Steve Sheppard

A rare panacea of musical delight and bliss
There are occasions when you are working away at something and from the far reaches of the room you hear something quite amazing, so much so that you stop what you’re doing and ask just “what it is that I am listening to?” This is exactly what happened to me the other day, when I heard my wife listening to The Light Within by Juliet Lyons and now here I am reviewing the album, how lucky I am?
This beautiful sojourn within music starts with the first track entitled Lokah Samastah; this piece features the talents of Rupesh Menon and is a beautifully fluent and uplifting offering that is simply the perfect way to start an album of this style and content.
I have heard it said that listening to Lyons is like listening to the angels calling across the great galactic divide, this would appear to be so, especially when you literally bathe in this next piece called Om Shanti. Of course a very well-known song in new age circles, but this is one that stands out, not only for its multi-instrumental nature, but the sublime class of Juliet Lyons amazing vocal range and harmonic sensitivities.
At nearly seven and a half minutes Flow is the longest offering off the album and gives us, an opportunity to just be, to relax totally in a pool of harmonic bliss. Those gentle but rhythmic Tabla’s drive the journey and the Sitar creates such a sublime sense of oneness all around us. The floating nature of the track and the choral brilliance of Lyons, created for me my personal favourite track off the album, so just, flow!
From flow, to Calm, now here we have something fresh, new and exciting, the lyrics are quite emotive and reminds me of my past, when my wife would say to me, just breath, its ok, be calm. I think personally this should be released as a single, I am pretty certain it would be a massive hit. The vocals are so touching and beautifully delivered that it truly moves the soul; the percussive beat is modern and incredibly crisp, again another favourite of mine.
The piano leads us into a really gentle instrumental offering now called Dawning Equilibrium. The delicacy of this piece is pure tranquillity on a bed of freshly grown serenity. The soothing tones of this multi-instrumental composition is indeed perfectly balanced in all ways, and leaves the listener with a sense of emotional bliss, one that raises the energies as it goes but always retaining that much needed equilibrium.
I had been looking forward to this track, it reminds me of that time of day in the very early hours of the morning, just as the sunrises and humanity is still largely sleep, and it’s called Stillness. Juliet Lyons has a voice that seems to caress your senses with the ease of a white dove taking flight. The serene dimension that this piece manifests is well worth spending a lot of time in; I also have to mention the strings within this offering, as they are so very endearing to the musical palette.
As we move forever onward into this new realm of angelic music, we come across a composition called Eternal Now. Note first the foundations created by the dreamy keyboards, and then a subtle acoustic guitar joins the amazing Ron Korb on flute for a simply breath-taking opus of sound. The mantra is the now, something each and every day I align myself with, after all what else is there other than this eternal now? The balance and positivity of this song is an anthem for us all.
One of the most fascinating songs off the album for me personally is called Heal You; it reminds me of a band I use to adore in the early part of this century called Kin Za Za. The production on this track is so addictive and beautifully layered, and another that could possibly be labelled as potential single material. Allow the music to heal you, this is a musical opportunity to simply bliss out and enjoy a moment of tranquil vocals by the artist.
It’s quite incredible to think, but it’s true, we are at the penultimate piece off the release and this final but one offering is a gift called The Light Within. The tone of this song is perfection; I could drift away with ease to it. I also found something quite healing about this piece as well; however that was more than likely due to the incredibly well-crafted build, construction and progression of the composition, one that is a real stand out piece among many, another anthem perhaps?
We reach that final shoreline of musical mastery and as we do so Juliet Lyons presents us with one more song to take along on our way, it is quite simply called Shine. The messages in all you do, with each breath you take are just shine. The performance by Lyons is both meaningful and sung with an honest intent and an open heart. This has to be simply the best way to leave an album of this nature, one that will leave the listener filled with both love and joy.
The Light Within by Juliet Lyons is a revelation and a real shot in the arm for the vocal wing of the new age genre, something that had been needed for quite some time. Lyons floating, but pristine vocals are a treasure to listen to, especially as the artist creates an all-encompassing collection of great compositions that we can all relate to and get something from. The Light Within by Juliet Lyons is one of those rare panaceas of musical delight and bliss.

From MainlyPiano
Juliet Lyons and a very impressive group of supporting artists have created a peaceful and uplifting musical refuge for healing, stress relief, relaxation, meditation and pure musical enjoyment with "The Light Within." Lyons, a singer/songwriter and composer for film and television, is best-known for her soaring, emotional vocals in movie trailers as well as in Trance and New Age music. Coming from a place of love, Juliet’s expressive voice touches the heart with warmth and sincerity. The album is subtitled “Songs for Yoga, Healing & Inner Peace,” and although it was conceived as “music for a purpose,” it is also a soothing and relaxing listening experience with its messages of love, peace and living in the present. Lyons’ varied musical life makes itself known within her music, blending new age, world, pop and soundtrack stylings to create a unique and very beautiful sound. Guest artists include Rupesh Menon (chants), Judy Kang (cello), Ron Korb (flute), David Vito Gregoli (programming, sitar, bass and guitars), and Ricky Kej (keyboards, programming). Lyons wrote all of the songs, provides vocals for each piece, and also plays Native flute and piano.

"The Light Within" begins with “Lokah Samastah,” a lively song with an infectious rhythm that features chants (Lyons and Menon), keyboards (Kej), guitars (Allen DeSomer), santoor (Vanil Vegas) and tabla (Karthik K). It opens with a droning sound before Lyons’ lovely voice enters with a heartfelt prayer for peace and love. “Om Shanti” doesn’t have lyrics, but Lyons’ ethereal voice caresses the mind and the soothes the soul. David Vito Gregoli is a master of many world instruments, and he plays sitar, bass and guitars as well as programming on “Flow.” Lyon’s voice floats on a peaceful cloud of sound while the only word in the lyrics is the songtitle. I really like this one! “Calm” is in a more pop style with breathy vocals and a strong, slow beat. “Dawning Equilibrium” is a quiet instrumental that features Lyons on Native flute. There is quite a bit of piano in this one, too, along with atmospheric keyboard sounds - also a favorite. “Stillness” features Judy Kang’s gorgeous cello playing and Lyons’ one-word vocals (the title) - hypnotic! “Eternal Now” was co-written with Doug Lyons and provides a much-needed reminder to not live in the past or the future, but to “Live where you are / In the eternal now.” Ron Korb and his flute really soar on this beautiful song! “Heal You” also has a very pop sound and could be the music behind the closing credits of a movie. Judy Kang returns on the title track, as does Allen DeSomer. Also a poignant instrumental that includes piano, keyboards and a strong (slow) beat, this is my favorite track on the album. The Light Within closes with the gentle and uplifting “Shine,” a loving song that features Lyons on piano and DeSomer on guitar.

I don’t review a lot of vocal albums, but I really like this one! The warmth and soothing quality of the music is an excellent antidote to the stress and craziness of our lives, and I, for one, welcome that with open arms!

Phenomenal Album
“The Light Within: Songs for Yoga, Healing, & Inner Peace” by Juliet Lyons | Album Review by Dyan Garris for Zone Music Reporter and NewAgeCD

On the long-running TV series, “Touched by An Angel,” there was an episode in which the angel, Monica, centuries earlier in Heaven, had been kicked out of the angelic choir for her horrible voice. She just couldn’t sing. Well, I believe Juliet Lyons replaced not only Monica, but that entire choir of angels.

Juliet is a full-time singer, songwriter, and production music composer with the voice of an angel. She is well-known for her soaring, etheric vocals and musical works in film and television, movie trailers, as well as in the Trance and New Age genres.
Her original music has been heard in over 100 television shows on NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO, ABC Family, MTV, VH1, E!, Lifetime, Showtime, Bravo, Discovery, National Geographic, TLC, Cinemax, CMT, and more, as well as in the major motion picture, "Ghost in the Shell."

Juliet’s new solo album, “The Light Within,” is a collection of 10 tracks of mostly vocal songs created for yoga, healing, and inner peace. Juliet uses her astounding gift of voice as an instrument of compassion and love. And that love shines through in every single note. The production on the album is first-rate, the music is uplifting and healing; the entire album is a source of light to help us remember and feel our own light within. And we do.

The opening track, “Lokah Samastah,” is happy and joyful, but much more than that. “Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu” is an invocational Sanskrit mantra which essentially acts as a blessing for the world. And it is. If we all started our day with this jubilant song of peace, I suspect we could change the entire universe for the better. It’s certainly exhilarating and vibration-changing at a core level.

Joining Juliet on this track is a stellar line-up of musicians (on the whole album, in fact), including her husband, Rupesh Menon, who adds his wonderful, deep chants into this magnificent mix. Grammy® winner, Ricky Kej, an Indian composer and music producer, performs on keyboards. Additionally, Allen DeSomer adds guitars, with Vanil Vegas on santoor, and Karthik K on tabla.

Following is the very calming “Om Shanti.” Om Shanti is a mantra used in meditation, yoga practice, and Indian religions. Basically, the mantra, om shanti, calls forth cosmic peace. This song more than hits the mark.

The guitar, sitar, and bass of multi-instrumentalist and guitar virtuoso, David Vito Gregoli, provide the perfect complement to Juliet’s dreamy, ethereal vocals on “Flow.” This is like being softly swaddled in a flowing river of eternal peace and tranquility. Outstanding.

The trance inducing, “Calm,” is extremely soul-soothing. Juliet’s vocal performance is heavenly, wrapped beautifully around the ultra-smooth electric guitar of CK Barlow and a steady under-beat.

“Dawning Equilibrium” is very pretty and tranquilizing to mind, body, and spirit. We may be missing Juliet’s vocals here, but we are treated to her Native flute performance intertwined. Enchanting and relaxing.

The peace continues with “Stillness.” The vocal harmonies are exquisite here. Judy Kang’s cello performance and Allen DeSomer’s guitars add rich warmth and depth.

“Eternal Now” features the distinctive, masterful flute performance of Ron Korb and Allen DeSomer’s guitars accompanying Juliet’s breathtaking vocals. Rupesh Menon’s masculine chants interspersed give this song great “yin-yang” balance. This is all mixed perfectly by the award-winning Todd Boston. I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything quite so beautiful.

The heart chakra opening “Heal You,” is so stress relieving you can literally feel your stress melting away. The song feels alive and like it has its own heartbeat. Good for healing, grounding, and centering.

The title track, “The Light Within,” has a glorious, cinematic ambiance, even sans vocal. If our heart chakras weren’t open to the light within prior to this, they are now. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

The album closes out with the lullaby-like “Shine.” Featuring Juliet on vocal and piano along with Allen DeSomer’s guitar, the harmonies, again, are amazing. Close your eyes and peace-out.

“The Light Within: Songs for Yoga, Healing, & Inner Peace” is a very special album, unlike any other, that the whole world should hear and inhale deeply into their entire “beingness.” The harmoniously melodic light from this album gently pours out onto us, filling us to the brim with love. A phenomenal recording, this is manna from Heaven.
