I meet and work with artists of many colors – jazz cats, mellow singer/songwriters, glamorous pop divas and classical virtuosos.

And they all want to transmit that same energy, those same feelings of purity, originality, tradition and non-tradition. I help them in their mission.  

Some of them are lost – far away from home, from themselves. On a rope with a safety net underneath. If I’m so fortunate that they trust me with themselves, I destroy their net and push them into the unknown, where magic lies.  
I believe every human being, every musician is unique; but only to the extent they’re able to turn themselves inside out in front of the world, their audience.
