FROM THE ARTIST -
" Imagine a peaceful journey to a place where time and space are infinite and you are enveloped by a tranquil energy . . . this is my creative vision for Detaching the World, a CD series of meditative guitar music inspired by the wonder of nature which I hope helps you to 'detach' from worldly cares and concerns. Living on an island that is blanketed with snow in the winter and wildflowers in the summer keeps me attuned to nature, light and the seasons. Being here in such a wild and sublime coastal zone feeds my creative process. I try to craft an intricate, meditative sound with my guitars, inspired by a vision of light, love and connection to the universe."
