As a review from Jennifer Carlton said: "Earth Songs," a fitting name for this Artist. As you will begin to understand why; after listening to just one of his musical creations. Arthur, the Man behind "Earth Songs" has a simple "less is more" approach to his music...in that there are only a hand full of instruments used. Traditional instruments such as the organic sounds of the Cedar Flute, Rain stick, and the occasional Drum beat! But not a detail is missed, and each song is completely unique, with a great depth in sound and spirit! This "Album" of 12 tracks features his inspiring performance of "The Native Flute," and is strongly influenced by the essence of nature. This is one down to Earth spiritual journey through the power of "Native Music," in it's purest form...and will be sure to awaken all the senses! As a Fan of "Earth Songs" for almost 3 Years now, I can easily say that I 'Highly Recommend' a listen to this Artist's work! As this is a GREAT Album, for those seeking true music to meditate by!
