a lifeguard in a sea of negativity
Temecula, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2008
Sterling Heart Music announced today the release of singer-songwriter Sandi Kimmel's third studio album, Reach Up - The Soundtrack for the Spiritual Journey. Co-produced and recorded with John Guth, Reach Up includes ten new songs for anyone on…or near their spiritual path. A voice of optimism and faith, Sandi shares her way of looking at the world, which is both joyful and authentic, offering relief during stressful times.
Called "a lifeguard in a sea of negativity," and "a born teacher of all things that help people find their dreams," Sandi weaves positive music with ancient wisdom to touch the heart and nourish the soul. Her songs are filled with musical affirmations that support listeners in making positive and lasting changes in their lives by embracing their own potential and authenticity.
As the opening lines of the title song declare, "If ever there were a time, it's Now," the release of Reach Up has the potential to quiet the anxieties during the current financial crisis. "Music gives us an 'attitude adjustment' on conscious and unconscious levels," explains Sandi. "These songs can lift even the heaviest of moods."
Enthusiastic listeners agree:
"Reach Up is nothing less than a self-growth extravaganza for the ears. The music is an added benefit to lyrics that speak to the truth of our being and how to use that truth to take control and master your life. Great music for times that are getting people down. Listen to the words and you will understand that even in such times, you can polarize your thoughts towards a happy and positive life." - Philip F. Harris, author, nationally syndicated writer, talk show host and publisher of All Things That Matter
"When I listen to your music, I am in total connection to Spirit." -- Jean, CA

Sterling Heart President Patrick Murphy served as Creative Director on the Reach Up project. "This is Sandi's best work. It represents her own growth and maturity both as an artist and as a person. This is music you hear with your heart, irresistible melodies and supportive messages that are a healing balm for these challenging times."
Strong vocals, harmonies, acoustic guitars, bass, piano and percussion deliver these tuneful songs with infectious energy. And the ideas they promote are positive and powerful. "The songs on Reach Up represent everything I believe to be true. They are the sum total of what I've learned about the way the Universe operates and they reflect where I am now on my own spiritual journey. I wrote them because they help me remember when I forget that life is an incredible, amazing, journey and they help me "stay tuned" to the vibration of love," explains Sandi.
Sterling Heart Music has been offering The Wisdom Music Collection since 2000 with the release of Transitions - Music to Soothe the Soul and Music In My Soul. Transitions, which has sold tens of thousands of copies around the world, focuses on the healing power of music and was produced as a result of Sandi's work in healthcare. The fifteen songs soothe listeners through the changes and challenges of life, and provide healing support for all phases of the journey. Music In My Soul includes thirteen empowering songs about love, life and the Law of Attraction, guaranteed to boost energy and raise vibrations. Reach Up completes the trilogy of universal, trans-denominational songs.
