First Light" First Light, " released in October, 2009 is my latest major production. Since my last fully produced album " At the Edge of the Cornish Sea," which was inspired by my first journey to Britain, I slowly cultivated and planted seeds for my latest work.
The album is comprised of many pieces I have waited years to record. I am very excited to present them with the accompaniment of a full ensemble that I have dubbed " The Majestic Ensemble." Pieces include my Flamenco inspired guitar driven set closer
" Spanish Castle," lush atmospheric Harp based " First Light," that was inspired by an incredible sunset I saw in the Jordan Valley in Israel, Celtic inspired " Whispering Trees,"
and a tribute to my late father who sadly passed away a few years ago called
" Song for my Father."
The album is about celebration, mourning, our collective journey on the great wheel of time and cherishing the moment. Instruments include Celtic Harp, guitar, mandocello, violin, keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, voices, penny whistle, clarinet and bowed psaltery. This is music of passion and love.
