Winter is one of my favorite seasons. Maybe it reminds me of my country and the (mostly) four seasons each province encounters. What I like most about winter though, is that it represents a sort of "reset" button in the year. A time to reflect and hibernate; a time in which being recluse is absolutely acceptable and understandable. I think that it's healthy to take a break from the world and its insecurities, from the humming and the hawing, from even your closest friends.
I've taken the time to look inwards rather than outwards during the winter and it's been nice to just focus on myself for a while - which already tends to happen by default as a musician already but I wanted to search a little deeper. Writing has been the perfect vehicle for me to express the musings in my head and surely, soon enough, I will have another record in the can.
I have two shows in January, one tomorrow, in fact. I'll be playing at Pianos at 8pm with my right-hand-man, Rob Ritchie on guitar, and another show on January 29th at Strong Place at 7:30. All details are in the 'Events' section of my website.
Amid the bristling air and clear blue skies, I have also managed to get a little help from my friends and submitted a video for this year's NPR Tiny Desk Concerts Competition. You can check out the video here.
Winter feels warmer when you have friends around, so I hope to see you sooner than later.
