Watching the videos of Bob Reynolds and Janek Gwizdala, two incredible 21st-century musicians, inspired me to start a vlog of my own, documenting my experiences as a growing musician. Below is my first leap into the pond. I wanted to do this because I don't want to let myself get too comfortable in my own musical bubble. A journey in music cannot survive in a vacuum; it is a communal path, where listening and exchange of ideas and passions are the highest virtues. I hope that anyone who watches will feel energized themselves, whether they agree or disagree with what I have to say, and make that known so that we can all learn and grow and make beautiful things together.
