Blue Drag 06:34


Earlier this year, I had the privilege of playing at Hot Rhythm Holiday 2020, a swing dance festival that takes place in Austin, Texas. Little did I know that it would be the last time I played at a dance for a little while.

I decided to release this small collection of songs from that performance as a reminder of what we can look forward to in the future. The cover art shows the vibrant joy of looking out on a floor full of dancers. The tracks I selected capture what I feel to be the excitement of a live performance.

The songs are not perfect, but I think that's the beauty of a live recording. You can hear me yelling over the band to relay instructions. You can hear everyone taking spectacular musical risks. You can hear improvised arrangements called out two beats before they happen. And I'm so excited to share that because that's the kind of thing that only happens in the hectic, fast-paced, spontaneous world of the stage.

Whether you're a dancer or simply a live music lover, I hope that this EP can share a little glimpse of when we can dance and celebrate together again.
