A Day On Venus




“A Day On Venus” is a collection of 18 musical pieces drawn from celestial and mystical inspiration.The planet, Venus, with its unique aspects, symbolizes many things. Venus is known as the “Goddess of Love and Beauty.” The Rose of Venus is the sacred geometry pattern the orbit of Venus forms as she dances with Earth.The planet’s own orbit creates the special and sacred mandala. And a day on planet Venus is leisurely, as the planet spins slowly and clockwise, taking 243 Earth days.Therefore, a day on Venus is longer than its year and it has a sunrise every 117 Earth days. The Rose of Venus, depicted in the album art for “A Day On Venus,” is a replica of the sacred geometric pattern created by the 8-year cycle of Venus orbiting the Earth, forming a perfect five petal rose. This design, much like the music on this album, is imbued with the healing energies of Venus, aligning with universal love, compassion,and harmony. The music on this album is unique, not just from track to track, but also within the form of each piece.

A Blueprint for Life





The album “A Blueprint for Life” presents five acoustic guitar-centered works that are richly layered in both sound and symbolism. The titles offer poetic yet practical renderings of the architectural details found in a home: Open Window, Hidden Lines, Spiral Staircase, Hearth, and Elevations. Musically, the sound from the guitars range from shiny and brilliant to dark and velvety, exploring timbres and moods with moments of density then space. While the first four tracks engage the listener by weaving complex melodic patterns, the final piece, Elevations, brings the foundation of these structures in time to simple, singular guitar notes plucked gently over ambient layers, lightly introduced in the other tracks, but now quite present. Energetically, a blueprint refers to the design of one’s life plan and purpose. This home houses music from my heart and soul.

New Ages Notes Review

2023

Luminous Fields





This is a beautiful, meditative instrumental piece featuring a Native American flute. The long, breathy notes are sustained over tonal shifts that wrap a comforting, peaceful layer around the listener. Some delicate notes from a piano are eventually introduced, but the flute remains the focus, and the relaxation, the purpose.

“This lush recording highlights the sheer talent of the artist, she manifests such a deep well of emotion within it, and the vibrational tone of the arrangement is deeply palpable, and incredibly moving.” Steve Sheppard, OWMR

“The peaceful and comforting notes delivered on the flute and piano surround you and create a serene world around you where you begin to discover absolute peace. The extent of relaxation you feel is awesome, and is of a rare and redeeming kind.” Vivek Kumar, New Music Alert
