Serenity, Hope & Grace by Paul Asbury Seaman

May 3, 2020

I can always count on Paul for a good palate cleanser. After the bizzaro world of DEVS & the continuing covid crapola, I think everyone is in need of a little positivity.

Paul and I have talked often about how a lot of ambient music has a melancholy vibe. I know I definitely gravitate toward that end of the spectrum. Paul figured we could use something hopeful in these strange days. Here's what he says about this mix:

“I think authenticity is a precursor to authentic redemption. Thus, we honor our grief and fears and all the losses of this time we’re living through. There is pain alongside, not canceled by, the tranquility we seek. And there is a mysterious grace that gives us the strength to remain clear-eyed and truthful as we embrace hope.”

Thanks to Paul for another well-thought-out mix. Thanks to the folks at Kaya Project for letting us use the artwork from their latest album as the cover art for this mix. That art is from Suzybee - https://www.suzybee.buzz/ .  And thanks to all the artists that continue to crank out lovely music which helps us through the quarantine.
