Summer Harmony

In the summer of 2006,
a little trio by the name of
Moonlight Garden,
made its debut 
at one of the island's 
most luxurious hotels.

Creta Maris Beach Resort, 
a five star hotel 
in the harbour town 
of Hersonissos, Crete,
was the breathtaking venue
for a much anticipated,
three month engagement.

The bright and beautiful oasis above
is the Romantica Bar Terrace, 
where Anna Lisowski, Nicholas Tsachakis and I, 
took to the stage!

The romantic ambience 
of the Cochlias Restaurant
provided the perfect setting 
for recording our repertoire of songs, 
one of which, you can listen to below.

Been thinking about
 that sweet summer,
 when singing
 in front of a live audience,
made my blood flow,
and my heart skip -

as I soared 
notes of

Thanks for visiting!
