The Sky of Mind was created after I realized that there was a small (but robust and growing) alternative market for something called “new age” music. I wasn’t sure what that was, but  SKY  seemed to fit in okay. Aside from the fairly obvious “classical” connections, this album was influenced to some extent by the ambient music which began to appear in the late 70’s (especially Brian Eno’s work). I also drew on much of the music which I had originally created for the devotional culture which had formed around Samraj Adi Da during the 70’s. Of my five albums,  SKY  probably fits most comfortably into the assumptions that are made about so-called “new age” music. However, I think that those who respond to it do so not because it is “laid back” or “meditative”, but rather because they can feel both the devotional and the melancholy qualities that were so much a part of my life at this time.

This was one of the albums that really inspired me to become a musician. Ray Lynch was one of my biggest musical role models when I first started!
