I see this album as a musical journey listeners embark on. It is my hope that on this journey, they may find inner peace and a deep pool of joy in their hearts, and perhaps even an awakening in their spirituality and faith as well.

Comfort, relaxation, and uplifting music come packaged in the new CD Celebrate Breath featuring recording artists Todd Herzog, John Scott Adams, and vocalist Corrinne May. This is the twentieth in a series of Celebrate albums from Craig ‘n Co. and was co-produced by Kavin Hoo and Todd Herzog.
“It's relaxing, soothing music with lush musical beds interwoven and the haunting vocal lines of Corrinne May & Todd Herzog,” Hoo said. “I see this album as a musical journey listeners embark on. It is my hope that on this journey, they may find inner peace and a deep pool of joy in their hearts, and perhaps even an awakening in their spirituality and faith as well.”
Herzog said his heartfelt lyrics and melodic music were inspired by Hassidic spiritual leader Reb Nachman of Bratslov.
“Reb Nachman had this idea that if you repeated the 10 Psalms of Healing each day (in order), that you would be healed physically and spiritually,” said Herzog. “So, we began with these texts as a jumping-off point. Even though the final product does not expressly verbalize these texts, the wisdom contained within these verses still informs the melodies and the emotions of each of the pieces.”
The album features Warner recording artist Corrinne May on vocals and John Scott Evans on acoustic guitar. With ten tracks, the CD retails for $9.99 on CDbaby.com (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kavinhoo) and will soon be available on craignco.com and amazon.com.
“Our intention was that the listener would feel uplifted and soothed, regardless of their spiritual or religious background,” Herzog said. “This is truly an ecumenical work that will speak to the best in each one of us, whether using the music as a background for yoga or meditation or simply to feel relaxed and comforted at the end of a long day.”
