If Only Love
If Only Love, is a musical journey around the world, celebrating various cultures through their traditional instruments and musical styles. Songs feature; Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Modern Classical Guitar, Classical Archtop Guitar, Ronroco, Harp Guitar, and Baritone Ukulele. We live in a time of heightened attention and appreciation of cultures around the world and in the United States. If Only Love is a musical expression of that appreciation. His latest album follows the personal philosophy he shared in his recent TEDx Talk, The Round Table of Song.
This collection of original compositions is deeply personal to Feriante. Since the release of his 14th album, Terra de Eros in 2016, he has experienced some major, and deeply emotional, life changes. The songs come from a place of love, loss, the life transitions of losing both parents, a major life move, and navigating life as a 40-year performing veteran artist dealing with changes in the world and in the music industry. The music is cathartic, yet also inspirational in its study of hope for the future and the beauty of cultural and musical diversity.
