As a music producer, composer and independent artist, I have the privilege of collaborating with the gloriously unique, the creatively driven and the fearlessly passionate on a daily basis. Music is a universal language, an alternative vocabulary, where notes replace words and harmonies convey feelings where adjectives fail. Great music has always been raw. It resonates in the beating heart of society with a ferocious power that transcends artificial barriers and unites the people of the world in a triumph of the soul. In the end, isn't that what it is all about?
