I never knew that word could hold so much meaning. Sorry I haven't been around lately - I will start making this a daily thing (hopefully), but I've been updating my website (www.gretchenelizabethmusic) & surrounding sites with all new photos & information. So basically, I've spend endless time on the computer for the past week. I never want to see another HTML, CSS, or XML code - at least for the time being. The good news: EVERYTHING IS DONE! FINALLY!

I'd love to know what everyone things about the now theme throughout everything, & especially the website in general. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please email the webmaster. We love the feedback & if it helps you, we're totally okay with that!

Finally can also be apart of getting things done. I've been working with Belle and will continue working until we're done putting together the arrangements for the final songs on the EP before we can go back to Orlando to finish recording. It's been so much fun, because we can all be goofy - but we still get work done. & I love how you think your song is going to end up one way, and then it hits you, "That's it!" & it turns around completely in a new direction.

Ahhh, the life of a musician. I'm so in love with it. I can't wait to continue on my journey & touch the lives of people around me & beyond.

Until we meet again,

Playing catch-up

Sorry guys, I accidentally deleted my other blog!! So here are the two posts I managed to get up, & here we go again.


Name: Gretchen Elizabeth
Nicknames: G, Gretch, Jelly Bean
Birthdate: July 5th
Eye Color: Green
Height: 5'9"
Favorite Color: Red
Favorite Animal: White Tiger
Favorite Flower: Tulips & Orchids

Now that we got that out of the way, I'll let you know what I'm doing here: I wanted a place to express my own thoughts & views on life and the complicated ups & downs of pursuing my dream career in music. As I continue to push myself forward in the right direction, I'm learning that things are becoming harder & that nothing is ever simple. If you really want anything, you have to fight for it. & Trust me, I'm fighting! My wonderful parents and two brothers are so supportive, loving, and understanding, and I thank God everyday for them. Jennifer, my manager, is a dream come true. To the rest of my family, friends, and fans that I have already gained I love you all very much for all of the encouragement and support over the years. So that's about it for now, I'm fighting for what I want and I will not give up. Consider my dukes up! ;) I'm breaking out & nothing can stop me!

Until next time...



It's nearly 2am, and I'm not tired at all. I'm really loving the fact that one day - all of this insomnia will pay off. Of course, when I have to be awake at 2am, I'm probably not going to want to be. But enough with the late night sleep deprived hysterics, on to better things!

In the past few days, there have been some updates in my lovely music career: For starters, I'm working on re-designing my website! Working on ideas & it shall be up by the end of next weekend (hopefully). We have also officially titled the EP! I can't tell you what it is yet because it's a secret... but as soon as I can, of course - you'll be one of the first to know. :) We are also talking about looking for band members. Announcements will be posted as soon as the website is back up.

I honestly can't think of anything else right now, I know - boring. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful with your boredom. I'm just the girl who's awake at nearly 2am, who can't think of anything better to do but randomly talk about my life & hopeful career. Maybe I'll be more helpful & answer a few more questions about me...

Are you a morning or night person?
I think we've covered that one, but just in case you didn't catch it the first time: I'm definitely a night owl.

What do you usually think about right before falling asleep?
I pray & think about what I need to do the next day.

Have any bad habits?
I don't know if these count as bad habits, but I chew on my guitar pics & I fidget with my hair (a lot) when I'm stressed or bored.

List 5 goals on your life's to-do list:
1. Play to at least 5 sold out crowds
2. Bungee Jumping
Not in that order, & I'm still contemplating the rest of the list & the importance :)

Name 1 thing you miss about being a kid:
The innocence. The overwhelming feeling that everything is so simple & your parents are the epitome of everything you want in life.

Name 1 thing you love about being an adult:
Making a name for myself. Taking my old thoughts and values and making them my own & new, showing my parents what kind of woman they have raised & being my own person. It's truly exciting finding out who I really am.

What's your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
One of two things; Either getting dressed up & going out with the girls or staying in for a pajama night & watching dvds :)

What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
When the weather is nice on any day, I love to sit outside & write.

Name 1 thing not many people know about you:
I can actually live without my blackberry. :P
