Welcome! You will find 23 albums here, from my very latest collection of original songs The Blessing & the Bliss in 2015, going right back to my debut instrumental album Open Secret in 1987. You can listen to samples, read descriptions, buy CD's and downloads, watch YouTubes, see galleries and find out about concerts and forthcoming events in these pages! My songs, instrumental pieces and piano vignettes are spiritually themed, intimate and heart-centered in intent. I sometimes also re-interpret traditional songs and great love ballads by other troubadours of our times, like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, and combine this musical output with a private practice as a transpersonal psychotherapist.
My faith is in Spirit, rather than in religion. I have no creed. My teachers have been Sufis, shamans and mystics. The Christ for me is also the Dao… the bridge from the apparent to the real.
"Your music has a sacred, healing quality that speaks directly to my soul.
It reminds me of something precious, almost forgotten.
It speaks to me of an eternal peace beyond all earthly suffering."
~ Sandy Boonman, The Netherlands
"You have a great gift for expressing the deepest language and longing of the soul."
~ Susan Neale, UK
"I have attended many of your concerts, and I find that every performance of yours is
unique as I watch you unfold over time. Each time I see and feel that you become
one with the music something mysterious happens to me. It's as if I'm receiving a
form of radiance which is being reflected as you become one with the music. What
is bestowed upon you is then released. When you sing, Divine love and music unite,
and you sing for love."
~ Gloria Vahid, UK

18/09/15 ~ New album THE BLESSING & THE BLISS now available!!
A new album of mine The Blessing & the Bliss is now available! There are thirteen original tracks, and seventy minutes of music here. The songs are spiritually themed, and are the first set of new, original songs I’ve composed since February, 2013, reflecting an intense and vibrant spiritual journey during this time.
The project began in February 2015 at Kerani Music in the Netherlands, but was halted in late March, due to the Dutch production team withdrawing for various reasons. The cavalry arrived in the form of Tim Rock, and his studio in Norfolk, England, and I completed the songs there between June-August.
My youngest son Isaac, 17, stepped in to do the artwork.
18/09/15 ~ Asher Quinn poems on YouTube
After an ‘altered’ episode in March, spiritual poems began to occur to me. Nine have come so far. The first two of these Dive deep and The living waters have now been made into YouTubes, edited by Maggie Arrowsmith up in Scotland, from my scripts.
