Hope you’re doing well…
I wanted to say Hello and Thank You for visiting “Healing Steel Drums”! I have been getting lots of positive feedback from many of you that have listened and purchased HSD Vol. 1, and it makes me very happy-
I had no idea that this recording could be helpful in so many ways! People tell me they use it when starting their day, when falling asleep and even for a quick mental “escape from reality”- there are more and more fun and relaxing ways you can experience Healing Steel Drums” as well. The main reason for my recording this project was to help you relax and get a reprieve from everyday troubles-I’m sending you to the beach, where everything moves slower and you can breathe easier for awhile! I hope you enjoy the music, as I truly believe it has
restorative and healing power.
I hope you have a wonderful Fall season, and can revisit Summer whenever you like by listening to this recording!
I wanted to share some of the feedback I’ve received lately on the many ways that people have benefitted from “Healing Steel Drums Volume One”. It seems that there are more ways people are listening than I had realized! For instance, one person said that it helps them relax in their daily traffic doldrums. Another writer who is a parent said that they use it for getting their kids to fall asleep. They had been on a vacation in the islands and it reminded them of that wonderful time! I also heard from several people that were in poor health through extended illness or surgery that have been enjoying it. I also still find that it’s a great way to fall asleep at night or to greet a new day! Sitting on the porch at day’s end works just fine as well. However you choose to use “Healing Steel Drums”, I hope that your life is improved- Thanks for all of your positive comments!

The first six songs have surf and seagulls mixed in to transport you instantly to the beach-
The last 6 are all steel drums with no background.
This recording was done on entirely on my set of Double Second Pans, which were made in 1987 by Master Pan Builder Cliff Alexis. I have known Cliff since my College days at NIU (where he is still Artist in Residence). Cliff is truly an amazing craftsman- his fine work is evident here!
My goal in making this recording was to create songs that both relax and rejuvinate, with some classic Calypso melodies and chord changes built in. The patterns I play built some interesting overtones, which was something that just happened as I went along.
I recorded this at my home studio- Thanks to my wonderful family for putting up with me!
There will also be hard CD copies available- stay tuned for more information on how to order if you’re partial to having one.
