“Haiti” – a new release – original music – give a listen!!
“Haiti’s history of misfortune, its plight following the massive 2010 earthquake then last years devastating Hurricane Matthew, truly emphasizes the lyric of this song, “the last will be first and the first will be last”. I wrote this tune years ago and recently reworked and remixed it with more emphasis on natural percussion. It’s will be available as a download shortly. Haiti will be on a 12 song original album called “Spirit in All Things” soon to be released. The CD is a mix of rock, reggae, ska.
All proceeds from the purchase of this tune are donated to the Haiti Relief efforts.

“Every time the bell of creation rings
Every time another sacred happening
Call of the heart in every man
Echoes deep chorus across the land
That the last will be first and
The first will be last
Living in the future and out of the past
Serving time prisoners of our mind
Forgetting the oneness we all know inside
Nobody’s better, nobody knows
Nothing to win, no where to go
Knocking so hard, nothing to lose
Come on people, people, can you feel the groove
Coming from ….Haiti Living in.Haiti
Born in ….Haiti Down in ….Haiti
Contrasting control deep fabric weaves
Accepting all people with all beliefs
African lesson, constitution of light
Delivers a message, we all will unite.”
