Growing Old With You + Tour Updates!

There’s so many things that I want to tell you about the tour. Sooo many things, but so little time! ????

Let’s pretend time doesn’t matter then, shall we?


Grab a tea, let’s get to it!


I have just finished my 4 month tour, and here is the verdict:
The road has taken care of me in ways that I could have never ever imagined…


With meeting nearly 30 house concert hosts – some with whom I’ve been communicating with back and fourth for almost a year now, it’s all been surreal… Not only meeting my hosts, but getting to meet and perform for THEIR guests and closest pals, I have been feeling loved beyond belief. Words can’t really describe the non-stop awe-struck state that I’ve been in the last few months. It’s a dream – a golden dream… Something I never knew that I would be feeling-living-breathing & doing every single day.

I am blessed.

I wish I could share with you ALL the photos and ALL the videos and ALL the shows and ALL THE WONDERFUL MAGICAL EXPERIENCES I’ve had!!! But…. I just can’t. There is so much material… All of which will be edited into one beautifully compact & fun hour-long documentary that I will be busy editing as soooooon as I am back from tour.

But for now — since that documentary is still months away, I will share with you a video from the road! A music video of my song Growing Old With You, and my SECOND song that Sirius XM Coffeehouse radio picked up and is playing on regular rotation. I was elated at this news. I have not one, but TWO songs now on the radio. This makes me feel like a real star now! ????



Every day, it’s my hand that you take
In the morning as we wake
And all the love that we create

Every day, it’s just you and me
In our bed under the trees
Dreaming of all the things to be

It’s you I adore
The world is so much more
When my hand is in yours

I wanna grow old with youuuuu
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna grow old with youuuuu
I wanna grow old with you

Every night, I look up at the sky
It’s a starlight paradise
When you’re by my side

Every night, you make me feel alive
Under the trees you hold me tight
So much light in your eyes

(( Chorus ))

I love growing old with youuuuu
I love growing old with you
I love growing old with youuuuu
I love growing old with you


I wrote this custom song through the Gift-of-Song offering on the blog. Basically, anybody can come to me at any time and say “Hey Jess, I would like to pay you to write a song for ______ about ______ .” And then we will chat and laugh and figure out what the song is about, and then I will write it!!

Well, Growing Old With You was one of these beautiful custom songs.

It was commissioned by a woman who was celebrating her marriage with her husband of 36 years. What rang in my heart the most when she wrote about him was the fact that they are best friends, and their friendship is continually growing, as they grow old together. After exchanging a few brief emails, I went to work writing, and this song was born.

(BTW: Wanna learn to play this on guitar? Find TABS for this song on my FREE DOWNLOADS page and play along with me!!)

Since I started getting a lot of traction with the new song, I thought it would only be appropriate to pump out a fun music video! My amazing friend & videographer Josh Williams and I spent a few hours in the Californian desert called ‘Joshua Tree’, filming several videos that I will be using for my documentary later in 2018. I will always remember this day, because I took a screenshot of the weather and it was 112 degrees in the desert centre where we were filming. Although I somehow made it seem like it was a beautiful summery day in the video and not a drop of sweat can be seen, I melted for days after filming this video. I think it’s TOTALLY worth it though!


If you can’t tell, I had fun all around. Writing… Filming… Editing.


Despite the heat, filming in a desert can be totally epic-cool. We tried making use of that desert as much as we could by including Pearl and filming another music video too (*hint that video is on it’s way!). Getting back to the future documentary now: I hope it will come out in 2018. My goal is to get in onto Netflix. Ya heard me.  People always say whenever you have a goal, the first thing to do is to start saying it out loud! Start living and breathing it, and proclaiming it to the universe and the angels and the God’s and the whatever-else’s out there listening. So I said it. This is my official declaration that I am going to get my full length documentary about my 2017 House Concert Tour on Netflix in 2018.  it is written. ????

Annnnnd about the rest of the tour…. I will be posting more photos & favourite stories from the road shortly. There is really only so much one gal can do! Thank you for your patience. It means the world to me. Also, I’m sorry I’ve been all over the place in this post. There are LOTS of things buzzing around in my head, and soon enough it will all be comfortably written here on the blog, one post at a time.

PS. Love my newest video? You can help by supporting me on Paypal or Patreon to continue producing month-to-month content with $1 a month or $12 a year!!! My goal is to eventually hit the 2000 supporters mark, people from all over the world, who are graciously donating $1 every month so I can keep writing music, sharing stories and inspiring the world one post at a time. Being an independent artist is rewarding, but it is FAR from easy. Financials are probably the hardest part as a musician, because I never know what one month will bring (or what one month will NOT bring.) Any little bit you can donate will help tremendously, and will go towards things like groceries, gas to pull Pearl around, and peachie (my doggie)’s college fund. ???? ????????❤️ Thank you for your support!!!
