2014 was full of new adventures, new directions, and reuniting with old music friends. Full circle stylee. Much love and gratitude to all my friends, fans, family and even strangers who helped make this work feel so fulfilling. I'm going to keep on keepin' on because of all of you. <3 Below is a sampling of some of my proudest moments in 2014.
