Friends of Cahoots,
Letters To A Head Above Water is a token of gratitude to our family of artists and audience members who have not only faced incredible challenges during the pandemic, but who have continued to show resilience and compassion throughout. It is the conclusion of our 'RAFT' autumn slate and our final offering for 2021.
Lisa and I are deeply appreciative of the communities that make Cahoots what it is. YOU are the heads above water. The ones confronting and riding the waves, resurfacing over and over and over again regards of the strength of the current. I had a simple idea. I decided to wade through hundreds of old demos of mine and choose a few whose words still resonate or have new meaning in the context of now. (Click on each individual song title for its lyrics.)
This is NOT an album or a professional recording. It is a collection of thoughts assembled into a playlist. These songs were all inspired by specific moments in time between 2002 and 2015, but have a timely relevance when listened to through the lens of today. As artistic director of Cahoots, I have to talk a lot and write a lot. There is still no form of communication, however, that feels more natural to me than this one. So this is for you, our beautiful supporters, who have kept my head above water too.
Peace, Passion, & Progress,
