The Story of Diamond Light
"I have been experimenting with music of all kinds since I was very young. For many years, I have recorded at home, but never released anything professionally. In September 2003, I had a brainstorm. I challenged myself to record a CD of original music in 60 days, in my home studio. Songs, artwork, everything. Now, that's a tall order for someone who can barely find time to sleep. Not to mention that I create my songs intuitively…I don't read or write music. I felt very strongly that the album was to be relaxing, with no sad songs, no English words and an hour long. I shared my vision with my musician friend Vojin, and he thought I could do it. The CD was recorded at home in a few intense weekends, then professionally mixed and mastered in the studio. I played all the parts myself with the exception of two songs that were done with Vojin on keyboards. His talent and encouragement are definitely key ingredients in the energy of this project."
"Along the way, I went on a journey to places in my life that I had never seen before. Every time you reach a new summit, you are forever expanded. Doubt and fear loosen their grip on you and your sense of self is strengthened. Growing is hard work but it doesn't have to wear you out. Surround yourself with supportive people and the best tools. Then go for it and see what you discover. It's good to find out what your limits are. Only then will you know if you want to be more. Only then will you know what you are really about."
