Discography rename

Posted on Updated on

My discography rename, particularly for the artwork, has been completed to change all my albums away from my pen name (NuwrayN) to my artist name, J. Park. It’s in distribution right now, and should become generally available inside a month.

You can listen to my entire discography here in the meantime.

On a more serious note

Posted on

Just read about the ridiculously horrible evil regarding the deaths of all those children in Connecticut.

No child, whether it be in Iraq, Australia, Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, the United States, or ANYWHERE deserves to get hurt and/or die like those children have. All too often it is the innocent that suffer, needlessly. And we all need to do something about it as a society, to prevent such evil from constantly perpetrating itself, instead of just sitting back and letting it go. There’s nothing political when the innocent die, and especially at the magnitude that it’s happening nowadays.

I dedicate this song, Unanswered Letters, to all who were lost, their families, and those who suffer needlessly. This is the full song, and buying is not necessary.

New song from upcoming album

Posted on Updated on

Here is one of the bonus tracks from my upcoming album. The name of the song is This Mystery.

This song features a coalescence of two prominent Oriental instruments, the Koto and the Shamisen. I tried to capture a mysterious atmosphere and infuse it with violin/orchestral tracks, and the result was this song. I think it is a very good effort, and I certainly hope you will be pleased with it. Enjoy…

I’m still here. For the long haul.

I admit it’s been a while since I updated the site. Sometimes life becomes convoluted and takes up so much of our time that we forget the important things. I haven’t forgotten.

The music never stopped. As a matter of fact, I’ve since finished another entire album and am again halfway through a new one.

If one thing is constant, it is the pain that all of us feel. It is part of who we are, why we do what we do. It helps to drive us. The problem is that a lot of us do not know how to control it and it drives us to do all the wrong things. And hurt each other in the process.

I wish I could stand here and tell you life is peachy. It’s not. Everyone is searching for that inner (and outer) peace, but it is ever elusive. We are all just pulling shades over our eyes to temporarily mask the sadness. It doesn’t work. You need an outlet.

And this is the reason for my music. It’ll continue.

I’m in the process of moving back to this site, as it’s improved, and quite frankly is a better platform for publicizing my music. I will continue to release more information on the new album, which will be coming out in a month or two.

Thanks for all your support and kind words. I will reward you in the best way, and with the best music.

New sections, new track

Posted on Updated on

I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for visiting my new site. There are a few new sections that are going to go up in a few days, namely, where to buy, and what people are saying about the music. I think it’s important for everyone to know the latter, as I’m not the only one to have looked up an artist and read what people’s opinions were about the music BEFORE actually taking a listen.

In a few days, I will be releasing the following 2 things:

1. A new bonus track from the new album One And Only, and
2. The official tracklisting for the new album.

If you want to be the first to hear the new bonus track, sign up for the fanlisting, at http://www.nuwrayn.com, and I’ll send you a quick note when it becomes available!!!

Stay tuned!

New website finally up…check it out!

So how do you guys like the new site? It was hard to put together, especially since I have so limited resources (shhh, don’t tell anyone!). It’s quite hard to be a one man show, especially when you want to just make music. I now know why music artists need management.

At any rate, since you read the News section and there is a huge splash intro as well as on the front page, the album is named One And Only. It has a much more modern, punchier edge to it. I wanted to make this album reflective of current genres of material out there while maintaining the classical touch. I like this effort. It’s very diverse, and I hope you find the same about it.

At any rate, please, if you have ANY difficulties with the site, please let me know, so that I can fix it before the album launch. In the meantime, enjoy the new site, and please stay tuned for the new album, which will be hitting very soon!
