Track Evaluation: Michael Dulin-My Beloved

Michael Dulin's new album My Beloved is set for release in January of 2015. The title track is most impressive and puts the album into proper perspective while delivering the intended message.

Dulin's piano expertise brings forth images of what commitment and love should be. Without words you would think that would be difficult to express however he gets it done through his nimble fingers.

Sit and back and listen to "My Beloved" now.

Holiday Music Stream: Patty Mattson-All The Wonders of This Holiday

"All The Wonders of This Holiday" can be appreciated for many reasons...miracles, the wonder in a child's eyes, the caring and love that people offer to strangers in desperate need of a warm smile, all of this and more is the true meaning of Christmas.

I heard that warmth and joy in Patty Mattson's voice with  "All The Wonders of This Holiday." With some country charm that only this singer can bring forth with her new Holiday album All The Wonders of This Holiday, this track will bring joy to your soul and put a smile in your heart.

Patty Mattson is my star this Holiday so no rating is necessary for this one, listen and enjoy!

Track Evaluation: Kathryn Kaye-Patterns Of Sun And Shade

Kathryn Kaye's music is highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike. The new release Patterns Of Sun And Shade, due out January 1st 2015, is destined to bring more accolades to the artist.

I thought it was appropriate to introduce the beautiful title track to an audience anticipating more of her wonderful sounds of grace articulated through the ivory keys.

Sit back, relax and enjoy "Patterns Of Sun And Shade," it is most certainly a spiritual experience that will lead down the path of enlightenment.
