As many of my close friends already know, this past September I made a major change in my musical life. I walked away from my Music Director position of close to 16 years. I decided it was time for me to move on to doing more of what I feel I'm here to do and fully be myself.
This change has now allowed me to focus on my work as a bassist and vocalist and I'm already finding the freedom rewarding. I'm able to say yes to many more opportunities that I've been wanting to be a part of and it's allowing me to grow. Music is a strange business, as anyone who does it professionally will tell you, but it is also a place to learn about yourself. I'm learning I have a lot I want to express musically to people and ideas are coming to me everyday, like someone just turned on a faucet of creativity in my head and I'm just trying to keep up with it. My job is to now sort it all out and decide what I want to share with you all. Out of all of it, I'm sure there is one thing that rises above all, I want you to smile when you hear it. It's the best gift anyone one can really give: a smile.
I look forward to seeing you soon, whether at a performance, Starbucks, or even hopping down the street with my daughter. Thanks for being a part of this journey, for without someone to listen, music isn't really music, it's noise.
All the best to you always,
