Journey to Places in My Soul
The 4th Album of original music by self-taught, cinematic, electronic composer/instrumentalist Vicki Logan. Here she uses her flute skills in addition to keyboards and synths. Her arrangements vary from a simple sax and piano duet to a full blown orchestration. It's amazing to hear the versatility of the material. ************** Vicki Logan is a self-taught composer/musician from Minnesota who strives to create music that is both inspirational and uplifting. People deal with situations that can be seemingly unbearable at times and they need to know that it's going to be okay. Vicki's music can be that little spark of hope in times of challenge for many people; it can be that inspirational voice saying 'Hey! You can do this. You can make it.' 'The Journey To the Places In My Soul' is Vicki Logan's fourth CD of original music to date and descibes one journey of many that we take in life; the initial idea or dream from conception to completion. The CD starts out with a simple idea expressed by piano and saxophone signifying the dream, 'Twilight Dreams of Paradise'. The musical trip actually begins with the second track entitled 'The Journey' which signifies the inital step each individual takes towards accomplishing the dream. That song, and all the songs thereafter, incorporate various elements of pop, celtic, rock, country, classical and more because we are exposed to all different types of experiences. Our journey comes to an end with the ninth track, 'To the Places In My Soul'. Along the way, we have had experiences and gained additional knowledge that has influenced our dream and changed it somewhat. Afterall, we try new things and take from it what we need and leave what we don't. The final track results in reevaluating what our dream has become. The dream is still there...the main idea is still there...but the song has changed somewhat because of our experiences. Thus we have, 'Twilight Dreams of Paradise (Revisited)'. It's a new way to look at our original dream. 'I hope that this CD will help to show you that anything is possible. Just believe in yourself enough to go after your dreams. The only one stopping you from accomplishing anything is you...'
