1888 PressRelease - Three years before dying in a plane crash off the California coast, legendary singer/songwriter John Denver wrote what might have been his greatest musical work, "The Wandering Soul - Love is the Answer." Denver did not record the tune but it has now been released by singer/songwriter Luanne Hunt, who says it contains a powerful message that is timely, thought-provoking and awe-inspiring.
Los Angeles, CA -- Legendary singer/songwriter John Denver had plenty of thought-provoking things to say through his timeless tunes, such as "Perhaps Love," "Annie's Song" and "Sunshine On My Shoulders." But Denver's most profound message seems to have come through a song he never recorded called "The Wandering Soul (Love is the Answer)." It is said to be one of the last he wrote before his untimely death in a plane crash in 1997.
Desiring to share Denver's masterpiece about the true meaning of our existence, acclaimed Indie folk singer/songwriter Luanne Hunt has recorded and released "The Wandering Soul (Love is the Answer)" on the Star Creek Entertainment label. The song takes listeners on a spiritual journey leading to the revelation that genuine peace and happiness can only be found within.
"I am deeply moved by 'The Wandering Soul (Love is the Answer),'" said Matthew Flickstein, Telly Award-winning documentary filmmaker of "With One Voice."
"The lyrics are exquisite and Luanne's voice and presence profoundly touch my heart. I can see how her voice and music can open people's eyes to the Divine and lovingly transform their hearts."
Hunt's own musical journey has been one of profound personal, creative and spiritual transformation. By focusing on her artistic vision, she found the strength to overcome deep emotional wounds and follow her authentic path as a singer/songwriter.
Over the years, Hunt has built an impressive list of accomplishments and a worldwide fan base with her contemporary folk songs. Her 2007 CD "Breaking Through" produced two hit singles on U.S. and European Charts. The enchanting "Solace In The Wind" reached No. 1 on the European Country Music Association's chart (Belgium) in July 2010.
The song also landed on the 2009 Grammy ballot in two categories: Best Country Song and Best Female Country Performance.
In December 2011, Hunt's holiday tune "Christmas Without You" went to No. 1 on the European Country Music Association charts in France, Denmark and Austria. It also was the second most played song in Europe during that month.
"The Wandering Soul (Love is the Answer)" will be utilized to raise funds for Forest Way Productions, a 501c3 charity dedicated to providing retreat opportunities conducive to spiritual growth. It also promotes creative projects designed to support a unified vision of spirituality in the world.
"The first time I heard 'The Wandering Soul (Love is the Answer),' I broke down and cried for a very long time," said Hunt, who resides in Southern California. "I knew I had to record it and felt certain it was meant for something much greater than I could even fathom.
"I believe John (Denver) would be very pleased at how it is going to be used to further the mission of Forest Way Productions and also promote peace and unity among mankind. Universal harmony seemed to be what he was all about."
"The Wandering Soul (Love is the Answer)" can be purchased and downloaded at iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and www.luannehunt.com
