Things are falling into place for Austin Jenckes, a singer-songwriter who grew up in the Valley. He has just returned to his Nashville home after his final appearance on NBC’s “The Voice,” and two whirlwind performance tours that started immediately after the show. He’s marrying his longtime friend and girlfriend, Brittany Townsend, this August, and is working on his next album, scheduled to come out this fall. And this week, he accomplished what he moved to Nashville to do, become a professional musician. “This week, I’m signing my first publishing deal,” Jenckes said in a telephone interview. “That basically means I’ll be paid to write songs, and that includes my songs for myself, and for other people.”

From the neck down, the look was casual, sweats in fact. On top, though, it was all glam and sparkles, with long false eyelashes and a foot-high blonde wig. The martini-swirling phenomenon underneath it all was making the look work, while simultaneously working the Fall City Bistro on a Sunday evening in February. “Good morning!” Akasha Manila greeted the guests trickling in for dinner, “good to see you! I just woke up!” Manila’s sleepy claim fit perfectly with the “Divas” theme of the night’s show. It probably wasn’t true though, because this particular diva, like his fellow performers, was already made-up for her appearance in the semimonthly “Night Queens” drag show at the bistro, and doing makeup takes a while.

Nice column about spelling people’s names right. I have one of those names that somehow never seems to get spelled correctly, and it has been an issue with me all my life. Anyway after reading with much interest, I had a great laugh when I read that you misspelled Cathi Linden’s name wrong!
