After decades as a successful song writer, producer and musician, I took off my work hat and dove deeply into the study of the Master Plants of the Amazon. After over 9 years of study and rites of passage with the Shipibo tribe of Peru, I now carry within me the energies, Spirits and Songs of many Plants and it has become my responsibility to record those channels and songs that are coming through me to be able to share them with us all. I don’t call them “My” songs, rather “Our” songs.. My hat is now back on, only this time for a different reason. I offer these songs as both an artist and as a servant and I’m humbled to share them with you. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin, Haux. Gracias, Iraké, Naiwen, Konoronkwa.
