"Now More than ever, Music needs to be more than flashy personas and Ego. It needs to be inspirational, moving, and focused on opening the hearts of the world to work as one in the face of injustice" His newest music is centered around this idea. To bring people together through music and sharing of the hearts vibration. "We are emotional beings having a human experience, and I have been trying to cut my ego out of it so that the true essence of our spirit can shine through this beautiful conduit that is music!"
