the acoustic ninja & your favorite indie musician?

Quest had the joy of hosting the Acoustic Ninja – Trace Bundy – for couple of his songs yesterday.  If you’ve never heard his music, do yourself a favor and check him out.  He does things with the guitar that is unbelievable.  I first heard Trace when he played a show at Q Cafe several years ago.  Since then, I’ve been following his career from afar.  By chance, I emailed him to ask him if he’d be willing to stop by Quest the next time he was  in Seattle and he graciously obliged.  While I certainly appreciate his gifts as a guitarist, it’s the story behind his gifts and music that resonate with me.

Question:  Who’s an indie musician you’ve been enjoying and following?  Share their website if you’ve got it…

Trace has a show in Seattle at the Triple Door on March 5 for those who are interested.  My favorite is a song entitled ‘Missile Bell‘ which I couldn’t find on YouTube but it’s a beautiful redemptive story of a village in El Salvador that comes back to their war torn land with hopes of rebuilding their lives.  The first thing they do is to build a church.   As they near the completion of building a church with scraps and pieces of stuff, they realize they don’t have a bell for the church.   They eventually decide to use a missile shell for a bell for the church.  It’s a beautiful image of the possibility of redemption…

Another one that he played yesterday was ‘Long Song': Read the rest of this entry »

A breathtaking convergence of Mt. Rainier, Space Needle, Seattle skyline, and clouds.

As I soak in this view, lifting a prayer for the people of Nepal, and specifically the city of Kathmandu. Why, hello Seattle. You are truly beautiful. The great, bright wheel of Seattle. Home sweet home. Well, farewell Australia. You've been swell. G'day mate. But can't wait to come back to Seattle. Miss my family and church so much. Umm, so Melbourne takes their street art/tagging/graffiti pretty seriously. Blocks after blocks.
