Fred Hostetler, from Blue By Nature has released a new video, ‘Life is Just Walk in the Rain’, released on November 4th is a enticingly magical track from his new album titled Heart Radio release on the Mukthiland Records label.
Recorded, filmed, and produced by Fred Hostetler in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, at Mukthi Nilayam.
The track is upbeat, uplifting and introspective, allowing the artist to impart wisdom in simple verse where the message is a clear and substantial “open letter” from a caring heart.
With this, Fred Hostetler has created a song defies categories, “I like to think of it as a video postcard to my friends who look at life from both an inner and outer perspective. It has Eastern influences both visually and musically. I will stop there and let the viewer figure out the rest, but it does say, beware of alligators and crocodiles!”
‘Life is Just Walk in the Rain’, inspired by a story told to the artist by Sri Vasantha Sai, is a tale, taken from a Hindu epic, tells how Kunti Devi was granted a boon which enabled her to marry the Sun God. One can imagine where things went from there. Though life got extremely difficult, yet she found a reason to be grateful even in troubled times. She would pray, ‘Lord send me more troubles so I will never forget you. Otherwise, how can I cope?’.
The poet, Kahlil Gibran might add:
“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.” . in this, Fred Hostetler weaves a musical masterpiece, that takes the listener on a spiritual journey.
