NEWS FROM SEVERIN:
August 12, 2012
Much has been happening in my world – new music, plans for new gigs and new CDs, animals (dogs and cats, mostly), and of course, heat!!! I hope you’re surviving it well. I was going to send this notice out a couple days ago but we’ve had a few big power outages. We all want our A/C!!!
I have two gigs coming up in the next couple weeks that are in two very different parts of the Los Angeles area: The Joint in West L.A. and Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena. I hope you’ll read on for more info on the one that is closest to you and join me and my friends.

Happy Fourth of July! It's been a while since I sent one of these newsletters, so I'd like to update you on what is happening in my musical world. The most important thing for me is that I am writing again after taking some time off from the process. I am part of a songwriting group that has inspired me to get off my butt and write a song every month from some pretty wild assignments.
And last month's SummerSongs West songwriting camp in Cambria was a great success. We have classes and workshops on many of the creative aspects of songwriting and performing led by singer-songwriters who are all making a difference in their careers and lives. The next camp here in California will be WinterSongs West in January, but the SummerSongs East camp will be held in Upstate New York in August. You can find out about all these camps at www.summersongs.com.
My new CD has made some waves on a couple of the industry charts, getting up to #17 on the Roots Music Report for the week ending June 29. (It's funny that back in 1974 I had a song reach #17 on a different chart...) If you would like to hear the new CD and maybe buy a song or two, go to www.cdbaby.com/cd/severinbrowne and have some fun!

The new website is up and running! I figured that with the new CD on the way, the ten-year-old website was way past time for an update. So I hope you like the new site.
The new CD has just gotten back from the manufacturer. The title is Lucky Man - A Songwriter's Notebook and it contains 13 new songs. I'm very happy with the results. It's hard to believe that it's been more than 10 years since the last CD. You can order it from the "Music" page of the website.
I'd like to thank everyone for their support over the years and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
