Sam and I wrote the melodies to 7 Sanskrit mantras. Purify is a very relaxing album! Light a few candles and take a long bath!

THE OPENING
This is the Ashtanga yoga opening prayer. I am a qualified Ashtanga yoga teacher! Bet you didn’t know that! This track is inspired by massive attack and produced by George de Angelis

GAYATRI
The Gayatri Mantra is said to be the oldest and most powerful of Mantras.

NAMAHA
The melody is based on ‘Over you’ by Helen Turner and me and produced by Morgan Visconti

SONG TO SHIVA
My gorgeous friend Melanie Williams is our guest vocalist on this track. She has such a beautiful, warm and delicious voice.

JAI MA
We loved recording this in NYC adding a little original American twist!  Produced by Morgan Visconti.

JAYA
Performed with and produced by Celloman this track is so uplifting with a sexy Middle Eastern flavour.

OM MANE PADME HUM
Produced by Steve Sidelnyk who is the Drummer to the stars! (Madonna, Seal)

GANESHI VOICE
Oh lord Ganesha please make all my work free from obstacles, always.

Sam and I sing this unaccompanied.

THE CLOSING
Our version of the Ashtanga Closing Prayer

“May all beings everywhere be happy and free”
