Thinking About Zoë Keating Today

I am very sad to learn today that Zoë Keating’s husband, Jeff, lost his fight with cancer three days ago.  My thoughts are with Zoë and her son.

I have never met Zoë Keating, though in my work advocating for the rights of artists, I have met several people who do know her, and of course, I have become familiar with her words and with her incredible music.   More than once, she has humbly tried to remind people that musicians like her are just regular working folks, dealing with the same assortment of life’s ordinary, and sometimes extraordinary, challenges.  Though I do feel compelled to say that one difference is that the way so many of us are able to endure, overcome, and understand life’s challenges is thanks to musicians like Zoë.
