FORBIDDEN SONGS is a collection of original music from the extraordinary healer, teacher, and musician Tom Kenyon. In each song, Kenyon shares a great deal about his own life and struggles towards enlightenment. "My Father and His Son" illuminates the unspoken conversations between families and allows the listener to feel a sense of healing just by playing the track. Kenyon is known for his healing recordings and FORBIDDEN SONGS applies his unique brand of psychology, psychoacoustics, and tone healing to each cut. "Starlight Cafe" sets a picturesque scene where Kenyon is sitting at a table in a bar and meeting old friends from his past. This simple conceit for a song becomes complex and touching when paired with Kenyon's compelling and distinctive voice and a melodic piano accompaniment. Listeners may feel compelled to set their own table and speak to their own memories. The track "Magic" is about the esoteric and unknowable aspects of healing, and will give listeners an instant understanding of the power of Kenyon's music. Unique, powerful, and mysterious, Tom Kenyon is an unusual musician that deserves great recognition.
