David Hickey

December 6, 1967

Based in Ancaster, Ontario, Crystal Journey and David Hickey performs with Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, 10-15 of them. Each produces a pure note or tone, the purest there is. They are accompanied by 2 Persian Santoor's and 8-12 Paiste Planet, Symphonic and Sound Creation Gongs. Every Gong features a strong fundamental note tuned to represent a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Sun, the Earth, the Moon and the other planets. It's like having a full orchestra.

Crystal Journey has been touring Canada and the US coast to coast for the past 15 years and has performed over 1100 shows. Crystal Journey has also released 9 CDs to date. I have played the Bowls and Gongs accompanied by various musicians as well as with the Winnipeg Chamber Orchestra in June of 2006.

As 2017 unfolds, I am looking forward to taking my music to ever increasing numbers, creating conscious awareness across Canada and the Globe with a message of unity and peace.

The intent of the performance is to create soothing, meditative and healing music. Each one of my performances is completely improvised, and unique. The music attracts a full range of listeners. My concerts are in two sets, each lasting about an hour in length.

My musical inspirations are, Jerry Garcia, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, George Harrison, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, and Frederick Chopin to name a few.

Mission Statement:

To create expansive and improvised music, to awaken consciousness and to provide a Cosmic Musical Journey into the Unknown.
