'Earthly Angels' is breaking down the boundaries of true country music and taking your emotions under it's wings! - It's all new music for the real America, never recorded before, written entirely from the heart and imagination! - It's shaped by the influence of true 'mountain music' that originated in the hills of east Tennessee. - It's authentic music from the heart and soul... no additives! The arrangements and instrumentation are polished, yet deliver that true dynamic spark that let's you know you have discovered something special. And you have! There is musical variety here for everyone: Real 'mountain music' relating true events from the Great Smokey Mountains ('The Moonshiner's Code' and 'The Brown Mountain Lights'), mainline country and honky tonk ('Yonder Goes A Rich Man' and 'A Cheater'), as well as 'big sky country' tunes to evoke the American West as it came to a close ('Wyoming', 'A Gambler's Life' and 'Canyon Grande'). But you have only begun; there is much, much more! You have to 'crush' on these timely songs that include a fresh view of romance and modern love: - 'We Need To Talk' (a modern love song featuring a brother/sister duet about the 4 words every man hopes NOT to hear!) - 'What's Your Name?' (another romantic duet with a dreamy blues treatment of unexpected romantic electricity) - 'Can You Hear Me Now?' (a current and clever song about 'romantic disconnect') ... as well as the inspiring 'Way Out On The Horizon' to celebrate your own adventurous heart! And you have never heard a romantic tale of chivalry quite like 'The Jester And The King', a fantasy creation of the best in 'Renaissance aire' with a lovely surprise ending for listeners of all ages! The remarkable artistry displayed in the keyboard re-creation of courtly 'pipes' is a delight to sweep you into a land of forever after. ... Listen now! But there is emotional depth and purity in the two featured songs... The title track ('Earthly Angels') is an anthem to dogs that arose from a beautiful dream of insight into the ancient relationship between dogs and humans. It's an inspired gift of melody and lyrics to reveal a deep devotion that began more than ten thousand years ago. You can read details of the remarkable creation of 'Earthly Angels' in the CD insert when your copy arrives! The tender 'Our Two Lives' continues the theme by exploring the 'together yet separate' nature of the dog/human existence. Both emotionally charged songs celebrate the only true interspecies relationship of unconditional love and companionship in Nature: the mutual devotion shared between Human and Dog. These two songs alone are 'worth the price of admission' and will change the heart and mind of all who have a fondness for dogs. If you cry a little, it's just your true love showing through! Those who have adopted and supported efforts to rescue and 'rehome' dogs will feel a part of their own life and emotions revealed in these remarkable musical treasures. They introduce a new genre of music called 'dog songs' as people worldwide awaken to their own humanity through an appreciation of our only true link to Nature. From the 'OurEarthlyAngels' website: 'the Dog: not Man's best friend... Man's ONLY friend in Nature...' There is nothing out there like 'Earthly Angels'. It is a unique gem of creativity that introduces a freshness and authenticity in music for a new era in America. Come along on a new journey of the heart and mind!
