Irie Greetings Massive,
Anna Fisher here hailing you up from the Golden State, specifically Los Angeles. I'll be blunt, you need to take a listen to a cool sound that we're getting on an oboe and and English horn rubbing against the luscious keyboard stylings of, Jawge Hughes. When I first started taking lessons, the usual knee jerk response was, "What's an oboe?" although the savvy few with some degree of musical education would respond, "Gorgeous instrument the oboe, but it's one of the hardest instruments to play! What made you choose oboe?" and I usually respond, "Yes, hard, but I love the sound sooooooo much!" Listen to any classical symphony or opera and tell me the oboist's melodies aren't the most beautiful, well at least equally as gorgeous as the English horn or French horn's mournful and triumphant solos. But an orchestra is like any team and every member is interdependent. No one instrument is more or less important than another except for those who carry the most important solos and nail them flawlessly night after night! This comes with years of practice and commitment. Please listen closely, this music has lots of fresh ideas you're sure to appreciate. We felt it was time for something new that we weren't hearing out there and made a commitment to create this lifesong. So here we are and here's our sound. Please sign the message board with your ideas and if you think your friends will like it,
pass it on.
Please help us change the world,
one heart at a time,
Thank you very much,
Peace, One Love and Light,
Ana and Jawge began rehearsing for the road in October 2004. However, they've collaborated ever since they met each other at Joe Higgs New Years Eve Show in 1998 at Leimert Park in Los Angeles. While discussing where Jawge was from on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Anna explained that she had been the Elementary Music Teacher for St. John Public Schools for 10 years and actually taught his cousins (Richards Family of St. John) for many years. As we start naming names we realized we knew so many of the same people and vowed to return one day. Many of his fondest memories from youth contained visits to St. John for family gatherings and summer vacations away from the urban environment of the housing development he returned home to each night. We unreservedly present you our dream for balance in the world hoping that this music will build those dreams of youth into clearer focus. We both had heard, "Do what you love and the money will follow!" To which we all thought was a beautiful standard to live by. We love it, it was a labor of love from beginning to end.
