Hope you’re well.
I’m very sorry for the loss of your friend: you have my heartfelt condolences during this difficult time. I didn’t know Ede Wright but I’m sure he was a great person, as you touchingly described in your blog.
I’ll finally be back touring after a few setbacks: first an injured shoulder, then I had a bike accident on October 8th, just before a European tour, in which I broke 8 ribs! Very, very, painful.
I’ll tour with the California Guitar Trio, playing my solo project “Simple Music for Difficult People”. I will also join them during the last part of the show.
I really hope there is one near you, as I would love to meet you again.
I would like to share with you my new composition from the album “Simple Music for Difficult People Vol.4”.
I think this song expresses both love and melancholy. For this reason, I titled it “Kanashimi”, which in Japanese usually means sadness. However, if Kanashimi is written 愛しみ instead of 哀しみ, it means love.
Everything is played in real time!
I’ll be touring the West Coast this July, but I’ll be on the East Coast this winter: I hope to be able to meet you again!
