Yoga taught me I can do shit I never thought I could do - part b. In 2005 a friend of mine asked if I could do one thing in life what would it be. I responded that I would like to record an album one day. I recorded my first mantra album in 2011 and my next deep wish became to sing disco and funk with a full band.
I moved to San Marcos, Texas around the same time this wish expressed itself, and happened upon a bursting live music scene filled with good spirited, talented groups. I jammed with a few people, but nothing much materialized.
Then in May I heard about a band who was looking for a singer and I knew that it would be a good fit for the both of us. What made them so special and attractive is that they were a Jamiroquai tribute band.
I began listening to Jamiroquai when I was 14, and their music mixes rebellion, anger, happiness, joy, and the power of faith in light disco pulses. Just the thought of honoring Jamiroquai by singing their songs made my heart smile.
I was nervous to audition because I hadn’t ever fronted a 5-piece band before. I knew I was inexperienced, but what I learned through meditation is that the anxiety is temporary and smaller than the promise of a new experience. I allowed the group to see who I was by putting myself out there a hundred percent. They dug it and asked me to join the band. I am now the lead singer of Jamiroqueen.
Singing with this group is so special. Each member is precious and unique, and it's a gift to share space together. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would find myself here and my yoga practice helped me take the leap, put myself out there, and share my gifts in a new way.
