Creating new music is like an awakening... a dive into a hidden part of yourself that re-ignites at the touch of inspiration... like the first drops of rain caressing a dormant seed and bringing it to life. Sometimes it's completely spontaneous and just appears for seemingly no reason. Other times it's triggered by a deeply personal or emotional experience. With the following collection of pieces, both applied.
Welcome to the first section - the first "suite" - of my new album The Blue Horizon, the first collection of original music I've released since 2021. This album comes to you in 3 parts...
Suite 1 - The Awakening
Suite 2 - The Experience (which will feature music I wrote recently in the Simpson Desert in Outback Australia)
and Suite 3 - The Knowing
From the conception of an idea ("The Awakening" and "Origination") to the still and precious moment before it comes into being ("Prelude: Before the Light") to the sacred ceremony on Coolum Beach that inspired "Dawn Awakening", these pieces represent my musical and emotional evolution over the last few months. Then add the profoundly beautiful moment that created "In the Gentle Arms of Love", the quest to find calm within chaos ("The Stillness Within the Storm") and the arrival at a new place of sanctuary ("A Calm Sea") and Suite #1 is complete.
And as with every album, every musical adventure, I feel I've learned as much as I've created. I've learned it's about finding the joy in evolution, in uncertainty and in sponteneity. It's about the journey as much as the destination, and most of all, it's about doing it all with Love.
So I now invite you to explore "The Blue Horizon: Suite #1 - The Awakening". Thanks to my musical collaborator Nathan Seiler for crafting the deep, resonant and wonderful piano sound you're about to hear. And most of all thanks to you - for listening, for feeling, and for continuing to share my journey.
