David Arkenstone

California's David Arkenstone blends global, cinematic, and rock elements into his new age sonic tapestries. A music lover since the age of ten, when he moved to California from Chicago, Arkenstone has immersed himself in all kinds of music, and played keyboard and guitar in numerous bands from his youth.

It was when he discovered the lush arrangements and exotic approach of Kitaro that Arkenstone ventured into new age music. The increasing synergy between computer technology and musical instruments also inspired him; most of his works were created partly or entirely on his Macintosh along with synthesizers and guitars. This blend of electro-acoustic textures is showcased on albums like 1998's Book of Days, and works from his other project, Troika. Arkenstone returned in mid-2000 with Caravan of Light. Frontier followed a year later. In 2002, Arkenstone had two Grammy nominations and several Billboard new age smash hits under his belt. The legacy continued with the releases of Sketches From An American Journey in June 2002 and Atlantis in September 2004. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Wow!! Call Mr crazy, call me eccentric, call me a freak-- but I love his voice!!

Guys, he legally changed his name to Arkenstone. His (former?) wife Diane took it on. I don't think she changed it.
I think the Arkenstone was given it's name to remember him and the year he died

3 rings for the elves 7 for the dwarves 9 for the mortal men 1 ring to rule them all

Tolkien died in 1973. Think about those numbers backwards and lotr. It's awesome

Just a general FYI, he was born after the Hobbit was published, so he was not the inspiration (born 1952, Hobbit published 1937)

You have a cool last name.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary... Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works!
I got into new age music in the mid 80s and he was in the mix. Great music.
Loving every note! Thanks!

I've been listening to Arkenstone since 1986 and I'm surprised there are people are just discovering him. His music has always been a great pleasure and an enjoyment.
That's jazz™™™™

I needed this music. David, you have a brand new fan. Don't stop now.
Awesome tune David, just finished an impromptu dance on my porch when -self-eviden t indicator of great music
Fist time hearing this. Works for me.
First time ever listening to him. His music is very mello.
I have liked this artist for many years, and JUST learned today he composed some music for my favorite Game that I have been playing for 10 years..World of Warcraft.
I was introduced to him because of a song he did involving the Hobbit, which is a story centered around a legendary jewel called the Arkenstone, and look at this guys last name!

So jealous of his last name.
Decidedly one of my favorite artists. So beautiful and relaxing. It helps with every day life without putting me to sleep.
His music helps me cope when I am down and out.
Your last name is AWESOME! And so is your music!
Music to relax by.

This is one of the few musicians whose CDs I'll buy without listening to them first. Thanks, David, for being a steady, inspirationa l musical companion in my life for years.
Far out beat, groovy & hypnotic.
