1. Why are you a musician?
Music is a huge part of my spiritual path and practice and the main reason why I am in this world. It is the primary way that I serve humanity by offering peaceful gentle healing music to all.
2. Who are your musical inspirations?
When I was starting my musical career in the 70’s, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Yes and all the classical greats had a profound impact on my formative years. In new age, Enya, Tangerine Dream and others were deeply inspiring.
3. What is your practice routine?
In my classical years, I practiced about 8 hours a day. These days, I only practice for specific goals like playing a particular part in the studio on keyboards, guitar, bass, cello, or singing a unique lead or backup vocal.
4. Why did you make this album?
Spiritual Warrior Workout
By Deepak Chopra, Paul Avgerinos, Kabir Sehgal
For working out and being active in general, there is not that much music available which is upbeat and stimulating, but also rich in spiritual wisdom and inspiration. That’s why we made Spiritual Warrior Workout: high-vibration music with affirmations that inspire your spiritual understanding and growth while you pump up your next sweat session!
5. What were the biggest obstacles in making this album? How did you overcome?
I don’t do that much pop dance music, so I had to work a little harder to get the tracks sounding right for this genre!
6. Who is featured on the album?
Deepak Chopra and Kabir Sehgal are my main collaborators, but Spiritual Warrior Workout also features all these fantastic singers: (in order of appearance) Emma Kiara, Sonna Rele, Aureliaslight, Sara Niemietz, Carmela Rodriguez and Thana Alexa.
7. Where may we find you online?
Note: Kabir Sehgal helped produce the project.
