Fiona Joy Hawkins crosses genres, from quiet contemplative piano to full orchestral, to world sounds, rhythms, jazz influences and back again to the perfect “Bach” moment – all in a breath. Blue Dream crosses from Contemporary Classical, to World Fusion, Jazz and New Age. Portrait of Waterfall and Angel Above my Piano are 'Music to Dream to' and ICE - Piano Slightly Chilled has been hailed by several reviewers as one of the best chill out albums produced within the New Age Genre. Christmas Joy was listed as one of the best 12 Christmas albums ever. Her new album 600 Years in a Moment will be available in CD, SACD 5.1 hybrid/multichannel as well as vinyl.
An exquisitely captivating musical journey from start to finish. Vibrant, Sensual, Haunting. Blue Dream is an unforgettable magic carpet ride into the heavens. I am so proud to have been a part of Fiona’s special world....”
T-Bone Wolk, Producer Arranger (Hall and Oates)
