Needless to say this week and election season was emotionally draining and yes for millions a massive disappointment as thousands took to the street in protest. I always pray and meditate on thoughts of love, togetherness and equality in an often divisive and hateful world. Music is a healer, and can take us away into imagination, dreams, inspire become a vessel for catharsis.
Going into Friday night’s sold-out concerts at Yoshi’s Oakland in my heart more than ever was to not only give a great show but to send them into the night, to their living spaces full of love, faith and hope or at least in gratitude for being alive no matter the obstacles and uncertainty. Even some of the Yoshi’s staff were emotional and told me after the show how I’d made them feel better too. As I like to say – It’s In The Music! No matter what keep it movin’ forward. Stay alert, woke, spread love, kindness and look out for others, pay attention to your surroundings..everyone is not on that ‘love’ page.
