About “The Point of Arrival”
This is an album about beginnings and endings, love and grief, being in process, miracles, possibility and living in the kind of times that ask us to be better people than we ever thought we would need to be.
“Even in the darkest places, we are met by unexpected light, grace and help, honorable companions, and occasionally a miracle” – Carrie Newcomer
“Newcomer’s lyrics, music, and voice embody the paradox I need to stay the course: they are deeply rooted in the earthiness of life, and yet transcendent and transparent in a way that fills me with light. This is music to put ground under your feet and lift under your wings, a precious gift from one well-lived life to others.” Parker J. Palmer (author of On the Brink of Everything and Let Your Life Speak)
“The Point of Arrival will open your heart, affirming the truth that the enduring depth of where we are is where we are going.”
Mark Nepo, (author of The Book of Awakening)
“Point of Arrival is as close to a perfect collection of songs as one gets in this life, with songs that move from insightful to meditative to joyful to comforting to humorous to breathtaking.”
Brian McClaren (Author, Activist)
“These wondrous songs will place you back, more intact, inside your own body and mind.”
Naomi Shihab Nye, (Poet and Author of The Words Under the Words & Honeybee)
“Impossible, Until It’s Not”
Second Song and Video is Up Now!

Seeking that special acoustic guitarist and vocalist
from Dianne Crystal (2019-Jan-19)
We’ve got 2 of the 3. Seeking that special acoustic guitarist and vocalist to complete the acoustic rock trio. Acoustics, congas and vocals. The more harmonies, jamming and collaboration the better. I sing lead, harmonies and play acoustic guitar. I have a full time job and a family so I am only interested in playing out a couple times a month. Join me and let’s have fun creating this unique sound and sharing with others. Please check out my profile at https://www.bandmix.com/d-crystal/ . If interested, please provide contact info and let’s chat. Thx.

“An album is a grateful offering of what life brings and the heart creates. This is an album about the overlapping nature endings and beginnings, being in process, grief and hope as an active intention, living in the kind of troubled times that ask us to be better people than we ever thought we’d need to be.
“I’ll be talking a bit about the new release in the next couple of months, and letting people know about when it’s out int the world and available. I hope you’ll stay tuned for more information about the album, the songs and when its available to the public.
