MESSAGE FROM DK:

If you would’ve told me 25 years ago that I’d be here, this many years later, still doing what I love, traveling the world experiencing amazing things and meeting wonderful people… and still very much in the game—I would’ve never believed you. It’s been the wildest and most exciting thrill-ride ever.

A magical and mysterious winding road, with SO many people along the way who’ve contributed and inspired, guided and helped navigate to arrive at this very special intersection in my life. Twenty-five years of wonderful memories and music behind me and hopefully many more years of discovery ahead.

All along the way, the fuel for my creativity has been collaborations with other artists. Singers, instrumentalists, arrangers, producers, songwriters…people from other countries and cultures— there’s always something to learn and some bit of wisdom to gain; always something special to experience when leaving your own comfort zone to find that middle ground with other open-hearted people, unearthing that nugget of creativity that can be so unique. It’s in this special place where the true art and essence of Collaboration exists.

Happily, I have been the lucky benefactor of so many such experiences, having the great honor and pleasure to create music with so many wonderful collaborators these last 25 years. Here are some of my favorites—a 25th Anniversary Collection that, to me, showcases some of the most unforgettable moments so far, along with three new collaborations to take us into year 26 and beyond.

Thank you so much for being a part of this thrill-ride, for going along with me on this journey, and for providing the inspiration all along the way. Whether you’re a brand new fan, or someone who’s been there from day one…none of this would’ve been possible without you.

With love, gratitude and respect…
dksig
