"Imagine walking along the beach in the early morning, listening to the quiet hiss of gentle waves, feeling the sand give under your bare feet, and noticing the soft, pastel colors around you. This is the gentle, reflective quality you will find in Kathy Raimey's debut CD, "Flowers of Fire." Her soft piano improvisations were conceived in the early hours of each morning when she was "still close to the dream state," and the music is perfect for that time of day, or for meditation or healing work. The sound of ocean waves provides the background for the pensive, heartfelt melodies that soothe and comfort the listener.
"Flowers of Fire", with its beautiful cover art, also by Kathy Raimey, will only be found in a few local stores and on Raimey's website, www.cdbaby.com/kathyraimey, as she is a local, independent artist who is not yet represented by a distributor. It's worth the effort to seek it out!"
