ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The AwakeningSoul Ensemble gathers annually in early November to provide music for the AwakeningSoul Conference in Asheville, NC.
The 2018/2019 members of the ASE are;
Founder ~ Fran McKendree ~ vocals, acoustic guitar, Appalachian dulcimer
Lindsey Blount ~ vocals
Isabel Castellvi ~ cello, vocals, electric/acoustic guitar
River Guerguerian ~ percussion
Charles Milling ~ acoustic/electric guitar, bass, vocals
Chris Rosser ~ keyboards, electric/acoustic guitar, vocals

‘Songs from Justice is the Body of Love ~ Love is the Soul of Justice’ was recorded live at the 2018 event.

Music is an integral part of the AwakeningSoul experience, it is woven throughout the daily happenings - worship, talks by our presenters, time set aside for reflection and meditation, and gathering. Lindsey and Fran have been the main composers of the original music the ASE offers, and the arrangements evolve through an open door approach… all members are encouraged to contribute in the shaping of the songs or chants.

This process is a very organic and spiritual experience. Although it takes patience and commitment, it is truly amazing how the music becomes a reflection of the personality and inner nature of each of the members. Often wonderfully different from what the composers had envisioned, the arrangements and improvisational aspect of the performances are imbued with presence and a deep connectedness to the moment in which they are being offered, a rare and gracious gift.

This collection features, on many of the selections, the soulfully angelic voice of Lindsey Blount.
She can move you to tears (Grace Awaits), light up the room with a bit of scat improv (Omnia Vincet Amor), inspire and challenge you (Justice and Love), or bring new life and spark to an ancient melody (Come and Seek the Ways of Wisdom). Each of the other truly gifted members of the ASE bring their passion and vision to every song, chant or improvisation. Isabel’s cello can dance like sunlight on the water or drop you into the deep stillness of mystery. Charles’ guitar can drive a truck or waft gracefully in the clouds. River’s world of instruments and percussion skills are a marvel to behold - he is one of the greats of our time, capable of incredible drive and complexity one minute and graceful tenderness the next. Chris, the newest member of the ASE, brings a finely tuned ear for just the right chord change, lift or synth pad, a rich baritone voice and great song writing/arranging skills. Fran brings what someone described as a voice and spirit that connect the deep yearning of the soul with the playfulness of a kite, dancing in the wind. The combined vocal harmonies (Morning Comes and Evening Comes) are absolutely lovely. Together the ASE helps shape a container, a crucible, for the four days of each AwakeningSoul event and into the days that follow.

Our hope is that this recording will be an invitation to a threshold crossing… into the world of
what happens when six artists give themselves to the following of their call, listen to their hearts and bring the love!
