Yeah, hands down! I am his number 1 fan + that love affair began all those many years ago via this cool + poetic song, I Miss You, I was thinking “wow, a rocker with a soft side! Cool!” It was curiosity at first + one thing led to another, before I knew it, I was spending hours + hours researching about him + his band on the net (they were not that recognized here yet that time so local information + source are a bit scarce!) + I was dabbling on their music + lyrics. Before I even realized, it hit me hard on the face – I was in love for the very first time in my life!

His creativity, be it lyrically, musically or otherwise (he’s ventured into painting canvasses + walls of late) is what attracted me to him. His music has been my personal mantra. He might not be aware of it, but he was one of the key pieces to my journey towards self-empowerment! I never would’ve been brave enough to live life fully if not for his exhortations + eye-openers + I know that he’s made the same profound effect on so many people’s lives + for that we owe him much.

He continues to inspire the better of us, simply by living the life he chose. A life of creativity + a life of oneness with the All. This year, in July, for the third time now, Brandon Charles Boyd + the rest of his band, Incubus, will be coming to the Philippine shores for yet another rockin’ must-see concert. I hope I will have the opportunity to meet him face-to-face this time + probably shake his hands. It will be a dream come true + another item ticked-off my bucket list.

Love + Light,
