"Meeting Purser was quite serendipitous," Hill says. "Chilly, rainy, Halloween night, open mic at a trendy coffee shop....Purser begins...the room fell silent. I was instantly mesmerized. 'Rainbow Connection,' the song was, and it was flawlessly, perfectly performed. Just Purser and their trusty ukulele sidekick....Not a dry eye in the house."
Hill dotes, "In my 33 years as a pro musician/producer/writer, I've not heard a better vocal, ever. If you're an artist, musician, writer, producer, find your way to Purser's gravity."
Shortly after meeting, Hill handed Purser one of his acoustic guitars with a single instruction: learn to play.
