:BROTHERS OF MEDICINE:
This is one of the pinnacle points in my life. When true meaning illuminated of why I started my journey. About a year and a half ago, I advocated for foster kids nationally in front of hundreds of people including caseworkers, foster kids, and carers. The room swelled up with emotion as I told them what I had learnt of my travels, the words that were told to me that I was never alone, there is family all around me to open my heart and eyes and see the support that truly matters. As I played songs to a crowd full of pure feeling, we all celebrated together in tears of joy. The day after I sang on stage with near 30 foster kids with a song we wrote during the weekend about strength. Before the performance, my brother brought out the sage as we set our intention and as I saw these kids shining on stage my heart sang into me this is what life is about… I saw their eyes sparkling with pure joy and innocence. No limitations, I was surrounded by angels singing on stage with me. and this is what inspired my life.
It broke away all the fluff. to focus my energy onto how to bring as much integrity in my music as possible. To translate it as honest as I can from my heart! And to never care for what people think, there is always perspective and I write my music for me. The music industry tries to carve musicians to sound like this and sound like that. But the truth is, musicians got to write the music that comes so passionately from their heart.
Music is a purpose, not a business.
And this year i’m looking to record a heap of stuff, but integrity is the aim, because sometimes you got be wreckless with your music. Burn through any judgement and perspective that doesn’t support your vision of passion, build the kingdom with golden bricks and ones that don’t frey…. Because i’m not here to make fashion, I’m here to sing the songs I was born to sing.
