Tonight I played with my new band members for the first time at Mosaic Cafe in Redwood City. Before the show started, while we were on stage practicing and sound checking, I realized how wonderful it is to share music with others, with others. It's also wonderful when I get to share music while performing on my own, but it really is a very different experience getting to perform and feed off of the energy of others.
Music is really intended to bring people together, and I feel a new sense of joy getting to make music with other wonderful souls. I had a similar revelation when I joined the singing group Talisman 4 years ago. Something special happens when music is coming from the hearts of many.
