Tir Na Nog expanded their horizons on their 1972 sophomore release by adding drums (Barry DeSouza) and bass (Larry Steele), as well as some effective string arrangements. Produced by the legendary Tony Cox (Caravan, Françoise Hardy, Family), A Tear and a Smile retained all of Sonny Condell and Leo O'Kelly's offbeat phrasing, playful melodic deviations, and pastoral balladry, while subtly turning an eye to the prospects of a little commercial appeal…
Born in silence, coiling out of the shadows, and spitting like the cobra, comes Kundalini Rising, the 9th album from This Morn’ Omina. A primal shriek from across the weeping wasteland, from the well of the ancients to the modern urban primitive, hailing for the violent awakening of a world asleep. As art is the decoration of space, music is the decoration of time, and its source, the energy of Kundalini demands to be shaken loose from the prison of intellect by the drive of a forcing beat. In the twirl of a Dervish, the spin of a Sufi, the euphoria beyond the drudge is yours to grasp. We beckon you, the listener, to travel with us through realms past, present, and yet to come, through the darkness and the light, to celebrate the dance of creation on our souls’ journey without end. The Kundalini is always within us, endlessly striving and seeking to transform, the base to gold, mediocrity to greatness. Raise your eyes to the ecstasy that resides beyond the doubt. Do you not know you are Gods?
Celtic Woman: Destiny is the tenth studio album by the group Celtic Woman. This is Celtic Woman's first album to feature their newest members Mairead Carlin and Éabha McMahon. Destiny features vocalists Susan McFadden, Mairead Carlin, Éabha McMahon, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt, with former member Méav Ní Mhaolchatha and Rebecca Winckworth as a guest. Tara McNeill, who would later become a principal performer in Celtic Woman, performed the harp in the Destiny DVD and PBS TV special as part of the orchestra. When PBS transmitted its video of the Destiny show, a cloaked woman (Dublin-based Irish actor, film maker, dancer and part-time model Sophie Merry) appeared in the titles sequence and the sequences that framed the pledge breaks. The album was nominated for Best World Music Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. This was the first Grammy nomination for the group.
