I love the feel of Spring!

Seeing Mother Nature bursting forth with her finest colors and sweetest fragrences is truly inspiring!

Last week at the Bhakti Yoga Shala in Santa Monica, Neil Martin invited me to join a group of amazing musicians to welcome in the Spring Equinox and also celebrate the birthday of on of our favorite percussionists ever, Christo Pellani.

We all had such a blast! Neil Martin, Amita Stark, Daniel Stewart, Christo Pellani, Eddie Young, Vito Gregoli, Jesus Florido, Shervin Boloorian, Daniel Tyler Pohnke

Since ‘AWAKEN ME’ was released last Monday, we already have almost 600 listens!  Warms my heart to know that my mission of music as medicine is being received in the world ?

I’m getting pretty excited about the big release of the whole album coming up in just a few months.

Meanwhile ~~ back in the studio/office, things are starting to get busier in the planning and strategizing stages for the release.

talks with photographers and graphic artists for the cover art, and the team of people who will steward the album out into the world with me.

Its a bit intimidating, so I’m just putting one foot in front of the other and trusting the unfolding.

On the creative side, Vito and I continue to fine tune and put finishing touches on the existing songs.

Next week we will jump into the final two tracks that still need birthing in the studio ?

I got to sing ‘Awaken Me’ live for the first time, too!  And with such a great band!


On a personal note,

Spring break for the Haynes boys has been a blast with a different playdate everyday!

they have an abundance of buddies.

It makes me feel so good to see them enjoying their young lives with such abandon.  But, honestly?  I’m ready for them to go back to school!  LOL!!

Until the next time….

enjoy the flowers and the beautiful Spring lightness of being ?
