Thrilled to see my new album “Between Two Worlds” materialize after much anticipation! They look & sound better than I could have ever hoped, thanks in large part to the efforts of Cory Rayborn at Three Lobed Recordings and artist Billy Joe Miller for creating such stunning artwork. Official release date is Aug. 20th, but you can pre-order it now over at: http://threelobed.com/tlr/tlr100.html
Very excited and grateful to share the new music with you!
This is a pic of artist James Turrell’s mesmerizing “Three Gems” installation at De Young museum, SF – pure Magic!
Seasons are definitely a relative thing when it comes to temperate climates like San Francisco’s. Markers of cold here are more associated with the light, longer nights, and adding a scarf or gloves, but without a doubt our modest version of Winter seems to be in full swing these days and I’m loving it. The light hangs low and golden and the sunsets have been particularly epic, especially on a clear night. All are perfect ingredients to make music to. I’ve been working on a couple soundtrack projects, both of which are for documentary films. They are unfinished so I’ll spare the particulars until they’re done. I thought it would be nice to periodically share some of the ‘works-in-progess’. This track felt like a good one to start with considering the recent cold weather and how it always seems to take hold of me and inspire. Hope you enjoy what you hear and wishing you a very happy holiday and New Year! As always, thanks for taking the time to read and listen.
More to come…
Love & Light,
Last weekend I had the pleasure and privilege of playing some songs at the very lovely San Francisco Zen Center with friends Barn Owl and Date Palms. Artist David Wilson also did a beautiful temporary installation collaging colored gels onto large windows. I can’t believe it took me 16 years living in SF before entering this sanctuary! I was surprised to find out it was built in the 20’s by the amazing architect Julia Morgan who’s designed some of my favorite buildings around… Chapel of the Chimes, Hearst Castle, Berkley bell tower to name a few. Before it became the Zen Center it was a home for single Jewish women. Amazing history. The event was presented by the good folks from The Bold Italic and was co-curated by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma of Root Strata. It was a really great coming together of worlds. Everyone at the center was incredibly gracious and open to essentially a bunch of strangers taking over their space. Good times.
The first two pics were taken by the always smiling Shundo from the center who wrote a nice little bit about the show on the Zen Center blog. I took the second two, one is of Barn Owls set up and the second of David Wilson’s installation.
