True art touches the spirit and elevates the mind to find the hidden potential within one's own soul. When I create music, I am very purposeful. I hope to change the way people think and feel about their own life by expanding the possibilities of what music can make you feel (without the need for drugs). I want listeners to feel something deep. It's only worthwhile if repeat listens reveal fresh perspectives and ignite untouched emotions. Most of today's music leaves the listener entertained but often times very empty. It's time to shake things up. My hour long song "First Light" is the next step in my attempt to make art with substance, depth, and sincerity as inspired by God's power to free the soul. I want the listener to escape from the prison of whatever is holding us all back from reaching our full potential in life here on earth.
