The songs for the album were written on the shores of Mexico & Portugal. The album’s release is tentatively penned for an early 2024 release and will be a rich fusion of Mexican ‘gunslingers’ desert swagger in a dance / world-beat style that truly takes the listener on an exotic journey to the Mescaline fueled ‘Peyote-Cactus’ dreamland.
