Adrian Freedman "Kindred Souls" out today.
"I feel a mixture of relief, honour and joy at finally reaching the date of release for the Kindred Souls album.
Relief, because of the time and effort it has taken to shape these ten pieces into the final form and flow on the album.
Honour, because as I look at the list of amazing musicians I feel so very fortunate and grateful to find myself in such magical company.
Joyful, because I really love this music, feel so happy to offer to the world at this time - peaceful and soothing, uplifting, surprising, expansive, dynamic and transcendental.
This project grew from very humble beginnings as I made random recordings with various musicians on my travels around the world."
