2019 is a year of new beginnings.  My first studio cover (of Fleetwood Mac's "Gypsy") comes out January 22nd.  I took this opportunity to blend folk rock arrangements with EDM in order to take the listener on a journey.  The eponymous gypsy travels from desert byways haunted by hand percussion to the dark funk of urban dance floors and then back to the peace and endless skies of the desert.

Since I was a child, "Gypsy" has been one of my favorite songs.  The lines, "I have no fear / I have only love" often come to mind whenever I face challenges.  In these lines, Steve Nicks encapsulates the deep truth that for the human animal, there are really only two emotions:  love and fear.  Whichever emotion we choose to allow to dominate sets the tone for everything we manifest.

I invite you... take my hand, pass through the fear, step into love and reclaim your power!
