Alan Peterson - Music of the HeartAlan Peterson

Music of the Heart ©

Alan's second solo album has 14 tracks of his original songs that are truly "from the heart". From the opening title cut "Music Of the Heart", and songs like "Follow Your Dreams", to the final "Fly (911)", Alan lets the listener know that we are living in a world filled with love and hope. There are also  traditional love songs here, his "Circle Of Love (wedding song)" and the lovely, "Everything I had in Mind" are both wonderful tributes to the bond between committed individuals (used in many wedding celebrations).

The CD includes some country fun with "Wishin' and A Hopin'" and "When The Ocean Swallows Up The Moon", a tribute to the late great George Harrison in "Eastern Wind" and songs with Alan's band, Harmonic Convergence, including, "A Love So Right", "Cowboy In the City" and a live version of "Do You Feel the Love" all  featuring their unique three part harmony. All in all, "Music Of The Heart" is a great mix of styles and sounds and a wonderful sampling of the music that comes from the heart of Alan Peterson.

Harmonic Convergence Band - LIVEHarmonic Convergence Band

"LIVE"

Engaging, uplifting, humorous, and thought-provoking, the music of Harmonic Convergence reflects the accumulated talent, wit, and wisdom of three seasoned northwest musicians. Acoustic guitar, mandolin, and a sensitive Stratocaster support intelligent vocals with compelling three part harmonies. Rhapsodizes one fan, " Ah, the harmonies! The harmonies!" Songwriters and performers Alan Peterson and Lon Jones evoke the human condition in it's many phrases: emotional, a little political, a little spiritual and sometimes downright quirky. Vocalist Sharon McCann enthralls listeners with her rich contralto voice, described by one listener as "... just like fudge!"

You lift me up..."
Love, Louise

His songs and music are original, inspiring and meaningful as well as great to listen to as an uplifting antidote to a dreary week." Rev. John Butler Unity of Corvallis

"Alan’s music comes straight from his heart, connects to the listener’s heart, and creates a space of peace and healing.  His songs are the kind you can listen to over and over again and never tire of the melodies or lyrics.  They touch one at deep levels.  Other songs are just plain fun!  They are great to listen to in the car, on the treadmill, or at work."  Reverend Robin Haruna Unity of Bandon

"The Circle of Love ceremony including original music by Alan Peterson was the most beautiful we ever attended."
Sharon M.

"By the end of the ceremony, our guests were awed by the beauty of the music that Alan has actually written himself. This made our wedding totally unique from all other's weddings. When Alan sang "Circle of Love" I think the entire room glowed in joy, and tears were flowing throughout the room. I just love seeing grown men cry!"
Ann S.

"Alan composes his music by ear, heart, and instinct rather than by rule - even though he knows the rules well. Additionally he is one of the most pleasant, supportive, and accountable musicians I have ever worked with. I say this as a minister who deals with hundreds of musicians a year."
~ Unity Rev Teri Hawkins, bestselling author

"Alan's music calls me to a higher place. It touches places within me and reveals a Truth that I had forgotten existed. Alan's music is filled with love and joy and hope." Craig H.

"Alan's lovely voice, emotional delivery and the beauty of the music he writes is indicative of the spirit and gentleness of a man who is not afraid to let the world know that he is a self realized person and willingly exposes his soft side to the world, for the benefit of all concerned. You cannot come away from one of his concerts or just listening to a CD, unchanged. As an opera singer for many years, I am accustomed to listening for quality, with Alan's work, you listen for pleasure." Reverend Gail Key-Benson

"What I enjoy about Alan's music is the positive message about the presence of love and spirit in our everyday world. It touches on the challenges of being "at the crossroads of life" and the freedom of feeling "at times I am so beautiful". The depth of Alan's lyrics allow for listening to the CD time and time again. And often the "aha" comes from listening to a song that I have heard before, but not thought about in a particular way until that very moment. I highly recommend his music AND his message." Brenda E

charm lend him a fine stage presence.... for Alan and his music, it is
indeed "a wonderful life"." Liz D.

"Alan Peterson's original compositions are full of positivity, sincerity and intelligence with sounds and grooves that capture an American sensibility. He is not afraid to "speak his truth" even if it means challenging traditional thought or stepping into the realm of spirituality. He is able to touch a place deep inside of you in a way that makes you want to hear his songs again and again." Gil Reynolds Singer/Songwriter
