Belinda Carlisle – Wilder Shores

September 29, 2017 - Wilder Shores is a genre-busting album of eastern and western influences, fusing the worlds of energizing pop music and elevating Kundalini mantras. The powerhouse voice of pop superstar Belinda Carlisle soars over these chant tracks with precision and grace. With Petra Haden on Violin, Gabe Lopez on piano and guitar, and Arjun Bruggeman on tabla, the musicality of Wilder Shores is deeply authentic to the genre of kirtan, but deftly translated into an ultra-current sound that makes these mantras sound like chart-toppers. The power of the mantras themselves to bring peace, balance and strength to the heart is supported by powerful English tracks, including a new acoustic version of Carlisle's international hit "Heaven is a Place on Earth" that fans will not want to miss. Wilder Shores is filled with music equally at home in yoga studios and rock stadiums, leading the wave of spirituality in the music mainstream. Wilder Shores debuted at #1 on the Amazon UK World Music Chart and #1 on the Amazon US New Age Chart. Listen to Wilder Shores on iTunes or Spotify.
