Favorite Blogs on New Age Music

The news media has dubbed the first 10 years of the century, the “digital decade” (well, actually Bill Gates did, but news networks have jumped on the bandwagon).  Certainly, anyone with a Facebook or Twitter account, or those that enjoy downloading music from the Internet will agree.  Perhaps one of the most enjoyable aspects of social networking these days is the proliferation of “weblogs,” more commonly known as “blogs.”

You can find a blog on just about any niche in which you are interested.  As an Ambient New Age singer songwriter – with a blog of my own – I definitely have my favorite blogs on New Age music.  If you love inspiring music from this genre, then come along with me.  There are some true gems out there that can broaden your repertoire and enjoyment!

12 Days of Christmas – With Style!

There are so many versions of Christmas music favorites, it can be hard to stand out.  Until now.

A few years ago, the a cappella men’s chorus, Straight No Chaser, wowed the world with its version of the 12 Days of Christmas.  The group of ten undergraduate musicians from Indiana University have been entertaining audiences with their classy, fun and sometimes hilarious concerts – always performed without any instrumental accompaniment.

The 12 Days of Christmas was their breakout performance.  After it was uploaded to YouTube, the Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records discovered their talent…. and the rest was history!

Watching this video almost makes me want to have more than 12 Days of Christmas!

There’s much more “Straight No Chaser,” on their web site, including additional Christmas songs, if you’re in the mood.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Enjoy the Best New Age Music

What comes to mind when you consider New Age artists?  Let me tell you that its probably not what you might have heard 10-20 years ago!  These days, “new age” can include several other music genres that are exciting, inspiring and make you want to dance!   Ambient music, world music, alternative music and much more, are often mistakenly grouped together, even though they all have a unique sound.  Type in any one of the phrases into Google, and you’ll likely find all of these sounds.

With New Age radio stations and music online, it is easy and convenient to enjoy the best New Age music…. even if you might call it something other than New Age!
