This Music…..These Lyrics…..born from the inspiration and feelings of connection to nature is the work of George Nicholas, an artist, muralist, sculpturist, poet, singer, and philanthropist.
This Work is Big! Filled with all kinds of Textures! You find you are in the midst of a story that draws you closer and closer in. George Nicholas is an excellent singer songwriter and his voice has a quality I’ve not heard before in pagan music! If you love pagan music with a new age feel, then this is the album for you. – Damh the Bard – Pagan Music
This album is a delicious expression of a man in love with the magic of these ancient lands and its complex mysticism and otherworldly law and realms brought to you through evocative song and well crafted lyrics. Kristoffer Hughes – Author of natural Druidry, and Head of Anglesey Druidic Order
Cernunnos Rising has brought forth an ethereal blend of songs that exemplify the essence of the green man and the musings of the deep woods through some of the most exhilarating druidic music I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. – Michele Burke- Pagan Pages USA
The image of Cernunnos rising chosen for the cover art work denotes the angry aspect of the Green Man and the Wild Soul, challenging us to look again at our delicate connection to the world around us, reappearing more recently as a potent symbol of ecological concern. The Music of Cernunnos Rising embraces songs of the seasons celebrated by Imbolc, Beltane, Laughnasadh, and Samhain. Some enjoy the expression and exuberance within the springtime waking songs of re-emergence, so alive and vibrant after winters stillness and quiet. Others relate to and favour the songs of the later fruitful and abundant time of Harvesting reflected in “The Heartbeat of Harvest”. Autumn brings us the song of remembrance and is dedicated “To those who brought us here” and acknowledges those who quietly guide us. This is a special time of contemplation and reflection. And so we journey through the dark, still, period of winter realising our web of connection to all. The slowly turning wheel of the year brings us once again to the new virgin year “a time of great potential” and promise, insight and inspiration. The song tells of the gathering life force and the new unopened bud.
