There's more...

I recently released a vocal version of the track Particles in Space, recorded by my fellow peace activist SEAY with Grammy award winner Armand Hutton on background vocals. The lyrics are timely, what with all this crazy nuclear war posturing among the nations again. It's our featured song this month!

I'm on the Radios!

Thanks to support from new age musicians' coach Suzanne Doucet, and radio promotion by Ed and Stacey Bonk,Ethereal Escapes charted at #5 on Zone Music Reports in June!  You can find our music on Pandora as well, including all of the "prequel," Echappées Ethériques.

In light,

Harmonic Convergence anniversary special!

etherealWe are having a two-for-one sale on an extraordinary set of albums that were inspired by the Harmonic Convergence 30 years ago in 1987...which occurred on my birthday! Pre-order Ethereal Escapes before its release on July 21st ... and I will send you a complementary copy of last year's Echapées Etheriques. These extraordinary albums are about traveling beyond the atmosphere into another dimension beyond the sky...and I can't wait for all of you—and your friends—to hear them.Echapees 2

The album is getting some spectacular reviews!

Steve Sheppard of One World Music says "Radiant....The cleverness of the performers on this album is simply sublime...." 

Bill Binkelman of Zone Music Reporter and Retailing Insight magazine says "Seldom do three musicians work together to such a degree that it almost seems as if they are of the same mind and same body, operating in unison to express a singular musical vision – and the vision represented on this album is daring and beautiful." 

And Candice Michelle of, says, "Uniquely defying strict genre classification, the album’s lovely musical ensemble continually evolves and unfolds throughout, as one instrument often seems to transmute into another. Essentially meditative with a defined experimental edge, ‘Echappees Etheriques’ is sure to appeal to many fans of new age, neoclassical and improvisational instrumental music!"
All you have to do is order Ethereal Escapes and send me your address and proof of purchase... I will send you Echapées Etheriques! (NOTE: I recommend you purchase the hard copy since I will send you a hard copy... you will have a matched set!)
