It seems that the Los Angeles show is to be 27 January at the L.A. Knitting Factory. Again, this will be a vocal focused and acoustic guitar focused show as I will be on stage with ONLY guitarist John Cobbett and not a band. Even though it can be great to have a band behind you, I love the other approach where there is one accompanist. I have performed live this way before through the years with Renee Nelson, Michael Gira, Michael Bradley, Brian Castillo, and William Faith. There are also several new recording projects in the works and now I have been invited to do a spoken word festival in March in Madrid, Spain. Currently, my inner space now is one of being drained and … with no answers. I am taking it one day at a time and trying to be kind to myself. Sunday night I wanted to be obliterated. I felt betrayed and confronted at every turn. I am purging a lot of emotions now. The ride is through “hell.” Yet, I realize the ride is necessary for an artist to do new work.
