T h e U l t i m a t e C h i l l (Album)
Dear friends, as 2020 approached, I began plans for new music releases. It was a hopeful time and creative energies were flowing with little resistence. In January 2020, I released "Mumbai Glow", a South Asian inspired electronic chillout song with calming vibrations. Soon after, "Liquid Theory", a meditative thought-provoking track was released. By February 2020, we heard about this global pandemic and by March 2020 we were in the midst of "watching the Earth stop". Loss of work led me to create an online radio CHILL program in order to get my chill thoughts out and heal the world. My only thoughts were "I need to channel this nervous energy into a form that is healthy, can calm, heal and balance everyone in need."
Songs flew from my head to steel pan, keyboards and voice with incredible ease and "The Ultimate Chill" was born and blossomed through the year.
My hope in releasing this electronic psy/chill album is to take you away from daily stress and send you on a travel to a realm of higher consciousness... new vibrations where life is as light as air. All I want for everyone is Health, Peace and Happiness. The rest is easy.
