A song cycle inspired by my life changing experiences with my teacher, Mark Pearson. Featuring guitar, viola, drums, and voice.
Hello there! Welcome to The KickStarter Campaign for the album My Teacher. This song-cycle is inspired by my experiences with one of the greatest teachers I know, Mark Pearson. Last April, I was lucky enough to help Mark, 83 years old, survive, when I discovered him alone in his apartment after multiple strokes and a heart attack. During the next few months I visited him each day at Mass General Hospital, to sing with him, and to be by his side as he recovered. Even after a two-week coma, Mark survived. He now lives in an assisted living facility outside of Boston,MA.
Throughout these events, I had a few melodies flowing in and out of my head. This song-cycle is made of those melodies. The melodies I sang at his bedside while he awoke from his coma, the melodies that got us both through the toughest and darkest of times. My Teacher centers around faith, spirituality, the awe-inspiring nature of the universe, and what it means to truly live, to truly care, and to truly love.
Recording will be done at Northeastern University, with the following ensemble:
Todd Siff- Guitar and Vocals, Alexandra Gyarfas- Vocals, Felipe Gaviria- Producer and Drummer, and Kiara Ana- Viola.
My Teacher will be approximately 20 to 25 minutes in length and will be recorded live on April 7th. The next evening, April 8th, at 8:00 pm, the band will perform a live version of My Teacher at Club Church in Boston, MA. Tickets are on sale now for only $7.00.
The funds will be used to cover recording costs, musician fees, and duplication.
