ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ABOUT ME

As long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a musician. Nothing makes me feel happier or more fulfilled than the effort that goes into making music, so I've dedicated my life to this pursuit.

Through the years, my idea of what kind of musician I would be has changed drastically. When I was 3 ½, I saw Itzhak Perlman playing the violin on Sesame Street and begged my mom for classical violin lessons. I knew at that time I wanted to be a classical violinist. As a teenager, I quit classical violin, picked up a guitar and was sure that I wanted to be in a rock-n-roll band. I saw Ben Harper for the first time during high school and was convinced I wanted to be a songwriter. As my horizons grew, I was introduced to flamenco music and chose to study in Granada, Spain with a musician friend. We lived on one meal a day so we could afford guitar lessons. I also traveled to Cuba with my band members to study Afro-Cuban rhythms and salsa music. I even went back to college and spent a year studying jazz and revisiting classical music, where I met friends I still play with today.

Some might view this as a flighty lifestyle, chasing from one thing to the next, but what I've learned is that passion threads it all into a cohesive path. I’ve always been attracted to and inspired by people who have real passion in whatever they do. In my life, I've done my best to follow my own passion wherever it takes me. It’s led me to tour most of the continental US, Hawaii, Canada and Europe. It's made it possible for me to study in various parts of the world. It’s allowed me to open shows for artists like Michael Franti and Spearhead, Robert Randolf and the Family Band, Steel Pulse and many more. It's put me on main stages at big festivals and in tiny coffee shops in front of five people. I will play for whoever will listen and go wherever I'm supposed to. This is my life. Music is my lens to understanding the world. It's the gift I've been given, and I feel blessed that this is how I get to spend the majority of my time and my focus. I want to share that with as many people as I can!

THE RECORD AND THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND IT

"Let Go, Jump in the River" is a collection of songs that I wrote during the past year. The underlying concept is that if we as individuals can let go of our baggage and really dive into life, there are good things waiting! For me, The River is music and worship, but I know that it's bigger than that. We all have to find what it means for ourselves. Giving away our control sometimes takes a tremendous amount of courage and faith that life will take care of itself. In the river, it's a fine line between knowing when to let go and when to paddle like hell, but the more we are in it, aware of it, following our instincts, the better we get at riding the flow. My own experiences have taught me that it's often our fears that hold us back from becoming the people we were created to be.

Through music and the support of amazing people in my life, I've found my courage and it's helped facilitate my own personal growth. My mission is to share that with as many people as I can, hoping that it will help them in some way.

On my last recording, The Del Mar Sessions, I played nearly all the instruments and did most of the work on my own. That was an incredible experience for me, and I’m so glad to have done it. Now, I’m thankful and excited to be working on Let Go, Jump in the River with some of my favorite musicians and people on the planet! This team of people is incredible, and everyone is so good at what they do!
