About Me

I grew up in New York City, mostly in the West and then East Village. I'm an English speaking musician (and artist). [* I also do art, poetry, comedy and write].I've been actively writing and playing music since I was 22. I want to tour the world and busk and also sell my cds while I entertain and rock out. My main instrument is currently Tenor Ukulele, which I play while I sing and sometimes just jam with (I also play hand drums, drum kit, guitar and Bass). I write original music yet also do "spiritual" covers of songs that I like [A few examples: One of Us by Joan Osbourne, Space Oddity by Bowie, My Sweet Lord by George Harrison]. The music I create and play now - much of it is spiritually centered and I would eventually like to go to India and try and bring back Babaji (to earth)! You can read more about this wild idea here: http://redpillzone.com/babaji/
That's why my new album is entitled: 'Shiva in the Flesh'
Traveling anywhere significant outside of Hawaii costs a lot of money and being a musician, I'm not exactly a billionaire. I want to busk and sell my cd's directly to people in music-friendly places with music-friendly people. ARE YOU MUSIC FRIENDLY (even just friendly)? I value good quality people, spiritual people, fun people... even some "party people".
I try to treat people the way I'd like to be treated. Of course I bring enough cash with me on my travels to pay for my own meals, lockers, etc. Couch crashing is just a way to cut costs while making it possible for me to travel and also meet more of the local people at the places I go to. I guess you could say I'm a "Hippie" of sorts with spiritual ideals.. in other words I'm not that dirty, unkempt, mooching type "hippie" you read horror stories about on couch crashing websites: I like to leave a place cleaner than I found it and I understand the spiritual concept of service.
Hate to sound egotistical, but the latest album I've created: Greg Ganesh - 'shiva in the flesh' I think is pretty good andI don't hear very much new music coming out these days that excites me (except for the band: Wand), especially in the rock/pop(/kirtan) genre i like.
That's why I do music too - to counteract the mediocrity I hear in so much of today's music. I am also - at the same time - able to fill my life up with GOOD music and not rely on the radio or other artists to fill that need; the irony is that the -overall- awful popular music of today gives me something positive to fight for! (perhaps I've created a new genre as well: RocKirtanPop). Check out ALL THE TRACKS of my latest album IN FULL at www.repillzone.com (just scroll down. All the tracks are there to listen to). [*If you want to buy any, that option is there too.]

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I wrote a 50 plus page critque of 'A Course in Miracles' because besides being a musician I'm also a non-dual, "neo-vedanta" philosopher of sorts.
(You can find at www.redpillzone.com in the metaphysics section.) It's amazing because NO ONE has ever done a simultaneously constructive & destructive "critique" of it before.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach people how to play ukulele... how to play music, really.

Other countries I have been - so far - are the Netherlands, the UK, Canada, and Ireland. I also traveled across the United States of America hitch hiking and otherwise thru countless states and have lived in several of them.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good music, good humor, good art and my experiences with "GOD".

Countries I’ve Visited

Netherlands
