Oren’s First Album is Officially Released!!

Music to me is the reminder of how to be and live in the world. I learned guitar at the age of twelve and started composing music at 15 because there were ways of being I could only access through music. At the University of Hawaii, as a starving student, I found that playing my music with friends was the best way to completely forget about hunger. Making impromptu recording of jam sessions with friends and handing them out, some people said they played them so often that they wore out their CDs, and others said that my music got them through some of the hardest times of their lives. I currently perform regularly at Worship Services. One of the recordings of a performance reached the ears of Elyjah Lyk of Trine Records, who contacted me and offered to sponsor me with recording and engineering the album. Without the kindness of many people, this album would not have been possible. LIVE DEEP is a brief encapsulation of 22 years of music composition fueled by ever-rising consciousness and the synchronicities of support from the Universe. Check it out and see where it takes you!!  Listen to tracks online!

D, C#m (Verses) | Em, Bm, Em, Bm, D, Amaj, Bm (Chorus)

Something in the breeze that’s warmed by sunlight makes me smile, the light of love upon you blowing. Something in the trees that dance and sway upon your kiss, the winds of love lift our wings up in the sky. Something in the ocean rolling softly makes me smile, mother earth rocks you gently. Something in the sunlight sparkling dancing on your waves, sliding down a mountain of water onto shore.

Smile and rejoice in the day that the day that the Lord has made. Hear the laughter of the children dancing, helping me singing. Something’s glowing, one thing knowing.

Something in the soft strong warmth of your hug makes me smile, the light of love surrounds you gently. A cold wet nose panting puppy kisses on their faces, the joy of love toss a ball and watch in wonder. Something in the melting of moist chocolate on my lips, sweetness of love fills you tingling. Something in the sparkling shining eyes of a child, angelic innocence reminds us who we are.

Smile and rejoice in the day that the day that the Lord has made. Hear the laughter of the children dancing, helping me singing. Something’s glowing, one thing knowing.

My best friend asked me if I had to pay the owl from Clash of the Titans to sing backup on this recording.  Actually the owl didn’t charge me much, just a spot of oil for his wings!

D, A, C, G  (Chorus)  D, Dbass, G, A (Verse)

It doesn’t matter if I’m not wise, I see the light shining from behind your eyes
This love is tingling warm, makes my heart glow, standing amazed and in wonder

Whales dive down the ocean deep, how far they go I cannot see, I don’t know, But I’d love to be one for a…Days gone by the earth was flat, sail the sea over the edge now its round, How I’d love to see it from the… Center of the galaxy, shaped just like you and me where’s the key, How I’d love to know who I am

It doesn’t matter if I’m not wise, I see the light shining from behind your eyes
This love is tingling warm, makes my heart glow, standing amazed and in wonder

Imagination inside my head, comes to life wake up from bed, I don’t know why it’s come true every… Time it’s said goes front to back, in days past what did they lack I don’t know, but I’d love to see it with my…Eyes of Gold and eyes of Blue, what makes them shine in me and you I don’t know, how I’d love to know who I am

It doesn’t matter if I’m not wise, I see the light shining from behind your eyes
This love is tingling warm, makes my heart glow, standing amazed and in wonder

Look Up (song)

G, D, Am, C, D

Lift your eyes and look up, look and open up, to your power within,
look up and see the richness of heaven,
What do you see, in the skies of blue with clouds and winds of love

Hot walking souls, stepping to and fro look up.
Whatever you got within, offer it up unto the one you know,
Then you can see, from a higher place upon the wings of love.

Lift your eyes and look up, look and open up, to your power within,
look up and see the richness of heaven,
What do you see, in the skies of blue with clouds and winds of love

Energy flows where attention goes, look up.
A living light within, moves into the ones who love and trust,
Then they can see, resonate unto the holy name of love

Lift your eyes and look up, look and open up, to your power within,
look up and see the richness of heaven,
What do you see, in the skies of blue with clouds and winds of love

My Treasure (song)

Am, AmSus, Dm, Emaj
You are my treasure, you are my golden egg, I cannot measure, my love for you

Am, Dm, Emaj, Am
I love you more than the stars in the sky, More than the moon, than the Sun shining high

You are so full of love, so full of beauty, so Magical is the power of your soul

You came to this earth for a special reason, you are the secret that will transform the world
