with Bell and Friends
You are healthy, you are safe at home, and it's great but I bet the panic has gotten to you, and in that you are not alone! We are all depressed, scared, and intimidated by this pandemic. I spent five days of it 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.
But one morning I woke up and said to myself: "Self, we need to figure something out to make us all feel better".
Just as millions of musicians around the world, my concerts here in LA and out of state were canceled, and even my European tour in the fall is hanging in the air. We are all hurting emotionally and financially. That said, this is not just about the musicians. You, our audience, the people for whom we perform, are now deprived of something you love: going to live concerts. So... in an attempt to do what I can to make it better for all of us, I am launching my first ever online concert series.
I will perform for you from home, and you can grab your drink, sit back, and enjoy the music. Sometimes I will perform live, sometime the performance might be pre-recorded; sometimes it will be just me, and sometimes I will be joined by my friends-musicians also performing from their homes. The quality of sound might not be perfect but believe me, we will put our hearts and souls into these performance to keep your spirit up. And frankly, our own as well because
We are all connected!
