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.
