Inspirational Journeys Volume 3
||OK I admit it, it has been a long time
coming. But eventually, after various technical problems and other
delays I am really pleased to say that Volume 3 in the Inpirational
Journeys series of guided meditations is now released. As with
Volume 1 it features 2 CDs. The first has two Angel meditations
written by Angel expert Beverley Lewis and narrated by Rachel
Bowles and the second CD has just the music that I composed for
the meditations. Visit the Aquavision
Music site for more details and to buy. Volume 2 has also
been released. The music for that one has been produced by Simon
Cunliffe. Up until the end of August 2008 Aquavision are doing
a special offer where if you buy a copy of Volume 2 and 3 you'll
get a copy of Volume 1 free of charge so worth checking out.
New Site ?
have been desperately trying to get a new site designed but time just
is not on my side and hence why the updates have also been few and
far between. It is something I am acutely aware of and hope to be
in a position to work on it in the near future. Fingers crossed !
Guest Appearance on New Medwyn
Goodall & Terry Oldfield Album
I am really delighted to announce that an album by Medwyn Goodall
& Terry Oldfield entitled "OM" has been released
and features a guest appearance from yours truly!
As most of you know Medwyn has his own label, MG Music, and
he came up with an ambitious project whereby he invited other
artists on his label to produce a backing track of what OM meant
to them, then, Medwyn would add guitar and Terry would add flute
to those tracks. The result would be an album of OM. Although
I am not technically an artist on the label Medwyn kindly invited
me to participate in the project as well.
|I submitted 2 tracks for consideration and was delighted
when he confirmed that one of them had been selected. They had
about 2 hours worth of material submitted by all the artists and
so about half of it could not be included leaving about a 60 minute
While Angels Dream - The New album
Samples from While Angels Dream
Please note that the streaming
realmedia samples are best suited for those visitors with dial
up 56k connections. The streaming mp3 is best suited for those
with broadband connections.
I am delighted to announce that the new album is all but finished.
Just a little tweaking here and there but that's it !
The style of the music is similar to Dolphin Ascension so if
you liked that album then I know you will love this one. It
is my best album yet, even if I do say so myself.
Purity of Light
Wings of Protection
Entering the Realms
While Angels Dream
The Love Within
I am also really thrilled to announce that the album features
a guest appearance from Medwyn Goodall..
Medwyn has guested on "Awakening" and plays Spanish
and electric guuitars &, tabla. I have been a fan of his
music since long before I was a professional musician so to
have him guesting on my album is a real honour and privelage.
Medwyn is responsible for such classic albums as 'Medicine Woman',
'Druid', 'Clan', 'Excalibur', 'Comet' and 'Millennium' to name
but a few.
|The artwork throughout the album was created by
an incredible artist, Sara Perry. I first met Sara at a trade
show in Brighton. During a break in performing I was wandering
around the show and as I passed Sara's stand I was immediately
grabbed by the colour and depth of her artwork and after talking
with her for only a short period of time I knew that she was just
the person I was looking for to create the images for the new
album. To say that the artwork throughout is breathtaking is a
complete understatement and you will see what I mean when you
see the album for yourself.
Inspirational Journeys Reviews
As an artist it is always nice to see reviews of your albums
appear in publications, especially highly respected ones. The
trade magazine "Massage World" has just published
a review of "Inspirational Journeys" which you can
read in full on the Reviews
Also just published is the December 2004 issue of the excellent
"Prediction" magazine and they too have included an
amazingly positive review of the CD. In fact the reviewer, who
is the editor of the magazine, had a really profound experience
with the water meditation which had a really positive effect
on her. Read the full review on the reviews
I am delighted to announce that my new album "Inspirational
Journeys - Volume 1" is now available to purchase.
This album is the first in a series of Guided Meditation CDs
being released on the Aquavision Music label. It's being released
as a double CD with CD1 containing the meditations and CD2 containing
just the music used as background to the meditations. There
are 2 meditations, "The Water Meditation" and "The
I am also delighted that John Bellamy, the owner of the
spiritual retreat in Bournemouth, Dorset "Hamilton
Hall" wrote the original meditations for this album.
I was fortunate to be put in touch with John about a year
ago and is a really wonderful person. He runs a wonderful
retreat and during the autumn and winter months has a
lot of weekend events so it is definitely worth checking
out his web site for more details and having spent weekends
there myself I can personally highly recommend it. It's
great if you just want somewhere to chill out and get
away from everything for a while, or, go on one of the
weekend events where you are bound to meet and mix with
some other likeminded people. Checkout
www.hamiltonhall.info for more details. If you do
go and visit make sure you sit down with John for a chat
on spirituality and things associated with it. He is mind
of information and a great person to talk with.

The meditations were narrated by Tony who has this beautiful
soft Edinburgh accent which is in itself so calming and relaxing
and was the ideal choice to record these meditations. I am definitely
looking forward to recording another volume in this series.
The release of this album does mean though that "While
Angels Dream" the long awaited follow up to "Dolphin
Ascension" will now be held back probably until Spring
next year. Also next year I am hoping to have released another
2 CDs in the "Inspirational Journeys" series and will
be inviting other people to write meditations for these and
I shall be writing some myself too.
