Album Notes
Born in the UK, Shivantha has lived in Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Italy, Australia and the USA, has traveled to over 30 and has had 15 places he as called home. The Piano became his friend at age 8, until he picked up the guitar at 15. 'My baptism in music came when I was 16. I was invited to play percussion with the Colombo Philharmonic Orchestra' he states, citing the catalyst that forged him into the musician he is today. 'Watching the violins start here and the violas join there and the horn section jump in from over there...It just made sense to me'.

'Words From Not Long Ago started in my bedroom in Melbourne Australia and was crafted over time in many corners of the world and took many years from its inception to its completion', says Shivantha, (who not only wrote and arranged all the songs on the album, but also handled all the vocals, backing vocals, acoustic, electric, rhythm and lead guitars as well as the string sections and some of the bass).

'I was lucky I was able to surround myself with great musicians who were not only older than me, but better than me, and had more experience in life'. When most kids were out going to 18th birthday parties, he was at his friend Mark's place understanding the power of jamming, song writing and its place in his life.

This is not the beginning, but somewhere in the middle and there are many more chapters to write in this musical journey of his.

Only the best with Shivantha
Such a pleasure to listen to Shivantha. I love his style of singing, and the songs he has chosen are my type of music . Keep up the great work and look forward to listening to more in the future.

Songs straight from the heart for easy listening
Shivantha's debut album contains some beautiful and poignant numbers. I was particularly impressed by the first track on this album entiled Fallen into You. A highly talented musician - I can't wait for more! music from this young man.
