Love, Light and Water
Topic: Michael Stribling
Michael Stribling (born 1951) is an award-winning American musician, best known for his series of New Age albums. His debut New Age album, “Songs of Hope and Healing,” was named Best Electronic Album of 2006 by New Age Reporter. "Love, Light, and Water" is Michael Stribling's fourth CD to date. Stribling is not unique in his musical quest to soothe and heal, but one of the things that sets him apart from many of the other composers in this genre is that his music is not all sunshine and puffy clouds—he allows some of the darker and more pensive aspects of life into his music, which is a more realistic picture of the human experience. The music on this album is divided into three suites that "celebrate the hope and promise of new love, the energizing beauty of light, and the sustaining power of water." Although the music is often quite orchestrated, Stribling creates all of his music himself on keyboards. Some of it is quite melodic, and other pieces are more ambient and atmospheric—all of it is very beautiful.

Another Day In Paradise
Now Playing: on the RadioNuages.com stations
Topic: Michael Stribling
Another Day in Paradise is an offering of 11 instrumental compositions that celebrate the basic themes of a typical day in paradise: processions and celebration; morning, afternoon, and evening; the land, ocean, and sky; youth; spiritual/physical union; and dance. "Another Day In Paradise" is the second release from multi-instrumentalist Michael Stribling. This new CD is a soundtrack of sorts for a typical day in paradise, and literally picks up where "Out of the Darkness, Into the Light" left off. More electronic and ambient than acoustic or melodic, the music brings the listener an uplifting mood and a positive state of mind. Johnny Mathis' percussionist and a radio disc jockey for a number of years, Stribling combines those pop sensibilities with his advanced training in psychology and spiritual studies to present a unique musical point of view. Calling his label "Leelah," which means "divine play," Stribling's mission is "to help others in their journey toward wholeness through the gift of music, by creating works that inspire and uplift the human spirit." Stribling uses a variety of ethnic musical stylings to give his music a universal theme that can bridge a multitude of cultures. Unlike some of the other spirituality-themed recordings out there, Stribling does not present a world of all sweetness and light. His music has a strong positive feel to it, but does not ignore some of the darker moments or influences that come into everyone's lives.
