"Give up the fear of darkness
Surrounded in the light
Give up fear of being wrong
And the need to be right
Unto Thee, Unto Thee, I give everything I am Unto Thee" - Gurunam Singh
Change, the new and widely anticipated album by Gurunam Singh is full of the rich, and soulful tones he is known for.
For him, this album sees the fruition of a dream, collaborating with Thomas Barquee who produced the album. Thomas has certainly added his magical sauce to this album, creating layers of instrumentation and helping Gurunam Singh connect with the purest place in his vocals.
For Gurunam Singh in his own words, 'Change is the calm before the storm. It's like sitting on the fence when you don't know what to do, but then the fence breaks and you have to deal with whatever is in front of you, around you or in you, as it were.'
He says,'The part of me that spent time with music when I was 8 to about 15 came out here on Change... and also, the more seductive sides of me and the grief and the anger. These emotions fueled the inspiration. I think this CD is the beginning of something beautiful. It feels like an honest CD.'
All of the tracks have a magic to them. Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa starts the album and melts any hardness you may be harboring with Gurunam Singh's much loved smooth buttery voice.
Namo Namo Dev Guru is rich and sweet, contrasting with the hypnotic, rhythmic sounds of Harji.
With Gurunam Singh it is the emotional depth of his voice that draws us in when he sings. What you get is devotion, pure and simple.
He has spent some time studying classical Indian music, though his albums reflect his Western influences as well. Change is a really soothing album overall, and would be a valuable addition to anyone?s yoga music collection.

When Gurunam Singh graduated high school he was given a guitar and began composing simple songs. At 22 he found Yogi Bhajan and Sikh Dharma. He sang and played along with others and over time began leading chants in the early morning hours, before the rising of the sun. He spent lots of time in the solitude of his own home, and in the Sikh temple late at night, chanting to God and writing devotional songs. Gurunam's influences range from gospel, folk and country to classical Indian raag and traditional Sikh hymns to many of the current artists who sing devotional Hindu chants. He occasionally studied with some great ragi's such as Bhai Avtar Singh, from India, and Dya Singh from Australia. But his music is very simple. Anyone can chant along.
