First show of 2018 w/ Richard Osborn and Ross Hammond!

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,

DPG

Sound and healing ) ) )

Hello all!

Many of you may not know that I am in the process of getting a masters in counseling psychology with a focus on how sound/music can be incorporated into healing modalities that address distress, trauma, and work towards attaining greater wellbeing.

Personally speaking, I find music (in both practice and as a listener) to be a cathartic and restorative experience. It offers a non-verbal path towards self-reflection and deeper understandings that words often fail to articulate. I am always on the lookout for insight around this topic and came across this article on Pitchfork of all places. Maybe you’ll find something to connect with here…?

I’m also interested in learning your stories of how you connect through music and sound as a tool for healing practice. Are there things that work/don’t work for you?

Warmly,

DPG

Stand with Bandcamp in supporting Trans rights!

I have been a long-time fan and user of the Bandcamp platform. They have  always advocated for progressive causes and finding ways of supporting the arts. This Friday, Bandcamp will be donating 100% of their sales to the Transgender Law Center. Please join me and the myriad artists – queer, trans, and beyond – to raise awareness and fight against transphobia. I will be donating 100% of my cut from sales as well.

Love to ALL,

DPG
