Feel

It is Chris Conway's ability to bring his huge experience of different musics, together with his skills on so many acoustic instruments together with his knowledge of state of the art electronics that makes his music special. He has an very strong feeling for harmony and the effect of that hamony on the emotions that make the feel of a Chris Conway new age album so distinctive.

Chris says of his music - "Whatever music project I do or whatever the focus of an album is, I always make sure every album I make is a REAL album - one you'll get a lot out of LISTENING to as well as, at other times, play for relaxation, yoga, reiki, meditation, spa treatments etc..."

buddha dreamer youtube gets 5 million views

this YouTube of my album Buddha Dreamer played twice over just passed 5 million views!!! . That is amazing! This last million took just 3 months!

It was uploaded by a company under license from the record label. I do get some royalty and PRS from this but sums from streamed music is small and there is a complex path to get to me.

But I just am chuffed at the numbers of listeners and I get such lovely comments under this YouTube. :-)

Conway Achalo Three Jewels And A Lotus
After 8 months of work the collaborative album with Buddhist monk Ajahn Achalo and myself, all conducted by email between his monastery in Bangkok and my studio in Leicester has been completed. His chanting and my wafty music, plus guests sitar player Neil Donoghue I worked with on Ayurveda Gold, and Celtic harper Mo Coulson

His students are releasing a CD but it will only be distributed at monasteries in Thailand and Malaysia, but he has said I can co-ordinate a digital release. It has just gone up on Bandcamp, where you can listen or download it and name-your-price (including £0). iTunes, Spotify, etc to follow.

outside in - piano improvisation + outside sounds - new album
Chris Conway Outside In

I recorded a new piano improvisation album last week. It is a single 51 minute track, and this time I placed 2 microphones out of the window to record the outside - rain, breeze in the trees, the odd car, which adds an otherworldy underscore to the music and sounds at times like the ocean.
I first did this outside recording on my first solo album 4am where I recorded a blackbird singing on my street at 4am.

It is available to listen, download to on Bandcamp and CDs will be on a you-want-one, I'll print one basis. It will be on iTunes & Amazon in a month or so.

I'm delighted with it - the music is a bit sparser perhaps than the previous piano album Midnight Window Blue, and the occasional folk-ish melody appeared.

spirits of the angels - new release

Chris Conway & Mo Coulson - Spirits Of The Angels

The CD of the Mo Coulson & Chris Conway album Spirits Of The Angels is now out!! (well. I have some advance copies anyway.) Check out the album webpage for more information and to buy the CD via paypal or for links to download.

Following the success of our Spirits Of The Mermaids album, this album is a little different - it is mostly instrumental with atmospheric voices and more peaceful and..um...angelic :-) Like Mermaids though there is a little story that runs through the album, of an angel who hears a child's voice and spends a day on Earth searching for the child.
The album was areal pleasure to make - it just seemed to flow effortlessly - and Mo and I are delighted with it. We hope you like it too. :-)

paradise music - 10 years!

Paradise 10 Years

2015 marks 10 years I have been recording with the Paradise Music new age label and in that time I have released/recorded/produced 28 Paradise albums.
Thanks to everyone at Paradise, all the artists I've collaborated with, and everyone who has bought, downloaded, streamed or just enjoyed my music and spread the word.
To mark the occasion I've started a chronological listening quest of all the albums I've made with Paradise. Interesting hearing the changes in techniques, sounds, and trends over time. "That was cool - why don't I do that anymore?" etc. And the things that haven't changed. The quest also gives me an appreciation of all the detailed work I did which I tend to forget just looking at the albums on my shelf. I'm enjoying the trip. :-)
