I want to start off by saying how much I love playing at U Street Music Hall! I just love the cozy, personal atmosphere of the venue. The staff is always SO welcoming, and the crowds are.just.the.BEST!

This past Thursday I had the pleasure of opening for Kawehi (Kuh-veh-hee), a super-awesome musician with a knack for looping.

One thing you may or may not know about me is that I’m a sucker for artists who do live looping. And, Kawehi is VERY skilled at it! She even walked us through one of her songs, explaining each element as she built the track. My favorite part of her set was her cover of Mad World… one of my favorite songs.

In addition to being a great performer, she is warm and friendly with a great sense of humor and a potty mouth. hah!

I had a blast on stage, and loved meeting everyone after the show. There’s something so special about  connecting with people through my music.

Also, I’d like to give a big thanks to Nicholas Karlin Photography for these pictures of me on stage.
