Be Prepared to Be BLOWN.A.WAY…

In today’s Boston Globe, I happened to catch an article about this young (15 years old!) musician, looked him up on his MySpace page — and he’s now my new fave.

Sam Weiser, who started playing violin at age 3, has the most interesting and beautiful style, technically astonishing, with amazing phrasing. Three songs from his 1st CD are now being sold in pre-release. I await, with bated breath, the upcoming full release — Sam I Am (heh!) All proceeds from this CD go to The Daniel Pearl Foundation and FODFest, in memory of Daniel Pearl.

Watch his performance in August 2008 for the 2009 American String Teachers Association (ASTA) Awards — which he won. He’s only going to keep getting better and better…
