On The Steps — This CD features delicately nuanced recordings of David Myska's two original clarinet trios, the second with harp (Susan Allen). Recorded in Valencia, California and in Toronto, Canada.

UnderWater_PureLiz Ammerman  — UnderWater_Pure contains harp music recorded over several years, illustrating the exploration of new concepts, capturing a stream of thought. This is the first compilation and release of this material.

DreamElectric Angel — "After listening to this CD you'll never look at the harp the same way again....This music is simply brilliant. Beautiful harmonies, superior vocals, masterful arrangements....Electric Angel is made up of three amazing women who...have ventured out to create a totally new soundscape that is nothing short of being pure ear candy. Midyne Spear, Jill Meniketti, & Lynne Reardon make up this trio of eclectic singers/songwriters/musicians....I have yet to be so inspired and uplifted by an album or by any musicians the way I have been by this group."          Michael Allison — THEGLOBALMUSE.COM

Window to My SoulUlpia Erdos — This is an album with twenty of my compositions. This is the window to my soul! I love the harp, I love playing and composing, teaching, arranging and people love what I'm doing. So, I'm very happy! 

strataDeborah Ethier — With influences as diverse as Steve Reich, Alan Hovhaness, Philip Glass, Brian Eno, Ludovico Einaudi, Bach, film scores, World Music and Impressionism, it is difficult to label this music. At times seriously minimalist, at others unabashedly Romantic, folksy, ambient or even new-age, the one thread tying everything together is the harp. But is this an album solely of harp music? Decidedly not! It is more about musical pattern, colour, texture, story-telling and atmosphere....with a harp or two or five!

Nine Visions for flute and harp — Well known harpist Ruth Wickersham Papalia writes: "The playing of harpist Myra Kovary and flautist Laura Campbell on the new CD "Visions for Flute and Harp" written by Laurie Conrad is superb." Laurie Conrad is a pianist and composer living in Ithaca, NY. Her music is performed all over the world by professional performers and ensembles, as well as on radio and television. Some of her honors include: Who's Who in American Music, The International Who's Who in Music (Cambridge). For more information on the composer and her music see: http://www.aristopia.com

ReflectionTara Alterman Lockyer "Exquisite original melodies in all flavors written for harp surrounded by lush orchestrations. A family affair featuring composer Michael Alterman and his daughter Tara on harp."  Some titles include: Reflection -a look at life, Jai's Tango -a true Argentinean beauty, I See Your Face -a long lost love in Paris, Cap Ferrat -a Mediterranean journey, Little Flower -a visit to old Mexico, Eze -a haunting melody in a beautiful bossa nova setting, Jazzo -ride with the harp on this upbeat Latin jazz feel, and Tara -enjoy this introspective, bittersweet ballad.

Echoes of Another TimeMoira Nelson — This modern take on traditional music blends vocals, harp, guitar, cello, piano and flutes.  From instrumentals to a cappella harmonies, the music is romantic, edgy and totally engaging. The album brings to mind folk music from a classical perspective as it might have been performed in Victorian times — a kind of Celtic Victoriana. "Good tunes, well-balanced arrangements, lovely voices and instrumentals. Absolutely delightful. An extra treat is Moira's original composition called 'Through the Looking Glass'.  This is a spirited and imaginative tune that is performed beautifully."  Besty Paine, Folk Harp Journal

Come Gentle Night Sue Richards with Ensemble Galilei. Ensemble Galilei is a group of six women performing Celtic, Early, and original music. This project focuses on the music of Shakespeare's era, both English and Celtic, and original music inspired by the prolific bard. Instruments: Celtic harp, fiddle, Scottish smallpipes, viola da gamba, oboe and recorders, and percussion. Music includes: Child Grove, Woodycock, Joy to the Person of My Love, Lillibulero, Apples in Winter.

Comfortable Blues — The title of Verlene Schermer's first recording of her versatile originals is drawn from a strong cut called "The Ostrich," a social lament on apathy.  The songs shift stylistic gears from up-tempo rock flavored numbers to smoky jazz-infused ballads with a touch of the blues.  She accompanies her voice on acoustic guitars and piano, and in addition, folk harp, violin, and synthesizer.  Top-notch musicians on bass, drums, electric guitar, flute, horns, and keyboards join Verlene.  The album's most powerful moments belong to the mood numbers, such as "What's Making You Blue," and "Now I Know."

Dreamtime Verlene Schermer's second release features thirteen more of her original songs.  Each reflects her eclectic musical taste and provides a vehicle for her versatile singing voice.  The folk harp is the primary accompanying instrument, with the addition of various instruments such as oboe, violin, cello, bowed psaltery, flute, and soprano sax.  Verlene plays the harp in a style that is unique and innovative, giving a new meaning to the term "blues harp."  The lyrical content of the songs range from themes of dreaming and vision to poignant observations about modern living.

Persephone's Art Verlene Schermer's most recent solo release includes thirteen of her original songs as well as her jazzy arrangement of Gershwin's "Summertime." The songs on this CD tell many stories - of winter and spring, pain and joy, dark and light.  Verlene plays a Triplett folk harp, a Blessley cross-strung chromatic harp, and a Camac electro-harp, as well as acoustic guitar, and electric piano. Verlene is supported by Preston Carter on electric and string bass, and Don Frank on drums, Kelly Fasman on the bapercussion, Steve Steinberg on saxophone, and others.

Rendezvous with the Moon Verlene Schermer's third solo recording features thirteen original songs, and also includes the well-requested cover, "You Take My Breath Away."  The folk harp is the primary accompanying instrument to Verlene's innovative and expressive voice, with five of the tracks featuring the chromatic cross-strung harp.  Percussion instruments from many World Music traditions add a spicy texture to the mixes, tying East to West in a blend of sounds and rhythms.  You will also hear string bass, flute, a string quartet, and vocal harmonies in this collection of songs about creative process.

Illuminations - Labyrinthian Music — Music for personal contemplation, intimate sharing and perfect for walking a labyrinth.  This is a compilation of 20 of Christina Tourin's original compositions.  Christina tours the country with a beautiful portable canvas labyrinth.  To journey to the center of the labyrinth is to experience the most inner illumined part of your being.  The compositions Christina presents on this album have come from that place.

Rencontre (Encounter) — Two different harps find each other and form a remarkable and rare duo: the self-built South American style harp of Jacques Vandevelde and Arielle Valibouse's classical pedal harp (she is harp soloist with the Flanders Opera), get a very rich sound together in an original repertoire which includes pieces with a classical tonality, as well as popular traditional songs and very specific adaptations of their own compositions. It illustrates the enrichment of every encounter, every project that brings people together in a treat for the ear and the eye. The cover is the work of the great French painter Patrick Marques who has used the harp as a subject for some of his other paintings.

The Music of John Eaton — Original compositions by famed composer John Eaton; featuring Ars Poetica with harpist Dr. Beverly Wesner-Hoehn.
