Hello, music enthusiasts around the world:

My life has been completely transformed because of music. I’m not just a spectator. I’m a participant. I’ve been given opportunities to meet incredible artists. To be a part of the support and creation of their passions.  Yet, most importantly, I’ve been able to look into the eyes of the human beings that have poured everything into a song, and say  ‘Thank You. I heard what you were trying to say.’ Musicians need us, as much as we need them.

What did Celebrating an entire decade of my life with music, end up looking like? Here is a very brief outline:

  • 138(ish) concerts around the USA and Europe.
  • Countless local shows in whatever city I was in.
  • 40 Hard Rock Cafe Check-ins around the world. And, I even ended up in their music video!
  • I have no idea how many concert t-shirts or other merchandise items I have collected.
  • I was able to meet the musicians who created the songs that were important to me.
  • Fascinating music history tours and experiences.


My Favourite Quote

“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” – Sergei Rachmaninoff

I became friends with musicians, and have been included in their lives and musical experiences. That’s the most important part. ❤️

Thank you for all of the wonderful memories 🎶

Let’s see where The Feather leads me during this next decade.
