This week I feel like a working musician, and I'm loving it.
On Tuesday, my friend Tera Hendrickson and I recorded a track that got a placement on the tv show Gotham! Our friend Drew Powell is a regular on the show, but that's not how we got the placement. Tera did some amazing singing in French, and I got to play cafe style piano & accordion. Oo la la!
Wednesday night I went to a screening of After Auschwitz, which I was honored to have written the music for. What a beautiful film producer Jon Kean has made, so moving, based on the lives of six real women who were holocaust survivors. Three of them were at the screening, lovely ladies all in their 90s. I am humbled to have been a part of it, and to have had such great musicians, recording and mixing engineers to work with.
Then tomorrow we head up to Northern CA. Rick & I will teach music improv workshops and do an improv show on Saturday night with Un-Scripted Theater Company. Then The Sweet Potatoes have a lovely house concert on Sunday afternoon.
And at the end of the month, the book I've been writing about being a musician for improv groups will have it's official release. I feel happy and blessed to have so many creative outlets. When the business knocks me down (which it does to everyone at times), I want to remember and appreciate the joy of these creative opportunities in my life.
