As restrictions lift and strange little social distancing gigs begin to loom on the horizon I find myself feeling a mixture of indifference and trepidation. Ive done 1 or 2 social distancing shows, as well as a couple of online streaming gigs – they were cool I suppose but they also felt a bit like 2% milk, and reminded me of how great it actually is to play to a properly filled room to real flesh and blood people. I miss that. The trepidation comes from the thought that this could go on for a long time yet. The challenge is to adjust to this new reality. Im doing the best I can under the circumstances – everyone is. In the meantime, I count myself among the lucky souls who hasnt yet lost anybody (touch wood!) and who lives in a country where people actually have space in their blessed and privelidged lives to even contemplate music, art etc let alone create it. You gotta stop and think about that sometimes. It put things into perspective. In the meantime, here is a cool little video of a song of mine with footage of my daughter growing up in these times.
