ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Amitié means friendship in French for music is the language of the heart, the sweet words of one friend to another...

A native of Grenoble, France, Danick is a life long musician who has been in the US for 20 years. She has a music degree from the Conservatoire de Musique of Chalon s/Saone, France.

The songs are meant to inspire and uplift the listeners. "French is such a beautiful language," people say. "I feel the same about English," responds Danick! For her, all languages are gateways to exotic places. Their sounds carry grace and energy, strength and vulnerability even if we don't understand the words. It becomes a left/right brain experience, le yin/yang de la musique!

Danick is also the lead vocalist, guitarist and song writer for Ancient Sounds, an inspirational world music ensemble that features ancient instruments like flutes and didgeridoo. Ancient Sounds produced two CD's that are available on CDBaby as well as on www.ancientsounds.org.

Jonny Akamu, born in Hawaii is a talented and versatile guitarist/ singer/ songwriter whose philosophy is that music is a gift, not just a sound. It's part of the human soul. Jonny’s passion for music has taken him through the Orient and Europe, always in search of new techniques, influences, styles, and rhythms. In 2005, he went to Seville, Spain to study flamenco guitar. Upon returning from Spain, Jonny wove elements of flamenco into his jazz phrasing to create a laid back vibe that truly reflects who he is. He lives in Seattle where he plays with many musicians.

John Sanders, accordionist, is a music instructor at Edmonds Community College where he teaches Music Theory and directs the Jazz Band. John continues to work as a jazz pianist as he has for many years in the Seattle area, but he's so grateful to have opportunities to explore his new love, the accordion. John lives north of Seattle with his wife and two daughters.

Stephen Kennedy, upright bass, attended Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood Washington, where he played with the vocal jazz ensemble, Soundsation. He completed his Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Central Washington University. While there, he studied double bass with Jon Hamar, while playing in the orchestra, jazz band, and various combos. Stephen currently teaches in the Mukilteo School District and plays bass every chance that he gets.

Fantastic
this is a stellar CD! Every song on it is listenable again and again. The album is almost entirely in french, but is so beautifully produced and played that you need not know French to understand or enjoy it. A stunning Debut. This group is as good live as they are in the studio, should you ever get the chance to hear them!
