Ann Sweeten's newest release, Love Walks Through Rain, is a deeply soul-stirring experience that envelops the listener in a blanket of lush, melodic reverie. While consistent with her world-renowned signature style, Love Walks Through Rain transcends spiritual levels and transports the listener to a higher plane. Guest Performances include Charlie Bisharat (Violin), Eugene Friesen (Cello), Nancy Rumbel (English Horn), Premik Russell-Tubbs (EWI, Soprano Saxophone), Will Ackerman (Guitar), Tom Eaton (Bass)
Sweeten has written another chapter of her musical "life's story" in which there has been difficulty and pain but the outcome is, as always, a life-affirming one. One that offers far more than a glimmer of hope: Love walks through rain; steadily, with strength and courage, and emerges, out of the fog, into the light.
In Ann's words: "I have always said that our dogs were the bookmarks in the chapters of our lives, much as my music carries the joy and pain contained in those chapters. Love Walks Through Rain is one such bookmark. I decided to name the album, Love Walks Through Rain, because it well describes this chapter of my life. There has always been plenty of love, tho' fret with many storms, such as battling Cancer for over 20 years. But Love keeps you going and I have been blessed in that: my husband has always been right by my side. Love is the steady gait as we seek to navigate life's ups and downs. And my love for my dogs and their love for me, will always warm my heart and cocoon my soul."
- For fans of Ann Sweeten and her last release, Change Is In the Wind, (#1 in radio) comes her 16th album, Love Walks Through Rain.
- This will have both full Radio/Media and Marketing campaigns.
I've had the joy and honor to have worked with Ann Sweeten for 16 years now. In that entire time I've never known her to settle for anything less than brilliance in her composition and performance...one of the most talented pianists and composers on the scene today. One thing I admire greatly in musicians are those who possess a singular musical 'voice'..they sound like themselves and no one else. Ann Sweeten is certainly one of those. Love Walks Through Rain, continues to beguile with brilliantly played melody. The accompaniment of some of the most remarkable players in the world only adds to the breadth of what Love Walks Through Rain gives to her fans. Ann's best work to date.
—Will Ackerman, Founder Windham Hill Records
Sweeten has a special gift for translating emotion into musical form...(she) excels at fashioning material that speaks with immediacy to listeners' inner lives, no matter how different their experiences might be.'
—Ron Schepper, Textura
'It's easy to imagine listeners swooning to Love Walks Through Rain and its predecessors decades from now when they present music of such emotional authenticity.'
—Ron Schepper, Textura
Love Walks Through Rain is one of the most heartrending, emotionally hard hitting piano driven albums in years..gloriously composed and performed.
—Jonathan Widran, The JW Vibe
BRILLIANT HEARTWARMING PIANO ALBUM Love Walks Through Rain is an exceptional work of art. Ann is one of the best at story telling through her musical composition.
—Chakuna Machi Asa, Artist
Love Walks Through Rain is as easy as taking in a breeze, the instrumental piano magic just flows.. Every track is unique, and each note brings a history. What I hear is music that reaches beyond New Age, and leans toward a classical piano crossover, neoclassical.
—Robin B. James, Medium.com
When I am penning this review, I am still a captive of the magical spell of her new album 'Love Walks Through Rain'. ..deeply moving instrumental piano music, a masterly accomplishment, spectacular work, a rare musical achievement.
