Our day to day can be a thief of time. We work or operate in a way that sucks us up and spits us into a new year. I certainly feel that of 2011 and it’s almost gone. I seem to recall that I played quite a few more gigs than I did in 2010. If I concentrate I can remember each one and how glorious they all were. They are the rare moments in which I find myself completely in the moment and time stands still. This is one, if not THE one, reason why I do what I do. I also love the electricity that is exchanged between an audience and a player. This could be at a theater, a comedy, a concert or a dance performance. It is a rare moment of pause, breath and connectivity between beings that is of creation and shared experience.
I know I’ve been out of the loop for a lil’ bit. But I just wanted to take a moment to share with you how much I appreciate seeing your faces at my shows. Since it is the season for giving thanks, allow me to give my sincerest to you. Thank you for showing up.
Whether you are new to my website, music, shows or have been a fan of mine since I was singing the alphabet, I. love. your. face.
I’d love to see more of it and promise to do my part and play out more. I won’t make you promise to come to every show. But I will tell you that when you do make it out, we will make it an event. Together.
I’d also like to give you a gift. A small token of my love and gratitude for all you have given me.
I recently went to see a musician that I greatly admire sing at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. She was lovely and exactly what I expected. However, I was NOT expecting to be blown away by the opening act; Sean Rowe.
Sean is a lyrical genius and vocal powerhouse reminiscent of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and (visually) Zach Galifianakis. Anywho, he is my gift to all of you.
Maybe we can discuss his works in person next time. Perhaps at a gig? Hmmmm???
Enjoy with love!
