February Distracions…

I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted something new. I’ve been busy writing songs for February Album Writing Month. It is an online songwriting challenge where participants must write fourteen songs in the twenty eight days of February.  It is a challenge I have been participating in since 2010 & I find very inspiring.

Now that FAWM is over, I plan on getting back into blogging regularly here at Sacred Knowledge.  But while you wait for my next post, check out my FAWM output from this year.  Leave me a comment below & let me know what you think of the songs.  You can also check out my entire catalogue of albums, live recordings & singles at my Bandcamp Site.  Let me know what you think.

Until next time…

But why is this? What is it about Music that helps us connect to the greater Spiritual presence? Continue reading
