This is the first performance I've done this year that was entirely in natural light. We're very close to the Solstice now, and the fading sun and darkening room seemed like the right way to connect to something outside of the house. This one seems more lush than some others--possibly the rich tonality from the guitar's pickups, as well as the long cistern reverb. A kind of beauty presented itself for this one. I hope you enjoy it, and that you have the best possible summer.
