In May & June, 2013, it was a thrill to get to play harp on the hit TV show THE VOICE, first accompanying the amazing vocalist Sarah Simmons, and working alongside several of the best musicians in LA.  (Hard-working band director Paul Mirkovich and company arrange all those songs every week, rehearse with the singers behind the scenes, and perform on the shows!)
In May, "Somebody That I Used to Know" with Sarah: since I didn't need to change any pedals during the song, I decided to play standing up so I could groove with the beat. 

Here are some screen shots:

Then in June I came back to accompany the stunning Sasha Allen in "I Will Always Love You".
