Quotes:

09:54

“I think on the personal level, people should take it upon themselves to organize their lives. So, they are not put into situations where they have to make a tough decision when they’re tired, and it’s late in the day, and they’ve just had the hassles of normal life adding upon them.”

27:58

“I firmly believe that everyone has their own personal currency that they have to offer the world, and should use that to reach their goals and to share that to enrich other people’s lives.”

29:09

“So, you’re looking at all of the things I have listed on my resume, it all says the same thing  James, which is to inspire people, right? I’m not five people rolled into one. I’m just one person inspiring people in different ways.”

35:15

“I’ve always liked or thought about, if I just had the vision, just to see how everything would come together, I can help so many other people, including myself and my students to be exactly where they need to be because I could see the entire field in amazing detail as they do.”

44:07

You’re not perfect, and neither are the things you want to do. But that doesn’t mean you can’t work within that, to just bring forth what it is you want to give to the world. So, I think everyone has something that really only they have, and that really only they can do better than anybody.

“Ride On” with Circle of Sanity’s Vocals and Lead Guitarist Josh Sapna

“Ride On” with Circle of Sanity’s Vocals and Lead Guitarist Josh Sapna

Welcome to episode #309 of dHarmic Evolution

We’re going to the great state of Pennsylvania today! We’re going to visit a band called Circle of Sanity. They have a combined array of styles. They were brought together by faith friends and a little luck. Ever since then, they’ve been writing new material, performing songs, and all written by individual members before they got together. Now, they’ve got this great gig and they’re playing shows locally and regionally – they’ve done everything from 50 seats to a thousand seats. Leaving with an overwhelmingly positive response from the audience.

Today, we’re going to chat with Josh Sapna, the band’s guitarist and vocalist. Let’s get to know him more, what he enjoys aside from music, his approach to songwriting, and of course listen to some of their great music from the EP: Celestial Mechanics. Listen to Break the Silence, Mortal Coil, and Ride on. Don’t forget to check on other music that they have as well on your favorite platform. We’ve got some pretty heavy music coming up with Circle of Sanity!

More about Josh Sapna

Circle of Sanity:

Josh Sapna – guitars and vocals;

Carson Slovak – bass

Grant McFarland – drums.

Make sure to check out and support Josh Sapna and his band, Circle of Sanity. All the band’s social media links are provided below.

Quotes:

03:40

We always thought we got together to jam that was where we got our sanity back and escaped from everything, and that became our circle. There you have it. It was born “the circle of sanity.”

11:48

Books left open to interpretation, which I do on purpose. Yeah, so my songs, I don’t want to be too definite in the meanings, because I want more people to be able to apply their own life and experience to it.

51:36

The number one thing and I have always said is this. Never. There’s never been a time that I sat down to write a song and said, Will other people like this? Not once. The only question in my mind is at the end of it? Do I like it? when I buy this would I be impressed with it? and I don’t know if that sounds selfish. But that’s really the only way you can stay true to yourself is to not worry at all about what anyone else is going to think of it.

More than a Beauty Queen: Navy Commander and Doctor Corinne Devin

Welcome to episode #308 of dHarmic Evolution

We are honored to have a special guest on today’s episode of the dHarmic Evolution. She is a US Navy Commander, an orthodontist, a motivational speaker, a world traveler, and reigning International Ms. 2020. We’re going to Japan today to hang out with Navy Commander and Doctor Corinne Devin.

As a multi-passionate woman, she has learned to not only balance her passions but use them to make her a better officer. She is a daughter of the American Revolution deployed with the United States Navy in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom to Al Asad. She also attended the Elite Tri-service Orthodontic Residency Program at Wilford Hall Medical Center. And, she’s a keynote speaker at the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) conference to over 1000 Middle School girls for the Department of Defense in Japan and Italy.

Get to know more about her amazing stories in the US Navy and her travels on this episode. She also lets us know of her pageantry journey, her current life, and her plans for the future. Get ready to be inspired and amazed by this high achiever young lady who is very unique and lovely – Doctor and Commander Corinne Devin.

More about Corinne Devin

You can follow and support Corinne on her social media pages. Please see all the links listed below.

Quotes:

10:47

“I was very blessed to have some wonderful, wonderful bosses and leaders who’ve been very supportive and have also told me what I need to do and that’s to continue what I do. And I tell everyone, it requires a lot of discipline, it requires you doing (not) what you maybe want to do, like hit the snooze button, but actually what you have to do to get there.”

26:15

“You really have to know who you are, and be confident and not feel you have to apologize if your answer doesn’t agree with the person you’re speaking with. As long as you know, you feel acknowledged, and you also appreciate them and acknowledge and listen to them.”

45:06

“I love being part of a team. I love being part of a group. That’s one thing the military has taught me – is being able to share that responsibility. So, we all can have a chance to unplug, but also to really be in that environment of growing and developing others, as well as pushing myself.”

47:37

Everywhere I go and everywhere I look, everyone’s trying to do things to be more comfortable. They’re looking for the more convenient. But I’m going to tell you that if you look at all these successful people that you aspire to be like, they come from a place of being uncomfortable. And when you were trying to avoid the pain or the struggle or the hard things, you are actively choosing to be average.

Quotes:

20:30

I think we’re all on a healing and a blossoming journey. We’re all on a journey of learning to give and receive love… To give, and receive, and embody love.”

 

28:14

As I became more aware and intentional about creating an inspired life, a heart-centered life, I started making more empowering choices, as to mindset messages that I was going to surround myself with the types of people, the types of organizations that I want to be a part of. And so, little by little I started gravitating toward other heart-centered, God-inspired people. And little by little, as the light started coming in, my life started to be a reflection of my deepest truth. And I call that walking our Soul path.”

 

36:23

Sometimes, when we are dealing with something that’s upsetting us, that we feel angry about, or we’re in a negative state about, we try to fight the negativity and we try to get rid of it, which causes a lot of resistance. And I have found – and this is what the practice of yoga and spiritual practices taught me – that by inviting the light in, inviting the love in, inviting spirit in, the forgiveness, the healing starts to happen automatically.”

 

37:17

I can have a lot of intentions throughout the day, but my one guiding intention is to be an instrument of universal love.”

 

41:43

“…Maybe they’re not singer-songwriters, or an author or a writer, maybe they’re calling us something different. I would like to share with you that that doesn’t mean you’re not a creator. Your life is your greatest art form. I believe our life is a creation, we create through our thoughts, words, our actions, and our choices.”

Time to make a “Midnight Escape” with Indiana’s Jazz Singer, Barbara Santora

Time to make a “Midnight Escape” with Indiana’s Jazz Singer, Barbara Santora

Welcome to episode #306 of dHarmic Evolution

We have a phenomenal jazz singer on today’s episode of the dHarmic evolution. She became known not only for her pure voice in the exceptional five-octave range but for her ability to connect with her audiences emotionally and draw them into the music. She has played in Las Vegas for 14 years, sharing the stage alongside talents like Frank Sinatra Jr. and Billy Preston. She also was a featured entertainer for USO, lifting the spirits of our men and women in uniform for three years. From the great state of Indiana, let’s welcome Barbara Santora!

Today, Barbara shares with us her great experiences in Las Vegas and the time she did USO tours. Get to know her more and of course, her music! We’re featuring some of her amazing songs such as “Micky’s,” “Midnight Escape,” and “That’s Just the Way It Goes”. We’ll get to listen to them, know their stories and go behind the scenes.

Quotes:

20:43

“I really hope James that I never reach a point in my life in my career, that I don’t think I can learn something from someone. Because, I believe that if you reach that point where you feel that you cannot learn anymore, then you’re really done.”

 

27:58

“I really think that that’s the whole inspiration behind the whole thing is that, push the other stuff aside, stay true to yourself, and move forward. And somewhere, someone along the way, is finally going to realize who you are and what you do.”

 

33:25

“I go back to the fact that I don’t believe that it was my talent that stopped me; from our lack of talent that stopped me from making it a long time ago. If what we call making it is what we call like, being known all over the world. But I really believe it was because I believed that you had to keep the principles. If I cannot look in the mirror and like who I am, then I’m not gonna be happy.”

 

55:50

“It doesn’t really make any difference if you’ve got 100 people or you’ve got 10,000 people. You are there to do what God gave you the gift to do and do it. Go for it. Go for it. I don’t care how big your crowd is how little your crowd is. Give them all you’ve got because that’s what God gave you.”

 

57:23

“For all of those out there that have given up. Put your career in God’s hands, and in His timing, and let Him decide when it’s right for you to do it. Because you’re going to go through obstacles all along your way. But if you love it, and it’s what you’re driven to do, put it in His hands and watch his miracles happen.”

21:46

“Our task, I believe, is to go deep within, is to reassess everything now, and to find out should we even be singing? Should we even be producing art? And if the answer is Yes, then it’s got to be something that speaks now to the to the new music industry to the new time that we’re in for however long that is.”

 

26:32

“I think there is a purpose, I don’t exactly know. I think it has to do with spiritual healing through music, and not only that delighting through music and entertaining through music, and just being marvelous through music. And music will never lose that power.”

 

37:02

“I think that’s what really lit my fire again. That, you know, I have to feel that I do have something to bring this world through my art, something to give. Not just that I want to receive the glory of it.”

What’s “Out of the Void” with Dream Aria’s Ann Burstyn from Canada

Welcome to episode #304 of dHarmic Evolution

It feels like I’m back where I belong and that is here on the dHarmic evolution hanging out with you. We’ve got an awesome, young Spitfire lady today on the show. We got to chat with her before and it’s amazing to hear from her again. She is a singer, a lyricist, and the star performer of the band Dream Aria, Ann Burstyn!

It feels like I’m back where I belong and that is here on the dHarmic evolution hanging out with you. We’ve got an awesome, young Spitfire lady today on the show. We got to chat with her before and it’s amazing to hear from her again. She is a singer, a lyricist, and the star performer of the band Dream Aria, Ann Burstyn!

Dream Aria is one of the best Canadian Progressive rock bands that I know. They were already great before, but there has been a lot of growth and development that you can hear in their sound. The playing and the vocals have jumped way up. As they said, their motto is “No rules, no boundaries.” They don’t limit themselves to evolving their sound. We’ve got two amazing tracks featured on the show today but there are a lot more to hear from them, so check out the links below on where you can find them.

Ann updates us on how they are doing right now in Toronto, Canada – also with her daughter, health-wise, and of course, with their music. She also shares some of her hobbies and something that can help you with de-stressing.

More about Dream Aria 

Other Members:

  • Donald Stagg – Keyboardist, Composer, and sometimes lyricist
  • Garry Flint – Drummer, Producer/Engineer, Co-composer and main Composer
  • Andrew Berezowsky – Guitarist, Violinist, Vocalist

Dream Aria is virtually everywhere, but the best place to check them out is on their Facebook page. Ann and Don are both on it, checking your messages for whatever you need to reach out to them with. Also, check out their YouTube channel, they’ve got new videos waiting for you. All links are provided below.

Quotes:

11:33

“Every day that’s a studio day is the best day. For me, it’s heaven and I don’t like being away from the studio, in fact. I find it difficult.” 

23:03

We want to be together. The real magic is actually being together.

26:58

“Being outside in nature, and doing the photography and seeing all this beauty that I really didn’t know existed. I mean, I knew it was there, just not to the extent that I’ve now seen, has been very healing for me. And it helped take away a lot of my physical pain, emotional pain, mental stress, it’s a good de-stress. “

29:29

“The fresh air alone. I mean, anyone can do this if they’re feeling low, or just, you know, clutters in their head. Just go outside, just for five minutes. It’s so feeling just the fresh air or there’s a certain vibe.” 

45:13

“I think my main thing lately is seeing that people are quite depressed, isolated, lonely, and sad. And when I speak with personal friends about this, I urge them to try something new to get out of there, that feeling of isolation.”

46:55

“Honestly, everyone has something in them I think that they can tap into, and then they can develop into this gift they never knew and that they can share it with others. I mean, how great would that be?”

Jason Damico, throws us back to the greatest “Rock & Roll”

Jason Damico, throws us back to the greatest “Rock & Roll”

Welcome to episode #302 of dHarmic Evolution

Today we’ve got a really unbelievable guy, he is like a throwback to yesteryear. This young man is a tribute to the best rock music you’ve ever heard in your life. His music is like a rework of the whole sound of the classic rock icons of years gone by and made it even better.

Check out this gentleman! He is a musician, producer, singer-songwriter, and mixing engineer. Moreover, he is an actor for a couple of decades now. All the way up from North Carolina, Jason Damico!

A little background on Jason Damico

He grew up with great parents who have been supporting him in both music and acting. He started out as an actor when he modeled as a calendar baby at 18 months old. At 2 years old, he was holding a plastic guitar, making the couch as the amplifiers and it is for him as a vision quest and that’s how everything started. He was raised music-wise with a little bit of the faith-based Christian raw community and the secular music – from the classic rock icons.

At 15, he won the battle of the bands with some friends. Recording his music fueled his creativity in producing and as a mixing engineer to create sounds. During his freshman to sophomore years, he went to jazz camps at colleges. He was in college-level theory courses as a drummer, his main instrument.

He also shared with us his injury back when he was 14 which instead of being a setback became a supernatural experience on understanding the context of soundscape both from a structural standpoint and also melodic theory.

Jason as an actor, musician, and producer at this time

Jason’s honest answer when asked how he managed to balance his acting and music career is “Barely”. He really got a lot on his plate. But from his standpoint, he considers acting and music as not as much different.

Due to the current situation, Jason just did house concerts, but he is mainly focusing on all the projects he is going to roll out in 2021. He also did mix a couple of records for other artists. As of the moment, he is still in the process of elimination and is waiting to unfold what is in store in the future.

More about Jason Damico

Jason got good news on what he’s been working on and the best place to stay tuned is through his website, jasondamico.com. You can also catch him on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. All links are provided below.

Quotes:

13:59
I really didn’t see any problem in not pursuing it. It seemed like a problem if I didn’t pursue it.

27:07
If I can just take a second to try and encourage anybody out there who has been through any type of physical trauma. You know, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and sometimes it could be your greatest asset later on. It just takes time.

32:48
You’re just trying to be authentic and be present at the moment and have the best performance possible.

56:42
I would say, just stay true to yourself, and really take the time to meditate, spend time in prayer, whatever that means for you. And really settle down within yourself and just be okay with the silence.

Quotes

10:04

“…it’s definitely reinforcing for me how important a school community is to the health of a school and of its people.”

25:27

“…they think I’m always insisting that the person who held the gun is the person who has done damage, it’s an important lesson that I’ve learned, but one that we don’t always tell young women for sure.”

35:43

“I think when we are afraid of one thing, in that case, the virus, we become afraid of almost everything.”

53:17

“…that’s a lesson that I had to learn on my own, that not every interaction with love or intimacy is beautiful, and people hurt you.”
