I am happy to present to you my latest 9-track original album, “The Mother Rune”, my musical journey of the past year. I have already had the pleasure of playing these tracks at festivals across North America this summer, and I hope you enjoy dancing to them as much I enjoy drumming! 

The “Mother Rune” is Hagall , a symbol from the Younger Futhark (a medieval Norse alphabet). Its elemental six-pointed shape (like the “Seed of Life” figure of sacred geometry) contains the seed of all the other rune forms.  Literally meaning “hail”, it has the dual meaning of a crisis and new beginnings - a perfectly formed snowflake that emerges from a whirling storm, a cold grain from the sky that melts into nourishing water.

Autumnal Equinox blessings - enjoy!
