WATER SIGN (ALBUM) 2020
“Remarkable album. Highly recommended.” R J Lannan www.artisanmusicreviews.com
“All of Lanz's albums have been exceptional, but some of the music on Water Sign is very dramatic, putting it right up there with my favorites.”
K. Parsons www.mainlypiano.com
"Most of my life, I have lived near bodies of water. Small lakes, the Great Lakes, streams, canals, the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and now the Mediterranean sea.
I grew up in Seattle, which has quite a reputation for its rainfall and I was born under the astrological sign of Cancer, which is of course known as one of the water signs.
I've written songs with titles like Rain Forest, Behind The Waterfall, Desert Rain, Water from the Moon, Norwegian Rain and here, the six pieces from the Water Sign Suite: Wonder Wave, Rain Dancer Returns, As Rivers Flow, The Water Bearer, Moonlight Lake, and Neptune Dancing.
Living now on the island of Cyprus, the sun plays a role in my musical life as a source of inspiration. But water and the flow of life speaks to me at the deepest level. I am truly all about flow.
So with that in mind, I offer the WATER SIGN album... inspired by the sun, the moon, family, romantic love and of course water.”
