Dreams, Magic and Other Realities is my first collection of 8 songs for advanced vocalists.
The first song, Magical World – which you can also buy as a digital download à la carte – was premiered by yours truly at the 2012 Winnipeg Music Festival to a very positive response – really, there was quite a buzz – and I decided to compose an complete collection of songs about magic, love, and whimsical contemplations.

Being a vocalist myself, I have, in large part, made vocal works a focus of my repertoire as a composer. The power of the voice to touch the soul and convey messages through and underneath the text never fails to enthrall and delight me and it is a pleasure to bring this collection of songs to you.
The text for these songs, taken from my own poetry, explores topics both whimsical and serious – from magical contemplations to obsession to the declaration of one’s intended parameters surrounding romantic love – what a silly notion that is!
At any rate, I have strived to musically unite the flowing and lyrical with the quirky and challenging – the familiar, well-trodden paths with the uncharted landscapes – and my hope is that you find joy and musical evolution in these pages.
