  • (1888PressRelease) October 11, 2013 - Invitation from Within is Ann Licater's third album on her own label (Cul de Sac Mystic Productions), which finds her returning to her Midwestern roots to record Native American, silver and alto flutes with sound healing instruments and vocal layers. It is also her second time working with GRAMMY®-nominee Peter Phippen in a co-producer role. Norwegian-born composer and internationally-recognized orchestral conductor Ivar Lunde, of Skyline Studios, Eau Claire, Wisconsin rounds out the producing team that makes Invitation from Within a work of musical art. By all accounts, it is a pristine recording a standard of Licater's studio work powerfully relaxing and artistically expressed. Invitation from Within is more refined than her previous work, yet remains organic in its expression and true to her nature as an improvisational world flutist. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and her website.

    In addition to performing on Native American flutes, Licater returns to her musical roots playing silver and alto flutes. Licater's preparation for creating Invitation from Within included her October 2012 trip to Rome and Florence, Italy where she performed at the Awakened World Conference, which was sponsored by the Association of New Thought and the International Inter-religious Peace Council. There, she met peace activist Ela Gandhi from South Africa, who was inspired by Licater's flute playing and its affect on her and stated, "Ann Licater's music is soft and yet overpowering, it reaches the depth of my being and awakens the spirit inside of me." The title Invitation from Within reflects her belief that looking inside oneself through meditation and relaxation opens up an awareness that we are interconnected with everyone and everything. "In this awakened consciousness, we can act on intuition and trust the results, which will be inspired and create ease," she says. "Our Western culture, especially the fast-pace of corporate America and our technologically-driven society, is causing great stress. People need a way to slow down and get in touch with their inner guidance system.

    This album is truly an Invitation from Within to listen, relax and be still."
    Licater's previous releases - Doorway to a Dream and Following the Call - won critical accolades and various awards.
