Background || Wanderlust

Thank You for checking out Wanderlust, the First Volume of my solo releases. This music is the reflection of my introduction into Shamanic Plant Medicine work during my five years of living in Los Angeles. It all started with a book I read in 2007 by Daniel Pinchbeck while on a 2 month cross country tour called “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl”. It was in that book that I was introduced to Shamanic practices from the Amazon and Africa using sacred plant medicines in a way that I really responded to. After the tour I arrived in LA in an old white van freshly spray painted from Brooklyn and I just wasn't ready to go back to NY - I didn't really want to. All it took was an invitation from my brother to help him move while exploring what I could do in LA and a few month stint turned into.....well a bit longer. Those five years were easily the most transformative of my life so far. They also seemed to go by in an instant. Little did I know I was about to embark on a journey well beyond anything I knew or even thought was possible….
