Welcome to “The Journey,” my latest album—an inspiring testament to the experiences that have shaped my music throughout my adventures as a busker, backpacker, and traveler.

This album not only captures the essence of these incredible journeys; it is a celebration of the ultimate expedition we all embark upon—the journey of life itself! Fuelled by an innate human spirit of constant motion, we are driven by a deep-seated desire to explore, learn, and evolve. This album pays homage to this unwavering spirit as we traverse continents, expand our horizons, and seek meaning and purpose.

On this page, you are invited to immerse yourself in the album. Additionally, you can catch a glimpse of the mesmerizing videoclip for the first single, “Surrender to the Journey.”

Your thoughts and ideas hold immense value to me, and I wholeheartedly welcome potential collaborations. Let us unite on this extraordinary musical voyage, combining our creative forces to craft something truly remarkable.

Join me as we embark on “The Journey” together!
