Spirit Dance was recorded at the former 1050 CHUM headquarters - the radio station that was graced by legendary musicians such as Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Elton John to name a few.
I thought it would be a cool place to record given the rock and roll history and mystique that continues to resonate within the walls of what is now a boutique condo building.
This was during the 2020 Pandemic in September just before the second wave hit. I was fortunate for that window of opportunity to record just before everything went belly side up again.
The concept behind my debut album, Spirit Dance, was to gather together a collection of uplifting, inspirational and socially conscious songs, counteracting the pervasive doom and gloom of the times and offering up some heart-warming and soul-nourishing tunes.
Each individual song tells its own story but as a collective, they share a common message of universal love, harmony and peace.
I feel incredibly blessed to have collaborated with platinum status producer/arranger Chris Birkett on this album. He took my vision for Spirit Dance and elevated it to heights beyond what I could ever have imagined.
Currently, I am working with EDM producer Eeladias on remixes of select songs from the album as well as new songs yet to be released.
This song is a call to awaken our spirits to live fully alive and active, overcoming complacency, distractions, entanglements and breaking free from the chains that bind us.
A song to honor the lost children and survivors of residential schools.
Every child matters!
This is a Symphonic Folk Remix.
A song that ponders the mysteries of time and space in a world of duality.
