Patrick Watson, Words in the Fire

Patrick Watson is a very special kind of human being and one of the best musicians and live performers around. I met Patrick in Montréal in 2004 through a dear friend, Thomas Csano. Another very talented artist. Out of all the cities I’ve been to or lived in, Montréal is up there at the top of the list. I filmed this video when he performed in Los Angeles.

If the book does not sell, several cubic meters of printed paper are left in the storeroom: it does not matter that much. The book has been completed, a small amount or lots of life has been set down on printed paper and the hope remains that the paper is good. Meanwhile, life has been lived. ”

Obviously difficult to make a reservation, as they only accommodated 8,000 dinners a season and received more than two million requests.
