BIO: GUARDIAN OF THE PLANET
My songwriting is influenced by a lifetime of adventures around the world and exposure to the wisdom of ancient cultures. Gathered around the fire, from the desert sands to the highest mountains, I have shared in the music and storytelling of those people who recount their history, traditions and beliefs through their songs.
Music is a universal language that knows no boundaries, and is considered by the greatest minds as the highest form of communication and connection. In today’s distracted world, music has a crucial part to play in reconnecting mankind back to the basic truths.
The first of these truths is that we are all brothers and sisters, no matter our differences. The second truth is the understanding and acceptance that the Earth is our home, and as a race of intelligent human beings, we have a choice in the kind of world that our children will inherit from us.
These songs are true stories that leave the listener empowered and inspired. I have found my purpose in spreading this good news through my music and photography. As in life, much of my songwriting includes the unexpected. I use alternate guitar tunings, play various instruments, some of which are quite ancient, and occasionally include sounds of nature that I have recorded while immersed the wilderness.
The title ‘Guardian of the Planet’ was born out of a headline given to me by the local press in a feature on my artwork. I decided to use the headline, along with a wry sense of humor that belongs with it, to shine a light on our one true legacy:
That we are all Guardians of the Planet.
