2021 – Year in Review

2021 was many things, boring wasn’t one of them!

I’m not great at reflecting on the year, so I made a little list of some accomplishments as this year felt extra special:

  • 13 premieres
  • 2 albums issued
  • 2 anthologies published
  • 12 radio and podcast appearances
  • 6 concerts
  • 4 festivals
  • 3 awards
  • 1 article
  • 450K+ streams!

Not bad for barely leaving home 🙂

May 2022 be all that you wish for and need. I’m preparing for some recordings, concerts (fingers crossed), and a surprise or two.

Thank you for being safe and sharing in my music.
