Voice (2008)

Voice album cover "…with this album, I seem to have appealed to just
about every type of person…"

Voice is quite a deviation from the raw approach I took with my debut release, Love. This album is much more produced. There are lots of lush vocalscapes, effects and various keyboard sounds. Yet still, there is an organic vibe, especially with songs like I Found A Friend and Beautiful Girl (coming soon!). Acoustic instruments were used on the many of the tracks – from nylon string guitars and accordions to bouzoukis and Irish flutes. It's A New Day has a great rocking vibe and Joy with its danceable club beat is simply jubilant! :) The themes of Voice revolve around romance, friendship, hope, joy and other such virtues. All in all, it is a very uplifting and refreshing album that will leave you feeling very alive, ready to embrace life in all of its depth and color. When complete, the album will have a very world vibe, a little taste of many cultures both near and far. The opening track, The Sun The Moon The Stars, has been very well received around the world, and seems to be the emerging single. With this song and others from this album, I seem to have appealed to just about every type of person from metal to mellow.

Lyrics

the sun the moon the stars
I can hear your whisper, awaken me
Beauty of an angel, color of a dream
And it feels like heaven touching you this way
I saw forever as you began to sing…

You are the sun the moon the stars
You are the light inside my world
You are the summer's kiss of falling rain
You are everything

Here we are together, one sacred flame
Burning with desire, light and purity
Underneath the heavens, kiss and running free
In Love’s constellation, throughout eternity

You are the sun the moon the stars
You are the light inside my world
You are the summer's kiss of falling rain
You are everything

I love you, I love you, I love the light upon your face
I love you, I love you, I love your touch and gentle kiss
I love you, I love you, I love the way that you love me
I love you I love you, I think you’re beautiful
I love you, I love you, your every little perfect way

You are the sun the moon the stars!

the one
Lilies in the field
I kissed your lips and tasted what was real
Now I can know
I’ll never be alone
The arrow of your love turned flesh out of stone
You are the one

I don’t wanna live without your love
I don’t wanna live without you forever
To me you are the sun

I don’t wanna live without your love
I don’t wanna live without you another day
For me you are the one

Naked soul, transparency
I’ve give you all I’ve got
Then let you be free
One day in time
A thousand years to come
We’ll be together
Forever in love
One
You are the one

I don’t wanna live without your love
I don’t wanna live without you forever
To me you are the sun

I don’t wanna live without your love
I don’t wanna live without you another day
For me you are the one

i found a friend
Travelling far, all alone, I left behind my only home
in search of a city made with pure gold. I found a friend,
I found a friend in you!

Now we're together spirit and soul, and I've learned much more
than I've ever know, mysteries and power ancient as time.
I found a friend, I found a friend in me.

La dee dee di dee di, lai dee di dee doh
La dee dee di dee di, lai dee di dee doh

it's a new day
Hello world, this is Niko, have you got just a moment?

I woke up this morning with the sun on my face, thought about the future, love, the world a better place.
No more fear and no more doubt clouding our lives, let’s jump by faith, fly high!

It’s a new day for the world to see, there’s a hope for you and me.
It’s a new day for the world to see, there’s a hope for you and me.

Have you ever seen a flower blooming in the spring
The laughter of a child and the innocence it brings
Have you ever had a lover whisper your name
There’s a thousand reasons why we should hope and sing…

It’s a new day for the world to see, there’s a hope for you and me.
It’s a new day for the world to see, there’s a hope for you and me.

Every joy, and every dream, every hope in everything, every child and every friend, every gift in every hand!
There’s a reason to believe, there’s a reason to change, there’s a reason to hope my friend.

If you feel like hope is gone, lift up your eyes and know!
Freedom in your heart is a gift to heal your soul

It’s a new day for the world to see, there’s a hope for you and me.
It’s a new day for the world to see, there’s a hope for you and me.
