I’ve never seen a real stage dive. I’ve only seen them in the movies. It’s a ballsy test of the audience, and a literal leap of faith.
The closest thing I’ve ever done to that was this weekend, launching a pre-order for Sing for the East in hopes of funding the album up front. It feels like testing the love our friends have for our work, their willingness to give of themselves largely sight unseen, trusting our promise to deliver something they will enjoy.
Watching online as people have listened to the first two songs, and as people offer their support and pledge their faith in this project…
I feel as if I know now what it feels like when the audience catches and holds you safe and aloft. It was an amazing start to this phase of the project, and I’m deeply touched, humbled, and excited. Thank you.
