“We are not alone. We do not exist alone and we cannot create alone. What this world needs is a humanistic awakening of the desire to raise one’s life condition to a place where our actions are rooted in altruism and compassion. You cannot hide behind a profession or instrument; you have to be human. Focus your energy on becoming the best human you can be. Focus on developing empathy and compassion. Through the process you’ll tap into a wealth of inspiration rooted in the complexity and curiosity of what it means to simply exist on this planet. Music is but a drop in the ocean of life….” –Herbie hancock and Wayne Shorter -Open Letter to Artists
“As an artist, creator and dreamer of this world, we ask you not to be discouraged by what you see but to use your own lives, and by extension your art, as vehicles for the construction of peace….”Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock open letter
On the 21st of November at 7:30pm Alex Chadsey and I will be performing music from 730 to 930 pmAs representatives of the Seattle City of Music and Port of Seattle Alex Chadsey and I
have been playing music together at Seatac Airport for the last few months.
We also both live in the Artist Lofts at Rainier and Martin Luther King.
These Mt. Baker Artist Lofts share our bottom floor with a preschool,
two Art Galleries and the new coffee house, Compadre Coffee. Compadre Coffee has quickly become a place for the artists in the building to hang out
and enjoy good coffee, our neighbors, and free wifi.
It also catches a flow of folks coming and going from the Mt Baker Light Rail Station just steps away.
On the 21st of November Alex Chadsey and I will be performing music
from 730 to 930 pm. No cover
Just catch the light rail over, buy some coffee, toss something into the band’s tip jar and enjoy.
I am sitting in the window of ‘Compadre Coffee’ preparing myself to ask my good neighbor
for some help making postcards and a business card.
I need one for each of the following: Birth Songs- Private Event- Cool Jazz
Private Singing Lessons-
What else? What about a card for a community singing class?
