"I decided long ago to challenge myself with being blindly honest to myself about who I am in regard to deep feelings and issues. As I do this, I reach a point of truth inside. I know I can trust this place which is a place of sweet surrender and assuredness. My mind, body and emotions align with my spiritual nature. Inevitably, there comes this push to express from that place through writing songs and releasing them as albums to share with others."
