William Paul's "Horse Dreams", the first music CD dedicated to the noble horse, has met with stunning critical success and radio and retail are next. Copmpared with Vangelis and Kitaro and out for only a few weeks, "Horse Dreams" is already a top download on iTunes stores worldwide and is making playlists everywhere. "We couldn't be happier for William or "Horse Dreams"," said Benjamin van der Wel, President of Delvian Records. "He's really hit on something so universal - everyone loves horses! And his music is a majestic tribute to them. Apparently this is the very first album ever dedicated to the horse and people everywhere are responding like they've found a long-lost friend."
Even successful equestrian professionals that have made their lives in the world of horses agree. Julie Krone, Triple Crown Winning Jockey, says "The CD is most enjoyable. I put "Horse Dreams" on my i-Pod."
And horse enthusiast, movie star and legend Kim Novak personally sings Paul's praises: "Thank you, William, for sharing your special talent in communicating in a language that all creatures can understand and appreciate."
Just a few of the great reviews:
Bill Binkelman (Wind and Wire): "You don't need to be a horse lover to appreciate the care and quality that Paul brings to the recording. I recommend the album."
Chris Spector (Midwest Record Recap): "Mixing his passion with his calling, William Paul creates a well woven soundscape that horse lovers will have an intuitive feel for and take to heart. The music is so rich with emotion and texture."
Peter Dolan (CDReviews): "William Paul has more than just a profound love for this noble animal, but also a deep respect, a feeling of reverential spiritualism - an equating of the equine spirit with the highest of virtues. These powerful feelings manifest themselves in the tracks on the CD."
Skip Whitson (The Sun News/New Mexico): "I found it to be relaxing, soothing and highly evocative. I was intrigued by the 'horse feel.' I'm quite impressed with William Paul's skill with composition."
Dick Metcalf (Improvijazzation): "William's music will inspire your imagination. He clearly loves communicating his feelings/dreams through music, and you will be transported, I can assure you. I give this one a "highly recommended" for anyone who likes to hear enchantment come alive."
J-Sin (Smother.net): "William Paul has employed luxurious synths that coat with a topping of sugar all of the songs giving them a dainty but strong reserved feel perfectly suited as a tribute to the horse. Interesting and certainly a unique idea for an album."
Blase` DeStefeno (Outsmart Magazine): " The compositions might remind the listener of Windham Hill-style offerings, with motifs occasionally reminiscent of Cirque du Soleil themes."
Elias Granillo (Sea of Tranquility): "A union of the breadth of Vangelis, the solemnity of Kitaro, and the artifice of Yanni. If this is your cup of mirth, it will sprint not by yards, but miles."
