When Erik first approached me about becoming a member of the Novacane Quartet in the summer of 2014, I will admit, I was hesitant. At the time I was living in Cincinnati, Ohio, and had just graduated with my master’s degree from CCM. Sammy, Erik, and Keith were all living in Bloomington, Indiana, minutes away from each other and the music school. I was living almost three hours away.
How was this ever going to work??? Would they get sick of me not being around all of the time to rehearse? Would I get tired of driving 110 miles from Cincinnati to Bloomington for every rehearsal? What about gigs and concerts? LOGISTICS.
