Silk Road – Part 2: What Peace Looks Like

This is Part 2 of a series of blog posts on my new forthcoming CD, SILK ROAD – Inspirational Journeys Across Planet Earth.  If you missed the previous post, please click here to read Part 1.

A quick summary my new CD:  SILK ROAD is a project that weaves together music and ideas that are shared by individuals in our own experiences the world over.   The Silk Road CD has evolved into a collection of journey songs.  Some are solitary journeys of the spirit within.  Some are love songs — journeys of the heart.  And others issue songs — outward journeys, looking at the world as it is and as it could be.

=======================================

I was going to start this second post by talking about the title song “Silk Road.”  That’s where the CD’s concept really began for Peter Link, my producer and main songwriter on the CD.  This song really defined the album for him.

But for me, the genesis of another song on the CD, “What Peace Looks Like,” was what gave me initial direction to the SILK ROAD experience.

“What Peace Looks Like” is one of the issue songs, or outward journeys on the CD. It’s a joyful, uptempo piece, with Afro-Caribbean music.  It has a serious message set to infectious rhythms that give the song both a depth and a certain childlike quality.
