SIGHT & SOUND

I've had the honor to work with some wonderfully creative storytellers, videographers, and sound technicians. I love the art form of bringing audio to life by pairing it with the visual realm while telling a compelling story. Enjoy this collection I've put together. You can find more videos on my YouTube channel. 

Shows

Experience The Magic In Person!

Music moves me to my core. It inspires me, takes me to the deepest parts of myself, picks me up when I'm down, and moves me on an emotional level that nothing else can. It is the voice of my spirit, my essence, my soul. What really lights me up is being fully alive and engaged in the present moment taking risks and following my intuition for the sake of love and joy and beauty. It's a spiritual experience. This is what playing music is for me and what you can expect to experience when you come to one of my shows. I hope to share this experience with you someday soon.

The OBC Wine Project started as a passion project by the wine enthusiasts at Odell Brewing Co. We kept the word “project” in the name because we’re continuously learning and evolving. We are in pursuit of uniquely balanced flavors that showcase what a little beer-geek-turned-wine geek creativity can do. Unbound by geography, agriculture, or imagination, The OBC Wine Project is our fresh take on a centuries-old tradition. Join us on our outdoor patio for Live Music Thursdays Every Thursday 5-7 pm. Free to the public.

Tune Up with Brian McRae & Dechen Hawk

feat. Dan Hochman from the Wrecking Room Stage

Watch the behind-the-scenes process of taking a song from its simplest form to a finished studio recording. This is “Tune Up" a live stream show with Brian McRae & Dechen Hawk featuring Dan Hochman. Watch as I produce and record one of Dan Hochman’s new unreleased songs, "Distance", live with the help of Brian McRae on drums, Jesse Hunter on guitar, Philip Lotterhos on keys, and Connor Groscurth on bass. I had such a blast making this video and transforming Dan's song. I hope you enjoy watching the process as much as I enjoyed creating it.

About

Like Stevie Wonder and Jeff Buckley thrown in a blender, Indie Soul Balladeer Dechen Hawk creates music that ranges from beautiful ballads to gritty throwback funk and soul. He believes conscious music has the power to heal and transform humanity for the better. Hawk's call pierces the state of unawareness and asks you to speak the truth. 

Though musical his whole life, it wasn’t until the death of his father when he was 14, and the search for a way to express that loss, that Hawk found his calling as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His desire to create and express the joy and fragility of life has kept him busy for the past 25 years performing locally and internationally. 

His work creates community by bringing people together from all walks of life to do something they all have in common and enjoy.
