Hi, I have gathered artists together for a charity album that will benefit the VH1 Save the music Foundation.
All the artists have kindly donated a track each for a download album which will be available at the end of September. It includes a track by Suzanne Doucet who has kindly provided this website for us to share our stories.
More details here: https://www.newagemusicplanet.com/charity-album.html
The album includes International performers, award winners and much more.
Follow and join our Facebook Group for fuller information and updates.
You can listen to clips of the tracks of our artists on the website above and click on the image below for details of the charity.
I have been busy at work and life, and not spending as much time "digging in" here at "the Circle" as I used to do. In returning after some months, it was nice to see that we have so many new members, and LOTS of interest in SFTC XII...kudos to Suzanne Doucet for keeping it all going for 12+ years, my good friend is a TIRELESS promoter of the New Age genre and I truly hope someone gives her an award for it one of these days!
Another observation that I made about this group is how nice it is to visit a very "concentrated" community of New Age artists and fans, as opposed to searching the overwhelming Internet and the multitude of FB Groups that seem quite repetitive these days. I think we are seeing a return to focused "forums" like this one...with the new ability to share images, videos and events that go far beyond the discussion groups of the 80s & 90s.
That said, this CIRCLE now has so much content and so many members, that it could be used 10x more than we currently use it...for sharing music & videos, finding collaborations, sharing contacts, creating a house concert network, cross-promoting your streaming accounts and videos, etc.
I encourage you to visit more often, connect harder, share more and ASK for what you want and need...state your dreams and intentions! We are an audience of peers who "gets it."
What would you like to see more of here on The Circle?
I'm so happy that my second album "Hue of Indigo and Blue" is finally out! You can find it on any digital store! Let me know what you think about!
The playlists is the easiest way to be really creative on Spotify, they can also be a very useful marketing tool.
Including your music in a playlist means more listeners, more sharing opportunities, more income, and the opportunity to take your music to the ears of music supervisors, many of whom listen to playlist as a way to find the right songs for TV productions and cinema.
That's why we encourage you to send your tracks by email so we can consider it for one of our playlists.
Which Spotify playlists will you choose?
We created a playlist for each mood. Send us your track for consideration. Don't forget... Follow the playlists and share them!.
Here we go!

Sisu is the second album from award winning composer and pianist Jennifer DeFrayne. This album is dedicated to her Finnish heritage and has already received praise from noted reviewer Bill Binkelman who stated Jennifer DeFrayne's 'Sisu' is not just better than her debut ( By a Wire ), which is already high praise, but it is a work of such emotional depth, technical artistry, and self-assuredness, that I am left wondering 'Where has this remarkable woman been all this time?'
Sisu is a deeply personal musical voyage that you will want to take many times, exploring the nooks and crannies in each track. The Finnish term sisu is a universal capacity which we all share Perseverance, Courage, Endurance, Determination, Grit, Fortitude, Bravery, Spirit, Resilience, Inner Strength and more. Jennifer DeFrayne, a self-taught pianist, has this to say about how the songs on the album came about: Each song embraces the spirit of sisu, reflects its many characteristics, and is in honor of my Finnish heritage.

Big thanks to JERRY ROCKWELL for the kind shout out on New Age Stars: "I’m so humbled to be on Sounds from the Circle VI!! There are so many incredible artists on this collection! Suzanne Doucet and Beth Ann Hilton do such a great job of putting this together, and it is such a monumental task with 40 tracks! A number of these compilations are among my current favorite listening: The Gathering I and II, Music That Matters (to benefit South African children), several years of Sounds From The Circle: these all are great discovery tools for me and I’ve come upon some amazing new artists this way...."
