Iceland - the album

(A note from the composer)

I led a personal development retreat in Iceland this past May and the experience was nothing short of life changing.  Our days were filled with both outward adventures in vast and beautiful nature, and inward moments of deep introspective reflection.

This trip undoubtedly helped me to more clearly see the boundless potential within me as well as the boundless potential within others. And so I felt compelled to compose a set of songs that could inspire anyone to tap into this same magical state of balanced inner and outer awareness. I wanted to compose something that could help people feel more connected, breathe deeper, and most importantly get into "flow".  

What is flow?  It's that powerful feeling when you're totally immersed in the intensity and wonder of whatever it is you're doing - midnight driving, studying for a test, walking through nature, practicing yoga etc.  It’s what happens when you’re equally aware of the divinity in both the inner and outer world. Flow is being present.

And so I hope this album inspires you to become more present - present to your own unlocked potential and present to how you can unlock the potential of others.  Why?  Because your ability to connect to the greatness within is only as powerful as your ability to activate the greatness in others.

And that’s why proceeds from all 2018 album sales will go directly towards purchasing 12,500 gallon water infrastructure for students at Calavera Elementary in Naga, Cebu in the Philippines.  Talking about the theory of human potential is meaningless without the actual physical practice of it.

 “Iceland” - a soundtrack meant to help elevate universal consciousness - will be out on all digital retailers on September 5, 2018.  Special thanks to lululemon athletica and Equinox for helping to sponsor the 2018 "Iceland" world tour that spans from Stockholm to Manhattan to Brussels.

Andrew Abaria’s goal in creating these ambient songs was to help people be “in the moment,” regardless of what that might be – driving, doing yoga or other meditation, or just living life. He has definitely succeeded in his goal. These songs are mellow and have a calming and soothing effect on the listener. If you need help relaxing after a stressful day, put this one on repeat and all your cares will just float away - definitely get this one!
