Positive & Meaningful Folk Rock - Authenticity @ Mindfulness @ Compassion
NOTES
I strive to be authentic, mindful and compassionate with creativity and integrity @ I have a strong sense of purpose to make a lasting positive difference in this world @ My music serves as a conduit through which information, wisdom and ideas flow @ I acknowledge that I am not the creator of this knowledge nor do I present the perfect example of how to live by it @ I am on my journey too @ I can admit from the start that I have flaws @ I don't have all the answers and I'm far from enlightened, but, like everyone, I have strengths to share @ I honour my privileged, wealthy, educated and loved position by helping those in need @ I oscillate between focus and free exploration, and between getting it right and learning from mistakes @ I help when I have the strength and will need help in times of weakness @ I appreciate the good that I do in this world @ I commit to growing my capacity to make a difference whilst maintaining healthy balance.

This album has been many years in the making @ Some of the songs were written more than a decade ago @ Officially Single and Right Now Right Here appeared on my first EP back in 2006 @ Other songs such as Every Setting Sun and Active Peace were written just this year in 2015 @ I hope this collection of songs enhances your life as they have enhanced mine @ I am ever grateful to my friend and mentor, Heather Frahn for her guidance, encouragement and amazing music production skills @ It was a pleasure to work with the tenacious, dedicated and talented recording engineer, Anthony Stewart at Red Brick Music @ To collaborate with wonderful musicians who contributed so generously and skilfully to these recordings was a fantastic experience @ Gratitude to my friends and family for their support and inspiration @ Blessings to you for listening and sharing in my musical journey.
