Dear Lovers of Music & Art,

~ AMBIENT ONE ~
Ambient One, you dance in my dreams
Pouring curl after sway over the headland hills
diaphanous dreams disappearing
at the mouth of the rainbow tunnel
Ambient One, you have awakened me
i was asleep for too long
my nest became thick
light faded in a slow tomb
you did not break the walls
you simply lifted me
through the opening i could not see
Ambient One you inspire me
yesterday a nomad leaf flew into the house
landed on the 5th string of my guitar
my guitar there, in that chair
fallen from the tree
rambling through the sky
5th string struck
a tone rang
re-sounding in this cabin
a note no one played
a love note
Ambient One, I feel you
you are in all things
pictures on a restaurant wall
the scent of basil
the mystery of sound
a long gaze from a passing child
you are hiding
right in front of me

:: INSPIRATIONS ::
Recently a friend pointed me in the direction of the song "Re: Stacks" by Bon Iver. While I had listened to the song, and adored the melody, I had never truly listened to the lyrics. Upon listening, my mind flew out of my skull, and my heart escaped from my ribcage. I gathered them up again and knew I was a larger person with this genius piece of music in my system. With all of that in place, I decided to give back to the song. I don't know much about the technical side pf making a video, but I know a ton about being inspired, designing and making things happen. This is not a professional piece. This has nothing to do with publicity. This is an offering to a song that shook my world.
I hope you enjoy it. Thank you Bon Iver.

:: MUSIC ::
Earlier this year I released the single "The Yew Tree", and toured behind the release in the UK. This was a wonderful tour, and an enchanting song to cover.
Since the release of "The Yew Tree", I have been writing for a new recording.
Across the board my inspiration is on HIGH.
I am working in many platforms simultaneously.
I will keep you informed regarding any upcoming performances.
Thank you for engaging and supporting my work, and the arts in general.
That is all for now good people.
Shine through the storm,
