Debut Original Album - LONESOME GOLDMINE
"My album of original music entitled Lonesome Goldmine with producer Mark Kuykendall at Unknown Tone Studio. The sound is ambient and cinematic. It's designed to mine the depths of the listeners inner world where innumerable surprises are waiting and hoping to be discovered. In a place and time so full of sensory stimuli, It's becoming more and more challenging to digest all we're experiencing from day to day. With so much imagery, drama, entertainment and so many voices telling us who we are and what we value, it takes a conscious effort to make sure the quiet inner voice isn't swallowed up and lost completely. My intension for this work is to create a musical guide who will take you by the hand and walk with you into the darkest, most beautiful places of your being, who will sit with you in love through all the pain and wonder of self exploration, self discovery and self acceptance. There is a lonesome goldmine inside which holds unfathomable wisdom, power and love."
