We just released our first "single" from the new album and my debut as a videographer and video producer! I spent many hours putting this together, learning the ropes of video editing and how to sync everything with this track from our third album "Between the Rain." It's inspiring to see the vision of her efforts unfold. We filmed it partially on our Southwest tour last month and the rest on the porch at home and around the Santa Cruz mountains and coastline. We're really excited to share this song, written about our love for touring and the feeling of coming home wherever we are. If your internet is robust enough, watch it in HD quality for the best video and audio (it took about four hours to upload these four minutes of video!). Thank you to all the folks who continue to support us (and the arts in general!). Please share!

Please email me at if you have a violin, viola, fiddle, music biz, or practice related question you’d like answered in the blog or on a podcast, have a story or insight to share, or if you’d like to inquire about violin, viola, or fiddle lessons with me, in-person or online via Skype, FaceTime, or Zoom.

The Violin Geek Blog is a free resource and always will be. We also don't sell advertising, meaning that everything you read has been a labor of love. If you'd like to support my efforts and help ensure they continue, please consider making a donation. Thanks for your support!
