R Nature album cover early version.
We live in one of the most critical times in human history, faced with global warming, atomic pollution and mass extinctions, the opportunities to find solutions to all of these things has never been so urgently advanced and thought about. I use music to inspire solution, striving to empower everyone to find ways to be a part of creating a healthier world for the future generations. The time has come to end the needless destruction and the corruption that seems to plague the world. I truly believe that humanity has the ability to make the changes we need on the Earth, finding a more respectful and thoughtful way of living. I believe music is among the important tools we need to help us make a better world for all life.
