last night was unforgettable. thank you to everyone who came and shared in the evening. feeling very invigorated and excited to further explore the stark world of solo performance. thank you so, so much to @acehotelchicago for inviting me to perform in such a gorgeous setting. thank you also to @asraigarden for dressing the stage in a cloud of flowers. i am still floating.
my first full-length album, the spoils, came out 10 years ago today. 10 years ago i was studying at university, and working a part-time job at an art gallery. i remember spending hours at a time sitting in a gallery and staring at white walls. i had a lot of time to think. through that indentured solitude , my mind swarmed with ideas. that world inside of me was spit out into the spoils. to this day it’s one of my favorite records i’ve ever made. there’s so much in that music i don’t remember doing. it feels as if it just happened. lots of experimenting... not a lot of critical thinking. as it should be. to this day i try to find the creative freedom i felt while making this record. god bless audacity.
