About The Artist:
Will Tuttle is devoted to providing original piano music that is inspiring and that generates world-healing energy, and he has played this uplifting and healing music in concerts throughout North America and Europe for over 20 years.
A lifelong pianist and former Zen monk, with a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, focusing on educating intuition in adults, Will has for many years explored piano music as a meditative way to express the deepest yearnings of the heart. He creates both personalized Musical Portraits and also CD albums, including The Call, OceanPrayer, SkyHigh, AnimalSongs, Islands of Light, Ascension, and The Four Viharas.
AnimalSongs is a powerful and creative exploration of music, nature, and our kinship with animals. Children, as well as people who love animals and those who love nature typically LOVE this album. It is uplifting, happy, and heart-touching all at once. According to WPVR Radio (Roanoke, VA), "Words cannot describe the depth of Will Tuttle's imaginative piano paintings. AnimalSongs speaks deeply in the language of life."
The foundations of this hour-long album are Will's twelve evocative new compositions for solo piano. Artfully adorned with the voices of animals and nature sounds, AnimalSongs creates a listening experience unlike anything you have heard before! The Language of Light Magazine wrote, "AnimalSongs! It's an original idea and it truly succeeds. Laughter is guaranteed! The good feelings will last for the whole day. It's an artistic bath in nature which refreshes and awakens the sense of simple joy in living. An exceptionally well-crafted musical work."
Besides pieces with the amazing voices of wild animals like dolphins, wolves, hawks, and forest creatures, there are for the first time many pieces that showcase the remarkable voices of our old friends, the domesticated animals. This makes this CD a perfect gift for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone who loves farmed animals, as well as those who love wild animals as well. John Robbins, founder of EarthSave International, wrote, "In AnimalSongs, woven into Will Tuttle's radiant piano music, there is a spiritual message for our time."
This album, Will's fourth CD release, is truly music with a message of compassion, caring, and celebration. The voices of our animal relations can be heard in a provocative new way, and discovered by every listener in their own way. Magical Blend magazine wrote, "The feeling of AnimalSongs ranges from humorous to haunting and warm, and like Tuttle's previous albums, this one is a joy."
This rich and swirling tapestry of music reveals even more through headphone listening. AnimalSongs will always help you remember what matters, and bring joy and meaning to your day.
