White Swan Records releasing “Ameya”

I am very excited to announce that I have signed on with Colorado record label White Swan Records for the re-release of my independent 2008 album “Ameya”!  I’m honoured to be among their fine roster of musicians which includes Deva Premal, Donna DeLory, MC Yogi and the fabulous eccodek! The official US street date is March 6, but the album is available NOW through White Swan’s website , on iTunes, and at all of my upcoming events! I would be oh so thrilled if you could help show some early support for this baby of mine by placing an order and spreading the word!This release contains all of the tracks from the original Ameya album PLUS a sweet new song “Sharanam Ananada” and some great new production on “Loka Samastha” and “Maha Lakshmi”. Once again Ben Leinbach has worked his magic!

And…Ben and I are finishing up my new album of devotional songs, tentatively titled “Love Abounds” and scheduled for  release in June of this year! More details soon…
