Music for Planetary Healing


JOHN SHELDON DISCOGRAPHY

40 YEARS OF ALBUMS 1978 - 2018

Four decades of musical evolution from folk to rock to meditative and trance-like improvisational musical journeys.

All songs and music written by John Sheldon.

PLANET SONG (2017)

“To anchor the vibration of love in our earth.” This album is all one song, an improvisation that emerged in one sitting, on 12-string guitar. Using loops and a few extra parts, I left it pretty much as it came out, unrehearsed, in one take.

EARTHMAN (2015)

Songs from every period of my songwriting life. “Earthman” is one of the first songs I wrote that seemed to come out of nowhere, in 1977. 40 years later, it is recorded! Includes "September Grass", my song that appeared on JAMES TAYLOR’s platinum OCTOBER ROAD album.

A WAY THROUGH (2011)

A cycle of music I wrote to accompany Donna Jenson’s audio play, “What She Knows”, a first person account of finding joy after surviving sexual abuse. The music was written to help heal from the trauma, and includes the song, “It Wasn’t Your Fault.”

The second children’s album. The older I get, the more I like this.

ELEMENTS (2005)

Instrumental music with a focus on catchy melodies and strong grooves.

NO BRAKES (2004)

After slowing down, I guess I had to speed up again. A studio album, a great band.

More stripped down rootsy rock and roll.

SLOW DOWN (2002)

A first foray into healing music. Meditative instrumentals to relax and soothe.

SOMETIMES YOU GET LUCKY (2002)

A collection of my songs, including the original versions of “September Grass” and “Bittersweet,”

both recorded and released by JAMES TAYLOR.

PLAY OUT (1998)

The third and final BLUE STREAK album, recorded live, this time in a wild party, held in a garage.

BONEYARD (1994)

The second BLUE STREAK album, with a cameo appearance from JAMES TAYLOR.

BLUE STREAK (1992)

The first of three albums with my band, BLUE STREAK.

Also recorded in a barn, something I obviously had a thing for.

DO NOT DROP (1989)

Released in cassette form in 1989, a collection of quirky instrumentals.

POSSUM IN THE KITCHEN (1978)

Recorded in a barn in, these songs seemed to be good for children, so a children’s album was the result.
