"FLORA VISTA"

"My new album, "Flora Vista", has truly been a labor of love for me. Some albums happen in days, others in years - Flora Vista was recorded over the course of over a year, although many of the songs on the album were recorded mainly "live off the floor" with my pal Randy Woods engineering and co-producing at his studio in Saskatoon. All of the songs on this album were written on the acoustic guitar…..either my Gibson J-45 or my Washburn R320. Seven of the songs were written solely by myself, and three were co-written with close friends. It always takes a while for me, after completing a new album, to sink in to where my head and heart were really at when I wrote or co-wrote the songs, and where I was at when I actually recorded the songs. I've been very fortunate when recording every one of my albums to work with so many talented musicians, recording engineers, and producers, which allows me to express myself as honestly as I can, and working with Randy Woods on Flora Vista fit perfectly. One thing I've learned over the past few years is to trust my gut instinct (intuition) more, and recognize when my subconscious is trying to tell me something…………so……..that's what I did with Flora Vista.  

 

Love……..loss……….spirituality………addiction………recovery…...and back to love………….the circle…………… the goldfish swimming in the brain, the bliss, the tears, the day to day to day combined with the "is this really happening to me" for good or bad, the craving………….bigtime craving, beyond anything imaginable……….the love - deep, real, swimming with the goldfish and swimming through the bloodstream…………..at the ocean, the desert, the wheat fields, the bedroom, behind the wheel and behind the darkness……….of God, of your soulmate, of your children, your home, your universe……..hold up the palms of your hands to the sky……….love.
