I recorded Tear Bright in mid 2020 for the Act4Music Festival, an international creative music festival, developed by composer and bassist Anthony Tidd, in response to Covid 19.

This is a composition inspired by what it is to experience clarity through a tear, the feeling of the bitter with the sweet, a knowing that has beauty accompanied with pain, or maybe beauty in spite of pain.
