REFLECTIONS

I had just started performing at clubs when a friend introduced me to the owner of a famous NY music venue. It was my dream to perform there.

The owner heard my story and agreed to hear me play. I was nervous - my hands shook each time I lifted them off the keys. But I was determined. I performed those early originals with more passion than ever before, and by the time I finished I was beaming. 

I was the only one.

The owner looked at me with a kind expression and asked, “So, you’ve been really successful in finance. Why do you want to be a musician?” 

I was crushed. Really crushed. After all, I thought I was a musician. 
 
I’ve improved a lot since then. And I’m still growing. Unfortunately, his venue has long since closed; I’ll never have the chance to perform there. 

But I’ve since realized the answer to his question. 

I thrive on the challenge. 
 
I love the flow state I’m in when I’m playing.

I love connecting with people who feel like one of my songs expresses exactly what they’re feeling. And the better I get, the more those things happen.

I’m the most alive when I’m just outside of my comfort zone, overcoming fear and doing things I’ve never done before, like this recent 20-city tour.
 
The band's performance schedule is more mellow this summer, and I will be focusing more on things that slipped a little during our most recent tour (my family, for starters).

We will be playing an outdoor show at the Levitt in Westport, CT, June 27, and a couple of festivals in Europe in July (Montreux and Umbria!). Check out the dates below.

And we’ll be working on some fun music videos that should be ready soon.
 
Summer is a great time to enjoy family and the outdoors - I'm planning to live mine to the fullest and I hope you do, too!
