Album Notes
The eagerly awaited new record from LaDéroute is here! These seasoned artists, at the peak of their poetic inspiration and understanding, have created a new genre of music called Affirmation Music. Soul Affirmation is Ken's vision of crafting a record as a tool for better outcomes, and as an aid in reprogramming the mind with powerful musical positive affirmations.

Singing to our hearts and minds, Ken's songs are enlivening, inspirational, and designed to help empower our lives for the better Enhanced by Amy's divine vocals, and brought to life with a gorgeous blend eclectic percussion, guitars, dotars, violins, pianos and cellos.

Dance, relax and simply allow positive Affirmation Music to enter and affect your subconscious mind.

Produced by Ken LaDéroute and Grammy nominated artist Kit Walker (Deva Primal), and mixed by Ben Leinbach (Jai Utal), these sacred and expansive, intentional affirmations bring us all to a higher level of awareness and Self-realization.

Thanks for the beautiful way I start my day now! Your music is wonderful--beautiful arrangements, gorgeous voice, and most of all it's soothing and uplifting and healing and very deep knowledge. --Jane Pitt, Boone, NC

Use the Power of Mantra to Reconnect With Your True Self

Soul Affirmation not only uses positive affirmations but also includes the power of mantra. A mantra is a mystical syllable or poem, typically from the Sanskrit language. They are primarily used as spiritual conduits, words or vibrations that instill one-pointed concentration.

Mantras are interpreted to be effective as vibration, or more simply as sound, which may include verbal repetition, in the form of chanting, or internal mental incantation.

Throughout the day, various songs from the CD loop though my head and heart, and uplift me. Today it's the song "It Comes from Me". It touches me so deeply tears some to my eyes. Ken and Amy, your music is a gift to us all and helps us to awaken to our True Selves. --Blessings, Lori Miller Whole Health News publisher & editor

Over the years I have searched for and listened to music that can DO something. Music has always been a way for me to enjoy and appreciate the talent of gifted musicians, but oftentimes I have played a certain song or album to provoke specific emotions and actions. My desire to use sound as a tool to live more intentionally motivates me to explore all genres and styles of music. In my exploration I recently discovered the album Soul Affirmation: Music For Better Outcomes, the newest gem from LaDeroute, a band based in Asheville, North Carolina.

Ken and Amy LaDeroute, a husband and wife duo, are pioneering a musical genre all their own called Affirmation Music. Soul Affirmation, the first in a series of CD’s, blends the ancient tradition of chanting with modern English lyricism, soothing melodies with stimulating drum beats and clear, precise vocals with authentic emotion. Soul Affirmation becomes a powerful mixture of relaxation, dance, healing and meditation music. Eloquent, positive motivational affirmations are woven into masterful compositions while Amy LaDeroute’s gorgeous voice and the words she sings make a dramatic and profound impact.

Individual songs vary in theme and instrumentation, but they all share a common focus. Each song on Soul Affirmation facilitates deep centeredness, inner peace, stimulation of the heart chakra, true confidence and Self trust. Songs like Om Namah Shivaya, It Comes From Me and Simply Be feel like old friends. The affirmations are unstoppable reminders of the endless love, acceptance, blessing, empowerment and wholeness the Universe abundantly provides each day. One of my personal favorites, I Come From A Place Of Love, inspires listeners to create their own reality and access their full potential.

Ken and Amy, the heart of LaDeroute, have both been performing music for over 20 years. They met in the early 1980’s when Amy auditioned for one of Ken’s bands. They have traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada playing a wide variety of musical styles including rock, jazz, soul, funk, pop and more. Soul Affirmation features a number of accomplished world music artists like Kit Walker (Jai Uttal and Deva Premal) and Ben Leinbach (Jai Uttal). Ken has studied and taught meditation for more than 20 years as well.

Ken recently wrote about the making of Soul Affirmation on his web site and he discusses the five positive daily affirmations he used himself during the writing, recording and editing of the album. “My Affirmations for the Soul Affirmation Music Project,” he writes, “I choose to help people see themselves for whom they truly are; I seek to help people tap into their eternal nature and become anchored and secure within their Higher Selves; I will help people remove negative mental memories and conditioning, so they may adopt a life of pure intention; I seek to help people lighten their load, simplify their lives, and find true meaning by tapping into their inherent potential; and I teach others to meditate.”

Soul Affirmation is not only a musical expression, but also a tool for personal growth and a daily practice you can use to improve your life. In the article Love Is All There Is Ken LaDeroute writes, “The universe is made up of energy. I believe this energy is love. This outpouring of love awaits us each day when we wake up, and it is there when we go to sleep. If we can muster the courage to relinquish the ego’s control over the mind, overcome our conditioned responses, loosen compulsive thinking, burnout past karmas and impressions, we finally learn to be intensely present, and clearly see truth in our lives.” Affirmation Music can truly help you tap into your courage and transform your Self in ways you never dreamed possible.

I have been on a spiritual quest for as long as I can remember. Along the way, I have read widely among all of the great spiritual traditions. In the most important sense, these traditions have one central theme. It’s all about love, that’s the central energy that governs the universe. It makes the world go around!

There’s a problem with this central theme. It’s almost trite. What does love mean? How can it be found and used to transform one’s life? I have struggled with these issues for more than fifty years.

“Soul Affirmation,” a newly released CD of ten songs, all composed with lyrics by Ken LaDeroute and sung by his enchanting wife Amy, provides helpful answers. With lyrics that read like fine poetry, love is defined. Love teaches that life is sacred. It releases fear, and pushes one toward peace. It flows through a person as a beautiful energy. It gives life purpose, and points to a higher way. It is abundant. In addition, there are songs about inner peace (“Simply Be”), the power of forgiveness (“I Choose Forgiveness”), and Hindu spirituality (“Om Namah Shivaya”).

For a CD to have staying power, it needs a great voice. Great singers have more than a good voice. We resonate with them because their sound comes from a place deep within. Amy LaDeroute has internalized the values expressed in these songs, which allows her to deliver the music in a voice of purity, beauty, and clarity. You don’t miss a word. You will never forget her. Produced by Ken LaDeroute and Grammy-nominated artist Kit Walker, the songs have a full sound. Ken and Kit skillfully blend a wide array of instruments to create music that reinforces the message behind the lyrics.

As the title of the CD suggests, the lyrics are written to affirm positive values. Listen to the words and allow them to wash over you, to penetrate through you. If you do, the music will re-create your thoughts, reprogram negative beliefs, and help to end compulsive mind chatter.

I walk with the CD two or three mornings a week. The songs provide a beacon of light. They inspire and challenge me. They clarify my thinking. They push me to love my neighbor, and help me to see all life as sacred. Thank you Ken LaDeroute for providing us with this wonderful gift!
