Welcome

I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living on the West coast of America.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you. 
 

Fear vs Love? Two songs to help dispel fear.
