Nathen Aswell is a gifted musician and songwriter from British Columbia. Many of you will recognize Nathen from Sound Connections and from the house band at the Empower Posi Awards and from those amazing “jams” out under the stars. Nathen is a totally amazing guitarist and bassist and his songs have rhythm!
These songs invite the listener to take a break from rushing around trying to complete the items on your “to do” list and instead, to breathe in the moment, allowing your good to find you and to realize that in this one moment you can do or be anything that you desire.
One of my favorites from this CD is the song “Here and Now”. This song speaks about the importance of realizing that we have the power to restore our lives to the present moment. Instead of worrying about the future or regretting the past, we can embrace the “now” and make positive change.
“Choose Love” invites us to always choose the path of love. When faced with those everyday decisions about which path to choose, we can always find the right path by choosing the path that reflects love. Who wouldn’t like a little more love in their lives?
“Little by Little” reminds us that every day is a new adventure and that anything we might undertake begins with that first step. Nathen reminds us that it is sometimes impossible to see the outcome of change when you’re in the middle of it. With a totally cool groove and a positive spin, this song reminds us that everyone is undergoing the same remarkable possibility of positive change and that things happen “little by little”.
I enjoy this CD. The songs are all catchy and upbeat, without being preachy. And, the songs all give us a glimpse into the wonderful energy and presence of Nathen. www.EmpowerMA.com
