Composing, Recording, and Performance
J S Kingfisher – Jeff – is a songwriter and recording artist, arranger and producer, composer for film and orchestra, keyboardist, harpejjist, vocalist, and therapeutic musician. 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.)
Currently underway for Jeff are three solo projects, with a single from one or another being released every full moon: an art/pop project called Songs for the New World; a contemplative/ambient project called Las Californias; and a collection of music for spiritual community called Agape Mousike. Jeff is also finishing production on Serbian singer Dalibor Banović's new album, and plays and cowrites with the eclectic pop rock project Alphanaut.
Jeff is the creator of Muzoracle: The Tarot of Music, a counseling tool that engages the imagination and intuition through music, and Swenakailo, the therapeutic music bath experience that works in tandem with it. He is the creator as well of Muzundrum, a musician's game of chance and skill, and the Musician's Dice, a composing, improvising, and educational tool.
Therapeutic Music and Music-Based Counseling
Jeff offers Muzoracle castings—music-based, guided self-counseling sessions—and Swenakailo, the therapeutic music bath experience that works in tandem with them— at his healing space in Palm Desert, The Seventh Harmonic. Muzoracle castings are insightful, creative, and empowering; Swenakailo, which employs custom-tuned crystal bowls and bells, electronics, Jeff’s voice, chanting, and Reiki energy, is deeply relaxing, balancing, and grounding, and can set the stage for self-healing. Both the Muzoracle and Swenakailo are of Jeff's invention.
Muzoracle castings and Swenakailo are available by appointment.
