Product Notes

Andrew Corbett's Moments of Grace is a journey both musically graceful and spiritually satisfying. Andrew's lyrics explore life's mysteries in a way that is evocative, yet subtle and imaginative. His compelling melodies are supported by arrangements that are tastefully spare and elegant. All the offerings are built on the solid foundation of Andrew's guitar work and warm vocals. The songs on Moments of Grace are, with one exception, original works encompassing 30 years of observation and songwriting. The album opens with the uplifting Bright Blue Ball which reminds us to cherish our only home, Earth. It then takes us on a journey from the sublime (Moments of Grace, New Moon), through penetrating reflections on life and love (Lincoln Park, Turning, Mystery), culminating in personal discovery and triumph (Highway One, Heartland, Long Road). Along the way we are treated to two beautiful instrumental works (Teewinot Sunrise, Dance of the Twilight Forest) as well as to Andrew's unique rendition of Gordon Lightfoot's Rainy Day People. Rita Hosking graces many songs with lovely vocal harmony. Joe Craven lends his musicality and fiddle virtuosity to much of the album. Other artists include Jan Thomas Peters on mandolin, bouzouki, and acoustic guitar; Laura Sandage on vocals; and Bill Edwards on mandolin. In addition to new material, Moments of Grace also includes Andrew's best work from an earlier release - re-recorded with new instrumentation and vocals - so that it can be shared with a wider audience. Moments of Grace is co-produced by Corbett, Doug Chancellor, and Kari Estrin. Tracks were recorded primarily at SoundFarm in Vacaville, CA, with final mixing and mastering by Gary Gordon of Inside Out Studio in Sparta, IL. In addition to being a talented guitarist and songwriter, Andrew Corbett is also a published biological scientist and a successful online education entrepreneur. His musical foundations were laid in the 70's and 80's as he internalized the music of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, and Kate Wolf - but he has merged these and later influences into his own expressive voice. For Andrew, songwriting is about communicating life's elusive mysteries that can't be expressed in any other way, and with Moments of Grace he has embarked on a journey of sharing his songs with the world.
