Bandcamp is once-again waiving their cut of sales to support musicians being impacted by COVID-19 pandemic. 100% proceeds today will go directly to artists until midnight PDT. So If you are in a position to support, today is a good day to do so!
Please check you my personal page but I also encourage you to explore other pages, as many folks have shared new/unreleased gems specifically for today. A few that come to mind include buddies Chuck Johnson, Sarah Davachi, and Mike Weis. Additionally, there are a ton of amazing small labels that could use help to keep things afloat.
In other news, I wanted to share a sweet new playlist by the venerable Ben Watt who graciously included me on called “Season of the String”. It can be accessed via Spotify or Apple Music. He spoke about his inspiration for it on NPR a few days back. I’m truly honored he’s found my tunes soothing during these uncertain days, as I hope you do too.
Thank you as always for taking the time to listen and support!
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…
