Earth to Sky ...a 2023 release

The album’s collection of pieces features Native American flutes that were recorded over many years both in Canada and the UK. They were inspired by the beauty of this world we share and our connection with the land, the sea, the sky & the air… from gentle strolls along many sea shores, to countless walks in the woods in my homeland of Canada as well those from the ancient forests in Britain.
" It has been a personal inward journey for me and I hope the listener can experience the meditative spirit and healing energy within the music...dd"
I am Quiet, I am still. I am within myself and without. I am connected to all things above and below…inside me. I feel part of the eternal flow. I look in all directions and see the earth and sky fused as one on the distant horizon, bound together endlessly throughout time. It is said in Native American beliefs that the Great Spirit first created Father Sky and Mother Earth, from whence springs the seed of all living things. We are all connected within this cycle of nature, born and nurtured by the Earth, energized with light from the sky, breathing in the air of life, drinking from the healing waters and then at the end, we return to the source.

Never Letting Go ... album 2021

This album came together during the lock down through 2020-21.
The collection of songs capture some of the profound feelings & inner reflections that were stirred while facing oneself during this period of isolation. They are intimate and moving in their essence with a sublime and thoughtful honesty driven by Domenic’s evocative and tender vocals. The album is filled with beautifully crafted songs and harmonies, and compelling performances.
The music explores emotive singer-songwriter pieces such as Faded Stone and Yesteryear to more rhythmic and upbeat songs like the title track, Never Letting Go and the riveting Call for Freedom. The album also includes two new beautiful arrangements of previously recorded songs, Sunlight Skies and As The Skies Turn..
Instruments used include:  acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, Cretan Laouto, harmonica, Native American flutes & drums, cello, violin, accordion and Bodhrans.

Special thanks & gratitude to my dear friends who gave of their time to help complete this latest offering....always d
