Wow – Thank you Jeff &  Ear Up Records for enabling this project to come together! I’ve never gotten to be on a recording together with my long time friend Carter Beauford and I’m so inspired to be a part of this Dream Shanti project…this is a wonderful mixture of musical influences with old friends and new!
