Such a Long Time
Timothy Wenzel & Anne Cozean
Beautifully dark at times, a soft blend of pop and Americana with stunning vocals.
Timothy Wenzel is an accomplished keyboard artist and prolific songwriter with five albums of instrumental New Age music to his credit. This new collaboration with extraordinary singer Anne Cozean pushes the boundary to include, for the first time, lyrics and vocals. Two songs have previously been published as instrumental versions: Such A Long Time and Christopher's Dreams.
The duo of Wenzel and Cozean dates back a number of years, collaborating for fun and for the challenge. Now these songs are available for the first time on standard distribution channels.
Such A Long Time is a song inspired by Ophelia and Hamlet. Lyrics were written by both Timothy and Anne.
This Man of Mine was inspired by an unforgettable experience of Timothy's: "A spring storm had blown through the high mountains of West Virginia, leaving in its wake a living and vibrant landscape, brilliantly lit by the sun. The forests were a thin haze of green and the red buds and wild flowers were ablaze with color. Driving on a back road through this verdant countryside, I came across a cemetery with a freshly closed grave. Beside it kneeled a young woman, weeping openly. I will never forget this. This song is dedicated to her - I hope she has found peace and happiness."
Icarus is a powerful and rebellious twist on the original legend, with love inspiring a new ending.
Falling is somewhat dark, with expressive and emotional lyrics that touch the heart.
Christopher's Dreams is a lighthearted and delightful seasonal song about the magic of dreams.
