r&r diary – Comfort Food for the Soul – 11.25.18

Our band, whitewolfsonicprincess has had a string of excellent shows. Good music rooms. Exuberant audiences. The band has tightened and loosened. When we are in full-force, there are seven of us now. The musicians all really listen to each other, there is an extraordinary conversation going on. A tale told consisting of vibes, invisible waves.

Each show is different: the music, the room, the energy, everything is always morphing, growing. Pretty thrilling for all of us. We seem to be connecting with new folks at every show. We can’t ask for more than that, or, of course, we can and do, we feel we are just at the beginning of something pretty amazing. It’s a great feeling. Still, at the same time, we can’t take anything for granted. Every show really is a new beginning.

Anyway, last night, one of our good friends, an extraordinary musician and past collaborator came out to see us play. After the show he said to me that our band was “Comfort Food for the Soul.”

Comfort Food: “food that gives emotional comfort to the one eating it, these tend to be favorite foods of childhood, or linked to a person, place or time with which the food has a positive association.”

At first I was a bit taken aback, I thought, “Is that good?” Upon reflection, I’d say, yes, I hope it’s true. That would be a great and humbling mission: feeding souls with our music, one soul at a time. That’s the good work, for sure! – Jammer
