The first step … is to take one

In the past few years Darrel has been a contributor to Melodic Revolution Records (MRR) holiday albums with his 2015 odyssey of nature This Crushed Diamond Shroud and in 2017 the untold story of the wise men who chose To Follow A Star. For 2018 Darrel has written a new piece; For Giving, a simple message which is quite profound that in giving we receive so much more, and to forgive others and oneself is another ‘step’ continuing the message from the 2017 release ‘Healing Touch’.  As with the previous holiday song releases Darrel has created a video inspired by the music of For Giving; enveloping us in the spirit of generosity and gratitude; the essence of giving.

These 3 tracks will appear on this new album with an additional six brand new instrumentals from the keyboard maestro himself. Nine songs suffused of contemplation, nine tracks that continue to stir the soul and awaken the dreamer, nine tracks of peace, serenity and hope magnified by this very special season.
