ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Geela’s highly anticipated new release The Best of Geela Parish is a follow-up album to her previous bestselling and critically-acclaimed CD The Veil of Life which she wrote.

This life-affirming album, most of which is written by her, is as versatile as the artist herself. Its diversity is “like a magic carpet celebrating the human spirit in the realm of infinite possibilities,” as observed by Deepak Chopra.

The CD offers an extraordinary collection of inspiring songs and a distinctive musical and vocal style featuring a wide range of musical styles and genres including a fascinating blend of elements of country, Pop, Rock, and Gospel that transcends all boundaries. Geela’s immense vocal and songwriting talent radiates throughout each song.

The collection is highlighted by Pop Fusion - a unique fusion of Pop and enchanting sounds from around the world with predominately Latin and Middle Eastern influences, featuring the use of exotic musical instrumentation like the bouzouki (Greek guitar), oud (Moroccan guitar) and the dumbek (Persian hand drums). These originals are laced with infectious and timeless arrangements and fused with illuminating lyrics containing an uplifting and unifying message of hope and eternal life for all.

Geela’s music is an affirmation of our true spiritual nature and an invitation to the listener to venture down the path of self-discovery and spiritual journeys into the unknown. P.J. Birosik, Nationally Syndicated Music Reviewer wrote that, “Geela’s music connects us to our spiritual roots filled with earthy soul and realization and themes of emotional enlightenment.” She went on to describe Geela’s music as “musically innovative, rhythmically exciting, lyrically inspirational and vocally powerful and distinctive. Simply put, a fusion made in heaven.” As such, the album offers a unique musical experience like no other. Greg Ozimek, Phenomenews Publication commented that, “Geela’s music should be an instant hit in every home where children and adults can be positively influenced by Geela’s lyrics.”

This innovative brand of musical style, which reflects the tastes of what has become a global community, was pioneered by award-winning Geela Parish whose music has been recorded by such music icons as Patti La Belle.

Geela has also developed a vocal style all of her own and praised by Accent Magazine which observed that, “her voice has a distinctly captivating quality which is enhanced through the use of intriguing ethnic trilling.”

Geela’s distinctive vocal style, powerful vocal range and stage presence have been praised for being one of the very few artists whose voice and stage presence are captivating enough without having to resort to a bag of tricks.

The album opens with one of Geela’s memorable original songs with emotional longing, which her fans are sure to love entitled Sahara. With a distinctive musical style Geela delivers this stunning Pop-Fusion song flawlessly.

Other great originals are the salsa-flavored dance track Bailalero which is about celebrating the dance of life and the importance of living life to its fullest.

The Enya-like vibe chill out ambiance of Like A Circle, which includes reflective reassurance of eternal life is sure to bring instant comfort to everyone.

The innovative fusion of Pop and a Persian/Moroccan hypnotically beautiful beat in Faith Is Magic offers a musical adventure and a temporary sanctuary from the daily grind and a natural pick-me-up.

The Sweetest Memories – an original song and a hidden gem with a country flavor.

The artist's personal vision for a better world is reflected in such message oriented original songs like the Gospel laced song Someday We’ll See The Light and the Rock flavored song Change written specifically for Garth Brooks.

The listener is invited to go down the memory lane with such classic songs as Unchained Melody in English and Spanish and Reflections of My Life. Fans of these classics will marvel at Geela’s stunning interpretation of these classic compositions as she sings her heart out revealing some of her finest artistic masterpiece ever.

Ahora Azme El Amor is an exquisite ballad in Spanish, which Geela delivers with great sensitivity and passion.

The album ends with Geela’s soul-stirring original song For the Love of God. This inspirational song contains a powerful message of unity and hope for all. It captures Geela’s social conscious and a vision for a better world beyond senseless violence. Hailed by the media as The Healing Goddess of Pop as a visionary artist, Geela’s story is one of the most extraordinary stories in contemporary music. Self-taught vocally, with no formal musical training, she is the only artist known to compose music without the benefit of playing any musical instruments. She also sings in ten different languages authentically and writes lyrics, columns and books in a language that is neither her first or second. This rare phenomenon is attributed to her near-death experience resulting from surviving a horrific car crash. As a result of this life-changing event, Geela gained other unusual abilities such as psychic and healing while discovering her true calling to use her talents to become a force for good and contribute towards a brighter future for all. She is best known for her passion to transform lives through her different endeavors from music and books to advocacy through her nonprofit organization.

Geela Parish was born in Iran and raised in a small town in Israel. Since an early age, Geela was exposed to many different styles and types of music because of her father who played various musical instruments including the sitar. He made sure to instill the love of music in her and her four siblings some of whom went on to become successful professional musicians/producers.

At the age of 19 Geela moved to Los Angeles to pursue a big dream as a singer in a language that was neither her first or second. She was eventually able to overcome years of struggles and achieve extraordinary accomplishments, and not limited to music only.

Geela’s long and illustrious musical career, which began at the age of eleven, includes the release of many critically-acclaimed albums in different languages, music videos, achievement awards, soundtracks for movies and television shows, media appearances, starring in the hit DVD ‘How to Know God’ with Deepak Chopra, world tours sharing the stage with such top recording artists as Dolly Parton, and rave reviews by the media and world-renowned personalities alike.

She is also the author of the critically-acclaimed Amazon #1 bestseller, The American Dream, and founder of the nonprofit organization One Spirit, One World dedicated to supporting human and animal causes. Geela is the co-creator of a reality TV show called “Touched by a Four-Legged Angel” and an inspiring documentary film called “Barbara Streisand & I.

As a recognized life-coach/success expert who specializes in inspiring hope and action, Geela empowers people with life-changing knowledge to enable them to pursue their own dreams regardless of the obstacles in their way.

“I really hope to inspire as many people as possible to take the biggest adventure ever - to live the life of their dreams!” – Geela Parish

In recognition for being such an exceptionally gifted artist Todd Brabec, Executive Director of ASCAP announced that, “Geela’s music is truly special, inspirational and timely. ASCAP is very proud to have such a unique artist as its member. I sincerely hope Geela shares her message of hope with the rest of the world as well.”

Other world renowned professionals such as Jack Scovil of Scovil, Chichak, Galen Literary Agency noted that, “Certainly Geela is a very special and gifted artist who speaks so inspiringly to the ever wider spiritual awakening of our times. I most assuredly think that Geela has the beguiling talent and inspirational message.... Geela may well reach the level of success of Deepak Chopra and Anthony Robbins.”


This CD is a must if you like creative, original and inspirational music.

REVIEWS

“A revolutionary sound that will both uplift and inspire the listener, Geela’s The Veil of Life is a soulful blend of new age and new world beat, sprinkled with an exotic touch of Middle Eastern sounds. Geela’s personal story is unprecedented; although she composed and wrote the entire CD, she has never played any musical instruments and has no formal musical training. Her vocals are hauntingly beautiful and full of passion and mystery…

Drawing from spiritual principles, Geela’s album The Veil of Life was inspired from a near-death experience she had after surviving a near-fatal car accident. After this traumatic awakening, Geela found that if she listened to her Higher Power, she would actually achieve her life’s dream…she was suddenly able to write and compose the beautiful music she treasured from the deepest part of her being…Geela’s powerful “message-music” has been heralded by Deepak Chopra as being like “a magic carpet ride….celebrating the human spirit in the realm of infinite possibilities.”
- Music Review by Awareness Magazine


“Most vocal albums in the new age/world/uplifting-soul/spirit-based genre still just don’t cut the mustard. I’m happy to say The Veil of Life easily makes the grade. Ms. Geela’s album The Veil of Life, should be an instant hit in every progressive church, new age conclave of conscious people, and homes where children and adults can be positively influenced by her lyrics.

Let me here define that term “New Age” as meaning a shared belief in the positive progression of life and living, that we can change our futures by changing our thinking and by taming our zoon of repetitive thoughts, and as a revival of he experience of living life in this moment rather than in some future or past. The “now” is where Geela found herself after a very difficult and challenging period she calls her “Black hold experience.” After this, she was connected to a higher power that enabled her to write music with a healing message. Her composing The Veil of Life was no less miraculous. She asked her new ‘silent partner’ for what she wanted and then waited for the lyrics and music to be revealed to her, usually during mediation, dreams or long solitary walks. She used her voice to compose the music as one would use musical instruments.”

….Geela’s voice is strong, professional and rounded with inspiration from personal experience. Her lyrics are positive and uplifting and suitable for all. Her musical scoring is lively and multi-dimensional. In The Veil of Life she’s included a unique fusion of pop and enhancing sounds from around the world, featuring the use of exotic musical instruments like the bouzouki (Greek guitar) and Moroccan guitar and dumbek (Persian hand drums). There is expressive flamenco guitar. Salsa-flavored dance, reflective and contemplative ambiance, and an innovative fusion sould of Persian/Moroccan beat. Remember, all of this is spiced with Geela’s wonderful voice and her appealing messages rooted in transcended emotion and realization.

Geela’s music is an affirmation of humanity’s true spiritual nature and is an invitation to the listener to venture down the path of self-discovery. As Geela says, “Like a circle, life has no beginning and no end.”

Music to my ears
I stumbled upon this album by Geela recently and I've got to say it's a fresh change from the typical music I listen to. If you're into some classic music with a Spanish twist, search no more. You've found a great album to jam to this summer. My personal favorite is her cover of Unchained Melody. Do yourself a favor and check this album out, you won't regret it!
