Summer Tour #4 – July in Europe. Contemplations.
Back home. This tour has all about showing people the live audio / visual show I’ve been working on. Controlling the visuals has really added a whole new experience in all this for me. Thank you so much to all the amazing EU people who decided to listen to what I have to offer in Graz, Hamburg, Wroclaw, Krakow, Glade Festival, Numberg, Prague, Sonar Festival, Wuppertal, Copenhagen, Balaton Festival, Amsterdam, Brighton, Berlin, Dour Festival, Nijmegen, Paris and Antwerp.
49 shows in the past few months has been a serious experience. I’ve been a hermit all these years of writing music and experiencing it all in a different way like this has been dynamic to say the least.
I’ve met so many amazing people, ate local foods, drank local drink and saw local sites in as many spots as possible. I’ve been given gifts. I’ve given gifts. I rode in a boat for hours with new friends through the canals of Amsterdam on a beautiful evening under a giant moon. I’ve experienced serious sadness and homesick feelings of emptiness in a fancy hotel in Brighton. The appreciation for home and family continues to grow daily. I’ve learned that airports are incredible environments for working on compassion, patience and non-judgement. I’ve learned that even though that’s true, I still find em touch to deal with.
Through all this I’ve contemplated moving from my home of San Francisco for the past 5 years to Los Angeles. We shall see. This has been amazing. Much love to everyone continuing to pay attention.
