What does it mean to you to be a member of VOICES?
It means being part of something bigger than myself… A group seeking to make the world a better place through the music we create. Singing powerful music is one of the most spiritual things I have ever done. It also means love and support without conditions; a chosen family, with bonds that are beyond blood.
What do you look forward to the most as businesses start opening up again?
Hard to say, really…. I work in a prison so I have continued to work throughout, although I work from home 3 days per week. It was certainly nice to be able to get my hair cut again… But I worry about the continuing health threat of the virus, and that too many people are not taking precautions to help keep everyone safe until there is a vaccine and/or treatments available.
Do you have a song(s) that you turn to during times of uncertainty
Hard to ID any one song that I turn to… But music in general is something I surround myself with to make me feel better when things are tough… Whether it’s sad songs to soak in the melancholy for a while, or more upbeat positive tunes to boost my spirits…
Tell us one thing most people may not know about you.
I am mostly an open book, I’m not much for secrets, and pretty open about myself… I think, though, that many people see me as much more confident than I really am. I worry a lot, and often anxious about things. I just don’t tend to show it on the surface.
