Biography

Enchanted Realms - The Music




Listening to Enchanted Realms, one feels as though a layered veil of  darkness is being lifted, and the emerging dreamscape, lit by moons and  stars, is transforming into a place where magical things can happen and  almost anything can be believed in.  


Luminous  melodies, sparkling with the celestial, are at the core of their sound,  exquisitely performed on Harpguitar, Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Keyboard/Synth, Bass/String Pedals,  Violin, Neo-Celtic harp, wood flutes, renaissance recorders, penny  whistles, percussion, and haunting vocals.  


Enchanted Realms has  created a vivid world of poetic and fanciful imagery woven around themes  immersed in “Love’s treasures and varied secrets”, and stretching  across vast panoramas into, “Lands far beyond the mystic”.  


Utilizing  a sophisticated palette of colors for painting their original musical  expressions, Enchanted Realms skillfully delivers each song with  passion, warmth, love and joy, as well as with a graceful charm, quiet  wit and a relaxed atmosphere of playfulness.  ​

Combining  musical energies, these exceptional artists have created a remarkably  sophisticated and beautiful sound for Enchanted Realms.  With soulful  dedication they unveil each original composition through myriad layers  of instrumental and vocal complexities - drawing from classical,  medieval, Celtic, new age, gypsy and European folklore influences.  Sometimes lively, at other times breathtaking and divine, their songs  are vividly scripted with old world themes of love and romance, and  sacred ideals of the spirit.  Poetically interpreted and passionately  performed, Enchanted Realms music will transport its listeners to a land  beyond their dreams, to a place of beauty and light, and for just a  little while listeners will enjoy a sweet and gentle respite from the  hectic challenges of modern day life. 
With an air of graciousness  and familiarity that seems to beckon the soul home, Enchanted Realms  music is inspiring and original entertainment at its finest. Their show  is a delightful experience for all ages.
