I am deeply religious but tend to experience God more powerfully in nature, particularly at seashores and in horizons, than in buildings and books. The music and stories on this site are intended to reflect that tendency of mine more consciously and intentionally than my previous work.


The purpose of this site is not simply to share my music, however. In addition to being the title of a song I wrote, recorded, and released in 1999, using the stage name Ali Ibn Musa on my first CD, Musical Storytelling, the url of this website, "God House Ain't Got No Wall," is now also the name of a nascent organization for promoting inter-religious understanding through collaborative projects and networking across religious boundaries to meet common goals, such as addressing homelessness.
