Light and airy, deep and satisfying, this 11 track CD from Paradise Music just continued to blow me away.  Even after my ears aren’t listening anymore my heart and soul stayed very happily plugged in.

The voices and instruments came together to just take me all kinds of places. I would recommend this Celestial Hunny to anyone wanting a light meal that sticks to the spiritual ribs.
Thanks so much you two for slowing this old soul down.
Love & Light,

Provides me with a dreamscape within which to produce ideas. For me, good background music of the relaxing kind - which one needs in a busy life.

Awareness Magazine - July/August 2014

The overall sound has a light Celtic flavor and a relaxed quality that evokes a sense of peace and serenity. Coulson's vocals drift through several of the tracks, including the beautiful "Don't Make A Sound" and the music box-like "Melusina."
Remarkable, relaxing Celtic music that tells a beautiful love story based on the tales of Melusine, who appears in much mermaid mythology. Features special guests from the award-winning Govannen.
