As a composer of Contemporary Instrumentals, I have explored the genres of New Age, Jazz, Electronica and World Beat throughout the years. I have always approached the music with an essence of contemporary romanticism and with my lyrical piano melodies, exposed my heartfelt feelings with an emotional character that has defined my sound.

I have often reflected on past life lessons that include loss, spiritual awakening, happiness and struggle and portrayed these emotions with my music. In the last 30 years I have been able to create music that became my therapy to deal with my issues as well as continue my efforts as a composer.

The people who appreciate my music may enjoy certain CDs then others depending on which moods are represented. My relaxed and romantic moments can be heard on “Falling into Midnight”, “Shadow Crossing”, “Everlasting” and “A Whisper to Remember”. My New Age World Beat influence can be heard on “The Wishing Well”, and my Contemporary Jazz can be heard on “Manhattan”, “Cheshire Moon”, “Gold Coast” and “With Every Intimate Breath”.

My experimentation with fusing New Age with electronica can be heard on “Hard Rains Often Fall” and my new CD release “Suburban Prairie”. I’m not sure where I’m going next put there is still a lot more music to compose. Turning 50 years old sheds a new light on what you are here on this planet for. I hope that I can continue to create and share music that people can relate and enjoy for many more years. ~ Curtis Macdonald

First, I would like to state that I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination. There is not an artistic bone in my entire body. Therefore when writing music reviews for artists works, my comments come purely from enjoyment of the art itself and the feelings the music stirs. Definitely NOT from any technical knowledge I have of the art. Short, sweet, and to the point, and always positive (for the most part – laugh).

I would like to present:

Kerani with the album Wings of Comfort.

This is my first experience with the music from the artist Kerani. And first impressions were spectacular.

The three pieces on this album are by far some of the most relaxing and enjoyable works I have heard for a very long time.

Very methodical and well arranged, each piece allows the listener to find a quiet peace in each note.

I am not one for very long works, I have the attention span of a 2 year old with ADD. The works are 20, 21, and 27 minutes respectively. But I found myself immersed in the very subtle changes in each work, and enthralled by the simple melody of each.

Honestly, I am a symphony fan. These pieces remind me so very much of a couple of works by Dvorak, very quiet and soothing. And Kerani accomplished this without an entire symphony to back the works. This is truly remarkable.

I would say that this album is a MUST for any New Age collection.
