David W. Donner- Eterna

Where stylistic acoustic guitar pioneer Michael Hedges had his tavern regular “Barbara”, and Willie Nelson has his tattered and road worn “Trigger”, ambient acoustic guitarist David W Donner has his Eterna.  Granted, Eterna is more properly the manufacturer's model name, and less a pet name—but the individuality the artist gives it is no less storied and remarkable. “In and of itself, it's nothing special; it's an inexpensive Yamaha model,” Donner explains in the album liner notes, “[it] was a Christmas present from my grandmother. Though it will never sound like a high end Taylor, after the wood has aged over two decades, it has developed a much deeper and richer tone.” 

David W. Donner's first full-length album of all original music, Eterna is an eclectic instrumental acoustic guitar recording, combining modren fingerstyle, meditative, and blues elements to create David's unique sound.

Majestica - In the Midst of Stars

Reminiscent of natural wonder yet imbued with a profound sense of human emotion and intimacy, “In the Midst of Stars” seems to move metaphorically between dawn, dusk and midnight, always retaining a sense of mystery throughout. Gorgeous and innovative, this outstanding collaboration between two amazing talents (Cass Anawaty, Sherry Finzer) already sits among this year’s favorites, and is sure to have wide-ranging appeal among fans of chillout, ambient and contemporary instrumental music. ~Candice Michelle

Scott Cossu - Safe in Your Arms

"Safe In Your Arms" is the long-awaited new release by pianist/composer Scott Cossu. One of the founders of the new age music genre (giving it a jazz and world music influence) and one of the first artists to join the Windham Hill roster of artists, Cossu has had a long and varied career. It is interesting to note that early on, George Winston opened for Scott in concert and the two toured and performed together for several years. The music on Safe In Your Arms is a combination of new compositions and newly re-recorded pieces from older albums that have gone out of print.

Sherry Finzer, Darin Mahoney, Will Clipman - Trialogue

Imagine a breath of ancient breeze stirring the fabled Aeolian strings, accompanied by the rhythm of distant thunder and the melody of gentle rain on your window pane, and you’ll have an inkling of the subtle, sophisticated sounds of Trialogue: timeless music as old as the earth and sky, yet as fresh and new as tomorrow’s sunrise. Featuring international award-winning multi-flutist and Heart Dance Records recording artist Sherry Finzer playing concert C, alto and bass flutes; luthier and guitarist Darin Mahoney playing his self-built koa and cedar acoustic guitars; and seven-time GRAMMY® Nominee Will Clipman playing a pan-global palette of drums and percussion, this genre-transcending trio blends the depth of classical discipline with the down-home soulfulness of American roots music and the percolating pulse of worldbeat to create an entirely original sound that is at once soothing and energizing. While the music of Trialogue richly rewards contemplative listening, it also extends an irresistible invitation to celebratory dance.
