Wintertime CD              



  "Mountain De Light"
  "Snow River"
  "Silent Dawn"



This unique album is designed to feature the clear natural sound of the wooden acoustic guitar.  Each guitar is separated to it's own speaker in the stereo spectrum, as a warm camp fire would sit between friends.  Recorded as if your ear is almost touching the guitar's sound hole, you can hear the wooden creaks and string slides carefully paint musical pictures of quiet mountain mornings and serene winter settings

Inspired by the Light of Life, the winding current of Snow River Wintertime runs smoothly, and subtlely blends nature's musical colors into the mindscape.  Like the artistry of Stephen Lyman paintings, experiential views ease your spirit and allow ample time to reflect on those things that are beautiful.

Whether you're lounging in a metropolitan high-rise or warming a mountain cabin, Snow River Wintertime will take you to a world of dramatic sensitive touch.  Your spirit will hear original melodies and the guitar will encompass your heart and allow you the luxury to stop and dream.

High emotion, intimate sensitivity, captured in a moment of time, like a wild flock of geese artfully engineering a quiet landing on a river of snow.
