We Share The Moon
Lissa Coffey &
David Vito Gregoli
We can remember with great fondness Song Devine by Lissa Coffey
& David Vito Gregoli, it was one of the biggest hits of 2021 and
remained in the charts and the minds of good musical followers the globe over
for seemingly an age, well the partnership of divine inspiration are back with
another album entitled We Share The Moon.
This journey of plenty starts with the opening composition
entitled Written All Over Your Face,
and featuring the vocal talents of feat Leela
Ladnie, this vibrant modern upbeat song gifts us as listeners a chance to
bathe in the sonic realms of a globally fused devotional inspired composition.
We can follow that up with the title song, We Share The Moon (feat Leela and Cooper Ladnier) this has to
be one of my personal favourites from the album. The softness of this creation
is so palpable; its melodic structures are deeply moving and visual, and the
key change and energy uplift of the chorus was equally sublime.
I Surrender could well be a vital composition
for the world in this day and age, time to let it go and drop the baggage as Mitten used to sing back in the day. The
vocals of Ladnie are featured in this fine multi-instrumental composition, the
onward progression of the percussion and the flavoursome sitar brought a
wonderful texture to the piece.
Net of Love (feat Donna
De Lory) is up next
and this driving piece has an almost folk element to its construction at times,
but one that has a deep anthem like motif. The powerful vocals add much to the
weight of the song and this could very well be a hit single if released as
such. There is a great strength to be found on this most exciting of
manifestations, but it would also be good to remember in De Lory they have a
singer who has performed on the highest of stages with artists like Madonna,
and featured on many hit albums from artists like Carly Simon and Bette Midler.
We Share The Moon by Lissa Coffey & David Vito Gregoli is music inspired by the
words of Rumi, Hafiz, Mirabai and others, and the energies of this exciting
collection of motivational muses is further highlighted at the half way marker
with the track Listen (feat N. Nicole Gilbert) a truly
beautiful ballad, the enthusing lyrics and vocals are wonderfully encouraging.
Something In Between sees the return of vocalist Leela Ladnie and with that she
contributes her lush tones to one of the most chilled tracks from the album;
this song is as easy as a cumulus cloud on a May afternoon, as it drifts across
the landscape of eternity.
This beauty of a track is followed up by Krishna Govinda, as we move ever onwards into this abundant
release. The deft percussive elements here make this track for me, on a sublime
devotional offering, one that has a sumptuous and bubbly pop ethic to its
Like Ambrosia (feat
Leela and Cooper Ladnier) takes us under the bridge of brilliance, and this
quite imploring bhajan shines like the noon day summer sun, the construction of
the verse towards the chorus reminds me of the UK prog band Renaissance at times, but its delightful
progression is a respectful and calming opus of plenty, like Ambrosia itself.
The penultimate offering from the album is entitled All I Thought Was Mine and features Leela Ladnier and Geoffrey Gordon. There
is a delightfully mysterious flow about this offering that is so enticing, and
the upbeat tempos with their reflective projections are sublime to be a part of
as a listener.
The final gift from Lissa
Coffey & David Vito Gregoli and this amazing new release is Maha Mantra (feat Vishvambhar Sheth, Venu Bhanot, Pankaj Mishra). David Vito Gregoli also stars in many
roles and instrumentations on this track and this album, and it should indeed
be noted as the following list will no doubt illustrate that he is most
certainly instrumentally prolific, with contributions on drums, bass, acoustic
and electric guitars, sitar, percussion, Indian percussion, keyboards, piano,
Irish bouzouki, and backing vocals.
We Share The Moon by Lissa Coffey & David Vito Gregoli is indeed the follow up to
the star studded and ultra-successful Song
Devine, but here on this latest release we have an album that is equally as
spiritually minded, but may even be more accessible to the first time listener,
and as such this new release will be sure to sail up the charts as did its
predecessor, and in doing so bring joy and comfort to all who listen to its
