“I was most excited to join forces with The Truth Band in creating this Are You Ready? project, because I knew it would become something magical. We pretty much recorded the project over the course of two weeks and it was effortless because the music just flowed naturally. It felt good to work on music and not be inhibited in the approach. I’m constantly evolving as an artist, not to mention I love all kinds of music, always have and always will, and I think this project is the beginning of showing just that.”
