" 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. "
