THECOLOSSALJOYPROJECT ... is the latest recording by Lisa Clark Augis.
"I wanted to create a recording filled with positive music. No "broken heart" songs, no "I can't live without whoever" songs, no "life stinks" songs, just powerfully happy songs! We encourage children to be more upbeat, yet the example we set with the music we listen to and the emotions associated with it can often be the opposite. We have a serious deficiency of "happy"! I believe that it is up to us as individuals to embrace the joy that we are all capable of experiencing and sharing. That is what this project is all about! I have experienced first hand what the power of positivity through music can do. I definitely felt it while creating music with the wonderful group of people involved in this recording. These are some very accomplished musicians and singers and each and every one of them has a colossal heart! This recording features performances with many talented musicians, from great local Columbus based artists like vocalist Kay Harris (Sirens) and Kerry Henderson (The Floorwalkers/Nick and the Believers) to international touring artists like Dwight Adams (trumpeter with Stevie Wonder). There is a wonderful feeling of positivity that we share when we are creating music together! I really wanted to capture that energy and pass it along! This project contains elements of four areas of study I am very passionate about: positive psychology, music therapy, laughter yoga, and jazz."
