    I was very young when I started performing professionally with an all-male band (The Incredible Mindfunk) in bars and clubs late at night. Most parents would not be comfortable with that but mine were very supportive, and would show up for almost every performance, full of pride. They supported me even when I wanted to go to Boston, instead of being fearful that I did not have ‘a safety net’ of an academic degree to fall back on if music as a career did not work out. They trusted me and my decisions.”
