A listener wrote, “No matter what kind of day I’m having, I find myself relaxing to this amazing music — gentle and yet so powerfully uplifting. Before I know it, I am smiling.” No wonder Kern’s gorgeous original music is listened to by millions of people all over the world.
“(Kern’s) sole focus is the gently rhythmic, deeply melodic, and healing music that defines the classic new age genre.” — Jonathan Widran, All Music Guide
Known for his beautiful solo piano works, Chappell branches out to include strings, percussion, woodwinds and brass on Saturday’s Rhapsody; music sure to kickoff a blissful weekend. From the stirring first cuts, to the cheery “Fancy Pants,” from the airy “A Weekend to Remember,” to the dusky feel of “One Last Time,” Saturday’s Rhapsody evokes many moods to coincide with every aspect of a spontaneous Saturday to remember.
A fan captures Chappell’s Michigan summers inspiration for this album: “A series of musical vignettes that recall the innocence of childhood, almost magical in transporting the listener to that lost and happy time. All top quality and refreshingly engaging…”
Dream Spiral reflects the vision of a dream that Hilary Stagg experienced in which he created “an uplifting musical tapestry.” Through the gentle power of harp, accompanied by violin, keyboards and guitar, Stagg’s vision comes to life with a deeply heart-felt sensitivity.
Emmy award-winning composer Gary Remal Malkin paints the Smokies in orchestral colors, adding touches of mountain fiddle, Native American drums, and piano notes as soft and bright as raindrops. Appalachian melodies drift through like figments, presences from another time. A nostalgic solo flute calls out above shadowed chords, then soars over vast panoramas, propelled by distant drums. Evocative and deeply inspiring, this contemporary music captures the dignity of our American ancestry and heralds a vision of hope for the future.
