I’ve been waiting for this moment for awhile now….
In my last blog I shared that we are about to release some new material and I’m excited to share my 3 new songs which are now available online!
I’ve added a full length version of one of the songs for you in this blog entitled, ‘Edge of Forever’. This song is about the struggle between our spiritual nature and our attachments to this world. It is so easy in this life to become distracted with all sorts of things and forget our spiritual existence. We become paralyzed and entrenched in our daily lives in a web of busyness and neglect our true selves. We wanted to create a song that shows this struggle between these opposing forces and how our desires can taunt and misguide us. Hopefully you will get a sense of that in the lyrics: “Like a vapour in a desert This world is so fleeting
The realm of eternity is everlasting Feel the eternal flame Drawing you into the edge of forever
It calls your name
Raising you up from this mortal world”
These lyrics as well as the rhythm, and the flamenco guitar which is one of my favorite live instruments, make me excited about this song. Eric Harper plays the guitar infusing the song with gorgeous rhythms on top of Jarome’s vibrant composition. It has been a thrilling journey exploring this new style of music, writing original lyrics and incorporating harmonies and rhythm. I’ve been so looking forward to adding more percussion to my music as I’ve been hesitant in the past despite being raised surrounded by African rhythms! Despite a progressive Latin feel, the melodies ended up with a bit of Middle Eastern flavor which I felt added to the diversity.
Listen to the title song, ‘Edge Of Forever’:
This song as well as the 2 other new songs are now available on iTunes internationally, Amazon MP3, and most other stores online.
I’ll be posting more about the other songs, and adding them to my music page with links soon.
Can’t wait to hear what you think of my new music venture!
