Moving through worlds…. || 02.09.2013
Tonight Quinn and I played our first show on our short but sweet Colorado tour. It was at a beautiful listening room called Steve’s Guitars and the audience and show were l-o-v-e-l-y. Driving up to Carbondale (ski country) from Denver, we rolled through winter canyons and road that had been blasted into existence by dynamite decades ago.
In one month, I have written music by the Nile with artists from across East Africa, hit the midwest with my solo project steeped in Jazz and Ethiopian influences, and come to the high country for a distinctly American music with Quinn. Surreal to say the least. Life is an adventure. Moving through so many states of being, modes of music making, and ecologies is an inner and outer whirlwind. Sometimes it’s overwhelming, other times I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s both, and neither, everything all at once. Time to write a song about it!
