His music runs the gamut from the political to the spiritual expressing social conscience and always remembering to include songs of love as love is the driving force and love is all we need.
The title of his presentation and the message of his music are called:
“The Eartheart Experience”. It is also the title of his newly released book.
He considers it a move-meant to “make our world a better place”. “It is our internal environment that dictates the condition of our external environment”. Integrity and truth, love and compassion rule the day!
“The most basic and important element outside of us, our external home our EARTH and the most basic and important element inside of us, our internal home our HEART happen to be two words using exact same characters in exact same sequence with exact same numerological value. These two words also happen to be “common denominators” to every one of us, and to all life on the planet. This is not mere coincidence but in fact of Divine Expression and an opportunity for us to transcend all that divide us and come together in that which unites us, our EARTH and our HEART. Peace and Love.
“A NATURAL ALIGNMENT FOR GREATER PURPOSE, POWER AND PASSION”
