Last Night @ Gardenia

I got to Keri Kelsey’s open mic at The Gardenia late and was called up to the mic right after Karen HernandezDori AmarillioMichael Saucier did such a kick-ass, jazz instrumental session, that I didn’t want to get off my bar stool, personally, thinking that the evening could have ended perfectly right then.

However, I did get up…

On that bar stool I had a few ideas of what song I’d sing, but changed my mind on the fly on my walk over to the piano with my iPad, quickly searching for and selecting another song, only to change it once again after I put my electronic tablet down in front of Mike Farrell who was back at the piano. He is one of Hollywood’s go-to pianists for many of the singing or music-based TV shows…and has played with/for many well-known bands and singers.

Although I really didn’t want to get up, once the music started and I started singing, it truly felt awesome, at the very least it was a selfish joy to sing with such talented, world-class musicians playing behind me.

HOW DO I GET A SIGNED COPY of Weakday Drifter?

For those with US addresses, for a limited time I will be offering signed copies, sent directly by my office, for $18.00 (you will be invoiced by paypal).

  1. Contact me directly, through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Email.
  2. You will be invoiced through PayPal.
  3. Once we recieve your payment of $18.00.
  4. We will send a signed copy of Weakday Drifter & Other Writings via Media Mail, by the USPS. You will likely recieve a tracking number.
  5. For the first several books ordered, I will include one of my very first, acting postcards, from the 90s. (One from the original printing! Also from the 90s! Very limited amount available.) Photo on 10-29-17 at 8.49 AM.jpg
  6. Will include a Kindle file, which will be Emailed to the address you get invoiced through. (Kindle file is for you to take with you on your phone or tablet, and so you can leave a verified Amazon review.)

NOTE: For those outside the US, available signed books will only be on a person to person basis. Rates would undoubtedly change dramatically, paperwork may be involved on our end, and I’m unsure about my abiltity to order Kindle files from the US Amazon, and send to other countries.

The 24th review of Park Ranger Park is posted on Amazon. Awesome to have the guy who created Game of Thrones, George RR Martin and Janet Evanovich mentioned.

 Thank you all for purchasing, perusing, and for helping me with PR. Hoping for the 25th review soon, and then onward toward 25,000 and beyond.
Monday a publicity team climbs aboard, as I need professional support to help me move closer to that second mark. 

Make dreams happen.

Being Lint Brushed

Was just alerted of a little press about the movie that just wrapped, if you’re interested in reading it, link is below. We shot in both Los Angeles and Eastern Washington State.  It was good to work, to meet new people (fun and talented), and see yet another part of America. I’ll let you know more about when and where you can see it, when I know more. Not sure why they chose a shot where I’m in the photo, being lint brushed, but…

Maybe lint brushing is my thing now… anyone remember the little lint brush scene from Romantically Speaking?

For more photos and videos from the shoot, you can always check out my Instagram. @TomKiesche
