Ali Murray

March 2nd, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Ali Murray Profile

Ali Murray is a solo musician hailing from the cold and rainy Isle of Lewis in northern Scotland. Equal parts grandiose and humble, effervescent and melancholy, spatial and solitary, Ali’s dark blend of ambient folk, atmospheric post-rock, and dream pop is as beautifully depressing as it is introspectively invigorating.

His lyrics, which speak of longing, loss, and various degrees of emotional turmoil we can all relate to in some way, speak volumes themselves but are also wonderfully complimented by moving melodies and expansive keys; Ali proves himself to be a creator of an incredibly vast array of sound for a single person. An artistic channeler of all spectral ranges of human emotion, Ali Murray will appeal to any and all folks looking for that faint, but visible light at the end of the tunnel.

Anilah

March 2nd, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Anilah Profile

Anilah is the solo project of vocalist and composer Dréa Drury, a musician and sound therapist based in the Selkirk Mountains of Western Canada. Her inspirations draw from traditional shamanic sound practices and nature based ritual. She has studied the art of using the voice as a healing modality with sound healers and shamans from across North America. This has led to her own exploration of the esoteric application of sound, which she now weaves into the tapestry of her musical expression. Her compositions are a fusion of dark ambient and chants, with elements of progressive metal and visionary soundscapes. Despite extensive musical training in many traditions, she acknowledges her connection to nature – and moments of sensory, mental, and spiritual absorption – to be her primary teacher and source of knowledge.

Fascinated with the potentials of sound from an early age, most of Dréa’s inspirations and teachings come from experiences she had growing up in a remote area of British Columbia. Silence and the music of nature have nurtured Dréa’s intimate understanding of sound since birth. She believes that everything about sound and music can be learned from the observation of Gaia, and can be accessed if one listens carefully enough in a receptive state of silence. After studying composition at a traditional college, while recording and performing original material, Dréa’s intrigue of music led her to study esoteric applications of sound. While living in San Francisco, she completed a certificate in Psychoacoustics (the effects of music and sound on the human nervous system) and Sound Healing from the Globe Institute, as well as studies in esoteric music theory and shamanic sound practices.

She has trained under some of the leading figures in the field of Psychoacoustics and Sound Therapy including Tom Kenyon, Joshua Leeds, Jill Purce, and the Kairos Institute. During recent years, she has also dedicated herself to the study of North Indian Classical vocal music and Sound Yoga with Ali Akbar Khan, Shweta Jhaveri and Silvia Nakkach. Using shamanic sound and voice techniques, along with an intimate knowledge of the principles of Psychoacoustics, Drea practices the evolving art of using sound to tune the systems of the body. During a private sound session or performance, Dréa’s main focus is to create a space where people can easily transcend conventional perceptions of their internal/external worlds, therefore facilitating a remembrance of archetypal sound.

WARRIOR

By the Gods has the Heathen Harvest Periodical been granted here today the privilege of presenting the pre-release exclusive premiere for the stellar re-visioning of Anilah‘s “Warrior,” which features a collaboration with Einar Kvitrafn Selvik of the ever prolific Wardruna. “Warrior (Revisited)” takes us on a profound journey towards inner healing and peace, allowing for visions of uplifting power that are deeply rooted in the natural world and are meant to stir the heart in such a way as to awaken its true strength. Anilah is a solo project by composer, vocalist, and instrumentalist Dréa Drury of the Selkirk Mountains of Western Canada, and her connection to this land as well as several ancestral, shamanic, and esoteric traditions is made blatantly obvious throughout this stunning eleven-plus minute epic.

With a new take on the original composition and additions made by the exceptionally mystifying presence of Selvik, we are invited to take part in a musical ceremony of power and healing. Their vocals meet together after the four-minute mark in the track, then the world around begins to fade and melt away into a fusion of swirling vocal harmonies, theatrical field recordings, and an inspiring “world” instrumentation style that incorporates an array of sounds that appears to be the first assimilation of its kind. “Warrior” is a ballad for the spiritual warrior within all of us, a calling that draws us toward those higher revelations in life. It also may just be—already, here in the deep winter month of January—the song of the year. The digital single is available now for pre-order at Anilah‘s Bandcamp page and will see an official release on January, 22. – [ Ryan Rock ].

From the Artist:

After over a year of working long-distance together, Dréa Drury (Anilah) and Einar Selvik (Wardruna) are releasing a new collaboration of the previously released track “Warrior.” The song is a potent combination of Selvik’s unique instrumentation and vocal skills, with haunting vocal soundscapes created by Anilah. The end-result is a fusion of modern elements with an ancient, shamanic sound. Here is what Selvik had to say about the collaboration:

“Working on Anilah‘s beautiful song ‘Warrior’ has been an absolute pleasure for me. Due to my creative work with Wardruna being so time-consuming, it is very seldom that I can accept invitations to collaborate on other people’s projects. But when I was presented with the song ‘Warrior,’ I immediately liked it. I instantly heard and pictured myself being part of it, and so accepted the gracious invitation. I am very happy with the outcome.” – [ Anilah ].

BOA

March 2nd, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Boa Profile

BOA was formed by accident. During a late summer night ’08, Botond and Attila we’re jamming outside on their front yard when Orsi suddenly joined in with her singing and la-di-da, BOA had been created. On purpose? Perhaps. BOA consists of five members:

Orsi – Vocals,
Botond – Acoustic Guitar,
Attila – Electric Guitar,
William – Drums and Olof – Bass.

MEMENTO MORI

Credits
Released February 28th 2015
Available On [ SPOTIFY ] & [ iTUNES ]

Everything has an end, even the BOA story – after seven years as a band they have now finished their final EP, Memento Mori. In four tracks, memento mori sums up the essence of BOA. This is BOA at their sweetest, but also at their most contemplative. From pondering lost love on opening track Perhaps, through the dreamy intimacy of I Almost Fell Aslep and the uptempo bittersweetness of The Whistle Song (maybe the ultimate BOA track), we arrive at the dramatic and soul-searching What If. Memento Mori reminds us about the big questions in life and love. The world might be ending, so where do we go from here? Is this really the end? Could there be another BOA album? To quote the opening track of memento mori: ”In another life, perhaps…”
