New Music Out NOW “Love Right Here” twenty feet down featuring Krista Richards

“Love Right Here” twenty feet down featuring Krista Richards


Released TODAY on No Definition Records!
And help us reach the top of the Dance Charts!!


For my brand new release LOVE RIGHT HERE I’ve teamed up Swiss based act TWENTY FEET DOWN on NO DEFINITION RECORDS. The project has made quite a bit of noise in the current music scene with their distinctive productions and epic arrangements.

Together we’ve created this uplifting nu-disco record that combines also modern house and future house elements.

The groovy remix comes from upcoming Egypt duo OMR & ADRY. These guys came up with a hot club interpretation pointing out the funky side of the track by adding crispy synth stabs, rockin’ guitar riffs, and spicy beat elements.



Every SINGLE download helps us reach the
TOP OF THE CHARTS!Thank you for your support!

I truly hope you enjoy this new song!  If you like it, please help me spread the word by SHARING on your Social Networks!  I’m so GRATEFUL for YOU!

The Fours Project

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in Blog, Music, News | 3 comments

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.

Download “Passion” HERE

krista-cover-passion-final medium

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…

Custom Songs – An Exclusive Offer for Fans & Supporters

Posted by on Oct 31, 2015 in Blog, News | 5 comments

Custom Songs – An Exclusive Offer for Fans & Supporters

Have you always wanted your very own song?  Maybe there’s a special person in your life that you’d like to give the gift of a song – just for them, or a song representing your shared love.   Or perhaps there’s a special occasion coming up that you’d like to make EXTRA special with a song written just for the occasion – a wedding, an anniversary, a proposal….

I have created a little space in my calendar to take on a handful of select custom songwriting clients.  I can only take one or two at a time so that I can provide the highest quality song, so this is a VERY exclusive offer.

It is NOT for everyone.

Songwriting requires a lot of time, energy, creativity, and money (to record).

Having your own custom song is like getting a star named after someone.  Not everyone has the extra money or even the desire to have a star named after someone.

If you’re that person who gets excited about the possibility of having your very own custom song, written just for you and or your special someone or special event…. and you’re ready to talk about making that a reality.

Please contact me HERE and we can set up a time to discuss YOUR SONG!

“Sending you LOVE through the sound-waves”
