The Serenity Project

The Serenity Project

Employing the musical arrangement of The Serenity Prayer by Robert Kelaghan, dedicated to those of us affected by addiction whether in recovery and/or supporting someone… Catherine Scholz will be recording Robert’s arrangement of this prayer and producing the track for worldwide distribution during the summer of 2024. Estimated release date: 9/1/2024.

Half the proceeds of download sales from this song will benefit the care of Robert Kelaghan (sent directly to Punita Greenberg) and half will be donated to Refuge Recovery (a non-profit organization supporting those in recovery). Streaming revenues on all platforms will go directly to the executive producer of this project, Catherine Scholz.

Musicians personally touched by addiction and moved by the prospect of giving back to the recovery community are invited to participate in this project. The lyrics (adapted by Scholz to appeal to believers and non-believers alike):

“Please grant me the serenity to accept the things I can’t change and the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference oh, grant me serenity, grant me serenity.”

The success of this project will rely upon the sharing this project widely among the community of those who loved and appreciated Robert’s music as well as those in recovery. Questions may be directed via email to Catherine Scholz.

Review of “My Heaven” –

Hi again and thanks for submitting! “My Heaven” sounds like a heartfelt folk song that seems to delve into themes of longing, fulfillment, and the pursuit of inner peace. With only a guitar as accompaniment, the raw and unedited vocals add a sense of authenticity and vulnerability to the emotional journey portrayed in the lyrics. Opening with contemplation on the nature of heaven, questioning the dichotomy between blessings and curses, the protagonist yearns for a heaven defined by simple pleasures and the warmth of a lover’s embrace, contrasting the idealized image with the complexities of reality. Throughout the chorus, the protagonist reflects on their personal vision of heaven, characterized by an abundance of love and laughter. This sentiment is further emphasized through the imagery of falling for the moon on a cloudless night, highlighting the beauty found in moments of vulnerability and connection. As we progress in the song, the lyrics explore the elusive nature of peace and fulfillment, acknowledging the presence of unresolved dreams and unfulfilled desires. Despite feeling bound by metaphorical chains, the protagonist grapples with the notion that liberation is within reach, if only they had the courage to seize it. In the final chorus, the repetition of the phrase “My heaven” serves as a poignant reminder of the protagonist’s unwavering pursuit of happiness and contentment. Loved the soulful goodness! I will share it on my socials and playlist ASAP!

All the best and thanks! :) – Oghamyst Music

New Music Videos from The Phoenix and Production Updates

The studio session at Ancient Wave went so smoothly, which is not surprising given the level of skill and talent I had the privilege of working with! Here are some new live performances from The Phoenix Taphouse open mike on May 25, 2023. Hope to see you at my upcoming show there on June 24th! RSVP to LMK. Included in this playlist: Cactus Flower, Nothing’s Wrong and Movin On. Next step in the production process for “Let This Be Enough” will be adding in bass, dobro and piano/keys and locking in my vocals. The mix already sounds super pro, almost radio-ready. Check out the photos taken by John Taber.
