ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kindled by an awareness of divine guidance and conscious connection with spirit, singer/songwriter Kimberly Haynes expresses her musical art in a synthesis of uplifting songs in the style of world, folk, pop and sacred chanting in the languages of English, Sanskrit, and Hebrew. Kimberly’s enrapturing sonic portals deliver the listener into the heart space.

The spectrum of her eclectic and enlightening vocal performances evokes both the tenderness of a mother’s touch and the ancient feminine power of a tribal priestess. Kimberly’s compositions are a musical journey of discovery, healing, personal growth and devotion.

“My songs are my prayers,” explains Haynes. “It is truly a privilege to carry those prayers into the world. It is my hope that they will be a blessing to all who hear them. I raise my voice in song to awaken a place deep within myself – and in others – where we can collectively begin to remember our own sacred hearts, our sacred connection to Creation, and the sacredness in each other.”

“EACH OF US HAS THE DAILY OPPORTUNITY TO AWAKEN TO OUR PERSONAL DESTINY — TO WHO WE TRULY ARE AND WHAT WE EACH HAVE TO GIVE, AND TO THE SACREDNESS OF BOTH OUR INDIVIDUAL AND OUR COLLECTIVE JOURNEY.”

Despite limited exposure to art and music in the inner city where she was raised, Kimberly Haynes bravely followed a divinely inspired call to song. Her passionate approach to life is reflected clearly through the music she creates. Having walked through extraordinary difficult personal challenges with her grace intact, she has allowed those experiences to deepen and enrich her song and channels her experiences into a tapestry of music for the heart.

"This album was born out of sacred ceremonies and these songs and prayers have moved me and my fellow travelers. I'm so delighted to bring these to a wider audience."

Kimberly’s debut album “Awaken Me,” won Album of the Year, One World Music Awards 2016.

“Haynes’ gentle, soothing, wistful, and haunting voice reaches resplendent passions…At every point, sincerity rings through, and the two constituents, the vocal and instrumental elements, serve as bolsters to each other in the subtlest but most suffused of ways…not only are her deliveries satiny and mellifluous but this woman boasts excellent compositional skills as well.”

From MainlyPiano
"In Dreams" is the second full-length recording from singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Kimberly Haynes. Her 2016 debut, "Awaken Me," received the Album of the Year award from One World Music, and this new release will not disappoint anyone with high expectations for her follow-up! Although Kimberly did not write the eight songs on "In Dreams," they are songs she has sung for beloved brothers and sisters in hundreds of prayer circles and medicine ceremonies. All of the songs are close to Haynes’ heart, and that connection to the music is very apparent in the heartfelt expression that comes through every word. Haynes has one of the most beautiful singing voices I have heard - very natural, sincere, and true. The songs are sung in English, Spanish, Hebrew, Sanskrit and Portuguese (lyrics are available on her website), and the instrumentation includes guitar, charango, didjeridu, and medicine drums. Douglas Hurt was executive producer for the project, which was recorded and mixed by David Vito Gregoli, who also plays guitars, charango, flutes, percussion, hand drums, synths and acoustic bass. It’s a beautiful and very soul-stirring album with a message for just about everyone.

"In Dreams" begins with “Kabir’s Song,” a beautifully haunting ballad written by Snatam Kaur Khalsa and Carste Thomas Barkawitz. I love the lines: “In useless play you’ll not find a way, so set your course and go.” “I Am Light” by India Arie begins with the sound of birds chirping before Hayne’s lovely voice begins, accompanied by little more than an acoustic guitar. The song feels very much like a folksong - simple and heartfelt. “Heal This Land” was written by Tina Malia and features Stephen Kent on didjeridu and Jeff Oster supplying horn effects. The steady rhythms of drums and hand percussion create a sense of urgency and keep the song driving forward. “Pinta” is a lively, upbeat song sung in Spanish with ethnic instrumentation that will have your toes tapping in no time. “B’yado,” sung in Hebrew, is almost a capella with sound healing bells and bowls as the only accompaniment. Haynes’ voice is layered so that it sounds like a duet in sections - simply gorgeous, emotional and very ethereal. “Flor Das Aguas” is a beautiful prayer sung in both Portuguese and English (English lyrics by Haynes). Instrumentation is again simple and ethnic. The traditional “Heart Sutra” was arranged by Haynes and sung in English with synth washes and a steady drum beat. Her voice is again layered in this very stirring and evocative song. The title track brings the album to a tender close with a song of love and encouragement sung to a child perhaps as a lullaby or perhaps as the child is leaving this earthly life. Light bells, synth washes and guitar enhance the deep emotion in Hayne’s voice and highlight the words of this amazing song.

So, if you are looking for a vocal album and a voice that can transport you, be sure to check out "In Dreams"! Very highly recommended!

An album that flows down the river of beauty
Kimberley Haynes is back with a breath taking new release on the back of her number one hit of 2016, Awaken Me. This collection of eight exciting new songs is broken up by seven small musical interludes performed on a Sansula by the artist herself, and is probably one of the most exhilarating vocal albums to have been released this year so far.
The journey starts with the flowing musical narrative of Kabir’s Song. Haynes voice is so imploring and moving at times, this song is a typical example of that statement, musically there is a real folk ethic about this one, and the added instrumentation just adds an extra layer of brilliance to this fantastic opener.
The natural sounds that start the piece I Am Light are truly scene setting and perfectly placed, this simply beautiful song is a wonderfully uplifting offering that is superbly performed by the artist. This is a song of freedom and release and the guitar that accompanies Haynes is played with such a loving respect and tenderness, it actually adds to the positivity of the composition threefold.
Every album has its own moment of magic, some have more, here is a song that must be nominated as a possible track of the year and called Heal This Land. If you wish to hear Haynes at her empowering best, then this is the track, here we have a wonderfully vibrant offering that reminds me of the work of Nigel Shaw and Carolyn Hillyer in the aspect of respect for our lands. The hand drum and Digeridoo only enhance the ethnicity of the piece and the wonderful repeating vocals from Haynes seal this as a true winner of a track for me.
As we reach the next place of musical rest we come across a sumptuous offering that has a real Latin feel to it and called Pinta, Vito Gregoli was his usual classy self on guitar and Haynes perfection on vocals only enhanced further by the wonderful percussion that highlighted the Latin motif of the offering.
Tibetan Bowls start our next song called B’Yado. There are times that perhaps you have heard all the beauty that the world has to offer up, but on this piece that beauty has extended its arms to caress me further. Haynes is pitch perfect and sings with such a level of sensitivity and respectfulness it is enough to move your very soul from its foundations, the over laid vocal segment drew me further into a dimension of utter tranquillity and a blissful six minutes were indeed spent.
We move back to the Latin feel now with the track Flor Das Aguas. This has a deeper resonance for me and perhaps even towards the deeper parts of South America, with the mood created by the flutes. Once more there is a distinctive folk essence here, and one can really see why Haynes employed the skills of linguistic coaches on the album.
We now move to the penultimate offering off the album called Heart Sutra, one of the best known and most popular in Buddhist scripture. For me as a follower of Buddhism, this is a song of the truth. Musically the hand drum adds a wonderful sense of power and intensity and together with Haynes vocals and truthful lyrics this is indeed one, if not the most powerful and direct pieces from the album.
The end has arrived, but what an end it is, as the title track is always the most beautiful blank canvas for the artist to illustrate the overall portrait of the entire concept with, beauty and peace are a concurrent theme within this album and so it should be, and on In Dreams, we have a sensitive and incredibly loving song that really captures the essences of how we should all lead our lives, with love and the strength of compassion.
Kimberley Haynes has done it again; she has created an album that flows down the river of beauty that floats on the clouds of peaceful harmony, and dances with the very beat of the Earth itself. In Dreams is an album that we should all embrace; it offers us moments of reflection and opportunities of truth, it is constructed with love, tenderness, and purpose, produced perfectly and performed with such style and grace, and is of course thoroughly recommended.
