 “The thirteen tracks on Shining Like the Sun are very free and evoke visions of peaceful open space while expressing a variety of mostly calming emotions. The album begins with “In The Evening,” a very peaceful improvisation that sets the relaxing tone of the album. “Treasures” has a distinctive sparkle and shimmer to it, yet conveys a sense of mystery. Treasures are not necessarily “things” - they could be light dancing on the water or stars sparkling in a clear, black sky. Whatever they are, treasures always have meaningful value and can often inspire awe - that’s what I hear in this piece. “Soon Breaks the Dawn” begins very quietly with a few notes here and there, gradually adding more movement and activity as the piece evolves. The title track is by far the longest piece on the album at almost seven minutes and is beautifully expressive as it explores a variety of related themes. “You Alone” feels intimate and tender, conveying deep emotions in the way that only music can. “Rest” soothes and envelops the listener in a warm and peaceful atmosphere. “Everlasting” brings the album to a gentle yet vibrantly spiritual close with expressions of tranquility, joy and gratitude (my interpretation). 

It has been more than six years between solo piano releases from Victoria Salmon, but it was worth the wait! Shining Like the Sun will be released on January 1, 2018 and will be available from Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby. Check it out!”
