Have you ever been in a situation where you felt that a particular song did something to save you from a negative emotion, pain or confusion? I like to define the beast as any negative emotion that could lead to a negative action, the kind that could have grave consequences in your life. I have been soothed and comforted by many music genres and music styles over the years. I believe that music has saved and keeps saving me from many vices that could have life changing consequences, and not good ones either. Taming the beast with music has been my therapy of choice. The music that I write must have some kind of an impact on the person who takes the time to listen to what I have created. Your time is the most valuable asset you possess. I am motivated by your giving of some of that asset to listen to my creations. Consequently I strive to write therapeutically in order to give us more power over the beast. When you spend time to listen to my music, let it be an invaluable tool for subjecting the beast to you will. May the words and music that I compose give you strength and the positive energy to smile, sing, dance, chant and subdue the beast. There are too many dark forces in the world today. Help me to shine some light in those dark recesses of our minds. I will laugh when you laugh, smile when you smile, dance when you dance and I will keep writing to tame the beast. Thank you for listening and for sharing my works. One love is my creed.
