ever there was a time I wish I was rich, it is now.
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
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.
Ive never been more passionate about raising money for a cause
in my life.
feel obligated if you can't. Those who don't have much aren't who
I'm asking. Every bit helps. Whether its $5, $10, $20, $50
or $100 or more.
I always said I had the greatest friends and fans that anyone could
This would be a great time to shine through.Romi Mayes
THE SHOW" is completed!
Filmmaker Steven K Johnson spent well over the last year completing
the full length documentary on Romi
Mayes and Jay Nowicki, following their careers with a focus on the
making of their latest 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."Check out the Facebook page for more information:
Well winter is almost over... (wishful thinking) and I am still hoping
to do some hard core laying low and do some more writing for a new album. Would
be extremely advantageous to get the Canada
Council songwriting grant I have applied for, but I won't know until March, or so. Here's hopin!
major tour we have after a couple more months of Manitoba shows is in May
when we go over the pond to Italy
and the UK. Some tour dates are posted on the tour page and some are still coming in.
most relevant news bit these days on my mind is the constant fundraising
I'm doing for Mark Webster.
