It is a duo from heaven here to grace our presence with the magic of change, their music.
“Reveal” – Released April 8, 2021.
The Song Gardeners, with their latest release “Reveal,” venture further into the arena of New Age pop. The track hints at World music with its subtle textures, including a nod to Enigma with a lyric that tackles a global issue that is close to the heart.
Written by Corrie Dunn, Mary Gospe and David Scheibner, Reveal is an invitation for women across the globe to break free of outdated patriarchal, religious and cultural norms that keep them silenced and hinder their choices and freedom of expression.
The song’s empowering chant is sung in Farsi, Spanish and English by Mary Gospe.
Women around the world unite
Stand up for all to see
Celebrate our diversity
Corrie Dunn is stunning on lead vocals as she sings “empower the people with freedom, to rise above life’s adversities” and “the future is in our hands now, a world with gender equality.”
The song ends with a powerful round with both Corrie and Mary singing the bridge, chant and chorus. View the lyric.
There can now be no doubt that The Song Gardeners have brought about, and are bringing about, a musical revolution in this new wave of New Age music, their latest single comes on the back of the huge success of taking the One World Music Radio’s Oneness Award.
Reveal is another step in the right direction for the band, who are Mary Gospe, backing vocals, Corrie Dunn lead vocal and piano, and with David Scheibner guitars and producer supreme.
The song sings of freedom and empowerment, and its uplifting and driving messages of tearing down the walls of indignity and empowering the people, through peaceful solutions are a breath of ultra-fresh air in the genre and there can be no denying that The Song Gardeners have just released what is going to be yet another huge hit on their ever growing roll of honour.
Here, we have Corrie Dunn on absolutely beautiful lead vocals and piano. She is ON it. Also, Mary Gospe performs on equally gorgeous backing vocals – with the harmonious chant sung in Farsi, Spanish, and English giving the piece an even extra appeal – and we have David Scheibner on glorious guitars. …it’s their best yet.
Written as a response to the chaos of 2020, Mary Gospe’s song, “Warrior of Light,” (recorded by The Song Gardeners and produced by David Scheibner) is a song of courage and empowerment. Discern your own truth, shift from fear to love and:
Stand up! Reclaim your sovereignty
Stand up! For what you believe
Stand up! Create a new story
Stand up! Peacefully, peacefully
Activate the love inside, be a warrior, warrior of light
Mary Gospe: lead vocals; Corrie Dunn: piano and backing vocals; Chris Day: bass; David Scheibner: production, mixing and guitars.
This has to the most important single released this year so far, it is entitled Warrior of Light, you will find some very poignant lyrics within this superb single, so please listen carefully and then become that warrior you know you can be… A smart and tranquil song with an ultra-positive message, all done to the backdrop of a truly beautifully performed arrangement.
