"Full Circle." A short, powerful sentence to describe all of the things that have happened in our lives. For me, Full Circle is about finding the things that I want to hold onto forever and throwing the others into the sea of forgetfulness. It is about finding ways to survive - and - thrive!
Full Circle is a 12-song package of my passion for music, fresh air on a flame that will roar through your heart. It is more than a collection of songs. It is a journey that I want to share with you. I hope you come to see your own courage and creativity through Full Circle. I hope you find the same power of belief.
As Martin Luther King said, "Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase."
