Well it’s officially been one month since shelter-in-place took effect here in San Francisco. As we all learn to adjust to this strange interior existence, I am reminded of the uncertainty many of us hold as we go about our lives. This tune reflects that uncertainty… kind of like getting on a train and not quite knowing where you’re going. Onward, onward!
It’s the middle of the week and my sense of time continues to feel more and more abstracted. A friend of mine once described the difference between being “on” time and being “in” time. To be on time is to adhere to a schedule and to prioritize things like punctuality. To be in time means one relates to time in a much looser way. I identify with the latter and tend to move at my own pace.
With that, I offer a tune to welcome the sun after a couple days of steady rain. Music is my marker…
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!
As we adjust to life indoors during this pandemic, I find solace in those things I can turn to as a way to stay grounded. Music has been a lifesaver for me in this regard. I’ve also been inspired by all the folks who’ve used creative practices to process and connect with others during this strange time. Recently, I came across a post where somebody described themselves as an artist-in-residence as opposed to the much bleaker shelter-in-place. I liked this reframe!
Here is a snapshot I recorded this morning. The sky had a particularly beautiful clarity, as it had rained the previous day. Hope this brings a little more light to your day. More to come…
Dear all – hope this finds you safe and well during these challenging times.
As you might imagine, musicians are being impacted by this pandemic on a multitude of levels. Here is one way you can support! This Friday March, 20 from midnight to midnight Bandcamp will be waiving their revenue share so that artists can pocket 100% of sales. It is a lovely gesture that can make a massive difference for folks. I plan to participate and I hope you will too. Might even share some new material on my page… we’ll see!
Greetings! Tomorrow night (2/27) I will do my best to channel the scene in this flyer… hope you can join us at Minnesota Street Project [Lounge] presented by the good folks at Lonesome Station. I’m on first… Tickets / info
Wishing you all a very happy summer solstice filled with sunshine, togetherness and good health!
To further honor the sun, I am pleased to share a feature brought to you by the wonderful folks at Quiet Space based out of South Africa who spotlighted my Longform Editions contribution. In addition to including this piece, the episode thoughtfully compiled a cross-section of musical offerings spanning several of my releases over the years. Very grateful for their support and hope you enjoy the tunes…
It’s been a minute… hope this finds you doing well. I’m excited to announce that today marks the official release of my contribution to Longform Editions. It’s a true honor to take part in this lovingly-curated series and share in a space with so many thoughtful adventurous musicians. To learn more about this music, please visit the site link above.
