A switch flips and you do something unexpected. Before you know it, you’re on a journey of self-reflection. On a winding road of personal growth, confronting past versions of yourself.

How do we know what’s real anymore? When we’re surrounded by things such as AI, chatbots, and deepfakes – it’s disorienting. That’s on purpose, of course.

It’s available in all streaming platforms & Bandcamp.

A look back at my monthly residency in 2022. I didn’t know what I was doing when I started. But my instinct was: Get people in a room where there is art happening. I got a city arts grant, so I was able to 1) pay my featured artists, 2) support the venue, and 3) keep these free-to-all community events. In total, we put on 11 shows, and I got the privilege of playing with some of Boston’s best indie musicians.
