Singer-songwriter ~ Instrumentalist ~ Mystical balladeer

Welcome! You will find 22 albums of my spiritual music here from my very latest release Heart and Soul Rhapsodies in 2014, going right back to 1987 and my debut album Open Secret. You can listen, read, buy and download, as well as view YouTubes and galleries, and catch up on any latest news like forthcoming concerts or new projects. Mostly I write and sing love songs that connect us to the sacredness of our being, but I also sing some well-loved traditional songs, and a few spiritual re-interpretations of tracks by some of the great minstrels of our time, like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. Earlier in my career I recorded some instrumental pieces and piano vignettes, too. My genre is principally singer-songwriter, folk-rock and world music, with a dash of ambient new-age and a pinch of classical. The vibration of my music is intimate, tender and loving, and I sing to heal, to open the heart and to build a bridge to the higher self.

"Your music has a sacred, healing quality that speaks directly to my soul.
It reminds me of something precious, almost forgotten.
It speaks to me of an eternal peace beyond all earthly suffering."

~ Sandy Boonman, The Netherlands

"You have a great gift for expressing the deepest language and longing of the soul."

~ Susan Neale, UK

"I have attended many of your concerts, and I find that every performance of yours is
unique as I watch you unfold over time. Each time I see and feel that you become
one with the music something mysterious happens to me. It's as if I'm receiving a
form of radiance which is being reflected as you become one with the music. What
is bestowed upon you is then released. When you sing, Divine love and music unite,
and you sing for love."

~ Gloria Vahid, UK

24/04/15 ~ Whoaaaaaaa!

Unfortunately, three projects I’ve been working on at Kerani Music in the Netherlands have had to be shelved, because the producer there has fallen ill with stress-related symptoms. He needs time to recover, and we’ve mutually agreed to part company.

I was working on a new album (with a former working title of “Raw & Reflective”) called “The Blessing and the Bliss”. Nine songs out of thirteen were almost complete. I’m not clear yet how to rescue this project, but if I do, details will emerge here and in any newsletters. We were also working on a concert DVD, and this, too, needs to be rescued, if poss… but I’m not sure how, quite, at the moment. It’s all a delicate eco-balance with time, finance and availability… I have no problem with inspiration, flow and energy!!!

My music income has been hit by this turn of events, meaning I don’t know how to finance any rescue package just now, let alone find a studio to complete them that has compatible software. Also, three concerts set up for June in Holland have had to be cancelled.

I have a KINDNESS BUTTON on this home page (top right!!!) If you could see your way clear to providing about £2500 I’d be most grateful! I’m still making YouTubes to older songs, however, and am now writing spiritually-themed poetry, which I post on Facebook! Please bear with me, music-lovers!!

Here are the recent YouTubes that have been uploaded, including some new songs sung only in concert:

~ The shepherd (concert) 
Islands (plus the Shipping Forecast)
~ Crumbling walls (concert) *NEW SONG
~ Half past ten (concert) 
~ Bird on the wire (concert) 
~ Stella Maris (concert) 
~ Communion 
~ The gypsy Madonna 
~ My redeemer 
~ Concert sound check (The Hallelujah song) 
When a man loves a woman (concert)
~ One more cup of coffee (concert) 
~ The pleasure was all mine (concert) *NEW SONG
~ I suffer your silence (concert) *NEW SONG
~ Shenandoah (concert)
~ Little wolf 
~ Shepherdess’s lament 
~ Thanksgiving 
This little bird (snow edition)
~ This little bird (timber edition) 
~ Kindling wood (camp fire edition) 
Bow down (lake edition)

During March-May I’ll be recording a studio album full of new compositions, at Kerani Music, in the Netherlands. Eight songs are now ready, with the remaining compositions being completed this month. It should be available in May or June, and I’m deeply in love with these new songs! Here are the current ready titles

~ The lightning seed
~ Spiritual love
~ Clouds like angels
~ I suffer your silence
~ Crumbling walls
~ The pleasure was all mine
~ We weep for your son
~ Do you love me still?

03/02/15 ~ Concert DVD now in production! ASHER QUINN IN CONCERT

I’m working at Kerani Music in the Netherlands to produce a DVD of 16 tracks, from a concert I gave in Limburg in May, 2014. It’ll be just the DVD… no CD!

Arno, my producer, and I are working on eight tracks, and Maggie up in Scotland (who edits my YouTubes) is working on the other eight with us. We’re interspersing close-up and mid range concert footages, with some beautiful images from my YouTubes and nature libraries. They look lovely, and it’ll be just like having a bespoke concert in your front room!

~ L.J. London
