After being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease in 2015, I was forced to slow down a bit and get my health back in order. It was becoming very painful to tour. Although it killed me to take time off from everything i had been working so hard for, it paid off in the long run. Shortly after our last tour and some rest, Kevin Lyman offered me another opportunity. To go to L.A and be apart of a singing competition show. This was something I would have NEVER considered in a million years but the name of the game is opportunity and its never a good idea to turn it down. So reluctantly I went. The band was very supportive and knew it would be great exposure for all of us. It was an interesting experience- a TV show that judges you based on your "talent" or how good of a character you can play on TV. Warped Roadies started re-airing as we approached filming and this was a conflict. I've honestly never been so happy to get out of something but I learned a lot and found new inspiration. A big label 360 deal was definitely NOT what i wanted to get myself into. So with that in mind I stayed out in California for a couple of weeks, jammed with some friends and came home with new eyes.
I decided it was time for me to write and release some songs I had been working on that didn’t necessarily fit the mold for Beebs and Her Money Makers. I had a lot of bottled up feelings that needed to come out and I also wanted to expose myself musically as I never have before- WITHOUT A COSTUME! I know! So scary!! But with the love and support from the Money Makers and the expertise of producer Brett Hestla (Dark New Day/ Creed touring bassist) we made it happen! Bunky, Levon and Bruno (of the Money Makers) have all contributed to the album and I feel like it some of the best music I've made so far! I am so excited to share it with all of you!
That being said, this entire album has been self-funded and all videos are being made with help of master videographer- Bobby Marinelli of Marinelli Creative and Domonic Smith of Shoot to Kill Productions. The first song "Ride Around The Sun" off the of the new album has been released. There will be a video for all 7 singles off of the new album set to be released in June 2016. The album is entitled "Eye Shine" and features Ethan Tucker (Silverback Management) as well as B. Lay.
Now is your chance to pre-order the album and also an opportunity to get it digitally before it is released. And other awesomeness! The money will go to finishing the videos and producing new merchandise as well pressing the album and a tour with the new songs. Thank you so much for everyone’s love, encouragement and support. I couldn’t live out my dreams with out it! Much love! Can't wait to show you all of this NEW MUSIC and a different/un-costumed side of myself.
