I would like to bring to people's attention the music of retired singer/songwriter Peter Conover. He was popular a few years ago in the Madison Area and in the Madison Pagan community. I do not understand why his music has never been reviewed by pagan publications like Circle Magazine or New Witch or Witchvox. One of his songs, "Circle In" sounds like it was written for Circle Sancuary. I am not a member of Circle. I am new to the pagan community and I came across this artist's wonderful music. I feel that it exemplifies the spirit of paganism. Not all of his songs are pagan themed. Some are slightly political, some are about life in general, and all are poetry. "Chain and Ball" and "A Message Into Time" for example are masterpieces of stream of consciousness poetry, in my opinion. From reading his website http://www.peterconover.com
I know that he has performed at Circle's gatherings as well as at Pagan Spirit Gatherings hosted by the Avalon community. One of his songs, "Avalon is Calling" was dedicated to the leader of the Avalon Community. "Avalon is Calling" brings to mind such vivid and beautiful images of the place that I feel I have been there, even though in reality I have not. The feeling of the pagan themed songs on his CD's touch the spirit of everything I perceive as paganism. Why have these two CD's, Metamorphic
, not ever been reviewed? If you want to hear for yourself what I'm talking about please go to his website, listen to his free downloads and buy his CD's through CD Baby. Please support this artist who's music can and will touch your soul, because whether you like the music or not, it will touch your soul. It's that good.
