Low Tide (In Print)

for mezzo-soprano and piano

This setting has special meaning for me, both as a
father and as a personal friend of the poet. Anthony
Jesse and I share many fond memories from our
bohemian 20’s living in San Francisco. He studied
guitar at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, I
was a pianist taking a gap year before graduate
school. We shared a love of art, music, poetry, and
literature together in that magical time in one’s life
when anything and everything seemed possible. Now
that I have my own family with teenage children, there
is an added poignancy in setting this wonderful text
written by a dear friend on a subject I know all too well.
