Please share a little about your "Ted Talks" performance
It was an honor to share the room with so many people on the front lines for change and progress. one of the presentations i had to be on vocal rest for and my dear friend toshi reagon sang for me, I played guitar and spoke some lyrics and she sang the song into the room, it was a thrill and a privilege as she taught me the first chords i learned to play.

Tell us a little about the new record "Undivided"
Undivided is a journey of celebration, love, courage and the willingness to begin again...it addresses loss and how interconnected we all are. there is a lot of love and attention to detail in this album and i am very happy to share this chapter of my life through music with people, i think there is a lot people can relate to in the stories.
