MOVING TONE ....the cd

Friends asked me to record some songs, pleading for something which was not a technically cleaned product. So the best of three takes of ten songs is presented here. Many more songs, tracks and versions have been parked for consideration in the future. What you hear is a 'live in the studio performance'. It has subtle blemishes, blips and skirmishes, emphasised by the recording process, from the parting of lips, the creaking of a guitar strap, the reverberating slap of a double bass string, and some vocal notes which could have been pitch perfected, but this was resisted. All these songs capture a moment in life, love and living. Not surprisingly the strongest moment is Movin' Tone. It is where most want to be in life: accepted for who we are, as we are in any given moment. When I sing it, ears prick up, identifying immediately with the peaceful sensory vibration we all yearn for as time ticks by daily. Every time I sing it, it is for those who wish to feel this vibration. It is as I am: as we can be: peaceful in the moment. .........Anne L Ryan
