Universal On Switch is out now

For those of you who dont know, my dear friend and mother of my daughter, Andrea Burden passed away around this time last year. She was probably the single most influential person in my life with regard to art and music. She inspired the sound of Govinda in so many ways. Most of the songs on this CD were written from dreams where I was visited by Andrea this year. Others are arranged with all of the thick, decadent textures that she loved in music.

In addition to the music, each CD will contain a 5×5 high res print of her paintings (there are 3, a random one in each package). These are perfect for putting on your fridge or cork board display. We are donating 20% of the profits to the Andrea Burden Benefit Memorial Fund which is a fund set up to help Andrea’s two children that she left behind. If you  are interested in learning more or donating please visit her website at www.andreaburden.net

Thanks for listening!

    Your ability to create such a heartfelt display of music is wonderful. I am sure Andrea has received your soulful offerings and is full of joy in whatever dimension she resides in now. Much love…

    This may be odd, but whenever I’ve been connected to a spiritual experience listening to music such as yours, especially like “Contact,” the name of connection that was presented to me was Andrea.
    Be it chance or synergy, very great tribute. Keep making great music.
