Lynn Tredeau – Meandering (Spotify)

“Meandering by Lynn Tredeau is a peaceful rendering of the most relaxing of times, a relaxing walk. With no set destination, no goal in mind, just following where your heart takes you. Just take a deep breath, listen to this beautiful piece and walk. ”

-Nagamag.com

Taking a relaxing walk is best done at a meandering pace. No set destination, no goal in mind, just following were your heart takes you. It doesn't matter if you are in the city or a remote country road, just take a deep breath and walk.

This solo piano single has a simple melody and strolling pace. It would fit nicely on any calming, relaxing or instrumental playlist.

Lose yourself in the resonance of composer-pianist Martin Graff’s Trips for Piano: eight evocative piano pieces made to move the soul and light the imagination. Graff’s affecting harmonies, soaring melodies, pensive compositional style, and impassioned playing conjure the most beautiful colors from keys of black and white. The final track, “Sonare,” is an increasingly virtuosic celebration of the full expressive range of the piano, a dramatic crescendo of enveloping sonority…

Anzhelika Kovalenko – Black Earth (Kara Toprak) by Fazil Say | WeLive on Tour | Live im Parktheater (Video)

“-Black Earth- combines the experimental component, which as it is developed, is revealed before the listener. In the begining you are immersed in melodic waves and it seems that the Earth leaves under your feet, but after a couple of minutes, the piano melody absorbs and takes you into oblivion. Awesome journey.”

“-Black Earth- сочетает в себе экспериментальную составляющую, которая по мере развития раскрывается перед слушателем. Сначала вас погружают в мелодический хаос и, кажется, что земля уходит из-под ног, но уже спустя пару минут мелодия фортепиано поглощает и уносит в небытие на своих волнах. Потрясающее путешествие.”

“-Bonum Et Malum- сочетает в себе уникальные инструменты и приёмы свойственные жанру New Age. Плавный, умиротворяющий темп, гипнотическая, неземной красоты мелодия. Музыка -Mythos- это релакс и медитация для успокоения вашей души.”

-Nagamag.com

Mythos has been creating timeless, ethereal music fusing electronic beats with vocalese, piano, acoustic guitar, synths and sounds from around the world. 2021 marks the 25th Anniversary for the duo of Bob D’Eith (producer and piano) and Paul Schmidt (acoustic guitar). This year we are pleased to release “XXV” a 14-track album including 5 new tracks and 9 fully remastered classics. “Bonum et Malum”, the third single, explores the dichotomy between good and evil, sadness and joy.

www.facebook.com/mythosmusic/

Mythos enjoys a very dedicated international fan base with over 2 million streams per year.

Mythos can be described as ethereal, ambient instrumental music focusing on acoustic guitar, piano and vocal melodies. Added to this mix are hypnotic electronic beats, orchestral arrangements and world instrument flavors. Mythos has always had the goal of creating music without borders; creating a blend of sounds from all over the planet.

​Mythos has had a very successful and colorful history. Nearly 25 years ago, Bob D’Eith (piano) and Paul Schmidt (guitar) decided to create some music with the idea of composing for film and television. As the partners worked together and brought in other performers, they realized that there was something special about the music. The music stood on its own. Mythos was born.

“Introspection” was the bands first independent release. With the unexpected commercial radio success of “November”, CDs sold in the thousands. That record won a West Coast Music Award and was nominated for a JUNO Award in 1997. The artist secured a number of television placements including the show “Due South”. The album was released in the USA on the boutique San Francisco label XDOT25.

The follow-up album release for “Iridescence,” was happily interrupted when XDOT25 was able to secure a deal for Mythos with Higher Octave/Virgin/EMI in Malibu, California. The addition of Gil Bruvel’s stunning artwork to a re-release of the best of the first two albums led to the release of “Mythos” in 1998. This record was a huge success, eventually selling over 50,000 CDs and charting on Billboard Magazine’s New Age chart for eight months.

Riding on the wave of Mythos’ success, Higher Octave went on to release “Reality of a Dreamer” (2000) and “Eternity” (2002), both of which charted in Billboard for months on end. One of the highlights was the featuring of Mythos music in the 2000 Victoria’s Secret runway show in Cannes, France. At the time, this was the largest streaming event ever seen on the internet. “Eternity” won a Western Canadian Music Award for Best Instrumental Artist in 2003.

With the explosion of downloading and the merger of major labels internationally, Mythos became independent again in 2005. This did not stop the artist who released “Purity” in 2006 on Pacific Music/Warner (Canada) and Alula (Allegro USA).

In 2010, Bob decided that it was time to start working on new material. The first effort was to re-mix a favorite track that never made major label release. “Rain” was released as a single in that year.

Over the next two years, Bob and Paul worked on new material and in late 2012 were able to get together to record a new album. Joined by new guest artist Mother Mother’s Jasmin Parkin, “Journey” is an album that reflects both where Mythos has been and where it is going. On April 30 2013, Mythos “Journey” was released to a patient and loyal fan base.

​Mythos was very proud to released the EP "Eros" in late 2018 and will be releasing a 25th Anniversary Album "XXV" in March 2021. First single "Legacy" is out now.

Maji – Seven (Spotify)

“It was unexpectedly pleasant for us to hear echoes of the good old New Age in the new Maji album - Healing, Vol. 1. Thick layers of ambient fog and drone only add to the overall picture. Special attention is drawn to the fantastic vocals that came to us as if from fairy tales. Incredible!”

“Неожиданно приятно было для нас услышать отголоски доброго, старого New Age в новом альбоме Maji - Healing, Vol. 1. Густые слои туманов эмбиента и дрона лишь дополняют общую картину. Особое внимание к себе притягивает фантастический вокал, который пришёл к нам словно из сказок. Невероятно!”

-Nagamag.com

Seven is a Spa New Age song. This is strictly for relaxation and meditation.

Mars Lasar – Glacier Point (Spotify)

“Glacier point belongs to Mars Lasar album Yosemite and one thing is certain for the enthousiastic listener of new age classical music, he is going to experience a masterfuly balanced composition of string arrangements, smooth percussion, tribal drums embellished with natural sound effects creating a perfect fall canvas”

-Nagamag.com

About This Song:
Yosemite also has its reflective moments best-heard courtesy of the opening chords of “Glacier Point”. Initiated with gorgeous string arrangements, the song is then driven by the intricate yet smooth percussion arrangement. Employing flutes, synths, some tribal drums and the occasional natural sound effect (thankfully, not used constantly to the point of saturation), Glacier Point makes for a very good backdrop to backroad drives, amidst the rapidly changing leaves of fall.

About Mars Lasar
Born in Germany and raised in Australia, Mars Lasar is a prolific keyboardist and composer. Predominantly electronic, his music also contains elements of jazz, pop, world, new age and rock. Mars started playing piano at 11 years old, and over a few years of extensive classical and jazz training, he rapidly became drawn to all kinds of music.

Fiona Joy Hawkins Interview on Nagamag

New Age


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Fiona Joy Hawkins:
New Age, Celtic, Neo-Classical or just romantic piano :) A unique defining style puts music outside the pigeon holes or genre descriptions.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Fiona Joy Hawkins:
I was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at the age of eight and found solace in the piano. I buried my head in music, found my calling and discovered a gift that allowed me to believe in my own possibilities. I went into the recording studio for the first time in my 30s and have never wanted to do anything else since.
Im classically trained, love touring and performing and hail from a small village in Australia. I want to reach other people and turn them onto the idea that music has health and connection benefits and the power to make our lives better.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Fiona Joy Hawkins:
My Mother was 17 when I was born and my Grandmother moved in to help raise me. She arrived with an old German iron frame piano and it was pure magic to me from the first note that I touched. I literally fell in love with the endless possibilities for sound and its all I have ever truly wanted to do - be a musician.


Nagamag:
What advice would you give newcomers to the music industry.

Fiona Joy Hawkins:
Firstly, hone your skills and learn your craft. After you have that in check, if you want to compose you need to have something to say. Being a composer is about story telling and that comes from the depth of your soul , the ups and downs you have experienced in life. Regarding the business of music.... that is the conundrum we all face, be prepared to work seven days a week for little money except the satisfaction that you are doing something you love and touching lives with your music.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Fiona Joy Hawkins:
Wivajoy "Warm Glow"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Fiona Joy Hawkins:
FLOW "Promise"

Lynn Tredeau Interview on Nagamag

New Age


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Lynn Tredeau:
Neo-classical, Contemporary Solo Piano, New Age Piano


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Lynn Tredeau:
I began piano lessons at 5 years of age and that opened a doorway to learning many other instruments including flute, clarinet, saxophone, guitar & pipe organ. After many years of teaching piano, I retired to pursue a life long dream to create original music. My debut album Echoes of Life was released in 2015 followed later that same year by a Christmas album Snowlight (A Christmas Memory), which was awarded Best Holiday Album at Enlightened Piano Radio. Over the next 4 years I released 4 additional albums and 12 single releases. My music has been featured on about 6 compilation albums and received many nominations. Two albums were awarded Best Solo Piano Album at Zone Music Reporter, Fellowship of Solitude in 2018 and All the Pieces in 2019. A track (Photos Without a Memory) from my sixth album was also chosen as Track of the Year by One World Music Radio. My single releases have allowed me to collaborate with other musicians and try my hand at other styles of music.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Lynn Tredeau:
My father loved the music of Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. Every Sunday, he would cook breakfast for the family and sing along to his favorite records. My other childhood memory was practicing on my old piano in the basement and my mother would call down the stairs to "play her favorite" which was Clair De Lune. To this day I can hear her voice when I play that song.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Lynn Tredeau:
John Denver "Annie's Song"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Michele McLaughlin "A Beautiful Distraction"
