Music

The best kept secret in music

Press


Ambient, the word causes many arguments in the music world. Music that creates and ambience, melodic, mood creating like soft lights, etc..
So, what's it take to create ambience? Synthesizers? Eastern instruments? Flutes? Too many arguments, but one thing is for sure, someone has managed to do it with an acoustic guitar and a beautiful voice; Sheryl Clapton.
Personally I wasn't sure it could be done. But one long night of working online in Santa Fe I received and email asking if I would listen to some music for consideration on my Radio Santa Fe station. Sure, I always go listen, that is how I have found some of the best music I know of out there.
When I arrived, I first listened to "To Earth One Day," the "demo" version. I was hooked, and I had experienced what I consider the first acoustic voice/guitar combination to ever create ambience. Again, that is my opinion, I am not here to debate "what is ambient," just to tell you about some fantastic music.
Then I went on, and the styles changed through the spectrum of music from one end to the other and back again. All great, all special, all just filled with stories and images.
This is music straight from the desert southwest, and it feels like music from the desert. I have spent much of my life in New Mexico where Sheryl is from, and she can really create the feeling of being there. It is part of her, part of her music, part of her soul, and it comes out in the music, grabs you by the soul and takes you there too.
Are you ready for a trip? Want to go to the desert mountains, then go for it, Sheryl can take you there. And it is a nice trip, cool mountain breeze, night skies filled with more starts than you have ever seen, and day skies that stretch far beyond your ability to see.

Take a ride to Santa Fe, walk down a dirt road in the mountains, sit and watch a beautiful sunset, it's all there in the natural ambience she creates.
The "demos" are still there, and they are excellent, but recently Sheryl went into the studio with some great musicians and brought out the new versions of it all. I suggest you drop down and listen to the older versions first, then check out the new stuff. Partake of it all, enjoy!
