Amethyste Description: The concrete footprint of several years of venomous pain, loss, cataclysmic sadness and tumultuous life changes seen through the eyes (and voice) of a fierce and passionate woman..
ABOUT THE ARTIST
In October of 2005, a very fine musician from Germany (Gunnar Spardel of Tigerforest ) caught Amethyste's attention. One of his wonderful song "Summer Rain" was playing on the player and she HAD to click on the "view" button. Suddenly, she was transported into a new dimension where music has a soul and feelings. A place where she secretly wanted to reach for so long... She was compelled to write him a note telling him how wonderful and beautiful his music was. He replied to her later that day that he really liked her voice and if she was interested into collaborating musically to please let him know. She was mostly surprised that he replied to her kind message because she felt that his compositions were just so spectacular, somewhat intimidating at the same time. It seems that everything took an uplifting turn in 2006 when Gunnar and Amethyste started to collaborate more
extensively on several projects ranging from Trance - Dance to Ambient. They finally decided to meet in February of 2006 in NYC, then shortly after their first meeting, Gunnar came to spend 3 months in the USA focusing on music composition and production. Their love for each other fueled the creation of Amethyste's debut CD titled "Ethereal". Gunnar's extreme composing ability really showcases Amethyste's soothing and dreamy ample vocal range. The beautiful music that Amethyste and Gunnar Spardel create have been heard in radio stations in Europe as well as many internet radios. Ethereal warms the heart and shines light upon their acclaimed and distinctive style of music.

ABOUT THE ALBUM
For over a decade, I repressed this burning longing to express myself through vocal art. In trusting and carefully listening to my heart, I have finally decided to let people hear this ethereal gift that has been granted to me. Usually of a shy, cautious and reserved nature, I somehow found the strength to share a little bit of myself through my voice and the lyrics I write. When I sing, I just close my eyes and I whisper to the universe, hoping it hears my silent cries, love and dreams. Secretely, I hope that the softness of my voice can soothe a wounded soul. There is this veiled light inside of me, I speak it through my voice, it is my mission to share the beauty and the truth that are vibrating deep within each breath.
Loving who you are with all that has been given and taken away from you can really empower your being to greater things. Things that cannot be seen with your eyes, but only through the eyes of your heart: The heartbeat of life.
After being adrift for what it seems like an eternity , I finally feel at home within my own heart...
Every sequel brings a new set of challenges, as the expectations of the audience grow and shift constantly. This certainly is no exception for Amethyste's second release titled "Shimmer" which is a complementary addition to her debut album "Ethereal" soundwise. The music itself contains more dramatic moods and sound changes that will carry your mind into a world of mystery, relaxation and desire conveyed through smart and innovative measures securing once again, their distinctive style of music. All of this couldn't have been possible without the involvement of the magnificent composer Gunnar Spardel through each one of Amethyste's projects. Listening to "Shimmer" is like to lie in the dark and listen to the beautiful sounds of nature, sultry vocals and deep pulsating musical elements. This album will send you off searching for more delight and magic: You'll feel this sense of greatness within yourself. Isn't what music is all about? AMAdea Records, BULGARIA
