Just within the past two days I have had conversations with several people from various sectors of the musical world on the subject of generic music composition and performance. Then last night I heard an informal performance by an accomplished musician; during a 45 minute set there was one song that conveyed convincing personal involvement. While grateful for that song I wonder what happens to that singer the rest of the time?

I am fascinated by vulnerability in the voice and in instrumental playing convinced that it is what makes some music truly great as opposed to routine.
