ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” attributed to C.S. Lewis

It seems my entire life has been a series of lifetimes tied together. I have been privileged to be called daughter, sister, wife, mother and now grandmother. Through triumph & failure, joy & sorrow.......Each stage of my life has taught me and changed me. This album is a collection of songs that tell the story of my journey as I dream “A New Dream”.

I am very grateful to my loyal friends & fans that continue listening to my music. Your support is appreciated beyond measure. A special thank you to the amazing musicians that have given me words of encouragement and advice. All your feedback and support mean the world to me. Finally, I must thank my wonderful family and especially my husband Al. You have walked every step with me and held me up when I thought I might fall.

Just like most musicians, I compose from my heart and soul. Every song tells a story. I have spent a lifetime playing and loving other peoples stories. Now it is time for me to share my life through my music.
The music of this Idaho based composer and piano artist has been described as "beautiful and relaxing". Kathy Parsons of Mainly Piano wrote, “Her music is gentle, melodic and very accessible. Many of her pieces have a quiet hymn-like quality.” Steve Sheppard from One World Music Radio recently said,”She has a style that is, both gentle, but artistically clever and at times reminds me of Robin Spielberg” Lynn Tredeau was recently featured as a Debut Artist on One World Music Radio in the UK.

I have been very blessed to be Nominated for 2015 Best New Artist on Enlightened Piano Radio!!

Her first album Echoes of Life climbed to #1 on Spa Channel & #2 on One World Music Radio top 100 and has been in the top 20 of radio stations around the globe. This Debut album reached the rank of #23 on Zone Music Reporter. Echoes of Life has been nominated for Best Solo Piano Album on One World Music Radio and is 2015 Qualifier for Best Piano Album-Solo on Zone Reporter. SnowLight (A Christmas Memory) quickly went to #1 on OWMR, has been nominated for Album of the Year on SoloPiano.com and One World Music. SnowLight is now available on Pandora.

Both of this New Artists first two albums have been featured on many radio stations and there are great hopes for album #3, due out sometime in the spring of 2016!!

Christmas is very special to my husband and myself, so releasing a Christmas Album was a joyful project. Music is an important part of my life on every day, but during the Christmas season, it becomes as essential as breathing. Many of the standard carols have evolved from arrangements I created for students, but there are also several original compositions that I hope become new Christmas favorites.
SnowLight is Lynn Tredeau's second album. RJ Lannan says, "Snowlight has 14 tracks of Christmas and winter bliss.""Darla Bower of Enlightened Piano Radio writes that, “This album boasts of melodic rearrangements of favorite Christmas carols but yet invokes a joyful reflection of Christmas season’s past and present with delicate enticement. Each piece has a surprising and different interpretation of classic Christmas carols while showcasing gentle artistry.” Steve Sheppard comments this is a “Christmas based album of utter perfection. I really love it when an artist sets the scene with the album title piece and SnowLight the track is not only beautiful, but it sets the scene so classically and may I also say with great originality. ”

My debut album Echoes of Life tells stories that reflect my life experiences. Hiking in the mountains, playing with my grandchildren, the adventure of travel and comforting loved ones during times of loss. My deepest hope is that my music allows you to reflect on your life and revisit those memories that mean the most to you. Steve Sheppard of One World Music Radio wrote that Echoes of Life is a “total must for all lovers of the solo piano genre, but the care, calmness of pace and professionalism in this release, is rare in a debut album.”

Music has always been my joy in good times and my solace in bad times, but raising a family became my passion and the kids activities filled my days. I stole those occasional afternoons to play, but for the most part, music waited patiently for me to return.

When my children grew into adults, my dream of owning a grand piano became a reality. Music once again became an all consuming passion. I spent many years teaching and I was privileged to share my love of music with countless others. Up to this point in my life, the music part of my brain was a one way valve. I took in music that had been lovingly created by others, but I hadn't yet discovered that those little melodies that I hummed to myself could blossom into something larger. But the day came when I decided it was time to share the music within.

Review from Journeyscapes Radio
“A New Dream” is the third album from Idaho-based pianist and composer Lynn Tredeau. Having received her first piano at the age of six and subsequently mastering classical music, Lynn eventually found her calling in the realm of new age piano music when she later discovered the music of fellow pianist-composer Michele McLaughlin. Following in the musical footsteps of her two previously award-nominated albums, “A New Dream” is comprised of thirteen solo piano compositions that are largely inspired by dreams, musings and memories.

“Awaken” opens the album in an uplifting yet gentle mode with a moderately-paced melody. Similarly brighter pieces subtly contrast more contemplative moments, oftentimes within the same composition. The lovely piece “Courageous” is one example, in which a lower-register melody opens with a solemn tone that is later joined by a more radiant melody. Another highlight is “Winter Thaw”, an elegantly flowing composition that moves at a traveling pace, as if traversing a snowy landscape. A more buoyant mood is conveyed on “Land of Enchantas”, an enjoyably faster-paced tune in a higher-register that twirls about like a graceful ballerina. Closing out the album is “Shadow of Your Absence”, another memorable piece with a somber touch that appropriately seems to leave the most lasting impression of all.

One thing that especially stood out to me on “A New Dream” is the down-to-earth storytelling that is conveyed throughout the album, as noted by other song titles such as “Deepest Part of the Lake”, a piece about quietly reflecting on a boat in the middle of a lake – or “Lunch with Vincent”, which ponders what it might be like to sit in a Parisian Café with the legendary painter Vincent Van Gogh. I was often reminded throughout of visiting a Victorian-era cottage in the countryside, sunlit strolls by a lake, and pastel meadow flowers. With a piano-playing style that is both delicately poised and melodically dynamic, Lynn has crafted a beautifully wholesome album that’s wrapped in an overall semblance of peaceful optimism.

Lynn has raised the bar with this release
It’s been my pleasure to have been on this journey with Lynn Tredeau, a former debut artists of OWMR, a former number one with her second album and her first release also held number 2 with an impressive tenure in the world 100 chart, there can be no doubt that this fine pianist has indeed got something very special in her musical armoury and were about to find out more right now, as we go on another musical sojourn through her latest release, A New Dream.
The opening composition is called Awaken and it slowly opens our eyes to a new day with its mellow construction. The performance on this was so delightful, one could really visualise the rays of a new sun streaming in through the bedroom window.
On Deepest Part of the Lake we have a different arrangement entirely, the gentle and almost careful approach was perfect to depict the subject matter; there is a slight hesitancy within the performance here, one that pays respect to this part of the lake. In an impressive style in her first two tracks, Tredeau has been able to literally paint a picture for us with her piano and do it with a certain class.
We move to Living in a Dream, I have felt like that at times, but this could be a positive or negative song title, however Tredeau’s performance seems to be one of happiness and gratitude, and while she plays, one can almost hear a slight energy of remembrance of a journey to get here.
From time to time we all have to be Courageous; here Lynn Tredeau shows that by playing one of the darker tracks on the album. One can feel a narrative forming within her presentation; the minor chords are blissful and create a real sense of mood. The song has hope and the constant motif within the composition keeps driving onward, this was one of my favourite songs off the release.
Lunch with Vincent is our next piece, while we ponder who Vincent is, we can of course enjoy this almost European styled performance, a sense of a waltz can be found here. This is almost like a song to wander through an art gallery too. Perhaps back to the Baroque era? There is a distinct sense of the romantic in this one, a track bursting with sunlight and joy.
Something very sweet has now knocked on your musical door, it’s called Pixie Dance. The very delicate tinkling of the keys illustrates this with ease; once more Tredeau treats us to a track that has a real element of movement and dance within it and, as the piece progresses one can also feel a real flow forming in the song too.
Moving over the half way point of the album we come to a mood filled track called Winter Thaw. Spring is my favourite time of year; I remember being in the old country and watching the first flowers bloom as winter’s dark and dismal clock begins to wind down, this would pretty much be my sound track to the end of that season. The artist’s skill in offering hope of a new period of growth, whist reminding one of those cold dark nights is sublime in her performance.
Quite appropriately the next piece is called Seasons Change, the energy shift is quite clear and concise, the style is lighter, but respectful. This is a charming arrangement, that one could easily see radiant blooms of flowers blowing in a mild April breeze; this one has such a superb sense of flow and movement, that it’s utterly enchanting.
Interesting enough I remember a book called The Land of Enchantas, this piece of music would make a superb film soundtrack to a story about talking animals, screaming vegetables and sorcerers. The depth of fantasy here is brilliant, perfectly composed and played by Tredeau in a really epic composition that has so much contained within, this deserves multiple listens.
A Quiet Memory, what a beautiful title for a composition and when you listen dear reader, you will find this both appealing and attractive, this one piece really highlights just how far Tredeau has come in her career so far, this has a slight element of drama, a sensible use of power and such a delicate posture of reflection, apart from that, its cleverly played and one that I recommend to anyone to listen to again, a stunning track indeed.
The artist’s reflective genius can be felt again in this next arrangement called Ocean of Tears. The melody and performance live up totally to the title, the performance is passionate and melancholy, but also very clever, just listen to the little spirit of hope, just hidden deep within the weave.
The penultimate piece is now with us dear listener and called Innocence, again the motif is spot on, however the narrative is not one of a wide eyed innocence, but more of an energy of sensitivity, kindness and tenderness found from within a life experience, the extremely superb and delicate tempo changes are really something to behold.
As we move into the last room of the realm of Lynn Tredeau, we can see the artist sitting at her instrument and she will perform for us one final time, this composition will be called Shadow of Your Absence, a dark tale perhaps of loss, but once more there is a sense of personal power waiting to be ignited from that forfeiture, dark and light, night and day, sadness and joy, all of this can be found on this track alone, a wonderful way to end what has been a deeply moving new release from the artist.
A New Dream by Lynn Tredeau is the artists third album, is this so far her best? That is without doubt the truth, she has added a real layer of depth, sensitivity and emotion into her work and it’s paid off big time, Tredeau is now well on the way to becoming one of the finest pianist of her era, she has all the qualities required to do so, in a moment of reflection Lynn Tredeau may look back upon this release and think of it as real bar raiser.

From MainlyPiano
"A New Dream" is the third solo piano release from Lynn Tredeau. Tredeau’s 2015 debut, "Echoes of Life," received world-wide attention and reached #1 on Spa Channel, #2 on One World Music Radio and was nominated for Best Piano Album - Solo by OWM. Her second album, "Snowlight (A Christmas Memory)" was nominated for Album of the Year by SoloPiano.com and OWM. Tredeau was also nominated as Best New Artist on EnlightenedPianoRadio.com. That’s a hard act to follow, but Tredeau’s gentle touch on the piano keys and her musical messages of love and hope should send this album shooting up the charts as well. A very active musician in her youth, Tredeau set those aspirations aside to raise her family. Later on, she was inspired by the music of Michele McLaughlin and re-immersed herself in music - and began creating her own music. She has obviously chosen the right path for this segment of her life!

"A New Dream" begins with “Awaken,” a warm and soothing piece that is as delicate as the morning sky. Relaxed and optimistic, it’s a lovely opening! “Deepest Part of the Lake” is about peaceful moments spent in a boat in the middle of a lake, reflecting on life’s important questions. The gentle rhythms of this piece bring images of light dancing on water and the soft movement of the lake itself. “Courageous” is one of my favorites. A bit darker than most of the thirteen pieces, it seems to be reflecting on the loss of a fallen hero. “Lunch With Vincent” imagines what it would be like to have lunch with VanGogh in a Paris cafe. A light and playful waltz with a slightly French flavor, this is a very pleasant lunch, indeed! “Pixie Dance” is played mostly in the higher registers of the piano, giving this sweet bit of musical sunshine a hint of magic. “Winter Thaw” sparkles like light reflecting off the snow, yet expresses a chill in the air and the promise of a coming spring. “The Land of Enchantas” is my favorite piece on the album and was composed as a theme song for a trilogy of fantasy novels by the same name. Sometimes mysterious and sometimes lighter and fanciful, this piece has a bit more drama as well as a sense of adventure. The almost fragile “A Quiet Memory” is a whisper of a piece - reflective and nostalgic. “Innocence” is very simple and honest, much like its inspiration. “Shadow of Your Absence” brings the album to a close with poignance and deep emotion.

"A New Dream" is an excellent follow-up to Lynn Tredeau’s first two albums! Recommended!

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
Some of our dreams occur when we are asleep, and then there are those we dream when we are awake… our goals, desires, and visions for what we want in life. For pianist composer Lynn Tredeau, one of her dreams has been to create beautiful emotionally expressive music to share with the world. And with her third album, “A New Dream,” she continues making that dream a reality.

The first track on “A New Dream” is appropriately titled “Awaken.” I was immediately captured by the song’s gentle flow and also intrigued by the shifting currents of Lynn’s pleasantly surprising chord changes. The inspiration for track 3, ’Living in a Dream’ touches on a universal theme of gratitude and is a reminder not to take the gifts we have and the people we love for granted. I found this song’s tender heartfelt melody quite emotionally evocative. Inspired by a Van Gogh painting, “Lunch With Vincent” is written as a waltz in 3/4 time and sparkles with an uplifting ambiance, as does the next track entitled “Pixie Dance,” with its enchanting music box-like melody. Providing a bit of a yin yang contrast to these last few songs is another waltz called “Winter Thaw,” that has a more somber, yet hopeful feel.

On “Land of Enchantas,”I particularly enjoyed the various movements it evolved through, varying from a darker feel, as played on the lower registers of the piano, to light dancing melodies on the higher registers, creating a lovely balance that worked well with the song’s fantasy theme. And speaking of balance, on the last three songs, the poignant ambiance of “Ocean of Tears” and “Shadow of Your Absence,” contrast with the tender sweetness of “Innocence,” which evoked the feeling of looking into the eyes of a new born baby.

“A New Dream” by Lynn Tredeau provides a journey through a diversity of emotional landscapes, shaped by deeply personal experiences and universal themes. Throughout the album, Lynn allows herself to be vulnerable in expressing her joys and sorrows, and in doing so, creates an empathetic response in the listener that mirrors many of our own feelings and life experiences. Lynn’s melodies and motifs range from simple and stark like bare trees in winter, to effulgent as in the blossoming of spring. I’m sure that this new release, like her previous ones, will find wide acceptance and will be the next step in furthering Lynn’s dream of sharing her expressive music with the world.
