I believe in authenticity. My journey into music is, in truth, a journey into authenticity—learning what is actually true for me and how to say it.
I believe in change. I believe everything is always changing. We ARE change. “Transitional moments” are just moments when change is more obvious, or harder to deny.
I believe in feeling. I believe emotion gives life richness.
I believe in connection. Intimacy. The value of being seen. I believe we all deserve to be celebrated for who we really are. I believe we all deserve to be loved.
I believe in a different kind of confidence. Feeling safe without staying safe. Being at home anywhere, in any situation.
I believe in wonder. I believe in awe. I believe in childlike curiosity and fresh ways of experiencing the world.
I believe that creativity comes from a mysterious place beyond the person. I believe that the deeper we listen, the more broadly we are connected to all things. I make music because I have no choice.
I believe that there is space between everything and everything else, and that space is holy and pregnant and waiting for you.
I believe in perseverance. I believe in structure. I believe there is a paradoxical relationship between will and surrender—between volition and letting go. I will push as hard as I need to in order to feel I am living fully, even though sometimes it seems that there is no such thing as “pushing” or “living fully” or “me”.
I believe that the structure of reality doesn’t exist. There is no foundation. There is no one truth. Just pointers to pointers to pointers. We are building the world every time we open our eyes.
May you realize your creative potential. May you trust yourself even when you don’t trust yourself. May you show who you are even when every part of you wants to run away.
I’ve loved electronic music since I was a kid in suburban New Jersey. When I wasn’t building LEGOs, I was either making my own EDM, or staying up past my bedtime listening to it on the radio.
Since I moved to LA, I’ve been a composer, a mixer, a music editor, a session singer, a backup singer, a lead singer, a bass player (not a good one), a studio tech, a dancer, a graphic designer, and a web designer—pretty much every music/media job you can imagine, all in order to make a living in a creative industry in a competitive town. I’ve had some cool opportunities: my work appears in something like 40 TV shows and movies. I’ve played every major rock club in Hollywood.
But all along I’ve had a nagging desire to create a solo electronic project, so in 2017, after a brief stint as a meditation teacher (yep, tried that too), I finally decided to follow my desire. I studied voice, songwriting, marketing, video editing, and built a wonderful team that’s kinda like my own little label but better. Then in 2020, almost exactly in sync with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I released my first EP.
In two years, I’ve released six songs, three remixes, and seven music videos, with an additional single out in collaboration with DJ/producer Boxer on Anjunadeep. My music has been streamed over six million times. Glowing reviews have been published in music blogs such as Grungecake and YourEDM. My work has appeared on editorial playlists from Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music. And most recently, the single “Brilliant Eyes” won grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. EP2 is on track for a 2023 release, along with several exciting collaborations, videos, remixes, and more.
My deepest hope is that my music represents the authenticity and depth that I have worked so hard to uncover. Beyond that, I hope to inspire you to create what you want to create.
