Holiday Update

Namaste Everyone!!

It's been a while since I've blogged. I hope you are all well, enjoying life and gearing up for the holidays with much joy in your life!!

Mira and I have had quite a full schedule and have enjoyed an amazing Fall tour. It's also been an exciting time on the recording front as well. While on tour in the Southwest, I was contacted by a record label called Nettwerk Records. Nettwerk is based in Vancouver and is an amazing label headed by yogi and music industry maverick Terry McBride.  Nettwerk works with such artists as Sarah Mclachlan, Bare Naked Ladies, Avril Lavigne and many more. To make a long story short, I have signed with Nettwerk and much to my surprise have found myself living in NYC for the next several weeks making a new record...and I must say I am having a blast!! I hope to have it out by late spring/early summer of 2008. So, stay tuned!!!

We finish the year with holiday Kirtans in NYC on the 14th and Philadelphia on the 15th and then off for five days to vacation with our family. When we return, I'm back in the studio and on to more touring. It is truly a blessed life to share the creativity, devotion and community with all of you.

I wish you all the most bliss filled holiday season, 
a joyous Solstice and so many
blessings for the New Year.
with Love!  David
