ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brian Henke composes and performs his music like a painter putting images on canvas, drawing his inspiration from the world around him. An avid hiker, he often brings his guitar along to create a spontaneous response to his outdoor settings. Mother Earth (Terra) as artist has given an immense living gallery from the humbling spectacle of her natural wonders to the simple, beauty of a treetop against a blue sky. Her majestic legacy and the magical feeling of awe and peace inspire the compositions of this award winning virtuosic fingerstyle guitarist.
Brian's four CD's, "Many Waters"," Love Song for Terra", "Force of Nature", and his recently released" The Nature of Light", are a cornucopia of sonic vistas. He celebrates a Grand Canyon sunset, the fireside magic of an American shaman, playful waterfalls, the color of the wind and the light of dreams to name a few. His live DVD, "Live at Cuyahoga Community College" gives listeners and viewers a chance to enjoy a front seat in an intimate concert setting with a half hour interview afterwards giving the viewer a deeper understanding of where his music comes from.
His unique guitar style has been called everything from Folk to New Age to Neo-Classical to Pastoral or as Brian likes to call it "a big stewpot of everything stirred up, simmered and served to taste." His music appeals to anyone who likes their music, lyrical, thought provoking and performed with virtuosity. Through it all is an undercurrent of spirituality and mysticism that Brian says is very much apart of the creative process. Because of this he has received radio air play on shows as varied as WKSU's "Folk alley" and John Dilberto's "Echoes". He has also shared the bill on the concert stage with acts as diverse as "Yes", "Linda Ronstadt", "Steve Morse", Yngvie Malmsteen", "Robin and Linda Williams", "Ritchie Havens", "Christine Lavin","The Kingston Trio", "Glen Yarborough", "Alison Brown", "Adrian Belew" and many of the best acoustic guitarists in the world including "Pete Huttlinger","Alex DeGrassi", "Stephen Bennett", "John Doan", Beppe Gambetta", "Dan Crary" and many, many others.
A winner of several Northeast Ohio Music Awards, he has also been a finalist in the National Fingerstyle Contest in Winfield, Kansas and the National Guitarmageddon regional finals in Boston.
"Elegant and emotional" - Dirty Linen Magazine

"Brian Henke's music displays both amazing technique and a wonderful sense of
calm."- Pete Huttlinger (National Fingerstyle Champion 2000)

"Finding words in our language, or any other, to try to describe Brian's music is difficult, like trying to describe a soul connection with a lover. No matter what is said, the words just don't seem to be enough. Beautiful, brilliant and amazing may come close to conveying the message. The energy and feeling can only be perceived from each listeners perspective." - Excerpt from review of "The Nature of Light" by Sage Satori; The Northcoast Voice

Jon from Olmsted Township

Simply beautiful!
The guitar work on this cd is amazing and the songs are simply beautiful. I'm particularly fond of tracks 6, 10, 11 and 21. I highly recommend this cd if you're looking for an amazing musical experience.

Interesting background for yoga!
I bought this CD based on a written recommendation here on the Web site. I teach yoga in Kansas City and plan on using this CD as background music. It's got a great feel to it and will bring a different yet still soothing sense to class ... and an unexpected sound for many yoga students, compared with most targeted yoga music. Happy trails!

Dr. Conn Drugan

Brian is a master of balanced phrasing.
When I first heard The Nature of Light, a voice inside of me said this is the same ecstasy that people felt when they heard Beethoven improvise on the piano. The more I revisited this music however, I came to the conclusion that he is not merely improvising but his ideas are very well thought out and developed. Such superior compositional skills keep Brian among my favorite artists that I've experienced in my 60+ years. This music like Beethoven's should be around a long time.

Yvonne Orbeck

Hooked...!
Loved it so much I just purchased the Force Of Nature and Many Waters....

Robin Hicks

Enjoyed reconnecting.
Brian's music is both stimulating and soothing. We allowed ourselves to stay in the moment of each song and let every experience wash over us. It's hard to explain the connectedness that comes from bathing in Brian's compositions.

Martin Gibbens

great for meditative arts
As a massage/shiatsu therapist and music fan, I'm always on the lookout for music that is both relaxing for my clients and stimulating for me. The Nature of Light is a perfect example. Brilliant guitar work, thrilling to listen to, while gentle enough to encourage the day's tensions to release.
