What are the voices inside your head?

Hi sweet folks!

Is it only me or is time just flying? As again I find myself in front of my computer screen wondering what I have in me that could be bright, inspiring, simply loving or just good enough to bring us closer to each other… Too often we can feel life is like a carousel; it’s beautiful, music is sweet, the colors are vivid and appealing but soon we realize that the fake horse doesn’t take us anywhere other than this everlasting same circular scenery, we kinda feel it’s time to step off, stop the circus and walk with our own legs towards a different horizon.

What I AM and what YOU are in US…

My dear family,

Since last week I’ve been in touch with something really cool that I want to talk to you about. In my last blog I was talking about how we are all united together very powerfully. I’m so amazed to see how people from so many different backgrounds, countries, cultures, ages and education can relate to a music that is true and then open up even more as we all look deeper into what we all are as a group and also as individuals. We get to know each other because we have a common love which is the music but it doesn’t stop there! In fact it’s just a starting point!

Can you be more honest?

Our journey with you through “love Is A Promise Whispering Goodbye”

Life goes so fast. it’s a statement we all hear or say numerous times. It’s something we use to excuse the fact that we seem to lose control and are helpless seeing precious moments slipping through our fingers like sand. We look back and we can see a landscape made of victories, regrets, major turning points, persisting battles, reasons and remaining interrogations… Am I getting old to find myself looking back?lol Or maybe it doesn’t have anything to do with age but with a desire to fully embrace the full spectrum of life knowing that the past contains treasures we might have left behind or lessons we might find useful now. Of course we can do that introspection personally but we decided, as a band, to allow ourselves to look back on the time we created the album “Love Is A Promise Whispering Goodbye” and see…see if there were any hidden treasures…see if we could 3 years later admit what really happened during that troubled season… see how we are now the fruit of that experience, how we learned, how we grew… see and try to explain how this album impacted each of our lives, the lives of you, our friends, and how this album is still today helping us to move forward and dream for more.

Running through the rain of estrangement, catching pure drops of diamond bliss.

More than a bootleg… a revealing story…a touching music flow.

Right after the Bla BLa Bla of last weekend, I jumped on my computer to download my own version of the Bootleg filmed in Kyoto as I, just like you, was about to see the images for the first time! I know it sounds special that even if I’m in the band I didn’t even see the bootleg before it’s release!lol

Thinking back, I remember what happened that day, what I felt and the sharing I had with our Japanese family who joined us in the temple as the rain was persistently veiling the sky and surrounding the music with it’s chant, but as I started to watch the bootleg, I had the precious chance to have another perspective, to live it in a fresh way, to give to it a new place in my heart and allow myself to grasp it’s numerous gifts.

Who’s there to connect with my heart?


Hi sweet friends:)

Most of you are thinking of summer vacation and maybe even going more than 10 meters away from the computer screen for more than 2 hours… That’s scary!!!lol

Technology and communication is such a big part of our life that we can’t imagine a whole day without the internet, our cellphone, our ipad or AT LEAST our ipod (preferably including wi-fi to connect to the internet…lol). Yet, in an era of extra accessible communication, loneliness and human disconnection is still so critical, painful and insidious. Every hour we connect to internet…but who’s there to connect our heart to… clicking through the lives of others, can some pictures and videos help us to reach the level of communion we once believed in or heard about? I do believe it because when I open myself to you, when I share and I hear your stories, your life that you share generously with us, then when I look at your pictures I do feel the connection, I feel I relate to you, I feel that happiness to see you smile… Isn’t it weird that sometimes we still are the ones who fear to connect with anyone?

Coming back from more than a dream…


My dear family,

Even though I got to write a bit every day while on tour about what we were living and witnessing in my little notebook, I feel like writing to you is different and I missed it… sharing with you every week encourages me to take a look within myself and you give me the grace to be a witness and a supporter of what could bloom from that personal journey. I don’t always understand how that connection we have empowers me and how your life can also be inspired by these simple typed words of mine, but I am thankful it is all possible and happening. When I meet you and you tell me that this blog is a part of your life, I’m always so moved and I think to myself “This is so much more powerful than me or anything I write… this is how you, my friends, are alive and are changing your own life with determination and using everything you can find…not because what I write is so good but because your will is strong and you decide to give your all to live more and more free”.
