Dear Reader, Where I come from is not as important as where I am right now. Or where I am going. To say what style of music I create is almost futile, because these things have changed. And will change. The fingerprint of my music is my voice. The style of my songs is not as much a genre, but personal statements of an emotional nature. Who I am as a person, and how I feel and translate things inside of me. I seek out sounds from all places. From distant countries and cultures, to things very near and close. The senses, memories, hopes, ideas, emotions. To create songs that are delicate as spider webs, and as strong as love. My first language is English. But lately I have been writing in Portuguese and Spanish. Or other languages. (some possibly newly created). The world is a vast and beautiful place, and I want to reach my hand out as far as it can go. To touch both sides of duality, and bring it together in the most terrible and beautiful chaos of one kiss. Thank you for being here.
