Watch now (57 secs) | I was rehearsing for tour and meant to capture a bit of me playing an old song for you, but then I started thinking about the world and war and what people do to each other versus what people are supposed to do for each other, and my voice trailed off because it felt, in that narrow moment, extremely stupid to be playing a song. I stopped my guitar and was taken by an inexplicable, frantic urge to loosen all my tuning pegs. I just kept turning and turning counter-clock wise, hopping from one peg to another. Then I slid the guitar down onto my lap because it absolutely felt like too much to keep holding it up.
Thank you for this. XO
I'm glad you have that outlet, Thao, the music. I find some strength in your words, and I find some solace in your music. I hope it helps you to know that you and your art bring a level of comfort to another person out there.
Thanks for all you do, Thao. Your generosity of spirit means so much to me, and doubtless to many others out there.
Sooooogood. Q: I’m heading to your show at Mercy Lounge (YAY) and have checked on the Covid policies etc., for the Cannery and ballrooms, however finding any updates on masks being required or encouraged, or “requested by headliner” is a a tad difficult to find (for example, The Ryman posts this info on their schedules etc).
Wondered if it’s at all possible for you to clarify or weigh-in? (I get this gets delicate out there. I’m pro live music, pro health, pro what keeps us all safe as possible.)
KEEP ROCKING STRONG. Your music is so baller, Thao. 💋 ☺️ 🙏
I hope you write a book someday ✨
