A personal anecdote from Susan Kohler about the musical influences in her life…

“My dad played music all the time while I was growing up, LP’s in the living room, cassettes in the car. I learned all the lyrics to all the songs listening to Ella, June, Peggy, Eydie, Keely, Jo, Barbara. I started recording as a gift to my dad, for sharing his love of music with me. Original or covers, songs are the expression of the many facets of the heart along life’s journey. May we all share the experience.”

Fortune smiled when I met Rupert Wates, a most gifted singer-songwriter. Rupert is prolific, and insightful, becoming a force in American music, touching the hearts of his listeners. His story is hard to pin down, the journey of his music covers all aspects of human experience, pushing the boundaries of music from artful to playful, to pensive and inward-looking, to cries for social justice.

Rupert has graciously granted me the opportunity to record some of his songs. Together with jazz veterans Jeff Colella, Chris Colangelo and others, we have almost completed “Wide Open Heart,” the songs of Rupert Wates.

I’m posting a few songs as a sneak peek into this latest project. As you listen, I hope his songs will inspire you to live from the center of a wide open heart. — Susan Kohler

Fear of Flying – Life is a collection of stories, dreams and memories; at the root of it all, the power of love to pull us through.

Traveling Circus – Take your place in the center ring, shine your light brightly before the final bow. Listen, as the song conjures the carnival scenes of life.
