Mandy Moore Addicited to Acupuncture
“oh long lost friends! i’ve returned to say hello and wish you a belated happy new year (technically i find it appropriate being that we are still in january).
anyway, i wanted to let the peeps “down under” know that we’re going to be in australia from february 28th- march 11 to open for my friend ben lee and a few dates with kelly clarkson too. i was lucky enough to both sing on ben‘s record (please check out his album “ripe”….it’s really fantastic) and have him out on the road with us late last year, so i’m thrilled to do it all over again. kelly‘s also a sweetheart and obviously a talent, so we’re looking forward those shows as well. also, “wild hope” is being released on february 23rd there…..so check it out, maybe?? :)
it’s been awhile since we’ve visited and i can’t tell you how much i love being there. i guess it’s safe to say that we’re all quite excited to say hello again and introduce this record/new musical direction. hope to see you guys at some of the gigs!!
other than that, there’s not too much to update you on. i’ve found some down time during the writer’s strike to nest a bit. i’ve fallen back in love with being home in LA and have really taken to my daily routine of pilates, acupuncture, driving around town listening to good jams, etc….. :)
i’ve also set up a bit of a music room at home and have been pushing myself to write and learn some piano and guitar (although i am TERRIBLE, i REALLY REALLY want it….grr!!) good stuff is coming though and i CAN’T WAIT to start working on the next record already. i’ll keep you in the loop……..
hope this find everyone well and i’ll be sure to check in again soon.
