Best Meditation, Best World Fusion, Best New Age Album!
Multi-talented musician, composer & producer Valerie Romanoff won multiple awards from COVR, which recognizes the best in Mind, Body, Spirit products and music.
SEDONA, AZ, USA, July 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A first-time entrant to the Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) awards, Valerie Romanoff’s double album Healing Music Volume 2 won two of the top retail-based honors. Valrock Music announced the wins — GOLD for Best Meditation Music and SILVER for Best World Album — just a month after the album was awarded Best World Fusion Album at the broadcaster-chosen Zone Music Awards in New Orleans (press release below).
“I am just beyond humbled and thrilled about winning two COVR awards from the Coalition of Visionary Resources,” Romanoff shared. “It has been my life’s work to use music along with uplifting tools and spiritual practices to share positive vibrations, peace and love. My full-spectrum catalogue STILL, CHILL, THRILL pairs music with our different states being. STILL: music for meditation and inner peace, CHILL- music to activate prayers and intentions, THRILL: uptempo music for celebrating life.”
The COVR awards are the only awards of their kind in the industry. The Coalition of Visionary Resources is a not-for-profit trade organization dedicated to supporting independent retailers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and publishers of visionary books, music, and merchandise, supporting and embracing a spiritual world view characterized by global concern, social conscience, peaceful coexistence, and ecological sustainability. This world view includes the various forms of personal freedoms and human rights, including civil rights, peace, social justice, and equal rights for women. At a more personal level, COVR supports companies that emphasize creativity and personal growth, and generally hold in high regard the concepts of integrity, altruism, self-actualization, optimism, spirituality, authenticity, holism, and direct personal experience.
Music has the power to heal, transform, evoke emotion, underscore and enhance our lives. By consciously aligning with elements of music, we can affect deep changes in our world.”— Valerie Romanoff
COVR president Karen Stuth noted, “This year’s awards program also included new opportunities for entries in a number of emerging categories. The entries considered this year well represent the growth and maturing of the mind body spirit industry.” Stuth also observed that distributors and retailers both inside of and outside of this niche industry should take note of the wonderful selection of entries and winners with an eye toward including these books in their own store inventories or catalogues.
Fans say that more than a performance, Romanoff’s music can be a tool for personal exploration on a path to higher wisdom. The artist is hopeful that the awards’ recognition will encourage more people to seek out her original “Healing Music” series to use for meditation and relaxation at home, the workplace or in their yoga studios, and to inquire about the high-vibe, custom musical experiences she produces for private events, concerts, festivals and conferences.
The recent bevvy of awards and nominations for Healing Music Volume 2 are an ideal way to announce the debut of Romanoff’s new band, SPIRIT JAM, and her experiential concert series, GROOVE INTO BLISS: MUSICAL MEDITATION & MORE. Romanoff is an electric guitar player, composer, writer and life-long entertainer who splits her time between New York and Sedona, AZ. She founded and continues to perform with the renowned high-end (and high-energy) event band called The Starlight Orchestra. By contrast, her GROOVE INTO BLISS concerts share Romanoff’s more eclectic, new age world fusion music as a focal point to connect with the present moment, varying the vibes to inspire different states of being. Based on the belief that listening to music changes our mood as our energy naturally calibrates to our environment, Romanoff performs musical compositions with positive vibrations, geared toward deepening our inner experiences..
“Music has the power to heal, transform, evoke emotion, underscore and enhance our lives. By consciously aligning with elements of music, we can affect deep changes in our world,” she says.
Romanoff is also an eloquent writer and speaker on music, mindfulness and spirituality. Her latest album, The Best of Healing Music, has just been released and is available from CD Baby and Bandcamp, as listed below.
SEDONA, ARIZONA, USA, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Healing Music Volume 2 entered the Zone Music Reporter (ZMR) Global Airplay Chart last year at #4, qualifying for the organization’s Best World Album award, leading to an invitation to the annual Zone Music Awards show. Valerie Romanoff — the album’s producer-composer and multi-instrumentalist — made a cameo appearance with Best Vocal Album nominee, Sangeeta Kaur, and her band at the broadcaster-voted awards show on Saturday, May 18th at The House of Blues New Orleans, where she also accepted the prize for Best World Album.
“Heart-centered gatherings like this help activate waves of positive energy to uplift ourselves and our world. My collection of original music includes many genres,” she explains. “I compose and perform funky dance tunes (THRILL) with a positive message, as well as meditation music for deep relaxation and inner journey (STILL). And in between is (CHILL) groovy music for feeling good and finding a flow.”
Romanoff is a composer, writer and life-long entertainer who splits her time between New York and Sedona, AZ, playing live music as often as possible. She is also nominated by the Independent Music Awards for Best New Age Album, and Valerie is slated to attend the event on June 21-22nd in NYC; tickets are available to the public. The annual IMA ceremony and Independent Music Party industry event celebrates the year’s best artists and their fans with showcases, presentations, parties and awards in thirty-six genres of music, from A Capella to World Traditional, and more than 100 Album, EP, Song, Video, Producer, Photography and Design categories.
Two additional organizations have found the album worthy of nominations, including the COVR Awards and Peace Song Awards. She is nominated as a finalist for “Best Spoken Word” in the 2018 Peace Song Awards for “Om Shanti Shalom” a collaboration featuring 100-year old yogi Tao Porchon-Lynch. And, most recently, the retail-based Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) Awards announced that Healing Music Volume 2 is nominated in their Meditation Music and World Fusion Music categories. The COVR embraces a spiritual world view characterized by global concern, social conscience, peaceful coexistence, and ecological sustainability.
