Composing, Recording, and Performance
J S Kingfisher – Jeff – is a songwriter and recording artist, arranger and producer, composer for film and orchestra, instrumentalist, vocalist, and audio engineer. He is the composer, arranger, and producer of From the Moon to the Earth, a 21-piece song cycle and 2-disc set featuring 26 of LA's top vocalists and session players (2016); Vesica Piscis (1998); and Floating Upstream (1993.) He has countless credits on a wide range of projects, from rock to ambient and jazz to children’s music. As an instrumentalist, he specializes on keyboards, harpejji, and the Haken Continuum.
Jeff’s music covers a broad range of styles, and his new work is often released as singles in open ended projects: a contemplative/ambient collection called Las Californias is underway, as is a collection of music for spiritual community called Agape Mousike, and a collection of dark cabaret released under the moniker "The Unnamed." He releases a piece from one or another every full moon or so. Jeff is also finishing production on Serbian singer Dalibor Banović's new album, and playing keys and cowriting with the eclectic pop rock project Alphanaut.
Therapeutic Music and Tarot
Jeff offers music-based, intuitive counseling utilizing Muzoracle: The Tarot of Music. Often integrated with Muzoracle castings is Swenakailo, a uniquely compositional private music bath that employs custom crystal instruments, electronics, and Jeff's voice. Muzoracle castings are insightful, creative, and empowering; Swenakailo is deeply relaxing and grounding, and can set the stage for self-healing. Both the Muzoracle and Swenakailo are of Jeff's invention.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Swenakailo is temporarily unavailable, as are in person Muzoracle castings. Online castings, however, are very effective, and each includes a recording of the music generated during the session. Jeff works via Skype, Zoom, and Messenger—please contact him for details or to book a session.
