    Default New age music fans, share your favourite artists/albums

    My current favourite is Tim Wheater's "Incantation". This is not a new album but I only discovered it recently. Really loved the haunting flute and vocals.

    Recent favourites also include Adiemus's albums, especialy volume 3, "Dances of Time".

    What are your favourites?

    Nicholas Gunn, S.E.N.S, Kevin Kern, Chris Spheeris, Suzanne Cianni are my favourites as of now

    Each has got their own flavour if you ask me. Hard to say which is the best!

    It's more of a celtic-influenced album, but I like Ronan Hardiman's Solas.

    Oh...I have that also. I like "Love Song" and "Heaven". I kind of prefer his music for "Lord of the Dance" and "Feet of Flame".

    Have you heard of Haley Westenra? Her version of "Heaven" in her debut album "Pure" is quite good also.

    Hi guys, another new-age listener here. But nowadays dun really listen to it often unless I'm in the mood to do so.

    Some of my favourite new-age artists:

    - Kitaro
    - Enya
    - Yanni
    - Chris Spheeris/Paul Voudouris (Enchantment)
    - Suzanne Ciani
    - Hilary Stagg

    Some other artists I listen to include stuff from Higher Octave compilations, Kevin Kern, Ronan Hardiman, Secret Garden, 2002 etc.

    Started out listening to Kitaro in the early 90s, then went on to Enya, Yanni and Suzanne Ciani. My passion for New Age took a peak during my NS days, where I listen to it as a form of relaxation and to de-stress. Now still listening to it once in a while.

    Guys, recommend you to check out this guy: Hilary Stagg. Discovered his music recently when I walked past the CD shop at 2nd level of Bugis, heard this beautiful music coming from the speakers and asked the owner about it. He plays beautiful, soothing melodies from his modified harp. Great and relaxing stuff, I always imagine myself floating in the sea when listening to his tunes. Unfortunately Hilary passed away in 1999 after an illness. His musical legacy can be heard in the seven albums that he produced. I would recommend "Hilary Stagg - A Tribute" as a good start point to his music. More info on his Bio & music can be found on the website above.

    Check out local New Age Piano composer Chester Tan's debut album, Timeless. He's received good reviews on his guestbook, publications, as well as music shops.

    Healing collection II is not bad though.... Now em listening to Frank Steiner, his impressive works is what we called "when east meet west"

    AMETHYSTIUM is also very deep, you can feel the deepest and darkest place in the world through your hi-fi hehehehe

    Wow.. most of you all already listed some of the people I listen to. I attended the Secret Garden concert last year..... really great music.

    Also got my ticket to hear David Lanz in concert in Feb here.

    The music samplers are always good to get before buying the albums of a specific artist.

    Used to visit the CDs store and buy at least 2 CDs a month or so esp during exam periods haha..
