New Year. New Music. Right Here.

New Year. New Music. Right Here.

I’ve started a new relationship with nature in my music. I’ve always been in love with natural cycles of weather, water, wind, clouds.

I come by it naturally. My grandfather was a National Weather Service weather man for 41 years. He knew clouds from both sides, now.

After going on a winter retreat to Estes Park, I decided it was time to record meditation music with nature again. It has been a while.

This is new music. On a brand new YouTube channel. (So be sure to Like and Subscribe and Hit the Bell).  

Just for you.

And it’s not yet for sale.

It will be part of a larger Nature & The Harp project that is coming out this year in 2021.


15 Minutes of Winter Harp Music & River Song. Sleep Well.
This is a brand new YouTube Channel, so please Like & Subscribe. Thank you!!
This is my favorite winter spot: The river side of Estes Park, behind MacDonald’s Bookstore and Inkwell Card Shop, next to the Big Thompson River. I’ve been coming here since this river walk opened in 1992. I missed a few years, but glad to be able to get in some twinkly lights and inspiration for “Winter Harp & River Song”, the new music in the YouTube above.

Quote: “The Idea is Not to Live Forever but to Create Something That Will.” – Andy Warhol

Music Alone Shall Live

When I stumbled across this quote, it sparked a distant memory in my ear: a round that I used to sing at Girl Scout in Colorado.

The words are famous:

“All things shall perish from under the Sky
Music alone shall live,
music alone shall live,
music alone shall live,
Never to die.”

So if we are to follow AndyW’s sage advice, and we know that “music alone shall live,” then it’s a pretty good bet that if you create music, you’ll be creating something that will live forever.

Hello. It’s been a while…

Hello. It’s been a while since we chatted. I imagine you have a few questions…

Cymber Lily Quinn, Harpist, Teacher, Hilo, HawaiiQ: What have you been up to lately? What are you harping on?

Last year was a big year for me. I spent a lot of time working on boring, difficult but technically necessary projects, including adding a store to my website for the first time, and experimenting more with social media.

All of that work meant that I had to put creating new music on the back burner for longer than I wanted to. And performing less than I wanted, as well. But I want you to have a wonderful experience with my music, all my marketing was way overdue for an upgrade.

Q: How’s Hawaii treating you?

The transition back to Hawaii has been just about as good as it could be. I have a really cute upstairs studio in downtown Hilo where I teach in the afternoons. I’ve been performing the Queen’s music, and getting ready – equipment wise – to play out more. I need a Gig Assistant for local gigs, if you know someone. And I’m still working on getting the word out more about my music…I’d love your help with that. Share my posts and vides?

Cymber Lily Quinn, Harpist, Teacher, Hilo, HawaiiQ: What about the World? How are you feeling about all that?

As a Taoist, I tried to see the good and bad in everything. As concerned as I am about the dehumanizing actions I see happened all around the globe, I also feel a great hope, especially when I think about the younger generation. I see them already taking action to bring love, peace and harmony back to the forefront of our thinking.

Q: How do you help the younger generation?

At this point in my life, I feel that my best choice is to teach and play music. If I can inspire children and adults to express themselves creatively and freely, then they are much less likely to be shackled in society as well. As a life-long teacher, I know that it only takes the right word, the right moment – which I may never know at all – to propel a student into a positive life that will change their life, and of necessity, change the life of those around them. How far the ripples of my teaching and music will reach, I will never know.

Q: What’s next in your music? Do you have new music coming out soon?

Yes! In fact, I just released a harp meditation version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” last week. I hope you find it relaxing. You can download that for free on my blog>>>here…

I’ll be adding songs by piano dudes Billy Joel, Elton John and Bruce Hornsby. I’m looking for songs that make great meditations and also reference harps. If you have favorite piano or harp songs, let me know. When I have collected 11-14 songs, I’ll release them all as a CD, and the free downloads won’t be free anymore…

Q: What about the Christmas/Holiday CD?

I know, I know. I’ve been promising a holiday CD for a while now. I’m starting with “O Holy Night,” which I am recording right now. I’ll post it soon.

Keep in touch and let me know what you’d like to hear…lots of new music is in the cooker!
