" Yes, I think artists have more to give in this world
than just a good time.
I think that there is a place of our higher selves
that we connect to when we hear good music,
see a beautiful picture, or witness
a powerful performance.
I would love for my audience to feel
even just a little of what I am feeling
when I play for them…
because I feel like a door opens
in those moments of shared beauty,
and we have an opportunity to see
into a better world. "
