Almost two years ago today, I had my very first show where I got to experience the joy of playing my own tunes with other musicians.
I also had this half-baked idea that somehow became reality, asking people to write about places in their lives, and to hang them on a tree some friends and I set up with paper tags. From candid vulnerability to cheeky humor, what people had to share was kind of wondrous. Now, almost two years of shows and a self-produced EP later (with plenty of hilly journeying in between), my little treasure bowl of tags has grown and grown, and I finally get to share them with you.
I was so touched by the beauty of people that first night, coming back home from the show and reading each tag; somehow, that sense has only grown stronger with time, as I went through and photographed each one for this last album project. It is with a touched heart that I present to you the final #IAWIA video, bringing the EP ( i am (where ) i am ) to a close. Hope you guys find your tag somewhere in there, and hope you've found a bit of yourselves since the time you wrote them.
"There are still those rough moments in life, but hopefully together with music we can get through anything."
—Jesus @ 2:40
