Few singer/songwriters have found commercial success in strictly new age circles, but John Astin's songs of love and surrender are finding an audience larger than the norm. His universal messages are filled with love of life and a sacred simplicity that will serve to open the hearts and ears of listeners, and his fourth effort is his most satisfying yet. Astin's tenor occupies the higher registers almost exclusively, both in tonality and aspiration. There are similarities to Michael Tomlinson, and fine musical backing with an occasional renaissance tinge.
