"THE GATE" ...Hello Again & THANK YOU!!!! <3

So I have been working on some new material for the past 2 years. And as I, along with the entire world, witness our world change in ways that make my soul weep, I expressed some of what I felt in the work.  Granted, this isn't new for me. However, it was new in the sense that I approached it without any care or concern for what any Label would be interested in. I approached it as a Label Head/A&R/ Executive Producer etc. myself. In other words, for the first time in many years I did what I wanted to do, create freely and just have fun. That felt great and was what I needed to get back into a new groove.

Some of the songs are so raw and personal that I am still contemplating whether I will release them. But "The Gate" is not such a song. What I am sharing today is a DUB with components from  a full length main (Jazzier) mix that I plan to release at some point.  When that will be for sure, I have no idea. But being able to at the least share this with you, is more than enough to appease my rebel heart.  

I also felt it important with my return to Social media to not start letting people into my FB Profile until I had something to "say" to them. Most have been sitting Pending for 2 weeks, and I am grateful for their patience.  I have been trying to figure out the wisest way to reconnect with the audience that has supported me over the years, whether I was actively recording and releasing music or not.  And so what I am going to do is, let folks in and then set up an official FB Page where I will be Officially Promoting and Marketing releases in the future.

As for what this means for the long term of my FB Profile, I will probably close it or use it less after the page is established. But for now, I simply want to reconnect, and say "HELLO AGAIN & THANK YOU!" the best and most authentic way I know how, with my music.

As I and my current Collaborators know, what is currently in Production; the tunes are DOPE, upbeat and far more lighthearted than "The Gate".
But, because...

1. I cannot be tone deaf to what is going on all around us, and has been going on around us; I felt that the first tune
I should share, as a "THANK YOU!" for my presentation, should reflect that reality.  

2. I also wanted to put something out into the ether that represents where I am today versus yesteryear.
Growth happens people, and change is good! And "The Gate" DUBs are intended to reassure ya'll that I can still get down and what kind of sound and vibe I have been chasing as an Artist and Producer.


Merging sonic worlds has been what I have longed to do from as far back as I can remember. And now I am doing that, not just on my own, but in my Project choices.  I have to say, I am beyond over the moon about what is lined up!  I feel incredibly blessed to be working with the caliber and character of people I am today.

For now, I give you "THE GATE"(Lone Indigo All up in ya feels DUB) and   "THE GATE" ( Lone Indigo Out Of Body Dub).  I truly hope ya dig these bits as they are, as always, from my heart hopefully to yours.  




I am a Writer and a Songwriter first and foremost, then a Singer and Producer. For me the magic is in the words. Words are powerful things! My song lyrics are always inspired whether I'm a hired gun on deck to find the words to tell someone else's personal story, or the featured vocalist and lyricist. The work is always personal on some level. Every word, melody and arrangement comes from a profoundly genuine place in my core. I love what I do!
