Hi friends! In response to the many folks who have warmly commented on our newest song, "Horses on Wheels," and who have wanted to ride that horse (at least online!), we've added that song to our audio player, on the right side of each of our website's pages. You can also find the lyrics and the story behind the song! "The saddle is wide" so hop on!
We've been busy adding concert videos (from our concert with the Salt Lake Symphony and the West Jordan High School Concert Choir) to our VIDEO page. Today we added "Secret Prelude" to "Give" and "The Last Marathon Dance." Of course, you can also see songs from our Emmy Award-winning TV show featuring our Zion Canyon Song Cycle. Let us know what you think of the new concert videos!
Just under the wire, one last song raced in—on the back of a horse on wheels! Our new CD was completely recorded when the creativity of photographer Roz Newmark and artist Edie Roberson inspired one more trip to the piano. Edie’s whimsical trompe-l’oeil painting, “Serendipity,” graces our CD jacket cover (designed by Sandy Bell). Her personal collection of antique toys includes a toy horse on wheels which Roz photographed for the inner jacket. Recalling that one of the book’s stories concerns a little girl who received a toy pull-horse for Christmas (as a result of the secret gift to her parents), Phillip responded to Roz's evocative still-life by quickly composing “Horses on Wheels” as a wishful coda. It's on the CD!
