about

“Simply stunning. Precise and soulful guitar playing accompanies nine immaculately crafted songs. A captivating listening experience from a true musical genius.” AP

"Fantastic Album – What a great album, great guitar work! The album is uplifting, the lyrics meaningful and thought provoking. I find myself playing this album over and over because it leaves me full of energy." W

“Gentle, melodic songs and soaring guitar solos: it’s all in one" VP

"Yes! Music the way they used to make it. Soaring guitars, intricate melodies, meaningful lyrics; have they all gone into hibernation? Died an untimely death? One might be tempted to think so. Fortunately, with ‘reflector’, Tony Lowe’s latest offering, they gloriously resurface in nothing less than a miniature musical tour de force." BT

“Excellent, melodic, guitar-driven pop music. Reflector is a delightful new album in the tradition of thought-provoking, musically-rich pop groups such as The Waterboys and World Party, and reaching back to psychedelic bands such as Pink Floyd and King Crimson." PH

“Tony Lowe’s newest CD, Reflector, is one of those rare gems that grabs you from the first listen and doesn’t let you go. It is a collection of lush, rich melodies that evoke the heyday of great 70s prog rock in its attention to detail and musicianship, and yet remains modern and fresh. The lyrics are positive and manage to fill the listener with optimism and hope for the future." AMK

“Enchanting – ‘reflector’, the latest gem from Tony Lowe, is such a beautiful album. His unique voice and virtuoso guitar skills are perfect for the thought-provoking, meaningful lyrics. This is spine-tingling music that you’ll want to listen to over and over again; music to be uplifted and inspired by.” LTD

Track Name: Reasons
I am lost within your forest
But I am safe
I am the tree
I am drowning in your ocean
But I have life
I am the sea
I am helpless in your dark storm
But I am still
A drop of rain
I am burning in your fire
But I am cool
I am the flame

Chorus
We don’t need another reason
For the beating of our hearts
Like the turning of the season
Give it all away
Make a new start, New start, New start

I am breathless in your cities
But I can breathe
I am the air
I am strangled by injustice
I am the truth
I am the fair

Chorus

I am blinded by your science
But I can see, I can see
I am trapped by superstition
But I am free, I am free

Chorus

Track Name: Change of Heart
Fire in my heart
Taking the strain
Mother of Anger
Is back in the reins
Driving me on
I’m fearless in fight
Taking me over
Giving me all the strength I need tonight
Just enough to ease the pain
Just enough to keep me sane
There’s got to be, There’s got to be a better way

Chorus
Feel a little, Feel a little deeper
Move a little, Move a little closer
Gotta hold on tight to every moment of your life
Change of heart, Change of heart

Fire in my head
Making me sweat
Passion and Power
Not done with me yet
Just enough to ease the pain
Just enough to keep me sane
There’s got to be, There’s got to be a better way


Chorus
Feel a little, Feel a little deeper (deep within your heart)
Move a little, Move a little closer (closer to your heart)
Gotta hold on tight to every moment of your life
Change of heart, Change of heart

Right on the edge
Keep losing my cool
I’ve got to hold on to love cos
That’s not me, That’s not me
I got to...

Chorus
Feel a little, Feel a little deeper (deep within your heart)
Move a little, Move a little closer (closer to your heart)
Just give a little more and take a little less (deep within your heart)
And maybe we can shine a little brighter
Feel a little, Feel a little deeper (deep within your heart)
Move a little, Move a little closer (closer to your heart)

Track Name: Fly with Angels
Hey you, Don’t you worry
It’s a better day tomorrow
Far away from pain and sorrow
I will carry you
So hold on, there’s no hurry
The world can wait until you’re ready
Till you’re calm and feeling steady
Cos there’s so much we have to do
Holding on to trust is hard I know
But I love with all my heart you know

Chorus
Really no need to punch the sky
As glory draws us pulls us up
To fly with Angels

And in time
You will feel
All the love you left behind you
Will come rising on the tide
Of a universal wave
So shine precious one
As you dance across the stars
You are perfect as you are
Just remember that
Holding on to hope is hard I know
But I love with all my heart you know

Chorus
Really no need to punch the sky
As glory draws us pulls us up
To fly with Angels

Really no need to reason why
The stars are shining in your eyes
To fly with Angels

Holding on to trust is hard I know
But I love you with all my heart you know

Chorus
Really no need to punch the sky
As glory draws us pulls us up
To fly with Angels

Really no need to reason why
The stars are shining in your eyes
To fly with Angels

Really no need to punch the sky
As glory draws us pulls us up
To fly with Angels

Track Name: The Grand Illusion
wake in the dark, There’s nothing to see
No one to talk to when they’re looking at me
Till the night is over and the light creeps through
They promised me they’d never do this to you
I know you said you saw it all
But it’s much too late to hear your call
Just like a crazy dream to me

Chorus
Here come the wave
The grand illusion
Breaking the walls down
And cracking the shell
From cradle to grave
The grand illusion
Taking us all down
The road to hell

Asleep in the light
The colours so clean
There’s nothing to cling to when they’re talking to me
Till the dream is over and the light shines through
They promised me they’d never do this to you
I know you said you saw it all
But it’s much too late to hear your call
Just like a crazy dream to me


Chorus
Here come the wave
The grand illusion
Breaking the walls down
And cracking the shell
From cradle to grave
The grand illusion
Taking us all down
The road to hell

But I am free tonight
And I can see tonight
That you’re a part of me
And I’m a part of you
Life is a mystery
In higher harmony
Love can bring you back
Love can bring you back

Here come the wave
A love revolution
Breaking the walls down
And cracking the shell
Return of the brave
A new resolution
Bringing us all back to break the spell

Track Name: Seven Billion Tiny Sparks
The world is changing
The world is changing, so fast
Summer’s leaving
Winter’s coming in so fast

Chorus
Seven billion tiny sparks
Seven billion tiny sparks
Streaming out into the sky
Watching us as we go by, Alone
Sleeping hearts and resting minds
Floating right across the lines
Holding to each other
Holding to each other, Magnetised

My heart is beating
My heart is beating, so fast
The universal, shining example at last

Chorus
Seven billion tiny sparks
Seven billion tiny sparks
Streaming out into the sky
Watching us as we go by, Alone
Sleeping hearts and resting minds
Floating right across the lines
Holding to each other
Holding to each other, Magnetised

Track Name: Meet me on the Hillside
There was a time
When friends of mine
Thought the world could be saved
Felt the higher wave
A feeling of hope
Was in the air
A feeling that everything was everyone’s to share
Bright light flooding my horizon
To bring the sunshine down again

Chorus
So meet me on the hillside
Where the bands are playing songs of love and peace
And we shall be released
We can dance and sing around the fire
Until the early hours are come again
And we can be one again
We can be one again, We can be one again

Give me something to believe in
Give me something I can feel
You say there’s nothing, nothing left to believe in
To bring the sunshine down again

Chorus
Meet me on the hillside
Where the bands are playing songs of love and peace
And we shall be released
We can dance and sing around the fire
Until the early hours are come again
And we can be one again
We can be one again, We can be one again

Chorus
So meet me on the hillside
Where the bands are playing songs of love and peace
And we shall be released
We can dance and sing around the fires
Until the early hours are come again
And we can be one again
We can be one again, We can be one again

Track Name: Mirror to Mirror
With one heart, with one breath we fly
With one thought our minds span the sky
To touch a truth
Embrace a star
Knowing that’s what we really are

As a seed holds its soul deep within
Enfolded, unfolding, begin
To raise our heads
To greet the sun
And to feel how we are one

Chorus
The soft velvet sky reflects
In your eyes
Mirror to mirror we shine
Like the sun
Shine like the sun

Just how deep is the mystery of you?
We dive for the pearls of our truth
The harmony
The symphony
Of a life touching other life



Chorus
The soft velvet sky reflects
In your eyes
Mirror to mirror we shine
Like the sun
Shine like the sun

The drumming heart
The singing flames
Are just love
By other names

Chorus
The soft velvet sky reflects
In your eyes
Mirror to mirror we shine
Like the sun
Shine like the sun (the sun)
Shine like the sun (the sun)
Shine like the sun (the sun)

Track Name: Faster than Light
Faster than light
Into the darkest night
Somebody out there calls my name
Into the air
Flying twice around the sun
Somebody out there
Calls my soul

Chorus
I never realised the light could burn so bright
I never realised my heart could feel so light
And I know, It’s gonna last forever
So carry me home
To where I belong
Where I belong

Beautiful light
Carry me home tonight
Somebody out there is waiting

Chorus
I never realised the light could shine so bright
I never realised my heart could feel so light
And I know, It’s gonna last forever
So carry me home
To where I belong

Let the sunshine, sun shine, Let the sunshine, Let the sunshine, sun shine, Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine, sun shine, Let the sunshine, Let the sunshine, sun shine, Let the sunshine
