“Audacious, compelling and hugely imaginative!”
~Leo Stutzin, Huffington Post

As the queer son of Chinese immigrants in America, I search for ways music connects people with the places they call home. Raised in Seattle, I currently live where the trees and waterways retain power alongside digital technology. This informs my songs of dislocation created to honor the ritual of people who gather to listen.
