A Seeker's Slumber
Cheryl B. Engelhardt
Half of the tracks are lyrical expressions, while half of the album highlights the voice as an instrument alongside intricate piano performances and even a live kalimba, all performed, engineered and arranged by Engelhardt. With special features by GRAMMY winners Joanie Leeds and Chava Mirel, 37 members of Cheryl’s independent musician mastermind AMPLIFY plus an appearance by SNL drummer Shawn Pelton, and even Cheryl’s own deceased father’s voice, the collaborations speak to the breadth of the emotions found on A Seeker’s Slumber. Listeners will experience what has been called “a goddess’s song” in “Unwind”, and “a sense of grounding” in “Ithaca” and the other instrumental pieces. The magic that is unleashed in “Awæcnian”, “Mother Gaia”, and “Anyway You Choose…” is unprecedented in Cheryl’s prolific body of work. Enjoy!
