Online Release of new EP : A Golden Hue


View this email in your browser
Hi folks!
I'm writing to tell you about the release of my new EP!

I finished it about a year ago and I'm really proud of it. Making art of any kind brings me an immense amount of joy, but songwriting definitely takes the cake. 

I often get distracted from the joy I have found in songwriting and lose sight of the whole purpose - letting it be a free expression of myself. Theadore Roosevelt said it so wisely,
"Comparison is the thief of joy".
This life is very short. So let's get back to enjoying who we are and celebrating our unique contribution to the world, whether it be art, music, or something else entirely!
Click on my new album cover below and take a listen. I hope you all are well, wherever you are.
