Announcing: The Little Temple

Red Heaven is delighted to announce our second EP, The Little Temple: A collection of three original songs written for the occasion of the Baha’i Holy Festival of Riḍván, 2017. Incorporating excerpts from sacred Baha’i text, The Little Temple features meditative, ambient music with a worldly flavor that will lull listeners both to reflect and maybe even inspire them to dance.

Malagasy singer Bruno Randimbiarinson joins Red Heaven on The Little Temple, as does violinist Marie-Claire Saindon, bassist Tom McMahon, and percussionist Aaron Ferrera. These songs will be available for free or “pay what you want” download, and we are opening the license to encourage those who enjoy it to copy and share it with their friends and/or incorporate it into their media presentations, group meetings, or private reflection.

Our other in-progress album, Echolocation, is still pressing forward in production without delay or interruption. The Little Temple is simply a little something extra as a gift from Red Heaven to you.

Keep an eye on Redheaven.ca for news on The Little Temple, Echolocation, and a bunch of other stuff, too.

Happy Riḍván!

More on The Undivided Heart

The next album is actually going to be an EP; just five songs. They will be a different vibe than what you’re used to from Red Heaven. Not rock, but more ambient/lyrical. I’ll be using writings from the Baha’i Faith for lyrics and am currently finishing off the musical compositions. There will be no buildup, no marketing, no hype machine, no crowdfunding campaign. Like the two Red Heaven albums before it, The Undivided Heart will be released digital-only. Unlike the previous two releases, it will be offered free of charge with a broad license for public broadcasting. I will encourage people to share the downloads with others.

The next album after The Undivided Heart will be more like the Red Heaven you already know. This is a personal project that I want to explore, and now that the Red Heaven lineup is so great, I thought now would be a good time… in between “major” releases.

Coming soon…

Just before we get into the fun of the upcoming Tyendinaga video and the live shows online and the live house concerts, etc. etc… let me give you a sneak peek at what Red Heaven is up to creating, starting this week.
