Voice of the Sea

Diane wrote her first song at the age of three, played piano at five and picked up her first guitar at the tender age of seven.

"There's music in my head when i wake up," she said. "It's everywhere. I sit down at a piano or with a guitar and suddenly there's a song or a really great chord or melody."

Her album, "Jewel in the Sun," debuted at No. 16 on Billboard's New Age charts when it was released in October 2002, peaking at number 11 in all, she's worked on more than forty albums, producing 17 under her own label, Neo Pacifica Recordings, and others under variuos pseudonyms, as well as composing music for the Olympics and television shows.

Arkenstone's music embraces many styles, combing Celtic-sounding melodies and Native American rhythms with a distincly techno beat and haunting vocals somewhat reminiscent of Enya.

"It's very fun stuff" she said of her work. "It's a little more pop than new age, with a little touch of world."

She's something of a musical jack-of-all-trades, playing not only the piano and guitar, but more unusual instruments such as the dulcimer, mandolin, wood flutes and various percussion instruments. Even her eight guitars are all tuned differently to bring added variety to her music.

Many Blessings

let me start out to say first that that was beautiful, the title i think fits the song perfectly "voice of the sea"i also think it would make a good background music to a movie.up till recently i was very limited to the music i would listen to.my son opened me up to different music ,now i can appreciate many new sounds of music. sometimes very enlightening with feelings that come alive.this song" voice of the sea" had some could dramatic sounds in it and then it had nice soothing sounds as if in or by the seas,listening to it you can put yourself in that scene.I personally liked it .thank you for posting it.
