DANDELYE is a culmination of almost five years of exploration and many differing forms. It is the first in what I hope to be an ongoing exploration in finding/creating a space within which opposites, reflections and refractions co-exist, a sonic womb in which the audience can engage in both internal and external dialogue. The title itself reflects this: it is an English spelling of a Thai translation of an English word, dandelion, a flower which in the West is considered a weed, while in Thailand it is a rare flower which grows only in the north; its seeds ever spreading, ever drifting towards terrain old and new.

It’s also particularly special for me to be releasing this to commemorate Pride month as it has taken me many years to find/create my own mental space in which to exist and be at peace, to accept myself, and this album very much reflects my own reflections on this as well.
