The Gift of Bandmates

It’s possible that I have never been as excited as I am now to meet my bandmates from Isabel and The Whispers this summer. 

The subject of bandmates is an overlooked one in this world of solo-glorifying musicians. There’s precious little to be read about the topic online. However, each musician in my band is a hero to me on their instrument, regardless of the peculiarities of their individual personalities.  

I have done so many solo shows over the years that never before have I come to appreciate the gift of my bandmates as I have lately. 

Coming out of a rough year, a lot of thought, work and planning went into this reunion to get to this point, and it’s going to be amazing to reconnect with our musical synergy once again.

As a result of the past year, who has floated to the surface of your mind as important to your life, creative or otherwise? Could it be time to show them some renewed appreciation?
