"Strive with all your hearts, raise up your voices and shout, until this dark world be filled with light..."- ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Cellar & Sky is composed of some songs written during my final years in Oregon and my first Years in Nashville, TN. (2011-2014) They explore themes of pushing through the trials of life, truly enjoying the sweet moments, and finding comradery in this journey from cellar to sky, earth to heaven, depths to heights. I take comfort in knowing that even in times of despair and loneliness, I don't walk alone. I hope these songs serve your spirits.
