ALBUM UPDATE: Extended arrival time, destination unchanged. After some hefty challenges during post-production stages of "Treasure Pleasure", I’ve taken the reins and am riding it into the sunset. Change really is essential for growth and so I’m letting all of this flow into the music. For now I’m working hard and taking the time necessary to make this collection the best I can. …slow is the new fast...

"Afghan Greyhound" is a soundscape/video piece made by Irish painter Marty Kelly and myself. The images and music were created in response to each other, as a meditation on the lives of refugees. Marty's work focuses on the endurance & strength of the human spirit of those living in regions of conflict, chaos and uncertainty. Today, and until Nov 2nd it will be screened in J.Cacciola Gallery New York as part of exhibition 'Trí' and is available on the new album Water Door.
