We’re just on the other side of a whirlwind of activity leading up to the release of our last album – ‘Just for Fun’. Planning, checklists, details, chart writing . . . . usually the kind of thing that would ‘take the fun out of’ a project.
Grateful for the mystery, magic, and amusement of music.
Grateful for connecting with others through music.
It really helps bring into focus the true purpose of teaching, recording, and performing music . . . . to soften, lighten, and brighten our human experience.
A heart wrenching song can touch us as we relate to the pain expressed through the music, softening our own experience in knowing that the emotion is universal. It also helps move that energy that can have a tendency to get stuck.
Through rhythm, a lilting melody, humor or a great story told within a tune music can lighten our mood and brighten our perspective.
The biggest compliment we’ve received – besides watching young children actually move and groove to the music – came from an old friend who DJs at WTJU 91.1fm Cville WHAN 102.9fm Richmond. Bruce said he thinks of ‘Just for Fun’ as a ‘celebration of life’.
That warms our hearts 😉
Stay tuned for more fun pictures from the release parties.
