CD's of Poetry and Music
The Mystical Prism of Being
Brian’s latest work, The Mystical Prism of Being, is a fifteen poem chapbook and accompanying CD where he worked with a group of extremely talented musicians to produce a beautiful album that illustrates the classic cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
The CD juxtaposes Brian’s poems with a variety of beloved songs including The Beatles’ “Across the Universe,” Sting’s “Sister Moon,” Van Morrison’s “Inarticulate Speech of the Heart,” and The Grateful Dead’s “Brokedown Palace”. It is a continuous braiding of poem and song resulting in poetry like you have never heard it before.
Experience the time honored tradition of storytelling with poet Brian Michael Tracy and musicians Andy Hill and Renee Safier as elegant, desriptive poems are woven around and between beautifully rendered songs giving both the music and poetry heightened meaning and emotion. Follow along as their stories walk you through the landscapes of love, loss, freedom and redemption. Truly a unique entertainment experience.
“Midnight Tea is a unique piece of Americana with few equals that will not soon be replicated.” –Mark S. Tucker
“Brian Michael Tracy has teamed with singer-songwriters Andy Hill and Renee Safier and together recorded Midnight Tea, a CD that alternates musical selection and spoken word. The works are paired, often thematically, and the result sheds new light on the creation and collaboration process.” –Bondo Wyszpolsk
