thirteen moons to wax and wane
through the circling of the sun
the seamless seasons of constant change
meld together into one...


Changing of the Seasons is a guitar-based musical art piece that journeys fluidly through the feelings of the seasons of the earth & the heart.

It is inspired by my experiences with Love and Nature during the last six years as a nomadic musician. Only once in those six years have I been in one place for all of the earth seasons, so I have become very familiar with the inner movement of spiritual change, which is reflected in this deeply personal album.

Every song has a story behind it. Some of those stories will be told in the time to come-- especially if you ask for them! For now, let mystery and imagination reign!

The songs that form Changing of the Seasons have been woven together from musical and poetic themes and ideas that have been ripening for as long as seven years!!

The actual recording process was begun in California during the time of falling leaves in the northern hemisphere, further developed and finished in New Zealand during the summer, and finally released on the Equinox, at the beginning of the time of falling leaves in the southern hemisphere.

The album represents one sun cycle, and each track represents a moon cycle, and can be listened to individually or within the context of the entire piece. There are many numeric and conceptual patterns and subtle synchronicities that I invite you to discover as you take this journey through the Changing of the Seasons.

i offer my deepest respect, gratitude and love to the sacred lands of Alaska, Aotearoa, Hawai'i, & the Americas, where all of these songs were born, during the last 6 years of travel, in which i have been given an abundance of magical experiences, strong lessons, deep love, sustenance for body & spirit, and the inspiration for these songs of natural harmony and wild rhythm. thank you!


my heartfelt gratitude goes out to:

- all of the amazingly generous people who contributed to the IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign to help me turn this dream into reality - you made this possible!

- the fantastic array of friends, family, muses, and co-creators who supported and inspired me on this journey: bruce & judy, jon, david, mondy, janna, drue, joy, xenja, montana, craig, robby, alohi, ryan, josh, andrew, bella, makete, sway, amy, AJ, vojta, henry, sacha, allan, buttons, esme, luna, ian, bee, and so many more...

- my amazing partner xenja, who was with me every step of the way--celebrating the victories, encouraging me past my doubts, giving me brilliant feedback, nourishing me with food, tea & medicine, singing with me, being excited with me, and most of all sparking and feeding that fire in my heart!

- my mother, who gave me my first guitar when i was 11, and my father, who gave me Makai (the magic guitar i recorded this album with) when i was 15.

- my dear friend & string wizard jon wondergem for putting so much love and care into helping my 6-string love sound and play her best!

- my sister, janna, for always believing in my path, and challenging me to put 100% focus into creating and sharing music!
