CDs and Sample Songs

Light Within



An album of prayerful, melodic and heart-ful songs, that span time and space. Mostly original, some I learned under the stars and around a fire, and re-interpreted in my own sound and style. Truly an offering, I hope you are as nourished by these songs as a listener as I was recording them.
