BRAND NEW ALBUM - RELEASED NOW CREDITS/LYRICS PDF
With melodies that sing to you in the night and chase after you during the day, Sue Rinaldi stamps her distinctive trademark of epic yet spacious, intricate and surprising, accessible and honest to achieve profound synchronicity between heart and spirit.
ETHOS v1 builds upon her vast recording excellence and performing experience and succeeds in exploring new ground by skilfully interweaving soaring melodies, epic orchestration, luscious loops and textures with lyrical depth and life affirming honesty.
"I'm so excited to have finished this work of art and love all the skill and orchestration others have brought to the digital table," says Sue. This is music I like to listen to, songs of depth and reflection, songs inspired by other people's stories and even songs that make you smile. Here's a guided tour, track by track."
1. BELOVED - A soaring orchestration of seeking and finding. The divine mystery to be loved, totally known and despite human shortcomings and independent wanderings, still to be called 'beloved'.
2. COVER ME - Waves of clean refreshing water and droplets of grace fall upon a weary and troubled heart. The only way through the heavy shadows is to lay it all down and find light-rays of peace. Sacred Space.
3. KING OF COMPASSION - A litany for these times we are living in. Perfect for thoughtful reflection or corporate anthems of prayer, projecting words of light to shine into the darkness of tragedy and the tyranny of injustice.
4. GOD IS GOOD - A full-on, unabashed, whirligig of a song declaring the faithfulness of God throughout generations.
5. STRANGER - Quirky but immensely captivating. For all kinds of reasons, emotional, biological or psychological, people can feel a stranger to themselves. Acceptance and love is needed, not accusation and judgement.
6. SURRENDER - Genius programming, contained yet intense vocals, provide a mesmerising listen which crescendos into an acceptance that to surrender is the only way forward.
7. CARRY YOU - Stirring string arrangements and fluid, honest vocals tell the true story of a friend diagnosed with breast cancer. Her story is your story, when things unimagined happen that disturb the equilibrium and deposit fear and uncertainty. Amazingly, courage often rises.
8. WONDERFUL LOVE - With a melody that makes your mind it's home, this warm, smiling homage to God's love has a grown-up, pop-styled dna at the very core.
9. APPROACH - An engaging soundscape of movement to enable the correct posture for the following track
10. ALL AROUND YOUR THRONE - a bespoke arrangement that breathes height and depth. Beautiful. Harmonious.
11. CARRY YOU (KASSA REMIX) - Superb dance-floor interpretation. Turn it up and GO...
