about

On Sept 27th 2015, there was a full moon eclipse in the northern hemisphere (the "blood moon" eclipse). It started at 5pm in BC, right about the time that I started this recording and reached its peak at about 7pm, around the time that I was walking down the mountain in the dark. Earlier that afternoon I had driven down the backroads of Squamish BC, found an unmarked trail through the woods and carried my guitar and recording gear to the top of a mountain. I lit a fire and proceeded to record this organic acoustic album, live in one take.

This recording represents a return to my roots, the completion of a full cycle of life experiences and the beginning of a new cycle of creation as an artist and a person. I have returned to my origins, but I now see myself and the world with totally different eyes… I have been transformed by multiple journeys across the world and by my journey within myself. My own path reminds me of Joseph Campbell's archetypal "hero's journey", where each of us must go on a quest, fight battles, transform ourselves and then return home, changed and yet the same. We are the same as we were when we left, but we have become a more authentic version of ourselves.

Some of the songs presented here are new, but most are older, written at the start of my journey as a man forging his path in the world. They speak of a spiritual journey, a path that must be walked, the strength it takes to walk the path and the courage it takes to face yourself and your fears on the way to waking up. It speaks to becoming the being that you know you can be and dreaming the life that you want to live, until it becomes the reality that you are living.

This album represents a moment in time. A brief respite, away from computers and world instruments, back to a simpler and more organic approach - just me and my guitar in the forest, expressing my true self fearlessly with songs. This is who I am at my deepest. The sanctuary of the old trees and the mother ocean nearby gave me the power to return to my true self and create fearlessly…. to express who I am from my core. I want to share this album with you as part of my creative process and my spiritual journey. It is raw, it is rough, it is real and honest and full of feeling. I hope that you can feel the love and energy behind the words, the music and the singing.

Track Name: Walk
Walk
I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk
Fearless through the night, I will walk
I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk
Until I reach the light, I will walk

Ha ya ya… (Chant)

I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk
Fight to make things right, as I walk
I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk
Until I reach the light, I will walk

I won’t give up!
I won’t give in!
I will find,
Courage within!

I believe that we can be free
When we liberate our minds and we see
What we think becomes who we are
So look inside and see… who you are

I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk
By faith and not by sight, I will walk
I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk
Until I reach the light, I will walk

I won’t give up!
I won’t give in!
I will find,
Courage within!

I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk, I’ll walk…..
Track Name: Drummer
Drummer

You are the potter and I am the clay
I am the heart strings upon which You play
You are the writer and I am Your pen
I am Your story

You are the tiller and I am the soil
You are the lamp flame and I am the oil
I am the starlight and You are the star
I am Your glory

Chorus:
Beat, Beat, Oh Drummer of my heart
Pound, pound, the rhythm of my part
Dance, dance, to it’s ebbing and it’s flow
Beat, beat, oh drummer of my soul

You are the bliss that my heart will taste
You are the sweet lover that I have chased
I am the flower and you are the nectar
I am you beauty

I am the leaves in your sweet summer wind
You are the sunrise that will never end
We are the lovers alone in the grass
We are forever

(Chorus)
Track Name: Same Sky
Same Sky
I wish that I could share these stars with you
I wish that we could see the same view
But you’re so far away
Can you hear me say…

You have given so much to me
You gave it all and still said I was free
I felt all of your love
It helped me rise above, myself

There’s an ocean between us
A whole different sky
I still think about you
The days roll on by
I’m living my dreams
It’s been a good year
But it’s not the same
Without you here

Like parallel lines
We are the same
We never meet eye to eye
Are we so different?
So many miles apart
Or are we beneath the same sky?

Same Sky, You and I

I wish that I could share this all with you
Your belief in me has started to come true
Remember when we dreamed this
Lying in your bed
Our stars may be different
But it’s still like I said…

Same Sky, You and I
Track Name: In Your Love
In Your Love

And if You are in the sky, I will grow wings I will fly
Even if I melt away
And if you are in the ground, I will dig until You’re found,
Until my dying day

Chorus:
Cause I want You, I want You, In Your love I’ll melt away

And if You are in the night, I will build a fire light
Even if it burns me down
And if You are in the sea, I will swim into the deep
Even if I have to drown

Chorus

Bridge:
Like the river never knows the sea
Or the seed, never sees the tree
So I’ll never really know Your love
Until I lose myself in You and You are me

(Verse)
If You’re in the Milky Way, I’ll build a ship and fly away
Even if I’m lost out there
If You’re in the smallest place, I’ll dissolve into space
Even if I disappear

Now my Love I want to die today
Fall into your arms and melt away

Chorus
Track Name: Best Friend
Best Friend
I have walked a thousand miles, and you’ve been there with me
And no matter how I’ve changed, with you myself was all that I ever had to be
You pick me up when I’m feelin’ down, and I can’t help but smile when you are around

Don’t you know you’re my best friend,
You’re my best friend till the end!

Kickin’ back and feelin’ free, you and I both know that’s how life is supposed to be
I’ve got your back and you’ve got mine,
Well life can bring it on because together we’ll be fine!

Don’t you know you’re my best friend,
You’re my best friend till the end!

There is no way to show that it’s your blood in my heart
There is no way to show it’s your spirit in my soul
There is no power that could tear us apart
But there is one thing that I know! (You’re my best friend)

If there’s anything you need, I’m gonna give it to you
We’re gonna live a life of joy,
And help each other make each other’s dreams come true!

Don’t you know you’re my best friend,
You’re my best friend till the end!

My love for you could never end,
Cause don’t you know you’re my best friend!
Track Name: Loving You
Loving you

Intro:
I can travel the stars, within You
Universe in Your eyes, I’m surfin on love
There’s a river inside, of silence
And it’s screaming to me
I am that I am that I am that I am!

When I look into Your eyes,
Brighter than a million suns
I feel the You inside of me
Burn away all illusions

Chorus:
And Your light, washes over me
And Your love, is redeeming me
And Your song, is inside of me
I explode across an endless sea
Loving You is loving Me

You take me deep inside of me
To hear that secret songbird sing
It is the love You gave to me
I am that sacred melody

Chorus

Repeat Intro
Track Name: Lullaby
Lullaby

Don’t search too far, and don’t search too wide
Cause I’m there with you, I’m there inside
Don't travel too far, or stay there too long
Be still where you are and sing your heart's song

Chorus:
Love, love with all your heart and your strength
Love, love with all your mind and your soul
Love and I will make you whole

And I know your hurt, and I know your pain
And I’ll cry with You, until You laugh again
No matter where you are, or what you’ve been through
Just call out My name, and I’m waiting for you

Chorus
