Release Date: November 2008
Sacred Earth's fifth album is a dedication to love ... pure and simple love.
Soft, warm, dynamic and very beautiful - a quintessential progression in the Sacred Earth musical journey. The perfect accompaniment to any yoga class or massage session, this album will caress your heart and open your spirit to the boundless realm of love.
Jethro's flute playing, some of the most beautiful we have heard yet, soars across a multicoloured landscape of musical bliss including harmonium, deep warm strings, light harp, bass guitar, acoustic guitar and lilting tampura.
At the same time we feel a new softness and contentment in Prem's voice as she sings to us her intimate feelings of devotion to the whole of creation. Prem's version of the Gyatri Mantra moves straight into the heart, opening like a flower, encouraging us to bloom as big, bold and bright as we can.
It is clear that Sacred Earth continue to grow with the exploration of new sounds and styles on this album, whilst maintaining the Sacred Earth flavour we have all grown to love.

About the Artist
Based in Victoria Australia, Sacred Earth is the creation of Jethro & Prem Williams. For the last 9 years Jethro and Prem have been traveling the world, performing live the music of Sacred Earth. Prem shares with us her heart felt devotion for Spirit and our precious Mother Earth through mantra and songs from the heart and is supported by multi instrumentalist and husband Jethro, playing an array of instruments from around the world including Shakuhachi (Japanese flute), Indian Bansuri, Irish Tin & Low whistles, Acoustic Guitar and songs from the heart
Their music is used extensively throughout the world in the massage, yoga, mediation, healing, spa & film industries to evoke a feeling of well-being, peace, and ambience. In 2003 Sacred Earth began touring Australia wide, offering sacred music concerts. In this short time they have been embraced by the Australian Community and now often play to sold out concerts around Australia. Their music is awe inspiring, uplifting and takes the listener on a deep inner journey. The stillness that is discovered during their concert performance is profound. Often moving listeners to tears by the shear beauty of the music.
Over the past 8 years. they have recorded 6 superb albums selling over 90,000 copies in this time. All of their albums have received rave reviews in a myriad of publications including 'Women's Day', 'Australian Yoga Life', 'Wellbeing Magazine', 'Living Now', 'The Art of Healing', 'Nature & Health', 'Music & Wellness-Italy' and more.....
Jethro plays an array of instruments including, Indian Bansuri (bamboo flute), Japanese Shakuhatchi (Flute), Irish tin and low whistles, Native American Flute, Acoustic Guitar, percussion & occasionally we get to hear his beautiful soulful voice
Prem came upon the music industry, 14 years ago, almost by mistake. She had spent many years in the festival/folk scene with drum and guitar in hand, having a ball but lacking inner contentment. One day while alone at home she started to sing.
