Rick Sparks "ENDLESS"


Quiet piano to replenish your spirit. "Gorgeous arrangements - simple elegance! I love the pace and feel - you captured the magic of the songs." - Bill Leslie, 2014 World Music Album of the Year. The title for pianist/ composer Rick Sparks’ latest CD release, Endless, was prompted in part by the magnificent picture of a starry night sky over a tropical lagoon, by photographer Ben Canales. Yet, on a deeper level, for Rick, the title also reflects what he refers to as “God’s endless love for us.” This spiritual focus is what is at the heart of this beautiful music that he creates, in his words, “ to feed the soul.” The album opens with Gordon Lightfoot’s 1970 piece “Beautiful.” It then moves into the piece “Dream Angus.” When I first heard the title I immediately thought of last night’s dinner of a dreamy looking steak sitting on my plate and as I closed my eyes, my spirit was indeed replenished and rejuvenated. Whether by the thoughts of last night’s bliss or the beautiful piano music drifting over me, I felt the peace Sparks was trying to convey. Sleeping dreams can be had while we are awake if only we allow ourselves to see the greatness in all that God has provided us; sound and substance, melody and rapture, or even just a steak with some very lovely sauce. Piano and eloquence is the champagne of life.

BIOGRAPHY

Stephen Peppos, album STILL

Stephen Peppos’ highly energetic and at times frantic debut Vertigo was released over 6 years ago and over the years his creations have become increasingly pastoral and reflective. So those of you that are craving the return of the Indiana Jones of New Age music may be disappointed with his latest beauty. Still is an extension of what Peppos began on his prior release Stephen’s Dreams as he continues to focus on a more reflective and meditative music showing that when compared with his debut that stylistically he is a very ambidextrous musician.

VOICES FROM HEAVEN album featured on RADIOnuages


Best-selling Norwegian new age music keyboardist Tron Syversen
(photo left) has teamed with wordless vocalist Runar Halonen (photo right)  to create the powerful ambient recording, VOICES FROM HEAVEN. The voice of Halonen melds perfectly with the synthesizer sounds and sounds almost eerily synthesized itself at times. Hear several tracks from the album now on our International Radio Stream, www.radionuages.com "I have a professional studio where I have recorded a lot of artists and worked with them. The last year I have concentrated on my own music and I am in the process of recording and mixing around 30 pieces of music, most of them aiming at relaxation. Some of the music can also be used for meditation, film music and many other applications. My music has strong melody-lines. I believe that melody is important, and of course, harmony.
Most of my compositions have 3 or 4 themes or parts of 8 or 16 bars and last between 5 and 9 minutes. On most of the parts, I use professional musicians. 3 of the musicians playing on my CD's also play with ”Secret Garden” and one is employed in the Norwegian Opera Orchestra." -Tron Syversen
