In the late 1980's, I was in college at the University of Maine. One weekend, I decided to visit Bar Harbor, a charming coastal town and home to Acadia National Park. So I walked into a gift shop and there was this music playing. And I took notice right away because the song (even though a different genre), sounded a bit like Call Me by Blondie. But the song and the entire CD, was decidedly New Age and yet I couldn't get it out of my head. There's was just something about the the rhythm and feel of this CD that stuck with me.
That song was Celestial Soda Pop from a CD titled Deep Breakfast.
Deep Breakfast to date has sold 1,256,814 copies. It was the first independently released album to reach Platinum status (over 1 million copies sold).
It's music from a man who has, in total, sold over two million albums, won three Billboard Awards, and yet, he's never made a music video and doesn't go on tour.
That man is Ray Lynch.
