It’s been over two years since an update and I bet you’re wondering what on earth happened?! I am thankful to have had people asking what has been going on, wondering where the new music is… So! Today is the day I will catch you up!
It’s September 1, a beautiful day in Grandview – the sun is shining, the wind is warm and I am writing this from the comfort of my backyard. It’s basically a disaster back here, but we’ve just been too busy having fun this summer to wrap up all our projects!
My backyard – Yes, I have been a homeowner since 2009 – something I recall getting many apprehensive looks about when I signed the papers to buy at age 20 – Thankfully this has proven to be a good decision. I am so happy to have a home base in the Parkland.
With home-owning comes some grown-up stuff – SO one of the reasons why there hasn’t been new music is because last summer I needed my sheckles to do a few things at home – such as, replace the 1913 original doors and windows on the main floor, paint the exterior… I’m sure you can imagine I would have loved to have spent my hard-earned coin in more fun areas, but that’s the sacrifice I made!
We’ve – Yes there is a we, other than me and Stevie (my cat). Not only did we get some new windows and a fresh coat of paint last summer, but we also got a MAN – Ian! Sorry Montreal, but Grandview snatched him from you! Moving from a booming metropolis to a town of 800 people would be an interesting transition, but our love for music, outdoors, community, travel, food, drink and fun has made our time together a total blast.
Sheckles – Since my last update, I have been working. And working! And working. (So it seemed sometimes.) After forking out the funds for the house, upgrades I started saving again, and after having a good 8 month period where I worked 80 hours every week (on top of working before and after that time period), I’m almost ready to provide some new music!
And how time has flown! The past couple years I’ve been up to everything, and nothing. Of course I could get into more detail, but there you have the short version. I’ve had growing pains as any other 20-something would experience – trying to find my way, believing my worth and not allowing others to negatively influence both of those things. There have been serious times and adventurous times, with new friends, old friends and through all those times a whole lot of loving, understanding, forgiving and letting go.
Which leads me to today! I am so excited to tell you I AM MAKING A NEW ALBUM. And you know what? WE ARE STARTING NEXT WEEK!! I will be releasing more news and information as the weeks progress. All I will tell you right now is that it will be worth the wait. The Time It Takes, you know? 😉
If you’re wondering what you could do to help… have I got the job for you! What I need is support – and not in the monetary sense (just yet.) Please share this post, this website, the Kayla Luky Facebook or Instagram or Twitter or however you like to get your social media on! Sign up for the newsletter in the left hand column of this page. Request ‘The Time It Takes” on your local or campus radio (and if they don’t have it, give them yours and I’ll mail you a new one!) Or send me a letter (Box 265, Grandview MB R0L 0Y0!) Or even good vibes will do. And I’ll send either of those things back to you! Book me in to play at your campfire, or your house, or your town… We can do ANYTHING together (within reason, people), and I need you! Without you, it’s not going to be much fun.
Thanks for stopping by. Thanks for caring. And I hope you guys are ready to have a good frickin’ time.
