Don Shearer: Across the Dry Plains

The following are descriptions of some of Don Shearer's CD projects.

  • Across the Dry Plains - New Mexico Portraits in Sound - Released in 2012, Across the Dry Plains draws upon the color palette of diverse instruments to paint sound portraits celebrating the beautiful landscapes and landmarks of New Mexico. Song titles include Autumn Aspens, Cruisin' Central Avenue, Fragile Desert Life, Keys to the Spaceport, End of the Trail, and many more. The album is available for download at CD Baby.
  • A Strange Orbit - This 2011 release takes listeners on an unusual orbit around the galaxy. The song titles for these contemporary instrumental pieces closely match the music's sonic flavor. Each of these pieces has a spacious piano melody at the center, driven by insistent drums and percussion to keep the deep space ride going. The music is quiet but compelling.
