This fall, I'll be returning to the Bay Area to complete my fellowship as part of Sally & Don Lucas Artist Fellows Program at Montalvo Arts Center.
This month, I'll be working on a new project with Los Angeles based bassist and audio producer Cristy Michel on some dark magic in the form of a queer punk EP of music. We've written a few songs that we plan to record and create some new work in the process.
I'll also be working on my upcoming album/song cycle, that I'm calling Sand - formerly known as Camino Real - which is a sonic dream journal through the lens of the borderlands and heartache. I've realized so much about myself while working on this project, and it has taught me the valuable lessons of time as I've watched this project morph into something entirely different from my original intentions. I'm really excited to complete the next level of this piece out west.
My time at Montalvo has been a remarkable experience in my career as a musician-artist and composer. This residency has allowed me to work on a variety of projects and provided me with some amazing opportunities to which I'm very grateful. Many thanks and much love to all friends and supporters of my work. I'll be sharing more soon.
