Thank You For Your Consideration

New Age, Ambient, or Chant Album

About the Album

Aquarius Rising represents the age old story of personal triumph over adversity: both the inner conflicts and outer conflicts one must overcome to succeed. This album reflects my own journey with that, but it's a theme we all can relate to.

On a more global level,  it also represents the theme of the dawning of The Age of Aquarius, that Golden Age, we've all heard of...of good rising over darkness.

While recording, I strived to capture the beauty of that moment when the goodness breaks through the negativity and starts to re-establish itself in our inner and outer of beauty and celebration. 

Through this, I was able to reconnect with the beginnings of my musical journey. Song for You is the first song I ever wrote. I was 12 years old at the time I composed it. So, for me, my journey in songwriting started there. 

Aquarius Rising is my first album release in 14 years. While I have produced and released other albums and singles with other artists during that time, this is the first release under my own name in a long time. 

I've always wanted to record an album that is EPIC in sound, and Aquarius Rising was the perfect opportunity for me to do so.
