Well hey there its been a while! Buckle up: there’s news. The summer brought a lot of (healthy) change and the prospect of a few new exciting projects. News first, life updates last.
News Item #1: About a year ago, after several requests from event planners and booking agents, I hastily formed a little trio for weddings and corporate functions creatively named The Kat Langdon Trio. I’m proud to announce the group now has a better name and branding AND is a real-deal boutique entertainment company.
Introducing: Lady Be Good.
The website is almost complete so expect that in early October! Thank you to 66 works for the branding design and friends and family for their patience and input :)
News Item #2: This summer, after 4+ years of festivals and events, I made the tough decision to leave the Brian Rose Band. Change is scary but I’m excited to move forward in this next chapter of my career. I wish my bandmates the most success and look forward to visiting them next year at the Beaches Jazz Festival!
News Item #3: You may have noticed a new design here on the site! I’m a firm believer that your space needs to match your life, so life changes=new design. With Lady Be Good becoming its own business I’ve decided to let katlangdon.com reflect more of me as an artist. I hope you dig it!
Life Updates I have this theory: when the universe is trying to send you a sign it will first throw a pebble at you. If the pebble doesn’t get your attention, it will throw a rock at you. If the rock doesn’t work, prepare for the boulder. I knew I was ready to make some big moves in my life and the universe was set on confirming it. The pebbles and rocks were all constructive, but the boulder is worth mentioning… Last month I was involved in a highway car accident that left my car with just under $10,000 in damage (the photo is deceiving). Everyone walked away fine. I’m coming to understand that I’m enough. I focus a lot on building my life (financially, emotionally, socially) and you never really have any of that stuff. It’s all temporary.
This is a tough lesson to learn. Understanding the real value of a piece of metal (nothing) helped me better appreciate the great moments I had this summer.
I produced and performed in a sold-out tribute to Beyonce, The Queen Bey (will post real photos and video soon)… I …saw the actual Beyonce in Montreal (yes, where her hair got caught in a fan)… …I travelled a bit…
…and I turned 28 surrounded by my closest friends (minus one in Texas) and boyfriend. Up next: moving, new projects and maybe a show announcement or two! :) xo
