A lifetime of being conditioned to play it safe, don’t reach too far for disappointment will disable you, so it’s best to walk in the lines and conform to conventional wisdom. That has never sat well with me. Only after a decade of working myself raw to make millionaires more millions, did I realize that my dreams were larger than that. Money, particularly other mens’ money, was meaningless.
In 2017, my wife and I sold our house and made a home on the ocean. Now living aboard our custom 42′ steel cutter rigged sloop, we have made the time to pursue a dream of traveling the world and realizing our individual dreams. My oldest dream was to publish my music.
After 25 years of playing and performing, I put pen to paper and focus to intention and wrote, performed, recorded, mixed and mastered my debut EP titled Idle Divine. Born in ’81 and partying through the 90’s, music was raw and real then. Not overly produced, and in defiance of pop culture and corporate gains. Those are my artistic roots and the foundation for these works. Raw, real, no pitch correction, and no shits given about walking in the lines.
