Kat McDowell & Show Info!


A few weeks ago, Kat and I finally had our schedules align, 
and we took a few hours on a warm, sunny afternoon for a photoshoot and some guitar playing.


 It's been quite a while since Kat and I last met up. 
We first met in person back in 2009, just a few weeks after I first landed in Tokyo, I believe. I was walking through the streets of Shibuya, and I caught a glimpse of someone walking along with a guitar case.. and I thought it might be her. So taking a chance, I sent her a message afterwards on Myspace. (Ah, the ol' Myspace days.) 
And she replied!
Some days later, I found myself sitting on the grass at Yoyogi Park near sunset, talking with her.



 Some things I find most inspiring about Kat are her spirit, her honesty, and her motivation in life.
She's a beautiful girl with a beautiful soul.


 It's so easy to waver from indecision, failure, loss of faith...
but I feel really admire Kat's strong sense of purpose.


Even when we're hit by days of nagging worry and continuing doubt, 
loss of confidence in ourselves and loss of trust in others...

What if we could still remember to be only ourselves,
pursue the things we're passionate about,
and give love and thanks to the people who have been there for us?


It's okay to look down, to fall, and fall deeply.
But just remember to look up again.

 Check out Kat's official website, her blog, and her Youtube channel.

Also, Kat very kindly invited me to play in a Tokyo show next month!
Please mark your calendars if you're free to come see both of us perform :)
We will each be playing a set of about 30-45 minutes, and we would love to meet you there in person!
