New Music on the Way
During the last few months, I have started recording the first few songs; ‘Praying for Love (War is Over)’ a heart centered anti-war protest song & ‘Promised Land’ a song about the beauty of this earth we live on and creating together ‘the promised land’ that we all know in our hearts is possible.  I feel so inspired by these songs and the music that is coming through and the songs sound great and are almost finished. They will be the first few releases from the next album. So far I have been covering the recording myself, but I am asking for help from my music fans to help finish the current songs and create even more healing and inspiring music. Rather than do a lengthy fundraiser or use a site that takes a percentage of the money raised , in this first round, I am asking for support directly from our fans and supporters who have already been moved by the music in some way. I want to create this music in the most organic and grassroots way possible, reaching out to the fans and supporters out there and having you all be a part of the process.

So I have come up with some inspiring and creative ways for people to be a part of making the music and sharing that process with them.

You can listen to short clips of a few of the songs we are working on at the bottom of this page…



New Music Vision + Song Creation + Albums

New Songs
Over the last 3 to 4 years, I have been writing lots of songs, reflections on life and healing,  hopes, dreams and prayers for our world. As an artist, this has been the deepest part of my own process really bringing out into words, music and sound, what I have been feeling in my soul. So far everyone I have shared the music with has been inspired by it and I hope to share it with more of you over the months ahead. Many of the new songs are in English, sourced from the same spirit and energy the created 10,000 Suns.

Mantra Music
I have spent the last 30 years chanting Mantras and that continues to be a main part of my practice, so some of the new music i have been composing is in mantra, chant form. I am also planning to record these and release them along the way.

Fan Based Crowd Funding for Creating Music & Art
Creating, recording and releasing music requires a big investment in money, time and energy. It is well worth the endeavor, but often the hard part for most artists is raising enough funds to truly create the music or art in the right way and then being able to fund the process of sharing it with the world. The costs associated with creating music i.e. studio time, musicians, engineers, production, mixing, mastering, promotion and sales are quite high. In the old days it was the record companies that funded albums and took the lion share of the profits. With the musical revolution of these last 20+ years, it has become in many ways easier to record music at home with all of the amazing technology but artists often find themselves needing to do it all including the creating of the music, promotion, sales, management etc. So with the advent of crowdfunding artists have been able to reach out directly to their supporters and their supporters play a huge role in creating of new music.

In this case, your donations and support will go directly to helping create the music. Paying for studio time, musicians and all facets of the creation promotion and distribution of the music. Essentially helping to create it and get it out into the world. So I have created a way for anybody that wants to support on any level to be able to do that from simple listening of the music online that already exists to funding the creation of new new music at any level. And then doing it we have created some wonderful ways for those that wish to engage in the process with us.

10,000 Suns
My first album ’10,000 Suns’ was a completion of a circle, after growing up in the music business, leaving that world to travel to the East to learn about yoga and meditation  and then returning  home again to the music of chant and sacred mantras the album was a merging of these two worlds for me. ’10,000 Suns’ was a labor of love , also crowd funded ( thank you to everyone who helped us create the music!) We recorded the album over 2 and half years and there were so many wonderful and talented musicians that were a part of the project. The album had some wonderful success, it went to number three on the iTunes world music charts for a short time and 2 of the sings got to #3 on the world music song charts. The iTunes Charts are mostly based on sales so it is really just about how many people are buying the songs or listening to them at that moment. One of the most amazing things that come out of it for me is connecting with an audience around the world and receiving so many messages of people who have found the album very healing and inspiring for them. Music has a great power to unite, to heal and to awaken us.
