John Adorney employs guitar and unique instrumentation over smoothly sculpted beats to create deeply resonant songs that bespeak triumph and positivity. Daya, a vocalist Adorney has known since she was nine years old, figures prominently on the album. “Always,” “Waiting for the Moon,” and album closer “Mavoh Mavoh” (which means I love you from eternity to eternity) feature Daya’s emotive vocals, helping to place the music in a different realm. The other standout is “The River’s Secret,” in which tamboura and English horn wind around each other in a mysterious marriage of sound…

In the stunning follow-up to his debut release, Beckoning, multi-instrumentalist Adorney has created a delightful collage of songs lightly infused with Asian, Eastern and Celtic. Daya Rawat’s multi-dubbed vocals on the infectious title track and “When The Flower Meets The Rain” are reminiscent of Enya’s breakthrough “Orinoco Flow” from Watermark. Also, on the spirited chant of “Kulan Tai Ulam” her layered vocals rise with the world beat crescendo Adorney’s pleasing and melodic songs are gently fashioned on keyboards, with support from guitar, flutes, cello, oboe, horn, light percussion and bass. His guitar shines on the romantic “Thinking Of you” while Rawat’s refrain echoes the title. Chris Bleth’s oboe soars in the darkness of the “Moonbird”. Acoustic guitars and cellos blend together on the contemporary “All In A Moment” instrumental, prior to the ambient space “Entrance.”

On his debut solo CD, “Beckoning”, John Adorney showcases his unique talents as both a performer and composer on 11 sparkling new tracks. Playing cello, guitar, keyboard and percussion, and joined by guest artists on pennywhistle, bamboo flute and vocals, he combines striking melodies with elegant chord changes and intrinsically pulsating rhythms to create a sound that is inspiring, haunting, evocative and beautiful. The music conveys a richness of feeling, and awakens in the listener a sense of longing as well as the sense of a longing fulfilled.
