from Asheville, North Carolina

Your walking up the streets of Asheville and suddenly become magnetically drawn towards the center of downtown. Is that a violin you hear? Are those drums? You turn a corner and stumble into a crowd of 100 people dancing. The music has put everyone into a trance. You can’t help but surrender to the beat.


The energy of the live show finally captured!


Available everywhere.

A crowd of 100 people.

I call out “Help me name this next piece. It’s new.”

A women walks up to me after the music is over and says

“I don’t know if I have a name for you but I do have a story. My son, who is 4 years old, is very shy. Because of this he has trouble around people. But just now, when you played that song, he danced. In front of all these people.”

Her son’s name is August.

Here it is folks. August the live music video. Enjoy!

Went street performing for the first time in Asheville this year and received the most amazing gift to start the season!


this was created by my friend scavenger who travels the country by train selling his wire art. he picked the mica out of a spring in california. neat!



new orleans canal

i spent a good amount of time in new orleans recently, performing music on the street while also brushing up against voodoo culture. a lot of this was out on the street, particularly in the french quarter. it’s not a place i love to be though. the amount of hustle that’s required just to play a few notes on the violin… it makes me glad to live in a town with laws that prevent the type of ecosystem which flourishes in new orleans. i suppose you could avoid hustling if you weren’t concerned with making money. it’s the part i don’t enjoy. but focusing on financial sustainability can be a large part of sustainability as an independent artist. sometimes too much of a focus.

despite all this, i can’t help but stand in awe at the beauty of new orleans reflected in a simple canal feeding down to the bay; a different kind of ecosystem at play. nature often reflects how simple and beautiful our complicated lives truly are, if we only allow it to be.
