Dear Splintered Family,
As of January 8th, I will be stepping down as the piano player for Splintered Sunlight. January 7th, at Brownies 23 East, will be my last show as a permanent member of the band.
This decision was one of the hardest I've ever had to make, truly. My band mates are like brothers to me, and you all are sincerely my family. Over the past 8 years we have shared many magical, beautiful moments together. There are no ill feelings towards anyone in the band... quite the opposite. I will miss making music with them week after week, and I will certainly miss all of you.
There are a lot of wonderful musical opportunities that have been coming my way lately, and it became clear to me that I just can't do everything. I believe my decision to leave as a permanent member is the fair choice for everyone, especially so the band can maintain continuity.
I'm sure you will see me up on stage with the boys again...I won't be able to stay away for too long! Like I said, there are no hard feelings between anyone, and I will gladly play with them as needed.
I love you all, and will miss you very much...
