ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Company of Angels
Recorded, mixed and mastered at EARS Studios, Fenton, MO


Gentle and revealing, Ellen Gomez bares her soul in this, her debut album, "The Company of Angels." Opening with Parallel Trains, this song picks up steam quickly with a folksy blend of guitar, dobro, fiddle, mandolin and harmonica, the perfect song to start her first recorded musical journey. Upbeat and wonderfully arranged, Parallel Trains prepares us for the beautiful music that is just around the bend. With lyrics as honest as a confession, Gomez lets us know that she relies on her sensitivity and love of nature to carry her through life's difficult moments. The title song, The Company of Angels speaks of experiencing a moment of clarity at a sad time, when she believes that she is being watched and loved by angels that hover near and by. Just as unexpectedly and revealing, Basho's Waltz is a delightful instrumental, with a violin and guitar that dance together during an uplifting and joyous four minutes. Still, there is a touch of sadness in Gomez's music, held together and healed by the sweet salve of her spirituality and sense of hope for peace in the world. I would be remiss not to mention Song From a Childhood Dream, a masterful instrumental that conjures up images of sidewalk hopscotch and carefree summer days. For a debut recording, Gomez shows us she is as comfortable as a composer as she is a lyricist. Don't miss an opportunity to bring Ellen Gomez to your ears, and you'll bring her to your heart.

Loren Gomez

yes, she's my sister but I love this CD
I have heard Ellen playing the songs that went into her CD for a few years now. All together they flow so well, and the sounds of all instruments together with the vocals and harmonies create a wonderful whole. The images are very real and emotions strong. It is a CD I can listen to over and over and hear something new each time.

Katie Lacewell

Excellent CD. Lovely balance in music, vocals and lyrics.
Ellen Gomez has produced a CD straight from her heart, with sweeping music that blends that difficult balance between joy of life and the little sadness that sweetens the joy. Her lyric metaphor is poetic, lending itself to the listener's interpretation. The instrumental dialogues and vocal backups caress the music and bring out the pure heart of her art.

Karen Walker

A beautiful collection
Each of Ellen’s songs is a lullaby of strength, beauty and emotion. Heartrending and gentle, you will want to remain wrapped in The Company of Angels. These original melodies will linger in your mind long after you listen, and the beauty of the lyrics and instrumentals will touch you.

Excellent

V. Corday

Nice listening
Good songcrafting and arranging, and the emotion comes through. The singing leaves a bit to be desired but it doesn't detract from a good listening experience.

Gina Wildgrube

WOW! Great CD.
Grandmother and I sat on my front porch and listened to the whole Cd. We enjoyed each song and because of Grandma's hearing the neighbors may have enjoyed it also!
I like that you have the words to each song on the Cd cover.
