Never Records at BAM marked the 10th Anniversary of a project that has taken me from the Mississippi to the River Jordan and back to the Missouri River. The heartfelt enthusiasm, joy, and grace of all who participated during the BAM exhibition has made me fall in love with the city yet again. Never Records is regenerative in this way, my love letter to the world which loves back tenfold. New York is still the city of our dreams. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the project, I’ve collaborated with BAM to feature 13 of the 65 total performances that capture the spirit of the exhibition which took place from January 15 - March 13, 2020. All of the sessions were magical. Perhaps one day you will be able to hear and see them all.
