« One of my most memorable moments as a performer was during a solo set at The Way Station in Brooklyn. I couldn’t have hoped for a warmer audience; everyone was welcoming, attentive, and responsive to my songs. At the end of the show, I decided to play a song called « Grande », which I had written as an homage to my deceased grandfather. After talking to them more about the tune, and about how my grandpa was such an inspiring figure of my childhood, I mentioned that they could sing along during the refrain, but only if they wanted to, no pressure. After singing the first verse, everyone in the room started singing along. It’s not the first time that it happened, but this time, it was completely different. Something clicked, at that specific moment in time, and all of our hearts were unified, we were all singing without any inhibition. Our chant grew, and grew, and grew, to the point where people were all shouting, clinking glasses, singing harmonies, you name it…

That night, they gave me something that touched my inner self in a way that is beyond what I can comprehend as a rational human being. It was by far one of the most beautiful moment I’ve ever experienced as a professional performer. »
