Emerald Green Sound Productions

The color green is most often associated with vibrancy, life force, growth, purification, healing, and vitality.  At “Emerald Green Sound” we focus on these qualities in music, and strive to bring you the finest recordings available; music that uplifts; disengages the busy mind;  invigorates creativity, enhances integration; and stimulates  the awareness of innate wholeness.

Sacred Sites Series and Quiet Music

Music, like a pilgrimage to a sacred site, can help us remember in the deepest sense that all beings are sacred and indeed all spaces in form and formless are sacred.Our intersection with the formless is my goal for this music.

Smooth Jazz Series

Upbeat Jazz with melodic funky grooves. The heart is still there but so is the grease. emeraldsoundlogo
