I’m happy to announce my next release, coming out November 20, 2020. It’s an ambient track titled “Lights from Distant Stars.”
Coinciding with the single I’ll be releasing a video, and for this video I’m excited and honored to team up with a terrific amateur British astrophotographer named Mark Casto (aka Astrocasto), to feature his work alongside my music. The video will be produced in Full HD and will showcase Mark’s breathtaking photos of galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae.
I can’t wait to share the new track and video with all of you in November.
My new release Extasis will be available to download/stream in most music outlets July 10. Stylistically speaking, the new album is a follow-up to Circadia, and goes further down the ambient/new age path.
Here’s a track list for the new album:
- Fragrance of a Future Sea
- For Deloras
- The Golden Hour
- Sleepless Dream
- Tender Warrior
- The Corner of Luna
I’m releasing Extasis through DistroKid, and you can follow it (and me) here.
Please take a few minutes to check out my new single, “COVID Mosh Pit.” It’s sort of a nightmare scenario with a rocking beat.
I’ve reissued my EP Aquarian Eyes. It’s now available for sale exclusively at Bandcamp.

The song “Counting To A Million” is the rocker of the EP. It’s also a very personal expression of acceptance and hope. When you’re in a certain place in life, like trying to overcome some obstacle or recover from an illness or addiction, it seems like the struggle will never end. In the song “If I Let It” I wrote a line “some days each minute feels like an endless climb.” “Counting To A Million” is sort of the flip side of that. It’s about learning to embrace the process and not worry so much about results.
Once I figured out the analogy of trying to survive, heal or whatever being like counting to a million, the lyrics came very quickly. The came the melody and chords. After that, it was a matter of arranging everything. I was almost finished with the recording and mixdown before I came up, as an afterthought, with the idea of counting while the song was going.
The bottom line is, this was my way of saying it’s about the process. The Eagles sang about “The Long Run,” but according to economists in the long run we’re all dead. “Counting To A Million” is all about learning to love the process of living, and re-learning that process each day if the day before got messed up. Even if you don’t know how you’ll ‘get there,’ may all your journeys be fun.
