Sidetracking - Music

Music is so powerful that it has at times dictated my mood, saved me from woe, or been a catalyst for my emotions and expression.

There is also a beauty in silence. Sometimes I will turn off the music in my headphones and save it as a reward. Like with all good things, they're best to be taken in moderation.

I like to believe I have some sort of music juice in my blood. My dad is a renowned guitarist/musician back in Ghana and my mum used to be a  backing singer in the 60's and 70's. I never really had the discipline to stick with the piano or guitar, but dancing and art has always come more naturally to me. They all go hand in hand in my opinion - artistic forms of expression.

These are a few music tracks I'm listening to at the moment for work & play :

After a hard day's work,  I escape to South America...

Cow concept art for a recent project.
