OVER is a story about the different ways we view and experience falling in and out of love. Love can be found or taken from us. Love is sometimes re-discovered, feared, protected and even lost. It can change right before our eyes in seconds, and other times change over a lifetime. Love can blind us, heals us and even fade to nothing. What an amazing, powerful and controversial 4 letter word.
This album is influenced mostly by the old school SOUL / R&B eras. You may hear some STEVIE WONDER, PRINCE, MICHAEL JACKSON, SLY STONE. You'll also hear more current influences such as JAMIROQUAI, STING, ROBIN THICKE, D'ANGELO and more.....
Enjoy the album, and don't forget to spread the joy of music wherever you go. It is a true universal language.
