The "voice" of the Emmy-nominated "Mists of Avalon" TNT/WB score, Aeone (pronounced Ay-Own) delivers a powerful body of work in this 13-song CD. With the unique vocal sound that has become her trademark, along with lush, cinematic arrangements and production, this beautifully-crafted album takes one on a journey from mystical etherea to the dark and ancient longings of the soul.
The album begins with the thundering "One Tribe", a call to prayer for all nations, which blends an East-West feel with Celtic sensibility in contemporary groove. It then flows effortlessly into the reflective and poignant title track, "POINT OF FAITH". As song follows song, the listener is carried away on an emotional tide of music, moving from the lavish, layered vocals of "Umbra Nihili" to the absolute purity of Aeone's voice in "The Last Breath". Aeone creates her rich thematic tracks by blending ethnic instruments and pads with strings and heavy grooves, alongside live players such as Irish and Blue Grass fiddles - allowing her voice to rise above it all. Jeff Silverman mixed this body of work ad also co-wrote/co-produced with Aeone the mesmerizing "She Walks with Me".
