Lite Roast  (music for meditation and relaxation)


Lite Roast is a refreshing blend of uplifting harmony, haunting melody, and deep resonance, blending seamlessly to create an experience that will leave you relaxed and peaceful.
Lite Roast features Jim on guitar with an Ebow, (an electric device that simulates a bow to give the guitar an ethereal sound; allowing it to mimic strings, horns, and woodwinds.) and Bettie on accordion (played in a drone style).
The music was inspired by the beauty of the Ojai valley in southern California; and cultivated during live performances at local markets and Meditation Mount, one of the finest meditation retreats on the western coast. The song, “Ojai Birds”, features the gentle song of morning birds recorded spontaneously one day near the river bottom, in the town of Miner’s Oaks, west of Ojai.

Have a great day !
Jim and Bettie

All original relaxing music great for yoga, meditation, stress reduction, and all healing arts.

Xpresso Blend

Our 3rd CD – Xpresso Blend  is a conceptual music and video  art piece  following in the style of Dark Roast,  but with the spirit of Lite Roast. It was first begun during our artist residence at the Beatrice Wood center for the Arts . For now we have put  Xpresso Blend on the shelf until a later time, waiting until we have the proper resources to finish it the way we envision it.
