Grayhawk is a classically-trained New Age composer, keyboardist and conductor, as well as a mystic, scholar of religious studies, musician, visionary, and sonic alchemist. He is a practicing Wiccan, devoted to Earth-centered Spirituality that began with a Visionquest with Native American elders during the time of the Harmonic Convergence. Grayhawk has traveled extensively throughout the world gathering inspiration, and is a certified shiatzu practitioner/healer and psychic Tarot reader.
He is founder of the Christopher Gibney Foundation, named for his toddler son, Christopher Rainbow Dragon, who perished in 2007 from neuroblastoma. Grayhawk resides in Temecula, California; he teaches music in Escondido Public Schools to young children, many of them with special needs. He is the devoted father of Bridget, and is happily married to noted Vietnamese/American author, Nguyệt Mị (Dream Moon).
Grayhawk’s newest release is “Voice of the Ancestors.”
This visionary and ambitious album, Voice of the Ancestors, serves as a triumphant conclusion to his Shamanic Trilogy which began with Shaman Journey and continued with Blissful Magic – Spiral of the Celtic Mysteries.
Unprecedented in scope, Voice of the Ancestors, seduces the listener with eight emotionally-rich world-new age tracks that begins with three intimate trios, Transcendent Soul, The Banteay Srei Temple & Guardians of Goddess Thien Hau, featuring Wouter Kellerman’s flute, Amy Shulman’s concert harp & the exotic Asian dan bau performed by its greatest master, Hai Phuong.
Complementing Grayhawk’s state-of-the-art keyboard & synthesizer sonorities, we are graced on the title track, Voice of the Ancestors, with the vocal enchantments & native flutes of Windwalker, the undulating, sensual worldbeat percussion of Brad Dutz, the ambient guitar of David Vito Gregoli, Karen Olson’s masterful viola, Jill Haley’s exquisite english horn & oboe, the gift of Kirsten Vogelsang’s violin-cello and the incomparable vocal interpretations of Randy Crenshaw.
Then, in a surprising shift, the thunderous power of Peace Prayer unleashes 160 tracks of invocation in English, Hebrew, Farsi & Arabic to all who will listen. The unparalleled, multilingual blend of voices performed with passionate professional precision by musical sages Darlene Koldenhoven, Randy Crenshaw, Ofir Engel (A.K.A. Queen Ofir) and Bahman Mojallal is so harmonious that we feel hope in our hearts that peace will break out worldwide. Peace Prayer is offered in its full-length version (10:08) and in a short version (5:08) which may be more suitable for some broadcasting platforms.
Finally, the listener can relax into the luxury of Ambient Meditation to relish a free-form improvisational sonic temple based on the themes and textures developed throughout Voice of the Ancestors.
