Last night, I faced my anxious fears and did an interview with "Bob" on Queer Sounds! The wonderful Queer Sounds hosts have been super-supportive of me and my music over the years. They have regularly played Team Smile and Nod. And they even play the theme song Rich and I made them each and every week! When they offered an interview to support my album release yesterday (Love Songs for Everyone but Especially Uke), I summoned all my courage and went for it! (Not without loads of nervous giggling and inaudible pacing.)
Queer Sounds is a glorious show out of Spokane, WA that features music by LGBTQQIA musicians and airs every Thursday at 6PM PST on KYRS. Everyone can stream it live on KYRS' website. "Bob," the excellent host who interviewed me, was going solo last night. Her co-host, Cat, is also fantastically supportive! Guess what? I recorded it! You can stream the interview below!

Last Sunday, Tim from The Tim Corrimal Show kindly featured "Heart Stopping Lies"! The Tim Corrimal Show is a progressive liberal political talk show with a round table type format. It's great! Tim invites his friends to discuss current politics.
On Episode 246, Tim was joined by Joe (@marnus3 on Twitter), Francy (@Francy57 on Twitter) and Paddy (@PaddyK on Twitter) from “The Political Carnival” Blog. He has a weekly segment called "All A Tweetie" where each guest features an interesting Twitter-er. Tim mentioned me @TeamSmileandNod and said a bunch of really nice things about my tunes. At the end of the show, he played "Heart Stopping Lies."
And soooo... I highly recommend The Tim Corrimal Show. It is airs each Sunday night- so it's a great recap of a week's worth of politics. Tim and his guests are good-natured and super-smart with opinions that I can get behind. I'll be checking in regularly to keep up on politics better! Please check it out and follow Tim on Twitter-->

Love Songs for Everyone but Especially Uke is now available on TuneTrack! You've got to check out the album on TuneTrack... it's the prettiest interactive listening experience you'll get anywhere on the web. Seriously. Give it a whirl. And join my Green Room to support me!
Check out these extremely kind words that the CEO of ArtisTech Media shared on the official press release:
“Kara is definitely ‘doing something right’ with Love Songs for Everyone,” remarked Emily Richards, CEO of ArtisTech Media. “Kara’s voice is rich with emotion. Her songs speak straight to the heart. And her ukulele takes many styles and tones and has certainly expanded my adoration of the instrument. This album would be perfectly sandwiched between Dar Williams and k.d. lang.”
