"Across the Universe is about the yearning to be free that becomes so much a part of human condition as we travel the pathways of liberation. Relaxing new age, soundtrack-oriented instrumentals dominate the mix but lovely vocals contribute to the expressive texture of the album. Includes plenty of female vocals that should entice Máire Brennan, Enya, and Shanon enthusiasts, it should be explored further. Worth a journey--it is a nice and relaxing listen!" -- Musical Discoveries

Across the Universe blends uplifting flutes with ethereal vocals, creating a timeless musical soundscape that beckons its listener to melt away from day to day life. The lyrics are odes to the night sky, and the vastness of our earth and the universe beyond.

Track Name: Across the Universe
The moon is rising to fill the night
So pure bright
In starry skies I sail above the world

The dawn is breaking above the Earth
Bright star, new birth
In the morning light I shall sail above the world

So many times I've passed this way before
On eagle's wings and tiger's claw
Now I drift again down towards the shore

A ship came sailing from far across the sky
Far across the universe
Galaxies drift by
Wish upon a star
Floating up so high
Track Name: When
When will I be free like a wave out on the sea ?
Like a cloud above the ocean
Like a leaf in falling dances in the breeze

When will I be open as the darkest night is to the stars
Like the sky is to the ocean
Like lovers fall into each others arms

Dark glows the Western sky, geese are on the wing
Hark as the shadows fly the birds awake and sing
Light grow the Eastern skies moon is pale and blue
Look how the shadows rise sun comes shining through

When will I be joyful like a lark that sings his merry tune
Like a sunrise on a mountain
Like a wolf that sits there howling at the moon

When will I awaken like a seed that trembles in the light
Like a flower when dawn is breaking
Like a star appears to twinkle in the night
Track Name: Sun in my Eyes
Verse 1
In this moment the Earth is floating through the sky
On a sea of darkness filled with stars
In this moment I see all that happens to be
In this moment the sun is in my eyes

Verse 2
In this moment the moon is rising high
And a moonlit path is on the sea
In this moment I see all that happens to be
In this moment the sun is in my eyes

Bring me a boat to sail across the sea
And strong winds to carry me away
Across the shore for I can wait no more
In this moment the sun is in my eyes

Verse 3
In this moment a cloud goes drifting by and the rain is falling all around
In this moment the world is just the way I am
In the moment the sun is in my eyes
