On today's episode, Lisa and producer Shawn interview Lucky Star instructor Mandy Rowden, an Austin, Tx-based singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and the creator of Girl Guitar, a women’s guitar school and rock camp that is celebrating its 15th Anniversary in 2022. Mandy played classical violin and piano through college, where she began writing songs and has since worked and toured playing guitar, bass, keys, drums, fiddle, mandolin, and harmonica. Besides teaching and touring, Mandy is the resident musician at Lucky Star Art Camp and a contributing songwriter for Songs For The Soul. Her first full-length studio album ‘These Bad Habits’ (2015) featured Grammy winner Lloyd Maines (Dixie Chicks) and Grammy nominee Redd Volkaert (Merle Haggard) and was voted #2 Album of the Year in the Austin Chronicle Music Poll; since then she has placed in the Top Ten as Musician of the Year as well as Songwriter, Female Vocalist, Album, and Song of the Year. In March of 2018 Mandy released 'When That Day Comes' on Howlin' Dog Records and was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, and Album of the Year in Nashville's Josie Music Awards. Her fourth studio album, 'Parachute', was released in March of 2021 to critical acclaim. In her spare time Mandy is pursuing a Master's Degree in Music History from Texas State University.

***********************************************************************************
Lucky Star is a women’s art and whole living sleepaway camp that takes place each fall in the Texas hill country. This is no art retreat in a hotel conference room…and no, we’re not camping in tents… we’re actually “glamping” in climate controlled cabins that are built into the hillside overlooking the Guadalupe River, and we’re eating gourmet, chef-prepared food in a dining hall like we’re at Hogwarts! We’re fully immersed in creative workshops like jewelry making, astrology, mixed media collage, apothecary, abstract painting, writing, sewing, yoga, welding, pottery, and we’ve even had classes on raising alpacas and tomahawk throwing! No dishes, no laundry, no driving kids, and no deadlines or demanding bosses. Just a solid five days to be YOU because we believe in the importance of discovering/reigniting the authentic part of you that makes you feel ALIVE and we know that CREATIVITY can be a powerful catalyst for growth, healing, self-care, connection, and just the spark you need to thrive.
When we’re not at camp learning, laughing, making, and singing by the campfire, we’re a thriving creative community of supportive women known as the Lucky Star Galaxy and we’d love for you to join us!
