I Want to Rise like a Hummingbird

Hummingbirds are one of the smallest birds in the world (on average, they weigh less than a nickel). Yet,

the distinct humming of their wings — their exploration through and of the world — is enough to captivate (and actually termed their name).

And, with or without rain, they are the only bird that can fly forward, backward, upward and downward.

My upcoming album is titled “Hummingbird”. Beginning this summer, it will release in four separate installments, combining to create a narrative that (1) showcases music as story, while also (2) seeing song as a throughway to greater meaning and connection.
When you’re flying, the sky’s not the limit.
