A rainy Sunday offering…

Video

Hello,

Hope this finds you doing well! As promised, I will be sharing occasional musical offerings while we hunker down and wait out the COVOID-10 pandemic. It’s late March here in SF and we are experiencing our usual spring rain which became the backdrop of why I chose this particular piece. Rain is always welcomed but especially so now as I/we fight the need wander outdoors.

Wishing you all my best and thank you for listening!

Hello!

I’m honored and excited to be sharing an evening of music with solo guitarists Ross Hammond and Richard Osborn, Friday January 12th. The show will be held in an incredible cathedral in Oakland that is sure to be an amazing space for sound.

Can’t think of a better way to welcome 2018! Hope you can join us…

Love & light,

Two exciting SF shows next week!

Hi folks!

I’m playing a couple shows next week in SF I hope you can make it to:

Friday, October 13th I’ll be playing a solo set opening up for my buds Balmorhea (touring in support of their lovely new album, Clear Languge) at the Swedish American Hall. The following night, Saturday, Oct 14th, I’ll be collaborating with filmmaker Bill Basquin for Night Rounds, an exploratory evening of live film + music at the LAB. Both shows will be quite different…. be great to see you!

Warmly,

DPG

Thoughts on love…

A nice capture of me celebrating the love and union of some dear friends. The ceremony brought together a beautiful cross-section of community and was a sweet reminder of the transformative impact love can have in our lives. There is a lot of fear circling around out there motivating acts of hate, isolationism, and violence. But we have to remember that racism and fear of the “other” is learned.

Nelson Mandela put it best by saying, “People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

I believe if we act from a place of love, wounds can heal.

With an open heart,

DPG

H O P E

I wrote this sketch the day after going to the San Francisco’s women’s march, one of many that took place alongside the Women’s March on Washington January 21, 2017. Thousands upon thousands of people spanning every generation, nationality, gender, sexuality, and class came together to march in solidarity for equality, unity, and love. It was the largest demonstration simultaneously exercised around the globe on a single day in history. The experience inspired a deep sense of hope that I had not felt for a long while. This music is an attempt at capturing that feeling as it lingered.

Much love,

DPG
