Title track “Journey Around The Sun” is an inspirational melody with smooth guitar features and gentle synthesizers undertones. This leads into “Apocalypse,” with rhythmic percussions and bold horns overlaid with delicate flute and piccolo. “The Lost City of Maya” is a mysterious track that opens with precise violin before merging with percussion and synth to give listeners an exotic experience.

The musical abilities of Wren and Rolls are exceptional, and it is no wonder that the album has reached the number spot on the New Age Music Chart. As a whole, Journey Around The Sun is a relaxing new age album that complements moments of reflection or meditative practices.

Wren has always been fascinated with the advanced Mayan civilization, which sparked the idea for this album. Teaming up with Ralls, the two have been able to express the Mayan ideas of exploration and discovery using a talented orchestral team. Wren and Ralls have previously worked together on One Day In A Life (CDBY).

Journey Around The Sun is a complex and instrumentally diverse album with global sounding compositions. By blending such instruments as whistles, violins, guitars, trumpets, and more, listeners are treated to a fusion of Celtic, Middle Easter, Spanish, and Western music.
