about

This hand-made-with-love album is a fundraiser for two causes that I am passionate about: stopping the Kinder Morgan pipeline in British Columbia (Orca) and promoting education in Cambodia (Plumeria).

All proceeds from this album will be split 50/50 between:
1. Kwekwecnewtxw Watch House on Burnaby Mountain (www.protecttheinlet.ca)
2. Empowering Youth in Cambodia (www.eycambodia.org)

I went around the world in just under three months visiting Paris, Nantes, Angers, Amsterdam, Alkmaar, London, Kathmandu, and Phnom Penh. This is a collection of recordings that I've made, if you'd like to support me in my efforts to create, record and share music, please visit www.patreon.com/user?u=47057

Track Name: Open
Unzip my heart
or break it open
this flame seeks dark corners and metaphors
your words lick the edges of my ears
and slip inside like patient lovers

your subtleties are breathless mysteries against my skin
love's earthly flame threatens to burn forests of doubt
laying the earth with ashes
for when we unzip our hearts
or break them open
Track Name: Tails and Tales
Driving on the left side, lost as sh*t,
got no map, signal, or calling card
but I got my compass, I got my senses,
I got my true north

Darting from the shadows, to silhouettes
got no where to be, no one knows where I am
but I got my compass, I got my senses,
I got my true north

Unexpected friends surround the flames
the words are warm the air is still
we dream of past and future lives
its such relief I'd like to stay

The only constant is change
we cannot control
The only constant is life sweeping us away
by our tails
our invisible tales....
Track Name: Ebb and Flow
Its not exactly new, I've been here before
looking for answers, bouncing off the moon
I've had an inkling
but the thought's removed

Don't I know better by now?
Surely I recognize
the ebb and flow,
the fear

Its not exactly new, I've been here before
swept up in heartbeats, a cyclical thought repeats
letting myself wait
like a drop of dew

Don't I know better by now?
Surely I recognize
the ebb and flow,
the fear

Its not exactly new, I've been here before
Track Name: A Thousand Stars
What worlds collide and hide inside
souls a thousand miles deep
We leave behind who we were
and weave our dreams to sleep

Birds and butterflies frame each day
as laughter blooms upon a face
Love fills the valleys, melts the snow
and leaves without a trace
Unfathomable beauty lights a thousand stars
It would take more than a century
to deserve one from afar

What worlds collide and hide inside
souls a thousand miles deep
We leave behind who we were
and weave our dreams to sleep
Track Name: Clouded Inside
I'm learning the nature of love
it ought to be sent off like doves
I sit here and soak in the stillness
simplicity brings divine bliss

I'm learning to see things as they are
not constantly grasp for something more
I sit here and wonder at the sky
infinite beauty in front of my eyes

I'm learning to love you from far away
so much I can't bring myself to say
I sit here and send you my light
I see now, why you had to take flight

I'm learning to recognize missed takes
and gratitude that doesn't break
I sit here and revel in the sun
praying that its not the last one

I'm learning to make space for what counts
shedding decades of doubt
I sit here and ask for your guidance
life's a subtle, inter-woven dance
Track Name: You are my Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know, how much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away

'Cause when the sun shines in
face it with a grin
Open up your heart
and let the sunshine in
