.

On the 16th I attended The WPRK 91.5 Comes Alive at the House of Blues and once again I was blown away by Andy Matchett And The Minks’  incredible performance.  Those guys are hands down my favorite local band.  I grin ear to ear every time I see them.  What was even better about this performance was a surprise cameo by Dog Powered Robot and newly added Lollibot.  The guy standing next to me gave me a strange look when I began singing along to the DPR theme tune… I can imagine it was somewhat “in stereo” sounding to him.  womp womp… In any case it was brilliant and the crowd loved it.

Speaking of the big blue robot… we had our Fringe Preview on Monday, April 18 and the crowd went wild.  It always seems to be a WTF?!?! moment when Dog Powered Robot makes an appearance, but this time for sure they weren’t expecting our team because the Fringe producers told them we wouldn’t be able to make it.  Ha ha – we sure fooled them.

The days and weeks as usual, are seemingly running together and it seems like there is more to cover than I feel like typing, sooooo… Just as my mom texted me a few days ago regarding family dinner plans, “2 MUCH 2 TEXT”  I will simply leave you with this:

2 Much 2 TYPE.

Peace.
