Sol Celebration Released!
The new EP “Sol Celebration” is here!
It has been 2 years since my last digital EP release, “My World”. Since then I’ve developed a number of songs that I’ve so patiently been waiting to nurture and bring to light. Finally, my new release “Sol Celebration” is ready.
“Sol Celebration” was a genesis of dealing with loss in a spiritual way years ago when my dad passed. Fast forward, years later while finishing up on this production, my mom was transitioning from living independently to a nursing home. She was a lover of life, food, music, and people. Her passing while I was finishing this production really struck once again the analogy of our “Sol”, our inner light that I believe does transcend into another light, another energy. From within to outward that inner feeling, I feel it has to be a celebration in some ways as our souls move on. This track began while I was morning the passing of my dad, and over 10 years later it concluded while my mom was passing on as well.
“Somebody” started back in 2015 while in a hotel room in Montreal. There I was looking at the skyline of the city, working on a chord progression and a repetitive phrase kept haunting me that was… “Goodbye”. Odd how art imitated life just a few days after I returned to the states when somebody in my life did say “Goodbye”. Relationships regardless of how short or long they were intertwined into our lives, have a way of harnessing some inner artistry that you never knew was there until you have to search inward and pull it out.
