Are you ready to be initiated by the four archetypes within?

With these songs I intentionally invoke my inner Warrior, Lover, King and Magician and I hope it will help you to do the same.
This album is all about growing into a mature human being by connecting with the power of the four archetypes, and consciously walking together with them on the adventure we call the wheel of life.

These compositions express my interpretation of the four archetypes which I connect to the four seasons within and without, and so they follow the cyclical nature of mann.

I challenge you to listen to what these archetypes have to tell you.
