ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SACD Hybrid/Multichannel 5.1 surround version. Winner 2013 International radio voted ZMR Awards Best Piano Album.

Far from the shore, The winds will whisper,
600 Years and I will be home….

Celtic/ Contemporary Instrumental, composer and singer Fiona Joy Hawkins celebrates her most epic and significant album 600 Years in Moment. “I have often wondered how globalisation effects music and how history changes our perception of instruments and the musical culture of our ancestors,” says Fiona.

600 Years in a Moment was recorded using a contemporary Australian piano with ancient instruments from around the world. Fiona’s concept is to bring instruments and their unique sounds from villages across the globe to explore the hidden musical treasures of cultures in a modern musical setting. The album is eclectic, acoustic, beautifully produced, and defies genre by bringing Classical, Jazz and World music together with New Age.

Exploring time and history, bringing the past to the present, joining old with new and finding origins while looking into the future, 600 Years in a Moment is a journey from Fiona’s native Australia that travels sonically around the world with the distinctly Celtic flavour of her ancestors while combining sounds from other ancient cultures.

Recorded around the world from Newcastle Australia, Los Angeles California; New York,NY, Bremen and Portland, Maine; Halifax, Canada, and Imaginary Road Studios in Vermont, the album is also unique for the production credits that include Corin Nelsen, Will Ackerman and Fiona Joy Hawkins. 600 Years in a Moment was recorded in 96/24 and will be released in several formats including CD, SACD (hybrid/multichannel) and double vinyl album with bonus track for audiophile listeners.

Only recently Fiona was introduced to Stuart and Sons after a move to Newcastle NSW. A friend suggested she visit one of his clients who made pianos nearby. “The Stuart piano factory was literally two minutes from where I was living. It was an unfortunate time in my life where for over a year I had no piano at all. Then I met Wayne Stuart who offered his showroom full of concert grands for me to practice. I felt like I had won the lottey!”says Fiona.

All great art is a collaboration and there are some amazing contributions on 600 Years in a Moment. Produced by Will Ackerman, Corin Nelsen and Fiona Joy Hawkins, engineered by Corin Nelsen and Mastered by Bob Ludwig, the album had pedigree the moment it left the studio.

Contributions from Rebecca Daniel (Australian Chamber Orchestra), Eugene Friesen (Paul Winter Consort), Tony Levin (Paul McCartney), Jeff Haynes (Pat Metheney), Heather Rankin (Rankin Family), Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega), Tod Boston, Paul Jarman, Michael Jackson, Phil Aaberg, Alfredo Rolando Ortiz and many others give the album its historical value and grace.

ARIA Finalist, MusicOZ Winner, ZMR multiple category winner (Including Album of the Year) and current IMA Finalist Fiona Joy Hawkins is set to take on a bigger stage and push the New Age genre boundaries with awards that have crossed genres to include World Music, New Age, Jazz, Classical and a Best Performance nomination shared with Pete Seeger as a top 5 finalist in the Independent Music Awards.
“One of the brightest lights in the contemporary instrumental genre Fiona Joy Hawkins is poised to move into stardom and we have only to watch to see it happen” - Will Ackerman (Founder Windham Hill Records).
