    The Relaxing Guitar Bros talk about making music

    Two brothers from Hampshire and the Isle Of Wight who have spent all the winter lockdown writing and recording together to bring you our original relaxing guitar music, played to soothe the soul and ease your mind. Being musicians from a young age we both were eager to give something back and help in whichever way we could during this difficult time, we hope our music can be used to ease people's minds and make them feel calm and chilled. Our music can be used for meditation, study, prayer, and relaxation. Sit back, relax, unwind, and enjoy the music. Why not subscribe to our YouTube channel, we deliver the best original relaxing guitar music to your ears every week and are regularly writing and composing.

    Have a great day and be blessed!

    Author Conversation : John Lugo-Trebble  Short story writer

    Talking about writing his latest story Sing! - Now available on the www.HappyStoryStore.com

    Summary about Sing

    Music is the universal language. It not only connects people but memories, places and can travel through time.

    “Sing!” follows the journey of Benny Goodman’s Sing (with a Swing) record from the early 80’s in The Bronx to London in the 90’s and Cornwall in the 10’s.

    Starting with the death of a neighbour, the record helps connect two grieving characters who share the loss of a man they knew two sides of. Moving onto London, the record provides the soundtrack of heartbreak and confusion as a woman tries to come to terms with an unknown future.  In Cornwall, it comes full circle with a couple who are giving their love a second chance and are looking to the future under the shadow of the past.

    Calls of Nature; four exquisite poems by Alan Rayner

    The new era we are travelling into with the covid lockdowns is a time to reflect on the wondrous life around us that can spiritually heal us. 

    Here Alan reads 4 of his beautiful poems that highlights nature's calm.

    About Alan

    I am an evolutionary ecologist, writer and artist. I was born in Nairobi, Kenya in 1950 and gained BA and PhD degrees at King’s College, Cambridge in 1972 and 1975. I was a Reader in Biology at the University of Bath from 1985 to 2011 and have published numerous papers and books, the latter including, most recently, 'The Origin of Life Patterns in the Natural Inclusion of Space in Flux’. I was President of the British Mycological Society in 1998 and of Bath Natural History Society from 2012 - 2018. Since 2000, I have been pioneering understanding of 'natural inclusion', the receptive-responsive evolutionary relationship between space and energy in all material form.
