Sananda Francesco Maitreya, (Artist Name: Sananda Maitreya) was born from the smouldering ashes of a former artists heart who had undergone severe trauma, lost his will and prayed devotedly to his creator to restore him to a new life. After much meditation, in 1995, at the age of 33, earth years, his prayers were answered and he was given a new consciousness. The name given to this consciousness was Sananda which means 'one who walks with light', Maitreya which means 'among the sons of God'. He presents his music as POST MILLENNIUM ROCK because he feels that it is more inclusive and representative of the vision his spirit inspires him to share. He inherited a body born March 15th 1962, in Harlem-Manhattan-New York City and married for the first time in 2003 his wife and long time friend Francesca Francone Maitreya. He lives full time in Milano-Italy and looks after his own affairs. He says that he had his light switched on at the age of 2 by the music of the Beatles and has been a fool for music ever since. "I have suffered music and she has suffered me and there is no doubt that she has seen my willingness to bear her love even in the darkest hours and because of that we have earned one another's trust and our bond is close and deep. I would die for the music and in fact already have". He plays the four basic instruments of Rock: drums, bass, guitar and keyboards; as well as a few others instruments besides and can never remember a time when music wasn't playing in his head! From the beginning of his professional career he has written and produced his musical affairs. He was and remains a fan of all kinds of music and is committed to completing his own unique vision of what music can be as filtered through his own set of circumstances and the truth of his own nature. In describing his music he quotes from one of his idols, the great American Prophet and Poet Walt Whitman "Listen, I will be honest with you. I do not offer the old smooth prizes, but offer rough new prizes". His hobbies include whatever explains beauty and allows him to put more of it back into the world of wonders. Once upon a time, an artist, a fish, woke up to find himself in an era swimming in various kinds of music, the best of which touched him as a fish swimming in water feels everything that the water contains. He decided to take elements of all that moved him, wrap it around his vision and call it: 'POST MILLENNIUM ROCK' (PMR!). PMR acknowledges with respect all that has gone before it, adds new strains and continues it passing it forward. PMR recognizes no valid ethnic, gender, age or language barriers and recognizes that its origins belong to the people. It is by its nature a hybrid form just as pre-millenium rock was/is and so contains aspects when inspired of country, soul, gospel, jazz, 'world', hip-hop, classical, reggae, and anything that moves the spirit. Its main elements are heart and soul (the soul that is present in all true music, that comes from the heart, not the marketing category of soul). Its nature is passion, courage and curiosity and it acknowledges no rules and will not be tamed merely for easy corporate consumption. It is its own beast and shall remain so. Its purpose is to lead the listener back to the garden in their heart, to provoke the mind into seeing fresh new shapes in order to encourage fresh new visions and PMR has a preference (though no rules) for natural instrumentation played by living beings praising spirit and humanity through their chosen intruments. This particular fish heard the call of Sananda in 1995, at the age of 33. And he has been one of his voices since. He was also instructed to use the new music he would be given by Sananda not as a further barrier of separation, but as a call to community and shared values, because we are all one!
