The other night I found myself at open mic night. I love the term “found myself.” It sounds so unintentional, almost accidental even…

You see, I love recording music in a studio and there’s something about playing live in front of people. Playing live is like the ultimate improv without any structure, alike swinging on a trapeze without a net, feeling the rush of the wind. Yes, there is the fear of falling, of failing. Being able to express oneself in front of others in such a raw way that goes beyond the routine nine to five. It’s so so so… so human. Something about playing live is like placing yourself on a platter, handing it out, and saying, here I am — please like this for this is me. I am fully open right now.
