Summer in SE Asia

I am back from touring for 2 weeks, vacationing for 1... and I'm finally starting to feel back to my normal self.  I had such a BLAST in Japan, S. Korea, and Taiwan.... I wanted to share a few photos with you:



My first week in Japan was filled with promo.  Here I am in Tower Records Shibuya, standing next to an old friend.  I try to come here every time I'm in Tokyo.


Thank you always for the support!!!


The other place I always try to stop if I have time:  
I come here for all my stationary, washi tape, and special handcrafted zakka needs!
This is me with Hiki, the owner.  She is one of my favorite blogger/photographer/graphic designers!
(She also has an online shop that ships internationally)

On to Fuji Rock...

Me on stage.
This show was so much fun, thanks to the awesome crowd who came out at 11:30am!  It truly was unforgettable.


Me with my Acoustic Guitar Magazine interviewer/writer.  I think I'm talking about how much I love Fuji Rock here.  ^^
Afterwards there was a signing session.  Thanks to everyone who bought CD's and came out to support!!!


Hall of Dressing Rooms

On to Ansan Valley Rock Festival...


This is right before set up time...


No photos of me on stage :( ... but here is the line for the Autograph Session.  
Thanks to everyone who stopped by!  It was so great to meet you all!!  I'm sorry our time was so short!
Also, I saw so many big mosquito bites!!!  I hope you're all recovering.  ;)

The Band:  (from left to right)
Keefus Ciancia [keys], Aaron Redfield [drums, percussion], Rob Markus [my amazing Agent!!], moi, Gabe Noel [bass, keyboards], Nathan Hazard [Tour Manager Extraordinaire!]
I love these guys...


After the festival, we partied hard in Hongdae.
And by "party hard", I mean we ATE A LOT!!!  3 restaurants in one night!
Woo hoo!!!

On to Taipei...



I landed, did 1 interview, and immediately ran across the street for some delicious mochi!!!


After a day of shopping and practicing for my acoustic show at Neo Studio, it was time to set up!


The beautiful Olivia Ong sent this stunning bouquet to me for my show!  She is even sweeter than these delicious cherries!

Thank you to everyone who came to the show and stayed for the signing after!  It was such a treat to meet you all!  You're all so sweet -- I can't wait to come back!!


After the show... this happened. 
Stay tuned for my post ALL about the food.  It deserves its own post for sure!


And then there was.... Kaua'i.

I hope you're all having a lovely August so far!  Thank you again to everyone who came out to the shows.  I'll never forget this adventure!  xo
