We Are Good

Hello there good people.

As we enter into a new year opening a new chapter in the Book of our lives, many feelings arise within us throughout this transition. Some are light and joyful, others heavy and troublesome. It is always a mixed feelings affair when we are brought to a point in time when an opportunity offers itself to consciously say goodbye to the old in order to make room for the new.

My wish for you is to look upon the road ahead with feelings of hopeful anticipation combined with a healthy sense confidence in your own ability to materialize your wishes and dreams, so long as they be in your Highest Good.

More than that, may you come to witness your own power to create the world you want to be a part of. For our thoughts and beliefs are what shapes the reality we live in more than we give them credit for.

I want to use this opportunity to share with you a video made back in 2012 in Argentina by my friend Alejandro Rojas to a song of mine called We Are Good. Apparently the right time to share it is NOW, for the right opportunity has not presented itself before. May the sentiments shared throughout this piece assist you in staying in a positive mindset and seeing a bright future ahead of you.

Thank you Ale, and all who offered their hand in assistance.

A Connection Was Made (How I found my way to Iceland and met Sturla Mio Thorisson)

A Connection Was Made (How I found my way to Iceland and met Sturla Mio Thorisson)

When I was still a member of The Swell Season, and extensive touring around the world was my main occupation, I had the fortune and privilege of being in a position to meet many wonderful people and to make friendships and establish connections. Some short-lived, which faded just as quickly as they came to be, and others to be nurtured and grow stronger over the years to come. I believe that all the connections I made with people served a purpose of their own, big or small, for one party or both, but some of them were so significant, and their effects so life-altering, it is easy to track their path backwards in time and recall the steps that were taken in order for certain events to pass and for all the pieces of a grand design to come together.

Song of the Sea

Song of the Sea

Hey guys – I am just back in Iceland for a few days before we head out to Czech Republic for a show in Plzeň (March 29th), or Pilsen as it would be more known. I was asked to sing the Czech version of the title track of a beautiful Irish animated movie called Song of the Sea, originally sung by Lisa Hannigan. This was a very fun project for me and I wanted to share with you the trailer made for Czech cinemas where Song of the Sea premiered this month. Czech it out 🙂
