Great day to support artist on Bandcamp!

Greetings everyone !

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!

Sending love and wishing all good health!

Onward, onward…

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!

With love,

For the time being…

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…

Wishing you all good health!

Supporting Artists During the Pandemic

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!

Wishing you all good health and lightness.

Take care,

DPG

Solstice Blessings & Spotlight on Quiet Space

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…

With love and light,

Next Friday, April 5th at Adobe Books & Arts Cooperative!!!

I’m am looking forward to be sharing an evening of exploratory sounds hosted by Adobe Books & Arts Cooperative in celebration of the release of Shirley Shirley Shirley, best described as an “interspecies experience with plant generated music”. The brainchild of this work is Nico Georgis, who will be accompanied by fellow sonic voyager, Matt Baldwin. To read more on this collaboration and to listen/purchase the album, please go here. I will get things started around 7:30 with a synth/guitar excursion. The event is FREE with a suggested donation. Hope you can join us!

Warmly,

DPG
