My Mission

Music has always been a source of healing and inspiration for me. From homeless to happiness, my lyrics helped me shatter depression and learn to know what love is. My hope is that anyone who is struggling in darkness seeking to know their light might be helped by witnessing what I have gone through. I want my music and content to be about the people I meet, with their challenges and real life solutions, along with the universal principles that will make our world a better place.

What did we lose when the West was won? I am sitting here today thinking of progress. Of the Amazon. Of our fascination with technology. With our lack of interest in our humanity. Can we call it progress if we are less happy? If we are in a hurry with no purpose but speed? We are obsessed with “hacks” to save time every second - but don’t make us more fulfilled. We are more anxious and more depressed as a nation. Is this progress? As animals, we are designed to enjoy convenience - but as we have evolved, we must look at this desire and see if it is truly bettering our lives. Our desire for Convenience has encouraged commerce to loose its conscience, as it rushes to meet the desires of a consumer who has generationally lost its relationship to Mother Earth. How can we value who and what we have no relationship with? How can you value water when you have never hauled it out of a stream in buckets and felt your legs burn as you carried it to a garden or a fire to heat? Indigenous knowledge is one of the most valuable assets our world has. Indigenous people hold wisdom that has sustained our earth and spirituality for thousands of years- please support these intelligent and beautiful people as they are uniquely suited to care for their lands, like the Amazon. Like Hawaii. A return to ancient wisdom is needed as we hurry forward with AI that may not make us healthier or happier or sustain our planet. A return of matriarchal balance in a world of false power grabs is needed to restore harmony. Please do small and big things. Bring your own container to @starbucks. Bring your own grocery bags to shop. Put pressure on companies to have less packaging. Support charities that support indigenous culture and ways. Support and be curious about indigenous culture. Why do we need to rush to space when we still know so little of the wonders here? Space is sexy, but have our Brightest and wealthiest given up on our earth? I am donating to @rainforestalliance . Locally I support @adoptanativeelderofficial And learn about the importance of sacred lands like @protectbearsears . Follow activists like @paulnicklen. Buy upcycled clothing from places like @orendatribe.
