Er, rock on?!

There is a woman I go to church with who is aspiring to become a famous country singer. She has asked me to accompany her live on the violin a few times, which has been really fun. Now she and her manager are promoting her son's rock/alternative band and have asked me to lay down a few tracks with them next month! I don't know what will come of it... their sound is one in a million... but they are talented. And they write all their own music and lyrics. Good music and lyrics. I haven't been part of a musical project in about 2 months. So I am pretty excited, if anything for the opportunity to perform and to exercise my musicality. Oh, and to be back in a recording studio! I mean wow, it's certainly not the Disney soundtrack or Three Tenors' album I once got paid $50/hr. for. In fact it's FAR from it! But I have worked with musical genres besides classical before, like folk and jazz, and I look forward to this new challenge to put on the leather pants of a rockstar and shed the less wild image of a preggo mom of 3. Even it's only for a day...
