 Sir Gant & The Invisible Force

How did this new album and overall concept for it come about,
and what are your ultimate goals with it?

This album is a culmination of several things that have happened
in my life to this point. I chose the title “The Journey” because it
represented all of these experiences. I believe that “life is a journey,
not a destination. It’s a continuous, evolving, learning process,
that takes many unexpected turns, that you have to be flexible &
adaptable in order to navigate without losing your way. I’ve had
many incredible experiences and challenges, from being adopted as
an infant by 2 incredible parents, to being a single parent with my
daughter, my son suffering a serious spinal chord accident while
playing college basketball, to finding my birth mom after decades
of not knowing who or where she was. All of these things have
brought me here today & have shaped me as a person & musical
artist. So what you are hearing is my “Musical Journey” which is not
one dimensional or really definable by traditional categorizations.
My ultimate goal for the album is for it to reach as many people
as possible and bring the love and joy to them that went into the
making of this album by everyone involved.

What in your life outside of your music drives you in a creative
sense?

Connecting with people from all around the world. Traveling opens
you up to all types of experiences and you realize how amazing and
precious life is.

What would you define as the most life-changing event so far in
your musical career?

When my son was injured playing basketball at Cornell Univ. He
sustained a serious spinal chord injury and we were told he might be
a quadriplegic. I spent 6 months, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day with
him, rehabbing and taking care of him. Fortunately he has made a
complete recovery, and is living a normal life. Through his courage
and great attitude during his recovery, I was inspired to bring that
same attitude toward creating this project .

What’s your favorite non-music activity?

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through exercise, sports and proper diet. I also enjoy cooking.

What’s your favorite charity or cause you work for, and why?

Currently I am devoting my energy and time to 2 projects. One is
called Africa Live, which donates musical instruments and equipment
to Africa, most specifically Ghana. I will also be traveling there to
conduct seminars & classes in computer technology for music and
production, as well as musical instruction.

The second project is very close to my heart. I am starting a nonprofit
company that will help adopted children & adults find their
birth parents. In addition to finding them, providing counseling to
help both parent & child develop and sustain a healthy relationship.

What are some of the most important goals you have for yourself
in the next five to ten years?

To continue to evolve as an artist and bring fresh new ideas to the
music that defies categories. Also to produce and develop new talent
and give exposure and a viable outlet for interesting new music.

What is “The InVisible Force” and why the choice of that name?

Known by different names, chi, prana, the unseen creative force that
gives life to all things. Being fortunate enough to travel the world,
you see, hear and feel things that your spirit knows and recognizes
as universal and it resonates within all people, it’s connects all
people. This force has brought some of the greatest musicians and
friends together to help me create this music. It’s humbling and
awesome to experience this great unseen force and power.

I liked the name because it kept coming up as the connection
between myself & how the music was created and will be
represented in live situations. It’s really something much greater
than me, or any plans that I could have made.

Herbie Hancock said
to me recently, “I’ve finally learned to get out of my own way”,
which I found very profound. Allowing things to flow opens you up
to a much greater experience, beyond anything you could calculate
or plan.
