The Dream Begins

Super excited to be recording my very first album!

Music has been a dream of mine forever, well…at least since I was two years old! My life and music has had many twists and turns where music took a backseat. And yet, there was a tugging that was always present, in the background. 

Sound familiar? I’m sharing my story in the hopes that it will inspire you to reach for that deep longing, the dream that is THE dream, the one you would regret at the end of your life if you never pursued it. THE dream for me is my music. I’m finally listening to my heart and making THE dream my priority.

Bhakti, the yoga of the heart, is the music that speaks to my soul and the music I will be recording. Taking ancient mantras that have been sung for thousands of years and writing original melodies/arrangements makes my heart happy! There is a healing component to this music, a connection to the deepest parts of myself, an expression of my soul, my light, my immense love for this world, Mother Earth and all beings. 

As I move through the recording process, I will let you know what it is like, through photos, videos and maybe even a few sneak peeks as the album takes shape. And so it begins! Will you join me on this journey?

 This is me and the sweet, super talented, Music Producer (Wizard!), Chris Gartner!

 Do I look a little scared? The yoga teacher in me is telling me to BREATHE (and lower those shoulders!) xo

First recording…the Mahamrityunjaya. A powerful mantra of awakening. I remember when I started singing this, with lots of tears and an earnest longing for transformation and change.

Weekend one: What an amazing experience! Chris put me at ease right away. I felt the genuineness of working with someone who lives this stuff, who understands the power of mantra, spiritual longing and wanting to create in order to be of service in this world. 

I knew when Chris and I met on Skype to talk about this project that he was the right person for me to work with because of his kindness, sensitivity, knowledge and experience but mostly because of this one thing he said to me…he said he sees his role as “…taking my creativity and elevating it to a level I never could have imagined”. Oh YES! 

This already feels like flying! My heart is very full, I am truly blessed. Thanks for joining me on this journey. Much love, my friends! xo
