This past Friday, I had the honor of performing and collaborating alongside the incredibly talented Mauricio Jiminez from Night Lights at Backyard Sessions in Mar Vista, LA. After Mau’s wonderful performance, I stepped onto the stage to perform a ~sneak peek~ set in anticipation for my new EP that is soon to be released.
It was incredibly overwhelming watching the audience react to my set in such a joyful and energy-filled way.
The key highlight to my night was when I performed “Missing Piece”. This, to me, is a very personal piece that comes from the very first day I saw my beautiful nephew after his arrival into the world. I wanted this song to speak and touch the audience with warmth and light.
Reassuring them, and my nephew, that everything is going to be alright and that through music, perspectives can change. Without my audience and fans, my life would not be complete.
They would be the key missing piece to my success. The fact that I got to see this message reach the physical audience in front of me last Friday, was absolutely phenomenal.
I want to thank everyone who came to the Backyard Sessions and gave Mau and myself the opportunity to perform. I would also like to thank the wonderful Alison Buck for capturing this lovely night and my accompaniment, the great Kazumi.
~*Look out for my new EP release coming soon*~
