My Tribute To Prince (video)

May 23, 2016, 8:55 AM · Prince embodied creativity. His fearlessness, soulfulness, versatility, and continual evolution have inspired me ever since I discovered his music as a teen in the 80's.

As a tribute, I covered his classic, "Sometimes It Snows In April", attempting to emulate his vocal performance on the album "Parade" and arranging/performing over 16 tracks of violin, octave violin, guitar and bass.
