Thank You Dan Ashley!
First Official Performance at Lucile Packard
February 14th, 2019
I did my first performance under the auspices of Harmony & Healing at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford on Valentine’s Day, 2019. I realized the night before I left that none of the songs I was planning on performing at this CHILDREN’S hospital had been written within most of their patient’s lives! Thus I set about learning some newer songs. And so, a small handful of folks enjoyed live music including newer songs like “Perfect” and “Shallow” as well as older classics like “Summer of ’69” and of course a little Boston.
By the time the event was about to wrap up, people from the atrium and patients had begun to hear the music and the studio was packed by my final song. I met some amazing kids and some great parents too! Hope to be back again in April.
See you on the road!
Harmony & Healing Underway!
January 17th, 2019
Harmony & Healing has officially launched! I have applied for 501(c)(3) status for my new charity, and I am eagerly awaiting approval, which hopefully will be sometime in the summer of 2019. In the meantime, I have visited many Bay Area hospitals and received approval from four of them for Harmony & Healing performances, with hopefully more to come.
