New Release from Graham and Aaron Ord

My latest recording is now out. It is a collaboration with my talented Son Aaron Ord who plays Celtic harp and percussion.

Bouqet of Kindness coverBouquet of Kindness is a collection of original songs, instrumentals and spoken word. It is a beautifully recorded CD which was recorded at the Bottega Studios in Kelowna BC.  Our approach was to create a recording that is similar to how we sound live, so we avoided the temptation to do many overdubs and keep it minimalist and stripped down.  It has a peaceful feel but it is far from just background ‘Musak’. The pieces are dynamic and thoughtful and take the listener on a journey of creative expression.  Bouquet of Kindness is available as hardcopy or as a digital download at Knewsense Records.  We are also proud to partner with Milkcrate Records in Kelowna, who are selling it for us from their commercial Record Store.  We are currently working on some live shows which will be announced very soon.  We hope you enjoy the new music.

Joy Has Come to our Home from the new CD Bouquet of Kindness.

We are currently working on some live show dates which will be announced very soon.  We hope you enjoy the new music.

Thanks, everyone.

Tranquility – A New Recording

My vision was to record a long uninterrupted passage of music that would inspire peace and which could be ideal for relaxation, meditation, prayer and contemplation or study.  I am really happy to announce that I have just released the finished work.

The project is called TRANQUILITY (peaceful instrumental soundscapes) It features the classical nylon strung guitar played over beautiful warm pad sounds and a bed of ambient world percussion.

I was inspired to create the music after sensing the level of uncertainty and fear in the news concerning our world. I wanted to make some music that inspired peace and also hope.

The artwork was photographed by my 13 year old son Elias who loves photography.  It was taken at the memorial garden planted in the honour of my dear friend Ingrid.  It was the first time the tulips had popped up to greet the sun.  A fitting image for the project.

The recording is available as a download by following the link below.
