Born and raised in Washington state, Shimshai is an advocate of a simple, sacred life and currently finds his base in Hawaii.
Shimshai has been playing up and down the west coast of America for the past five years or so and has performed on stage with the likes of Cannon and the Lion of Judah Band, Jai Uttal and the Pagan Love Orchestra, Ram Dass, and Jah Levi.
Surrounded by music since birth, Shimshai was trained on piano in his youth, followed by guitar and flute, and he plays most of the tracks on this album, including bass, clarinet, saxophone, and melodica.
Arranged and produced by Shimshai, 'I Sense Your Presence' is the first album from this artist, sure to be followed by many more. For another flavor be sure to check out the new release from Shimshai & the Natural Mystiquensemble, "Toward the One."
As an ordained minister of the Essene Church of Christ, Shimshai takes root in the Essene tradition, but ultimately adheres only to universal devotion of spirit.
Always driven by a passion for music, and to touch that place deep within each of our souls, this recording is truly a muti-layered journey of love, light and truth.
