The new world music project by award winning recording artist Amy Sky.
TWILIGHT ROSE is a collection of original, inspirational songs in Hebrew and English. The world music record is a fusion of East- meets-West influences, infused with rock and gospel. Sitar, dilruba, pennywhistle, and harmonium, blend with a soft rock rhythm section and shimmering stacks of vocals to create an evocative soundscape. The title is inspired by the song “Erev Shel Shoshanim” which literally means “Evening of Roses”.
Amy sings on the cd, plays the piano and harmonium and composed or co-wrote 8 of the 11 songs . She drew her inspiration for the Hebrew text largely from the prayers of Kabbalat Shabat - the Friday night Sabbath service.
The album was recorded in Toronto and Los Angeles. The Toronto sessions were helmed by Juno award winning engineer John Bailey. The stellar cast of musicians includes Justin Abedin (Jack Soul), Jason Fowler (John McDermott) and Michael Thompson ( Celine Dion, Sarah Brightman) on guitar, Lyle Molzan and Maury Lafoy (Jann Arden), on drums and bass and George Koller (Loreena McKennitt) on sitar, dilruba and Japanese Bass. Amy’s guest artists include PBS Tenor phenom Mark Masri, Egyptian vocalist Maryem Tollar, woodwind virtuoso Ron Korb, and Sky’s own husband and children - Marc, (vocals) Zoe (vocals) and Ezra (piano, B3 Organ and percussion).
Amy will develop unique live performance experiences with this project. Her vision is to create a public venue for people looking for positive connection, with sacred and secular spiritual music and a contemporary aesthetic.
The songs are intended to be “congregational” in nature - suited for an interactive worship and/or entertainment experience.
