Prepare For Messages From The Aether
-Stage Left Entertainment May 2016
Ric Hansen learned the ropes in Hawaii playing clubs as a guitarist bass and keyboard player. His recent work includes an advertising soundtrack for the book series The Viewer (available on Amazon) and a local radio show soundtrack.
His former profile (listed as Ricci Hansen) on IndieCharts.com is currently ranked (click on members pick) as 5 overall and 3 in the rock category. Ric explains that he created a new profile because his former profile and original music tracks were not up to his acceptable standards. Ric stated he has learned a few studio tricks since 2008.
Restricted by club owners to perform only popular covers for 15 years left him yearning to leave his own musical thumbprint on the world. He is currently in the studio fusing ancient and modern scales modes and tunings delivered by acoustic percussive and electric instruments and stirring it all up with different international cultural styles of music to spread over a variety of genres ranging from americana to anthemic metal for a sound all his own. He claims that all of the upcoming tracks will present a message he has been tasked to present to the world by his spirit guides during meditative sessions. He takes this very seriously. Writing music for such a large and diverse demographic is quite an undertaking... he proclaims with a overwhelmed look. However I have set aside everything in my life to complete this mission. I was told that my training is over and now must serve my Earthly purpose. I was not expecting that at all! Frankly I have to admit I am surprised at what is transpiring in the studio! There will be something for almost every musical taste. The ideas flow right in...I write almost automatically...then cant believe I am coming up with this stuff! It is truly amazing...! he exudes confidently.
His debut epic will be ready for release in July 2017. To get a taste of his well rounded experience Ric Hansens track list on IndieCharts.com showcases his studio ability on a song written for his father an advertising soundtrack a few cover tunes and even a one-take cell phone recording as a teaser for his prelude song titled The Calling. Watch for his debut work temporarily titled Messages From the Aether. Available for release in July 2017 on ITunes and Amazon.
