With the new year in mind, my main goal with writing these blogs is to offer the reader a musical taste of a professional musicians life and a chance to check out a performance or two while in town or nearby. Some shows are free and some require you to purchase a ticket. I hope to offer you entertainment, curiosity and consistency.
You can find a couple of "new series" I have begun online on my Instagram under the "Get Inspired" section where I am offering daily readings from Emily Silva's Sunrise Gratitude Book which I have been reading myself for two years now. My heart felt it was time to share this so you can hopefully get inspired and go back to listen as much as you need to daily. I have also begun a weekly series on my Tik Tok posting short clips of songs I have recorded on horn, called "Guess That Tune Tuesday"
In Musicland this month, either around town or out of town there are some great shows coming up, I hope to see you at something.
