First thing you will have to do is un gospel your voicing...  You are chording heavily in the right and playing mostly root - fifth - root in the left...  You have to learn to seek independence in your left hand so that it is not a stone that you throw in there to weigh down the bottom end of things.  Try thinking about just voicing this with JUST the left hand a the primary chording instrument...

Let me see what you get...
