ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Whether you are a newcomer on the Shimshai scene or a devout fan, the recent re-release of his signature album, “Toward the One,” is sure to offer a divine musical experience for every level of devotee. Originally recorded on the Big Island of Hawaii in 2003, and now, a decade later it has been completely revisited and remixed, bringing a whole new dimension and presence throughout the record; a refreshing clarity combined with an ever-mystical element that, at once, transposes the listener back to, what he refers as, “the heartbeat of creation.”

While the up-lifting lyrics on “Move Mountains,” provide remedy for the mind, those seeking internal refuge will surely find sanctuary in “Angel of the Dawn,” featuring the crystal vocal accompaniment of Ms. Tina Malia, along with other such heart-
opening gems as, “Deliverance,” and “Home is Where.” Not to mention 'Be Here Now,' a song now sung far and wide in many circles around the world. A special treat on this version is the bonus track, one of Shimshai's most popular hymns, 'I Sense Your Presence,' remixed by the incredibly gifted and creative electronic artist Kaminanda.

Originally recorded during his formative years with the Natural Mystic Ensemble, “Toward the One,” is a perfect showcase of Shimshai’s multiple array of musical talent. He can be found throughout the album performing effortlessly on Rhodes piano, ukulele, flute, melodica, classical and electric guitars, all the while blessing up Creation with his sweet angelic voice. Still, it is the honesty that shines through the music that makes his message more of a universal prayer than a simple song, thus exposing his purest gift.

“Toward the One” is a soundtrack for a new generation of seekers and searchers as well as a modern classic for those who have witnessed, ‘over and over’, the truth being conveyed by this old prophetic soul disguised as a brilliant young musician.
