Ginger & Wendy Sing Joey

Hello, Darlink!

Life is so odd, so awesome, so fun, so tough.....It is complex all the time, simple some of the time, juicy at its best and empty only when we let it be. People often share with me their stories and I get to share mine through song. It's that beautiful and mysterious intermingling of our lives that keep us strong, on our toes, learned, and grateful. Thank you for being with me on my musical, public, and personal journey.

One person I greatly admire is my dear friend and musical colleague, Wendy Colonna. She and I have worked a bunch together through the years, traveled together, cried and laughed together.

Here's a downloadable version of Concrete Blonde's "Joey" featuring Wendy Colonna, Ginger Leigh (that's me!), Noelle Hampton and Andre Moran, recorded live at the Bugle Boy! <a href="https://soundcloud.com/gingerleighmusic/joey-live-at-bugleboy" target="_blank">Click here to download it.</a>

Wendy is an incredible person, a unique and stylish vocalist with strong pipes(!), and a stellar songwriter. She works so hard at this! I admire her drive. She is crowd-funding her new CD. I've been privy to some of the tracks, even got to sing on some. Please go pitch in to help her reach her goal! 15 days left and she is at 44%. If she doesn't reach the goal, she gets no funding and we don't get to watch her succeed. That would stink! PLAY A PART in making this record! Here's the link....click here: <a href="http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/wendycolonnasnewalbum" target="_blank">Pitch in and Be a Part of Wendy's Success.</a>

Speaking of CD's, make sure to go grab mine! Amazing is getting great fan reviews! Download at <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/amazing/id620045204" target="_blank">iTunes</a> or visit my website for more options! Have you watched the super cool CD Release party video yet? It's SO GOOD! You'll love it.

And just for the heck of it....about one year ago I created this song and video from scratch. Every single note, beat, visual, editing I did on my own...just being creative. I hope you likey likey!

What do my nephew, my birthday and Formula One™ have in common? Not much! But I thought I'd throw them all together in one message to you, my friend! My Nephew, Colter: https://www.gofundme.com/colterstemcell I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your contributions, no matter how big or small! My brother has the opportunity to help this precious boy with a very successful stem cell treatment. We are asking for your contributions to help them make this happen. We've raised almost $7000! The goal is $22,000, so we are inching there, little by little, by the giving hearts of friends, family, fans and strangers. https://www.gofundme.com/colterstemcell And consider it my birthday present! https://holdmyticket.com/tickets/260044 My actual birthday is November 1st! Yes, my mother went into labor on Halloween and I came out to see my aunts in costume and thought "THIS IS GOING TO BE FUUUUUUUN!" And it is! Life is great, often challenging, but I'm so thankful for all that I have, am and will be. Your support of my career has been a major blessing to me. So thank you! If you are in Austin, we will celebrate on November 4th at the One 2 One Bar at 8pm.1509 S. Lamar 78704 GONNA BE SPECIAL! And in Houston, we will celebrate a bit late: November 11th at Anderson Fair! Also a special treat! Lastly, some of you know that I spend a lot of my year preparing for a huge high end event I produce for the Formula One™ race weekend in Austin!
