We hope you’ll enjoy exploring Fiona’s Signature – Synchronicity, ten emotive pieces recorded and produced with the team at Imaginary Road Studios in Vermont.
Fiona Joy originally wrote this album as a plaintive personal exploration of the deteriorating “signature” bone in her left hand, and how it may affect her ability to share her life’s work...whilst pondering hopes, dreams, love and reality, this heartfelt project evolved into a reimagining of modern fairytales featuring magic, imagination and the worlds into which we escape.
In spite of the Doctor’s prognosis, this became her 11th album, and Fiona is performing more than ever. Signature - Synchronicity continues Fiona Joy’s musical and sonic evolution, further establishing her international credibility in both the live concert space, and among New Age and Contemporary Instrumental recording artists. Consecutive months at #1 on ZMR, a busy touring schedule, and a growing appreciation for her work in the audiophile world are icing on the cake for Fiona Joy, who first and foremost, loves to simply focus on the music.
Recorded on a very unique Australian hand-made 97 key Stuart and Son's piano, produced by the team at Imaginary Road Studios, Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton, and James Englund, album highlights include a New Age Beat-box track with Fiona's son Nick Hawkins and legendary Bassist Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel); the album also highlights Fiona Joy's ethereal vocals and a number of singer/songwriter tracks...an exciting new range of work from a multi-talented and award-winning composer, pianist, singer and producer who has learned, firsthand, that music heals in every way.
“One of the brightest lights in the New Age genre, Fiona Joy Hawkins is poised to move into stardom and we have only to watch to see it happen”
Will Ackerman (Founder Windham Hill Records)
Bob Ludwig (13-time Grammy Winner) from Gateway Mastering concurs:
"Fiona Joy is a TRUE artist, constantly growing, Signature - Synchronicity is the latest expression of her prodigious talent, I urge you to check it out."
"Fiona Joy once again pours her heart and soul into playing these compositions and adds her soft, sultry vocal talents as well (on selected tracks). Songs range from somber and pensive to rollicking and energizing, held together by superb production, engineering and mixing/mastering. Chalk up another tour de force for the talented and gorgeous Aussie pianist, as well as the crew and players at IR Studios." - Reviewer Bill Binkleman
"As a full time recording and touring musician, I am proud to present the most important and significant album of my career - a New Age album telling life stories as modern day fairytales." – Fiona Joy
