The Fours Project

The Fours Project

A year ago I embarked

on a journey of LOVE…

through MUSIC…

I set out to create a series

that would each touch

on a different aspect

of the human experience of LOVE

“Passion” is the first in a series of four EPs (“extended play” a set of songs greater than a single but less than a full length album).

I chose “Passion”, because it is such a compelling human emotion and is the source of so much expression… we begin this human experience with passion – our very existence is sourced from our parent’s passion for one another!  And… hopefully, it is the spark that begins our journey of LOVE.

My intention is to invite you to take this journey with me.  To really feel into each aspect of love represented in each song.  To search your heart and soul and uncover the mysteries and emotions that may be hidden there.  To heal, and restore that which requires it.  And ultimately to set yourself free, to love without hindrance, with a purity that only comes through the refiners fire.

Each release will have three original songs, one original spoken word piece, and one original song featuring my partner in rhyme Kiyoshi Shelton, who is a phenomenal conscious hip-hop artist – for a total of 5 tracks.  Each one will also feature a visionary artist for the cover art.

The Four Project EPs:

Passion” EP (released May 9th 2014 through the support of friends and fans through crowd-sourcing) – explores the human experience of love and desire. It celebrates those precious moments of joy, romance, and the powerful reflection of the other.  Passion features visionary art by Jesse NoeMind.  I had the support of some really talented people.  Musical contributions and features: DTO, Kiyoshi Shelton, Domonic Estes, Christine Cyr, Boolean, Steve Russell, Nathan Richards, and Grammy nominated Sten Hallstrom aka Stonebridge.  Production engineering and mastering: DTO, Makii, & Antonio Aguilera & Alan Guzman @ Studio 47.

Broken” EP (currently in production) – highlights our experience of loss in love and the shadow emotions that accompany heartache, along with the hope we ignite in it’s wake.

Dream” EP (TBD) – reveals our amazing ability for rebirth and to rediscover and invent for ourselves what love truly is – is it a fantasy? Is it real? Made up? Divine? We choose.

…and lastly

Awake” EP  (TBD) – blasts our heart and soul open to the awareness of our Oneness and the LOVE that we posses and embody at the core level – totally whole and complete within ourselves with the infinite capacity to love others from this space. :)

It’s been almost a year since the first EP was released.  We had hoped to generate enough funds with the crowd-sourcing campaign to record all four EPs, but we only had enough for one.  So, I’ve been touring and generating income on my own in order to keep the journey flowing.  Now, I’m prepared to release the second EP in the series.

With a recent heartbreak of my own, it seems fitting to pour my heart and soul into creating the next EP in The Fours Project series, “Broken”.  Many of you have already begun this journey with me and listen to “Passion” regularly.  I hope you will continue with me as we dive into the shadow and feel the emotions around loss and heartache.

Thank you for staying connected with me and helping me share my music.

Stay tuned…

Keep your vibrations high…
And know that I’m sending you love through the sound waves…
