Like a River to the Sea, 2015

This album is dedicated with gratitude to my spiritual grandfather,
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada for your everlasting gifts
to Yamuna and Dinatarine devis, for unlocking the prayers of the great acaryas
to my beloved parents, who filled my life with music and devotional service,
and to the symphony of gurus and teachers I have learnt from along the way

Reviews

“Surpasses all expectations…the depth and sensitivity of the vocals, the quality of the accompaniment and variety in arrangements have a maturity rarely seen for a first work.” – Sanjeevini Dutta, Pulse Magazine

“It is such an inspiring devotional offering. It is fresh and innovative and yet it feels somehow classic. It can be listened to again and again.” – Bada Haridas, kirtaniya

“Everything in this new CD is wonderful; the singing, the harmonies, the compositions, the arrangements … everything.” – His Holiness Indradyumna Swami, guru, teacher and bhakti yoga practitioner

“I had to wipe the tears of joy from my keyboard to avoid electrocution… Everything about the album is first class. It has been well-conceived, it is full of the holy names, uncompromisingly and intelligently presented with superb musical skill. It is undoubtedly the best album I have heard for many years.” – Kurma Dasa – author, award winning chef, bhakti yogi

“When Jahnavi sings, her deep loving heart and enchanting musical gifts, reveals the beauty of each of our souls. Like a River To The Sea- is truly flow of grace. Let us submerge ourselves and be transformed.” — Radhanath Swami

“Enchanting. I have hardly stopped listening to these songs since I downloaded them a week ago. Go on give it a try!” – Amazon.com customer

“The depth of feeling, sincerity and love that come through cannot be doubted…and it is in this that the album succeeds.” —Amardeep Dhillon, Songlines Magazine

“The number 1 conscious music artist for 2015. Pure, prayerful melodies emanate from Krishna devotee Jahnavi Harrison’s lips on every track of Like A River To The Sea. There’s no doubt about it: This woman is singing to God. A rich mix of instruments (piano, bansuri flute, cello, violin), combined with a heavenly chorus, makes this call-and-response kirtan album soar.” — Tori Rose, Soul Traveller/Sage Magazine
