A little love note...
The money used to purchase this album will go directly to the artist. You support artists directly when you purchase through bandcamp at the artist's chosen price. Other Outlets, such as Amazon, ITunes, etc. have set an undercut value/portion that goes to the artist. Thank you for helping to support your favorite artists here on Bandcamp!
These are my heart songs and my offerings to God. It is my honor to share them with you. I give my love and thanks to all the amazing friends and artists ~ old and new ~ who took the time to contribute to this project. Wow!!! I could not have done it without any of you! Your love, support and generosity have touched me deeply and I am forever grateful! I love you all so very dearly. My love and devotion to Sri Prem Baba for his loving guidance and presence in my life. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. It is with great joy and deep gratitude that I walk the bhakti path with all of you.
Please check out my single “Maitreya” with all proceeds from that song going to sponsor various projects that are working to clean up the trash on our beloved Mama Gaia.
