Music for Mermaids

Welcome to my first blog post!  I plan to touch on topics of all kinds.  Some will be related to mermaids, and others will not.  Please submit feedback, and tell others about this blog!

I would like to dedicate this first post to music.  In many mermaid legends, mermaids can be found sitting on nice comfortable rocks, singing a sweet song, and being very distracting to passing sailors.  Let it be known, however, that mermaids also like listening to music.  Let me share with you the music that I believe is perfect for the mermaid or merman that needs to relax after a long day...

Louis Landon has produced a number of solo-piano CD's over the years.  Of particular interest is Solo Piano for Love, Peace, and Mermaids.  The 12-track CD contains the mermaid inspired tracks 'Siren' and 'Light Sea' as well as romantic titles such as 'A Lover's Kiss' and 'I Found You.'

The liner notes for the CD include, "...Landon has expanded on his mission to create a peaceful and loving world for all life forms, including mermaids, who are now classified as an endangered species."

All of Louis' music can be found on his website, and you can find a music video of 'Siren' on YouTube, complete with a mermaid!

You may also be interested in Louis' recently released Christmas CD, Peaceful Christmas.

Heath Vercher's music features solo-piano and orchestrated piano in a wide variety of styles.  Whimsy was released in 2010, and was created to embrace the lighter side of life. Track three, 'Out to Sea' is very special to me, as Heath dedicated it to me on his music website, "A song for my good friend, Cynthia Rivers, mermaid extraordinaire and lover of the ocean. Thanks for everything, Cynthia."

Other tracks on Whimsy include 'After the Rain' and 'The Day We Met'.

You can find more information on Heath at his home website.

Another CD worth mentioning is Calming Sea by Lifescapes.  This CD contains 8 tracks of relaxing music with the sound of ocean waves in the background.  And, for when you're really missing the ocean, track 9 contains over 20 minutes of uninterrupted ocean waves!  Calming Sea can be found on Amazon.com.

Thank you for visiting, and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
