about

What began as a simple Christmas album became a deep journey into my roots as a black biracial man in America - and as I recorded these songs, the sounds and emotions of Africa continued to pull on me. At first I resisted, but then slowly let each song become what it needed to be.

This humble offering is a flawed, paradoxical, emotional album. It is Christian and it is Jazz and it is African and New Age. It is meditational and it is ecstatic. In its way, it is the sum of my life, my race, my history, my yearnings, my weaknesses, my prayers for the world, and my deep Christian faith.

Enjoy!

Thank you for supporting local artists!

Track Name: I Dream
I Dream. I dream,
Of a new kind of equality,
Where the people are treated with dignity.
I dream of piece.

I Dream. I dream,
of God's love flowing like a mighty stream,
And the people are holding hands as they sing
And all are free.

The nations shall cast down their weapons
And their swords shall turn into plows.
I know not how; I know not when,
But I can see how it's meant to be.

I dream.
