Perhaps the best way to describe this fourth album from Murray Kyle is as a soundscape created by the mix of guitar, vocals and an eclectic collection of eastern and western instruments, blended with a masterful hand, to create music designed to reach deep within.
The album is unashamedly a devotional collection presented in several styles of music – from an almost folk-like rhythm to a more up market pulse, with a hint of Jazz or more possibly blues in there somewhere, all woven together with Kyle’s husky vocals.
From the first exquisite note Scorpion Moon, Sora takes us into a world of fairy tales, hero’s and villain’s, all with an overriding pulse encompassing so many differing genres of music in that it cannot be attributed to one particular style; perhaps a unique style of her own with the rhythms of so many styles melding to produce a blend with an almost hypnotic seduction of sound.
The deep rich sound of the voices of the St Petersburg Chamber choir envelop you in the most relaxing of sounds as they present a choral repertoire from masters such as Rachmaninov, Kalinnikov and Liadov written especially for the a cappella sound of bass voices.
From the opening note of this latest album Lia Scallon’s pure voice captivates and after that is it total immersion into sound, gentle movement and tranquillity.
Taken from the sacred healing vibrations of ancient and long gone civilizations the tonal sounds encourage a deep sense of peace and healing to the soul. The vibrations, not only of the voice, but also the combinations of instruments used meld into one almost ethereal offering.
Ancients and of more recent times moderns, have and are coming to understand the power of music in healing of all aspects, therefore this gift from Scallon of Crystal Keys should be used and listened to with reverence and love to work only the magic divine music can create in your soul.
Divine alchemy is the uppermost ingredient in this reflective devotional created in homage to mother earth and the healing that is to be found through both time and nature.

Balance, or the ying and yang of life, is the theme of this light and gentle offering from acclaimed pianist Lisa Downing. Laughter, frustration, love, joy, pain and pleasure are all emotions experienced in life and it is indicative of Dowling’s talent that she has managed to portray all these changes and feelings over the twelve tracks in the album. Each track is composed with the reverence of life and all its quirks as the underpinning emotion.
