Ambient Highways 1 year anniversary, get it for Free!

July 31st of this year, will mark the 1 year anniversary of my landmark album Ambient Highways.

Voted Best Electronic Music Album of the year by One World Music Radio and a bronze metal award recipient from Global Music Awards, I couldn’t be happier with the acknowledgement and feedback I have received since releasing it.  Here are just some of the review statements made about Ambient Highways

“Few things are as delightful as when a truly remarkable ambient-electronic album crosses my path, and listening to Keith Richie’s “Ambient Highways” is about as sublime as it gets” – Candice Michelle – Journeyscapesradio.com

“Ambient Highway’s is a release that has captured my heart and mind and I am sure that it will yours as well” – Steve Sheppard – One World Music radio

The multiple award winning album Ambient Highways represents some of the my best music yet.

Starting with Neutrino and its particle like sequences that rise and fall through out the track and then being thrown immediately into a 1940’s noir like state with V Feeling (a homage to the classic Greek composer Vangelis), you won’t feel as if this album is repetitive at all.

The albums title song Ambient Highways comprises lush pads and a soft melody surrounding the listener in a blanket of symphonic electronica.

Additional songs on this release range from a melancholy like feeling to an exuberant state in their overall composition, yet pulls the listener through theses emotions with the albums crescendoing track Keeping The Dream Alive.

To share my joy with its success, I would like to give you the opportunity to have the album at little to no cost in celebration of the 1 year anniversary of its release.

More Shapes on the horizon

Spent a bit of time in the studio this past weekend working on more tracks for my “Shapes” project.  It’s really beginning to shape up (pun intended :)). I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for this one.

I’d like to share with you, one of the latest work in progress tracks for you now.  The working title is simply called “Shapes 9”.  The official name for the tracks will be made once the album is finished.

Shapes is the working title of a new album that is a follow up album to my Horror/Halloween themed album March of the Inanimate.

I’m always working on new material, and I wanted to get a head start this year to possibly have a new Horror / Halloween themed album ready for the 2016 Halloween season. When I released March of the Inanimate, I unfortunately didn’t get it released till nearly the end of October 2014. I always knew I wanted to do a follow up album to it, but this time ensure it was ready before or right at the starting of the Halloween season.

This is of course a very early draft, with only the basic melody and outline of the song in place, but feel it’s ready to start getting some early feedback. With 2-3 months to go before the official start of the 2016 Halloween season, I want to be sure everything is prepared for a suitable launch time.

If you are a fan of John Carpenter, you’ll know that “The Shape” is the pseudonym for Michael Myers from the Halloween franchise. It could also be applied to various elements from Carpenter films such as the androids in Halloween III or the leper victims of the Elizabeth Dane under the cover of The Fog. I may carry this theme throughout the album, or I may not. Who knows, but it’s an interesting concept to say the least.

Give it a listen and let me know your thoughts!
