Released February 19, 2016
Comprising twelve instrumental selections, the album Distant Horseman is conceptually both a spiritual and a seasonal journey. It begins with introspective and hauntingly beautiful songs such as the Appalachian-tinged A Bend in the River and the Celtic-influenced title song, Distant Horseman. A Night So Cold continues the winter theme, having been actually written on a such a night. The emotional turning point comes with Forgiven, a deeply-inspired orchestral revelation, which leads into the joyful and spring-like Colors Dancing. A series of three love songs follow, including the charming Ecstasy Eyes and the lively 3/4-time Summer’s Dance. The lilting and joyous finale is Luminous Wake, Starlit Sea. More info here.
