“Norwegian Wood” is the first song I learned by ear, also first song I explored in DADGAD, and the first song I was inspired to start singing! Taken from my recent house concert in Berkeley thanks to the DI out on my @eliteacoustics1 amp. The @lrbaggsofficial Anthem SL in my @sgimusiccorp helps with capturing the tone of my guitar, love this combination!
Thank you Raja and your beautiful family and friends for the attentive ears, hospitality, incredibly delicious homemade food and opening your home to a night of music! This is my favorite way to connect with my community, where we can share a personal experience in an inviting environment. I’m so thankful to share these songs with you, and was blessed beyond words to enjoy a night of fellowship with you!
“Limbo” was written in a time of uncertainty. I can’t wait to perform my compositions for you at my Album Release Show in Auburn CA at the General Gomez Event Center Wednesday October 3rd at 7pm! Preorder my album “Let the Clouds Pass” from my website. Even if you can’t make it, I’ll mail the album to you or hand deliver it if you’re in the area!
The second sneak peak of my new album! Please listen with headphones or full range speakers. October 3rd is the album release party at General Gomez event Center in Auburn CA. Special guest @jasminebaileymusic and Don Parker. All online preorders include a ticket to the show! (Or free shipping on your cd if you cannot attend.)
My debut album will be released October 9th, 2018!! Special thanks to Eric Chun at Creative Music Services in Auburn for recording, Alex Anderson of @treeoflifestudio for mixing and mastering, Mara Souza of @lazysparrowstudios for her fabulous artwork, Sean De Burca of @sdeburca_design for his digital services, Stonebridge/Furch guitars who crafted the guitar I trust to do my compositions justice, and every one of you who encouraged me along this journey!
“In-between-tuning-musings” improvisation. I’ve grown tired of trying to play perfect, I just want to play sincerely. This kind of free playing has always been a big part of what attracts me to the language of music. I hope this more unrefined version of my art making encourages you to step more into the creative potential you possess, you are valuable and worthy of love.
I’ll be noodling at Farmhaus tonight in Granite Bay, 6:30-9:30 if you like fancy dinners and unfiltered guitar music.
New video is up on my YouTube! Fresh from my west coast tour, please enjoy this live performance of my song, “Covenant”. Did you know I’ve put up three new videos on my YouTube in the last three weeks? Go like, comment and subscribe if you like seeing videos like this!
Tell me, do you want more full length YouTube videos from me? How about a full length album? Are you here for the funny faces and unorthodox dance moves? Let me know in the comments!
I couldn’t dance in 15/8 if I tried, unless you call this involuntary movement dancing.
An excerpt from my live performance of my composition, “Let The Clouds Pass” at @organicnorthtown in Arcata.
New video on my YouTube channel! A live performance of my original composition. “Midnight Picnic Near the Ocean”
Sometimes you have to say goodbye, this song was written in memoria of one specific beautiful evening, in an otherwise chaotic but valuable chapter of my life. I hope you find rest and comfort in the notes and spaces.
Today I played one of my most favorite coffee shops in all the lands. Northtown Coffee in Arcata CA. I also figured out how to send the direct out of my mixing board to the phone. Hope you enjoy this improvisation as much as I did!
