SAN FRANCISCO, CA. August 5, 2022 – In the face of an existential crisis, most of us have no idea where to turn. For Ram Dass, music has been his healer. Diving into music and songwriting has given Ram Dass the outlet he needed to process his grief and face the unknown. “Trust in the Blue” is a folk song that carries a message of hope. Finger-picked acoustic guitar, strings, and three-part harmonies reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, and Nash portray both sadness and serenity in this ballad that is at once current and timeless.
“I tried to reconcile the reality that good and bad all happen at once,” says Ram Dass, “that I had no idea what I was doing, and that messing up along the way was absolutely perfect, no matter how uncomfortable.”
Ram Dass is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter who instills a unique potency in his music through collaboration and improvisation that creates art greater than the sum of its parts.
Ram Dass is at the forefront of a movement of musicians who aim to bring healing and solace to the world. In 2021 and 2022, he created a series of musical projects born from his own deeply personal human experience of joy and sorrow as a process of healing after the death of his newborn son. He also produced the score for the film AWAKEN, directed by Bob Degus.
His constant dedication to render the beauty of life’s triumphs, tragedies, and beyond has led him to the world stage. He played at Carnegie Hall and the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, and tours extensively with GRAMMY-nominee Snatam Kaur.
