Musician, Laura Sullivan, Serves Up a Feast of Joy and Love
Belmont, California, April 1, 2007—New Age Artist, Laura Sullivan, today releases her fourth CD on her independent label, Sentient Spirit Records. This new album is titled Feast of Joy & Love. An enticing banquet for the ears, it features a blend of piano with ethereal vocals and other acoustic instruments such as violin, saxophone and percussion. In a creative twist to the standard record organization, the songs are set up as a menu including appetizers, first & second courses and dessert. The music is relaxing and soothing while delving into heartfelt realms inspired by Laura Sullivan’s personal life experiences connected with joy and love.
The songs on Feast of Joy & Love consist of Laura’s own compositions along with several classical adaptations which have surprising variations. The opening track, a medley of Bach favorites, is titled Bouquet of Bach. Waltzing with Beethoven, adapted from the Sonata Pathetique, is changed to a new time signature of ¾ time. Albinoni’s Secret Smile, is an arrangement of the traditional Albinoni’s Adagio (sometimes referred to as the saddest song in classical music) with an unexpected joyful key change. Ala M’Ode to Joy, based on Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, also astonishes us with an altered time signature to ¾ time. Also included among the delicacies is a new arrangement of Greensleeves using lyrics from a mysterious dialect. Laura Sullivan employs her sensitive piano techniques that have appeared on her previous albums, and makes her vocal debut with rich layers of angelic harmony in Feast of Joy & Love.
Raised in a musical family, Laura began playing piano at 4 years old. At age 8 she was writing compositions and by 18 had composed a body of work, including 6 feature length musicals for children which were performed with Laura’s troupe, Star Company Children’s Theater. Laura is a member of the piano artist collective Whisperings founded by composer, pianist and radio host, David Nevue. Laura has released 4 CD’s of her original New Age music. Two of her releases were produced by renowned artist Chris Camozzi.
RJ Lannan of the New Age Reporter writes, “Laura Sullivan’s music shimmers with an effervescent vitality.” Laura’s release, Mystical America, was designated the number one best New Age album of 2004 by Bill Binkelman of Wind and Wire.
