A note from Rach’s father this morning…
“Rachel won the CHUM Emerging Artist of the Month. Her new song “Stronger Than You Think I Am” is getting national radio play over the CHUM network. Other stations are beginning to add it. KISS FM Ottawa. Tonight “Stronger Than You Think I Am” is challenging “Disturbia” by Rihanna. That’s on Hot 89.9 at 9:00 our time. Listen Live at: www.hot899.com“
WAY TO GO RACH! I’m so proud of you.
So, if you’ve been reading my blog at all, you know a little bit about Rachel Ferguson. She is a 18-year-old singer songwriter from Alymer, Quebec (the greater Ottawa-Gatineau region). And, she’s kicking ass! I love it.
Visit her myspace page (myspace.com/rachelfergusonmusic). Become part of her community. Leave a comment. OR Better yet, call your local radio station and request her.
I was walking though the Healdsburg town square today. I have been sick and I haven’t been out of my house for a bit and I decided to walk downtown to get my groceries. Anyway, I was walking through the plaza and I saw a guy wearing a Bedouin Soundclash t-shirt. I looked directly at him and just asked: Hey–Are you Canadian?
He looked a bit confused but soon realized that his shirt might indicate that he was. But–he wasn’t. He’d just been to a concert in San Francisco on Feb 19th. He was excited that somebody in Healdsburg knew who they were. We talked for about five minutes and he gave them a great review so now I’m going to look up their next concert and see if I can go.
I walked the rest of the way home and couldn’t wait to get back to my computer. I’d discovered Bedouin Soundclash last September. I usually stream them from their myspace, but today–today I’m just going to buy them. And play them on my new iPOD soundsystem.
Happy Birthday to me.
