With these chaotic times we need music more than ever. It heals, empowers, connects and helps us purge our innermost emotions. We artists need to take extra steps to share our music with the people. I remember all the music throughout my life. I remember the songs that marked the good and bad bits in my life's history. It's those songs that I play when I want to remember. When I want to feel. When I want to reminisce. When I don't want to forget. Right now the world is going through a shift. It's the ever present, obvious turmoil that has a strangle hold on the masses. It's a time of awakening from the spoon fed ignorance we gorged ourselves on. Thankfully we are waking up as a society. Thankfully we are done eating the B.S.. Whatever it means, to whoever it's happening to isn't the main concern. It's where do we as individuals stand in this life. What will we do with our new found knowledge. We can't control the future but we can contribute to the present. We as artists can give some healing. We can offer minutes of escape from the chaos, or better yet some energy to the stagnant. It's a precious gift to be able to create a song to give to humanity. Don't take your gift of expression for granted. Don't be stingy with your talents. Share and uplift. Speak your truth. Continue the legacy of healing the great artists from the past gave us.
I never charge to perform on my own reservation. Sometimes I book shows here and they will offer me a bit for gas money. I happily accept, but the fact is I waive my performance fee always. I have heard of others that demand programs to give them money or they won't perform. Sometimes our programs or organizations can't afford to pay a fee. I even stepped in last year when the college students couldn't afford to pay another band the fee they wanted. The students were discouraged and wanted to give back to the community they live in. The students were putting on a spiritual walk to support the youth. I offered to perform for free and brought an amazing woman my lil sister Alas Nocturnas to perform for free also. The day was beautiful. The kids were very receptive and respectful. True kindness and true compassion are things you don't charge for, especially if its to empower our own Lakota youth. As musician and performer I have chosen to use my music as a platform to encourage and support my beautiful Lakota people.
I was honored to perform at this year's Black Hills Unity Concert. We so rocked the Paha Sapa! We had an incredible weekend. I'm honored to have shared the stage with so many talented Native Artists.
