about

Year of the Nightingale is my first full-length studio album of songs based on the Bahá'í Writings. It was produced by sound-engineer/rocket-scientist Kelly Snook and features musical contributions from some of my best friends and favourite musicians. It was made with love and science, recorded in more studios than there are songs on the album, and released in honour of the Bahá'í Community's 2017 celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892)
