START YOUR DAY WITH EMMY-WINNER FAITH RIVERA'S NEW RELEASE "SUNCATCHER: MORNING MUSIC FOR THE HIP & THE SACRED"
Positive Pop Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Producer Faith Rivera, has released her fourth, most eclectic album yet - "Suncatcher: Morning Music for the Hip & the Sacred" now available online at TowerRecords.com, CDBaby.com, Itunes.com & other digital retailers. Faith, a 2003 Emmy-winner for Outstanding Original Song, produced Suncatcher alongside arranger, producer, musician, & co-writer Ted Jacobs in Burbank, CA at House at the Corner Productions. From the CD cover, an original Hawaiian quilt-like painting of the sun by Long Beach artist Margie Darrow-Stretz, to the sparkling music production and world-class musicians, Suncatcher is a masterfully crafted album with 12 musical gems to start your morning in style.
The album begins as your day should with the musical motto: "You've got to choose Love" done as a short acapella-jazz piece. Next is ukulele-infused "In the Morning" penned by Barry Gibb (the only cover song on the album) & performed by ukulele virtuoso, Daniel Ho. Feel Faith's sensitive, soulful style on the piano in fan-favorites "God Is..." & "Come See Her Smile." Hear the inspiring play between Faith & 3 of LA's most powerful vocalists (Gerald White, Mica Fischer, Harold Payne) featured on "Vision." Experience a bass part that sings as played by Crusaders bassist, David Hughes, especially on multi-lingual tune "Song of One" which features a Hawaiian Reiki prayer, Japanese Buddhist chanting & Zuriani (Grammy-winning songwriter) singing an Islamic prayer.
Another highlight is "Women of Today" already being used by women's conferences, workshops & retreats as an anthem song. This upbeat track celebrates women from all walks of life & reflects this musically with a number of inspiring women at the end of the song (including an HBO-featured poet, a teacher, indy singer/ songwriters, moms, a Disney exec, & more).
Originally born & raised in Hawaii, Faith has made southern California her home for years now since graduating in the 90's from Cal State Long Beach. Her Oprah-esque music, inspirational & empowering like Oprah herself, is heard around the world on tv, internet radio, through other artist releases, and through Faith's Madonna-meets-Beyonce-meets-Enya live musical performances from NY to Maui, Japan to Costa Rica.
Suncatcher, as it was originally intended by Faith, is being used by conscious-minded folks around the world to ease into their mornings & set positive intentions for the coming day! It's about living each day deliberately with a sense of groundedness in joy, success, love & all that good stuff! There's no better time to plant your "seeds" than in the morning with Suncatcher blaring from the speakers :)
