For Lisbeth Scott, her recent CD "Fair Skye" is a departure from the norm. Well known in the Pop/New Age word for her previous and stunning release "Dove", and for her work on Windham Hill's "State of Grace" for Paul Schwartz, Lisbeth takes a different turn with the music on "Fair Skye", creating a collection of peices meant for healing, rejuvenation and a peaceful escape to on'e inner landscape. Suitable for use with yoga and meditation, this music truly soothes the soul. The music on "Fair Skye" was created originally for the Sacred Lens recording "Healing Light" (also available on CD Baby!) which is a combination of guided imagery (specifially for those dealing with physicall challenges and disease) by Dr. Jan Berlin and music by Lisbeth Scott.
Turning to her Armenian roots, much of the text on "Fair Skye" is written and sung in Armenian, a lush and passionate language that lends itelf to the spiritual nature of this release. For Lisbeth, "Fair Skye" represents her first journey into the world that combines both healing and music, her two greatest passions. Using the rich cello stylings of Nathan Barr, the intuitive and emotional fiddle playing of Gabe Witcher, and the lyrically organic flute work of Darryn Songbird, Lisbeth builds a beautiful tapestry of sound, the foundation of which is her own work on piano, guitar, harmonium, and of course, her voice.
For those of you who already know her work, "Fair Skye" is a perfect addition to the Lisbeth Scott catalogue! For those of who are discovering her for the first time, "Fair Skye" is the perfect welcome to the dreamy, sensuous, and super-natural world of this truly unique artist.
