City of Austin Street Performer

When Austin’s Music and Entertainment Division launched a pilot program to pay musicians to be street performers, I applied. I got an email a month ago and today made $150 for playing an hour set at 500 W. 2nd St.

Luckily there was a little shade tree I could stand beneath and a breeze to keep me from sweltering. It turned out to be a lovely hour where I tested out my new busking rig (a Roland Street Cube) and streamed it via Facebook Live. I start singing at about 2:10.

Thank you, Austin!

Outside Voice, Saturday Songs

I’ve been looking for an opportunity to be part of Outside Voice – Art TV, so I’m happy to have kicked off the collaboration on Saturday with Ron Pippin’s ever-resourceful, ongoing, family-art project. I entertained the troops at Creative Reuse day singing singalong songs to the kids and parents busy with all sorts of projects as part of their open-house for the West Austin Studio Tour.

Here’s robot Ron, a cardboard kid cyborg, and they dome they were working on while I was singing.

MANTRAS Update, Apr. 2018

Here is the state of the album as of April 3: Six songs close to being done and two sketches at the end. I’m psyched to have a draft of the artwork with a little cartoon me meditating my mantras.
