‘There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in’ Leonard Cohen

The Lightness of Dark is an ethereal and collaborative journey into the depths of loss, mourning and recovery. Recorded in Australia for Piano, Violin, Quartet (Kanimbla Quartet) and Voice, the album focuses on the way forward and the exploration of lightness within the dark.

We all experience loss at some time in our lives, loss of health, friendship, a pet, lost youth or the loss of a loved one. When real life becomes art, experiences can be shared, learned from and resonate with others in similar situations. This album invites the listener to find the beauty in the sadness and move forward in a positive way.
