A Special CD Review: The Christmas Story

Christmas Story CoverSeveral years ago, we were humbled to receive this review for “The Christmas Story” by the Daily OM. We share it here…

“Harpist Tami Briggs is a sound healer whose angelic, gentle playing bypasses all resistance to touch the root chord of the human soul. She honed her healing skill via personal appearances at hospitals and hospices, bringing her soothing sounds right up to the beds of those most in need. Bringing her knowledge of healing into the recording studio, Briggs makes harp music that’s simple, sweet, and deeply soothing. Embracing a less-is-more strategy, The Christmas Story interprets classic holiday standards into gentle solo-harp pieces, potent enough to hush a room of chatting relatives, relaxing enough to play in a child’s bedroom to help them fall asleep on Christmas Eve. And if you should find yourself alone for the holidays, Briggs becomes an angelic friend, her music a shimmering presence rooting you back to humanity.

Capturing the vibe of a live performance, The Christmas Story offers audio quality sharp enough to give the illusion that Briggs is playing right in the same room as you mull through your presents or nap on the couch in a sea of torn wrapping paper….The CD wraps up with the feeling of belonging to something larger than oneself, as Briggs’ gentle touch with the harp suffused even her frequent impassioned glissandos with warmth. More than just a bunch of carols played on the harp, Briggs skirts in and around the familiar melodies with the finesse of a jazz soloist, albeit one with no agenda of showing off chops, but rather of hitting all the right notes to warm the back of your neck and open your heart. Put on The Christmas Story when you need a gentle reminder of what the holidays are about: peace, love, and spiritual regeneration.”

You can order either CDs or download it.

A Wonderful Review!

Christmas Story CoverOver the years, Daily OM has supported my harp music a lot. A couple years ago, they wrote a lovely review of “The Christmas Story,” one of my Christmas CDs:

Featuring “The Christmas Story”

Featuring “The Christmas Story,” this is one of my holiday CDs. Since most Christmas music is recorded in the summer (so the CDs are ready for the holidays), “The Christmas Story” has always been special because it was recorded on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

When the Daily OM wrote a review and shared it with their 1 million customers, I knew they understood the special grace of this solo harp CD.  I am deeply touched and humbled by their beautiful words…

A Special Review!

The Daily OM shared this beautiful review about my “Blessings to You” CD with its 1 million+ customers. I am deeply touched and humbled …

“Harpist extraordinaire Tami Briggs makes deeply soothing instrumental music that inspires deep tranquility and a sense of wellness. She first realized the healing power of the harp’s angelic sound while playing it for patients at hospitals and hospices. Now, Briggs combines the music with her knowledge of healing to move into the world of recorded healing sounds.

For Blessings to You, simple and eloquently heartfelt melodies and countermelodies form naturally occurring wells of comfort and solace, penetrating the “lullaby ground zero” of a deep-seated sense of self and security. Close your eyes and you can feel past infancies and access their feeling of security and warmth—feelings that are available to us at any age and time, regardless of actual circumstance. After all, as long as one has the right key, one can access anything. Briggs has the key in these template melodies that seem to predate our own natural existence, like timeless caresses from the eternal mother to whom we are all, always, just a few months old, innocent, and loveable.”

Featuring “The Christmas Story”

This week we are letting you know about one of my Christmas CDs called “The Christmas Story.” It was recorded on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 2001. Since most Christmas music on the market is recorded in the summer (so it’s available in time for the holidays), I have always known that this CD had the holiday spirit infused in a very magical way.

The Daily OM listened to this CD and wrote a review. I am humbled by their beautiful words…
