MARK WEBSTER ONGOING FUNDRAISER:

If ever there was a time I wish I was rich, it is now.

Our dear friend Mark Webster is ill with a rare form of cancer called pseudomyxoma peritonei and we are unsure what kind of time he has left.
He was diagnosed in 2007 and has had multiple surgeries since yet the cancer cells keep growing.
Mark's hopes are to see as much of the world as possible while he can. As well, the costs of day to day living don't go away and when you can't work, money becomes an issue.
I am not asking for donations for anything at all to do with my career, but solely trying to help a dear friend's cause.
I’ve never been more passionate about raising money for a cause in my life.

Don't feel obligated if you can't. Those who don't have much aren't who I'm asking. Every bit helps. Whether it’s $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 or more.
I always said I had the greatest friends and fans that anyone could ask for.
This would be a great time to shine through.
Romi Mayes

For those that can and do, I thank you deeply and also whole heartedly on behalf of Mark, Romi Mayes

OTHER NEWS:

--"AFTER THE SHOW" is completed! Filmmaker Steven K Johnson spent almost two years completing the full length documentary on Romi Mayes and Jay Nowicki, following their careers with a focus on the making of their 2011 album 'Lucky Tonight'. "Making a legitimate living as an artist has rarely been easy. In late 2010, Romi Mayes- a single mother of one and touring musician- teamed up with life-long friend Jay Nowicki to write and perform a live, original electric-duo album. "After the Show" is a tribute to all independent musicians, chronicling the utter commitment to an art form where success is measured by creative persistence instead of widespread financial fame."

SEPTEMBER 2013:
Well it's been a really relaxing year so far. Taking time off the road has been extremely revitalizing. Lots of time with family, local gigs, fishing, camping, laying low and loving it. It seems like I had almost forgot how to live a normal life with no rushing between tours and schedules. I suggest breaks like these to every touring musician. It may be possible that I take quite a bit more time off the road yet, but I'll be back out there at some point... so stay tuned for sure.

A wonderful fortune of a Canada Council songwriting grant came in March this year and that was so helpful in toting us along while I tried to do some relaxing and some writing toward the next album, hopefully to be recorded by the end of 2014. Not to give too much away, but let's just say I am feeling an acoustic based ballad album coming on.

A big bit of news is that I started a booking agency earlier this year called SURE SHOT BOOKINGS. I am really proud of the work I have been doing for the super talented artists on my roster. Please go to the SURE SHOT FACEBOOK PAGE for more information on that. It's been a challenging and fulfilling endeavour and I hope to continue booking great bands across Canada for some time to come. This year I have been booking tours for Matt Masters, David Essig, Chris Carmichael, Bonnie Whitmore, Jack Marks, Paul Reddick, Sol James, Carolyn Mark, Brock Zeman, Jerry Leger, Sean Burns, Smoky Tiger, The Bros. Landreth, and others to come on the horizon like Brandy Zdan, The Uncas, Kevin Roy, Scotty Hills, and more.

I am still fundraising for Mark Webster. Please check this link for more info on a dear friend with terminal cancer who hopes to be able to see some of the world and enjoy his life in the limited time he has left. Everything helps so please consider even a humble contribution. Click this link for more info and an opportunity to donate to a worthy cause.

Other than that, you can keep up with me on Facebook or Twitter. I sure appreciate all of you caring and staying with me on this roller coaster ride of life. Thanks so very much,

Romi
