I love to write songs that take an unexpected angle: the untold story, the unsung hero. I like to challenge clichés, symbols, and assumptions by turning them on their head. I often employ paradox to take the listener beyond their own reality. Roots, folk, blues, and Americana influences render songs more familiar and accessible- creating a comfortable space, like a well-worn easy chair.
Thats the music I like to make.
The empathy project is another step in this journey. This 8-song EP takes me out of my own shoes and let me walk around form many different points of view- as pathways to understanding.
The Empathy Project is supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County government and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Their generous support makes all this possible, but I’m only partway there. I NEED YOUR HELP!
