    It is a lovely September day here in Nashville! I have to admit, I am very ready for fall (my favorite season). It has been a hot, hot summer down South... and I'm ready for the fall colors, weather, and crunchy leaves beneath my feet! So, back in late July through the start of August (2016) - I experienced my first-ever house concert tour. This was a huge deal for me because I have never...

    Greetings from Oettingen in Bayern! What an amazing little town. I wouldn't mind living here someday!  I haven't been able to keep a consistent blog while touring with Pavlov's Dog - due to being so busy, and not having a connection on a regular basis (which is actually pretty awesome, I must say). Today we are headlining the Wudzdog Festival in Germany! Very exciting. I'm...

    Greetings from beautiful Nashville, TN! This New Year has already brought new sessions, shows, music, and opportunities! I have entered 2016 with a new mindset. Complete artistic freedom - both musically and visually. All creative works must come to light! In order to do this, I needed to give myself even more focused creative time. Time to breath, reflect, plan, and conquer. I always set aside...

    Wow, it's December! How the hell did that happen so fast? Time is flying right on by. I guess the old saying is true! It has almost been a month since my last blog post. So, I better catch you guys back up! This particular Pavlov's Blog will be my final blog of this series. In this blog, I'll focus on my absolute favorite show of the tour (Het Depot in Leuven, Belgium) and our last...

    This blog is completely dedicated to one of my favorite memories on this tour... our adventure in Liége. Honestly, the tour was so great that it's really hard to pinpoint a favorite time or memory. Our time in this beautiful city was so amazing because we had the entire day off to explore and enjoy... those of you who are touring musicians will get it. A day off is precious, and we took full...

    Wow, I've finally settled back into my lovely Nashville home - and I'm ready to tell you about the end of our amazing 2015 European tour. I have to be honest when I say transitioning back into normal life has been very difficult. This tour was really special, and I wasn't ready for it to end! The amount of musicianship, energy, and respect displayed on-stage every night was just...

    I am currently sitting in a beautiful hotel room in Verviers, Belgium. This morning we enjoyed a lovely breakfast - complete with pancakes and champagne! Beautiful. Photo credit: Rick Steiling  I haven't had a chance to blog over the past couple of days - so, today I am going to catch up! We left off right before the Munich show, so let's start there.  DAY 3  This morning...

    DAY 2  Ladies and gentlemen, the sitar pedal works. Thank you Electro Harmonix for building a pedal that can have its damn control knob broken off - and still work! So thankful.  Yesterday was a beautiful fall day! The leaves look great - bright colors, accompanied with a chill in the air. Perfect. One of my favorite parts of the day was walking to the grocery store to pick up some...

    Greetings from Munich! We made it!  So, while we were at dinner tonight - Nathan (our amazing new keyboard player) gave me this wonderful idea... Pavlov's Blog! Ha! Genius. I'm going to do my best to do a daily tour blog about our shows, rehearsals, and journey! Be prepared - some parts will be hilarious. Abbie brought some card games (like Spot It, and Exploding Kittens)... things...

    Please allow me to introduce myself.  Photo by Megan McCoy In March, I was honored to help Bill Crook (Crook Custom Guitars) at the Nashville vintage guitar show! This was a great opportunity to hang out with my favorite guitar/bass builder - and soak up some of his knowledge (or try to anyway). I was fortunate to meet a lot of wonderful people that day... and I came home with a beautiful...
