SOUND AND VISION

Hot on the heels of my thrilling play of Song Thrush Serenade by Cerys Matthews on BBC 6 Music, I am delighted to announce that my next release on 28th May is 'How To Fly', featuring Ian McMillan.

I am particularly proud of this track.

Was thrilled that it made the Fresh Faves selection on Tom Robinson (and team)'s Fresh on the Net website. Here's what reviewer Andy Page said (edited) "“The beauty of How To Fly is instant...the most remarkable thing is just how organic and natural the track is... Helen discovered her creative muse in the form of an iPhone App during lockdown, and a few months of perseverance has resulted in an extraordinary output of creative variety and uniqueness” 

 Hope you enjoy it too!

How to Fly is available to download immediately if you pre order the CD 'Nature's Grace' which is being released in the summer.

Here's the link to the EP Nature's Grace, on which you'll find How To Fly, will be sent immediately to everyone who pre orders the EP

I've decided to release a special edition album of the tracks from my three EP's plus two birdsong tracks - Song Thrush Serenade and The Gardener's Friend (18 tracks) in celebration of the Cerys Matthews and Nitin Sawhney plays for Song Thrush Serenade and to bring new followers up to speed with my work. Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far. Here's to an exciting future!  Click here

"That was Song Thrush Serenade by @helefonix. I was sent this track through twitter & the lady who sent it started creating music in her 50's, fairly recently. I think it's amazing that she's got into making beautiful music" Nitin Sawhney, WorldWide FM

Thanks for visiting my site. 2021 brings a lot of new music, a name change from MidlifeMix to Helefonix and now a brand new exciting collaboration with Jackie Weaver - she of parish council zoom meeting fame!!
