The most important thing in my life is spirituality, and I consider everything to be sacred. I'm a very old soul, a hardcore early scout indigo, who has incarnated on this planet to carry out a very specific mission. At the soul level I'm a rasta/druid/mystic who came here to assist in the destruction of the old paradigm, and the bringing forth of Gaia's impending golden age.
I was born and raised on the Gulf Coast, and spent a lot of time in New Orleans and Mobile, where I marched in Mardi Gras parades and adopted the French Creole attitude toward music, food, dancing, and love of life.
I have a degree in English Lit from the University of Alabama, and I studied abroad in Oxford, England. I've been reading voraciously my entire life. These days I read a lot of metaphysical books from used book stores, and plays.
A lot of my life as an independent artist is not very glamorous and has been a very tough road, but it's a fact that I've been given the chance to explore the art, architecture, and green spaces of many of the world's greatest cities, and not just as a tourist, but as a contributing artist. I've spent a lot of time in Scotland and England, and have performed and explored in Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Berlin, etc. I've played in every major city in America, often as a member of other bands.
Outdoor music festivals (the smaller the better, almost) capture what I'm about - friends and family being together and enjoying music, nature, food, etc. I've attended and/or played at music festivals of every size and description, I've seen a billion bands, and if you took all the festivals I've been to just in Live Oak, FL, on the Suwanee River, you could fill about four months. I also like Jazzfest in New Orleans. I love the Fai Do Do stage, where the locals and Zydeco bands play.
I love reggae and zydeco...I tend to be attracted to the music that originated in West Africa and then morphed through the Jamaica and the Caribbean, and on up through New Orleans and Louisiana.
I aspire to be an expatriate, although America does have some beautiful cities, including Charleston, New Orleans, and San Fransisco.
