Thank you!

COVID19 was just as unexpected as snow in July. And so were chaos and panic that followed, and I know we are all if not physically then emotionally affected. We are depressed, scared, and intimidated by the pandemic.

 

I spent the first few weeks of the quarantine not being able to function, and even now I have days when I am scared for myself and my family, and at times the fear is paralyzing.

One morning I woke up and said to myself: "Self, we need to figure something out to make us all feel better".

But how? Just as millions of musicians around the world, I found myself stuck at home. All my concerts in the US and abroad are canceled, and we are all hurting emotionally and financially.

 

And this is not just about us musicians. You, our audience, the people for whom we perform, are now deprived of something you love: going to live concerts. So... I wanted to do what I could to make it better for all of us, that is why I have launched my online concert series.

I am now performing for you from home, and you can grab your drink, sit back, and enjoy the music. Sometimes it's just me, and sometimes I am joined by my friends-musicians also performing from their homes.  The quality of sound might not be perfect but believe me, we put our hearts and souls into these performances to keep your spirit up. And frankly, our own as well because

 

We are all connected and we are in it together!

This is how it works:

WHEN:

Every last Sunday of the month at 5 PM (PDT) 

until the quarantine is over.

HOW LONG:

about 30 minutes
