Danielea Castell – Thank You Water
With a hushed reverence for the natural beauty of the world, Danielea Castell explores a mystical connection on the soothing “Thank You Water”. Arrangements are stripped down to the absolute essentials throughout the album. By far the heart and soul of the album rests with Danielea Castell’s strong assured vocals. Lyricism is highly intricate, detailed, and presents true love for the world. Much of the optimism rests within the idea of once more connecting with a world that at times feels so far removed from an average person’s day to day.
Setting the tone for the album is the calming spirit of “Thank You Waters – Athbasca River AB”. Within the glistening piano tones the song builds itself up into a meditative rhythm. A celebratory spirit enters the triumphant approach of “Great Fraser Rivers – Fraser River BC”. Far more subdued in sound is the symphonic “River Song – Fraser River BC”. Steady carefully crafted beats rest at the center of the jubilant “I Am Here With You – Quesnel Lake BC” where the hard-hitting beat adds to the visceral feel of the track. Neat and tidy is the longing that defines the beautiful “Water Calling Me Home – Diablo Creek, CA”. Stripped away of nearly everything is the ambient bliss of “Gaia Speaks – Quesnel Lake BC”. Bringing the album to a grand close is the colorful multi-faceted “We Are The Ones”.
True awe of the world dominates the lush and lovely sound of Danielea Castell’s “Thank You Water”.
