“There is something deep and transcendent within music-- it can be meditative and transportational. Those highly personal moments you have while making music are what ultimately make it worth doing. ”
But as my journey progressed, it became clear to me that my love for guitar playing wasn’t just a superficial one. It translated into creating sound forms, writing songs, and communicating to others through an exciting form of auditory art.
Frequenting more and more drum circles and working out the kinks in my voice through random Kirtan classes (yogic chanting) and later some more formal voicework, rhythm and voice found a stronger hold into the music I was creating. I’ve since added more forms of instrumentation, like the slide guitar, banjo, mandolin and wind flute.
Nowadays, I like to reconsider my relationship to my guitar; considering it much like an artist would to a paintbrush or piece of charcoal– the guitar is a medium; an extension.
And it happens to be my personal favorite medium of communicating emotionality and those deeply personal moments of growth that are universal to all of us. There’s a transcendence within music, and it’s an art that can be so powerful in communicating introspectively and interpersonally.
I am a Massachusetts native and feel a strong connection to my New England roots. Currently, I am based out of the Chicago area where I am deepening my spiritual studies while exploring the avenues as an independent musical artist. I've got an EP and a full length under my belt; recorded out here in Chicago in 2015 and 2016 respectively. My third release, "Sagitta" will debut in September 2017.
Much Love & see you out there!
