Sparks and Seeds!
Official release date: Aug 5, 2018
A Note from Randy:
As a lyricist, it has always amazed me how many musicians and lovers of music tell me (when I ask them) how, most of the time, they hardly notice the lyrics of a song – It’s primarily the music that speaks to them. For me, it’s the story. I love the sound of poetry fleshed out in the lift and fall of well composed music enhanced by a power that lies far beyond words.
Occasionally, as I listen, something sparks inside of me; A lyrical or musical moment ignites something within, something luminous, undefinable. Sometimes a particular phrase in a song resonates so deeply, it’s as if a small seed has planted itself within me, only to take root and sprout later in surprising, unexpected ways....
Sparks and seeds.
It is in this spirit we offer you this collection of ballads.
My most heartfelt gratitude to all of the stellar musicians who have contributed their talents to this project, and to the world class singers who have made them their own and literally breathed life into them – Rebecca, Lisa, Leonard, Emily, Alison – Thank you.
And thank you especially to Peter, my creative genius co-conspirator on the path... There are no words.
This record is dedicated to my beloved Patrick and Alex without whom, none of this would exist. You light up and deepen my life, you are my
constant inspiration, my greatest joy, my heart.
"One of the most powerful qualities that music holds is its ability to reveal to us the subtle inner workings of the human soul. Through Randy Phillips voice, music and lyrics we learn something about ourselves. The journey is a delightful one. She is a true artist."
