It’s a very special thing to have the support of your community – to know there are people out there who believe in what you do and proudly stand behind your vision and work. It’s also an extraordinary thing to have that same support from amazing new music rock star heroes whose recordings you’ve grown up with and whose music has been a daily inspiration since you first held one of their albums. I feel incredibly fortunate to have such heroes the Kronos Quartet put their faith behind me and my creative journey.
