New CD Collaboration for “A Hushed Thrill”

“A Hushed Thrill” is an exciting, newly released CD project of eight songs that I wrote about Brookgreen Gardens, my place of employ and one of this country’s treasures.  It was completed through collaboration with a team of dedicated music students and staff of The Athenaeum Press at Coastal Carolina University.  About 40 students of this student-driven publishing lab arranged, performed, recorded, designed, edited, and mastered the entire project from tracks to packaging.  Their talent is amazing!

The project is the first collection of songs about Brookgreen Gardens, our country’s premier sculpture gardens located in Murrells Inlet, SC, and perhaps the first collection of songs about a specific site.  It provides listeners a unique, aural, foot-tapping, and joy-abounding way of experiencing a one-of-a-kind place of art, nature, and beauty.

A CD to enjoy —
