Who are we Skyward CD recording, Airlie Scott & Simon Clark

We are singer and lyricist, Airlie Scott and pianist and composer Simon Clark and our debut solo album of inspirational songs is entitled “Skyward”.

We loved working together on this and hope that you too will benefit from the joy of this collaboration! Particularly at this time of global challenge, we trust that you find the album comforting, healing and uplifting.

Why Skyward?

Notes on Skyward

We love the metaphor of a bird taking skyward flight.

The uplift. The joy. The naturalness. The power and the beauty.

The ability to soar above the earth with strength, perfect balance, and return for a safe landing.

Prayer can be seen as skyward flight, heavenly thinking that lifts you up and out of difficulty, fear or limitation to soar in divine reflection- free, rested, strong.

The bird breaking out of the egg and preening its wings for skyward flight* is the most natural thing. Skyward celebrates this ability to see ourselves as limitless being winged by divine reflection. This understanding brings healing. 

Skyward seemed the perfect title for this collection of songs celebrating uplifted thought, prayerful being, healing melodies and lyrics.

The Album Skyward CD recording, Airlie Scott & Simon Clark

Skyward includes some fresh recordings of well-loved songs as well as some newly recorded compositions by Simon Clark and a debut song ‘Skyward” co-written by Simon and Airlie for this album.

An album of inspirational songs for everyday!

The album includes some favourite solos such as “On Eagle’s Wings” by Michael Joncas, “The Lord bless you and Keep You” by John Rutter, “Consecration” by John Ness Beck, ‘Be not afraid” by Craig Courtney as well as a beautiful setting of “The Lord’s is my Shepherd” by Simon himself.

We have kept the arrangements simple yet powerful- piano and voice with the occasional cello part counterpointing and weaving in and out of the music, and enhancing the message.

We hope you will find the album inspirational, healing, uplifting and engaging…songs not out of place if heard in church but also something with a contemporary feel and a joy to listen to by oneself.

Thanks to our angels for helping us to take flight!

We’re so grateful to all our angels who helped us make this album. If you would like to see how they did so, check out this link to a video about the project on our indiegogo page.

*“Fixing your gaze on the realities supernal, you will rise to the spiritual consciousness of being, even as the bird which has burst from the egg and preens its wings for a skyward flight.” Mary Baker Eddy 

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40: 31
