The purpose behind my music is threefold:

The first one is to provide a space where men can be vulnerable with each other. One of the most powerful prayers one can pray on someone else is ‘I Love You’. Yet, it is a prayer that has become a sign of weakness in the male community, especially when it has to be expressed between two males, be it a father/son relationship, a friendship, a business relationship, or even a gay relationship for that matter. I’d like to offer my music to other males as an encouragement to be vulnerable with each other. There’s one instance in my entire life when I said and actually meant ‘I Love You’ to another male. I can guarantee you that there’s so much power on the other side of that prayer, so much so that both the giver and the recipient of that prayer are exponentially transformed. Do not let that power pass you by.

The second one is to celebrate powerful women in our society. We are living through incredible times. It’s a joy to see how far women have come and how much they have yet to achieve. It’s a fact that I wouldn’t be the man I am today if it weren’t for all the women in my life. I want to acknowledge and support you with my music in every way a man can. I look forward to experiencing the promised land with you.

The third one is to empower gay people all over the world. As part of the gay community, I know first hand what the journey is to get to the point where you give yourself permission to thrive. I denied myself for so long that I had to work even harder to accept myself. Today, I want my thriving and my music to give permission to gay people all over to stop fitting in and start excelling. None of us came into this world, gay or otherwise, to fit in. Conformity is the biggest lie ever sold. Live, thrive, create your life and give them ‘something to talk about’ as Bonnie Raitt beautifully sang.
