New album "STARSEEDS" to be released October 2017
I'm not going get all hippie-dippy on you, but the way I see it songs are starseeds. A starseed is an individual who exists here on earth from another dimension to help others, and regardless of whether or not individuals exist in this way, I'm convinced that most of the songs come from an inexplicable place and time. They come with intention, appearing with a purpose to love and heal and to make the ultimate human connection. Our nation and the world needs that kind of love, healing, and connection more now than ever.
We're rounding the bend with the new recording, adding harmonies and a few overdubs at this point before mixing. We're looking forward to getting it out to you in the fall. In the meantime, I'll be performing a few dates in CT, NY, and MA over the next few months and look forward to seeing you soon.
Love and light ...
