A Preview of the CD Glittering Cities by Susan Raven

SUSAN RAVEN
"I write all my songs on a vintage Martin 12-string guitar. It is an entire band in one instrument, the harmonics and drones that spin out from the strumming suggest many of the overdubs that follow. I take a song and hone it until the base-metal turns to gold. I write lyrics to trigger emotions, memories and inspiration in people and as my craft has matured, so a strong individual sound has emerged. My music has been variously described as Cosmic World Fusion, Space Rock and Ethno-Pop."

Susan Raven
Behind Your eyes (Excerpt)
The opening song of urban angst versus angelic guidance sweeps in on a tide of layered 12 string guitars. The voice leads you through emotions and imagery that tug at far memories in the sub-conscious leading you sonically and phonetically into a soul mood of optimism. added to station 12/4/2007 8:28:31 PM

Here To Be (Excerpt)
Enhanced by the gorgeous west African bassline of Hilaire Penda (Salif Keita Band), this song calls on us to revere our planet and acknowledge her consciousness. Swinging over 12 string guitars and quirky keyboards is a tale of how we 'zip' ourselves into different coloured skins each time we incarnate to take on the task at hand. added to station 12/4/2007 8:29:10 PM

Hope In The Morning (Excerpt)
A catchy guitar based pop song, girl can't live with relentless cynicism any longer, so calls her boy to search for his heart, end their war and sign a peace treaty... great groove, great melody, great radio play! added to station 12/4/2007 8:29:50 PM

Glittering Cities (Excerpt)
A splendid mixture of sitars, dance rhythms and mantras, a glorious tale of spiritual flight on a rich, melodic top line. Featuring David Rhodes (guitarist with Peter Gabriels band) this track is a rich and full journey of seven minutes plus of sumptuous melody and ethereal imagery. added to station 12/4/2007 8:30:34 PM

Stack Your Guns (Excerpt)
Inspired by meeting with and hearing the experiences of refugees from Afghanistan, this song is an earnest prayer for all those at war to desist and seek another way. It is a powerful and relevant anthem sung over rolling drums, again featuring David Rhodes on Guitar.     added to station 12/4/2007 8:31:09 PM

Saturn (Excerpt)
A haunting, turbulent piece that starts with a chant calling the names of seven planets described in Rudolf Steiner's Occult Science as the seven incarnations of the being known as Earth. Written in a minor key the glissando guitar sends you out into far space and Hilaire Penda's West African bass line drives the spacecraft on a gorgeous groove. added to station 12/4/2007 8:31:48 PM

Lake (Excerpt)
Imagine the fast flowing springtime rivers, the rushing clouds and the rooks swirling around the empty branches... a love song with an Arthurian theme sung over an enchanting orchestral arrangement including violins, cellos, harmonium, oboe, piano and acoustic guitar. added to station 12/4/2007 8:32:23 PM

I Think of You (Excerpt)
Susan's beautifully haunting vocal dances over an ebb and flow of 12-string guitars and Irish whistles. The engine-room of the song features the innovative bass playing of West African Hilaire Penda weaving his magic around programmed quirky, tin-soldier drums.     added to station 12/4/2007 8:33:04 PM

The Lens (Excerpt)
A powerful and graceful song. A close mic on the voice brings a discource on the enduring Divinity in all of us, a fine performance on Irish Whistle by Robert White strikes a poignant chord in the emotions. added to station 12/4/2007 8:33:35 PM
