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

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

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

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'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.

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!
