a tumultuous start

I am writing this from Tampa where I'm attending a conference for D'Addario, as well as playing a couple shows Sat. and Sun. with Indigo Girls, coincidentally also in the Tampa area. I realized how lax I've been in writing blog posts, so here's an attempt to sum up the first couple weeks of this new year.

As it has in the last couple years, 2016's first show was on Jan. 3rd in Atlanta with Indigo Girls. We performed a benefit at Terminal West for Save the Libraries. It was great to be reunited with the band for that show as it had been a couple months since we last played together. As always, the Atlanta crowd was insanely supportive and wonderful. 

A week later, millions felt the loss of an icon - David Bowie. He remains one of my biggest artistic influences. His life, his art, and his death, have had a deeply lasting effect on me. How fitting for this pioneer, who has touched so many other influential musicians, artists, creators, and thinkers, to ensure that the even his passing was accompanied by a strikingly profound artistic statement. 

Onward, we must continue, though we carry Bowie's influence with us always.

This month is also the time of Toshi Reagon's legendary birthday concerts at Joe's Pub. I'm thrilled to be a part of it this year on two concerts, and am so looking forward to rocking out with my old pals again. Having the chance to celebrate music and life is the greatest honor and the best medicine.
