Product Description & Reviews

Album of the Year Winner! ... "The musical equivalent to Braveheart" (Billboard Magazine) Steve McDonald's celtic contemporary music soars with cinematic tales of Scottish history. Enhanced CD includes musical video. No Clan exercised such a powerful influence in early Highland history as the Macdonalds. Somerled emerged early in the 12th Century as a leader to expel the Vikings from Southwest Scotland. His marriage to a Norse princess made him a formidable adversary to the Scottish king. Somerled's grandson, Donald, became the founder of "Clan Donald" - literally the "children of Donald" - giving his descendants and followers the name Macdonald or "son of Donald". Sons of Somerled features the sonic treat of densely layered synthetic instrumentation shot through with heavy-duty vocal emoting, recalling both fellow Scotsman Dougie MacClean and the ballads of English pop star Phil Collins. Romantic in its notions of nationalism, war, and history, Sons of Somerled recalls man's love affair with the sea, the bluster and pride of the likes of Braveheart, and the all-consuming quest for the eternal soul mate. Such heady aspirations coupled with dreamy musical accompaniment speak to an audience hungry for the bittersweet passion of life writ by the unseen hand of fate. --Paige La Grone
