In the Carmel Valley Hills, we stepped on to an amazing stage in front of a small city of conscious folks during the 2017 Big Surreal Festival. In board shorts and tank tops, we ripped it in 100 degree weather. Luckily there was an ocean breeze and lots of love in the air. Thank you to the 1000 + people who came out, and made it such a memorable couple days!!

Nu Merica enters the Matrix

Something so personal...my thoughts down on paper, then vocalized, and turned into song...then shared with the world. Something so freeing and expanding, that i hold sacred. I've had a crazy life, that has seen so much death...so much beauty... so much to be thankful for...so much to make me Believe in something more...so much to fight for with all my heart. Come with me on this journey, and I promise you will always receive truthful energy, and all that is here for you
