Allow – New live Video

What can you do with the feeling when you know there is something you wanted but can never have? The deep, hard things, that seem unjust… a sense of loss for what cannot be… Can you bury or set free desire?

Allow- live acoustic performance at The Dolphin in Port Washington NY 1/31/20

New Year, New Bright Lights Video

Last year Nate and Barbara celebrated New Year’s Eve with merriment and music, and a video for their song Bright Lights.  They decided to make this a tradition, and this year the lyrics are on screen. Bright Lights is a journey of love and change, reconciling our natural selves in the modern world, and leaping into your life even when you cannot see.

Happy New Year Friends. Thank you for being here.
