My friend Lindsey Smith-Trostle has passed.
And she passed a couple of months ago. The algorithm has failed me yet again. Because I missed the posts. But also, we had been so relentlessly pursuing our separate things that we’ve fallen out of regular touch. I always call it “getting Nashville’d”. So I just found out that she died.
I met her through playing in Swap Meet Symphony. Some of you know that my DJ project Quiet Entertainer sometime performs as the Quiet Entertainer Orchestra. In those early shows, Lindsey played cello for me. She was a very in-demand cello player; working with some area symphonies and also Yelawolf. In demand to the point that eventually she wasn’t able to keep working with me.
We never got to really record any of our work. However one of my favorite moments as an artist happened 5 years ago last week, when the Nashville Symphony reached out to me and asked the Quiet Entertainer Orchestra to play their free day of music. So I’m going to put that video below.
I don’t know what to say. I hate losing touch with people. But not as much as I hate losing people. Let your people know how much you mean to them. Especially your creative friends and your artist friends.
