TEDx with TraceyTEDxEncinitas Transparent (1)(4)

Thank you so much TEDx Encinitas for having us come perform “Don’t Be Scared to Try”at this year’s TEDx Encinitas event.  We had so much fun!!  See the video here.  They asked us to play the song in honor of the theme for the event, which is basically to just jump in with regard to life, i.e. be courageous and take action to make great things happen. Our song has a similar message (listen here:  So many amazing speakers and other acts were there too, so inspiring.
