I have too many   responsibilities and principles. There's no time for 'guilty' pleasures.


I feel blessed and   humbled that people have loved my music. Nothing would be possible without   their acceptance.

The idea of music   is to liberate the listener and lead him to a frame where he feels he is   elevated.

My kids miss me   when I'm away, but I don't mind living out of a suitcase. The U.K., U.S.,   France, Germany, Iraq... it's such a thrill meeting people of different   cultures, learning about and from them. It's changed my perception about   life, humanity and spirituality.


Wisdom comes from   within. Knowledge is acquired and can sometimes put a screen on your wisdom.

I usually work on   a film soundtrack for two years, turning in a song every few months, and that   keeps my creative energy high, because I'm constantly rotating projects. The   trick is to make sure I don't work too hard and get exhausted.
