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 »

I have to remind myself of this every day. Every day. Still glowing from last night's evening walk with my daughters. 
#discoverypark #seattle Father - daughters night. Grateful to be a Dad. Cherishing these days... It's one of those nights in Seattle. #sabbath #discoverypark SW1 area London. Must come back for more than a 2 hour walk. Hogwarts. Long live the Queen. Downtown Abbey. Bend it Like Beckham. Winter is coming. Brilliant.

In other words, London is quite beautiful.
