My parents were a big influence on me because they would sing their choir songs on our long driving trips, and I aimed to improve my voice so that I could sing beautifully.
I’ve been told I sound like Joni Mitchell at times. But I love world music, rock, r&b, some techno and hiphop.. and sacred music.
My favourite sacred music artists are: Sacred Earth and Shimshai.
Other artists I like are Murray Kyle – Conscious Roots and Soul, such beautiful heart inspiring lyrics.
The Unusual Suspects – A Funky Balkan Gypsy Brass Band I love to dance to.
Mike Love – Reggae, they play with such open hearts and open lyrics.
Michael Franti – same with Michael, such an open heart.
Nahko and Medicine for the People – I admire his purpose and presence and his words.
Ed Sheeran – I really like the sound of his music.
And some oldies: Nina Simone and Tracey Chapman.

‘We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.’

‘Four Principles of Listening:
1. Listening grants others the power of speaking
2. Listening is a gift. Be generous with it.
3. What we listen to is more important than what we say.
4. Communication is what is heard, not what is said.’
