Destiny Rambo McGuire Debuts
First Full-Length Recording Project
When asked about her first full-length recording project, Destiny says, “I envision Journal of a Songstress as a warm handshake, a look in the eyes, a smile with a ‘Hi, I’m Destiny.’ This is who I am: my story, the journal of my life.” She lets us sneak over her shoulder and peer into the otherworld-wonder while bravely confessing the fragile skeletons of secrets. It’s about as honest as it gets.
Journal of a Songstress has been two years in the recording but a lifetime in the making. Destiny began practicing the crafting of story when she was two and collecting words and phrases like a miser hoarding scribbled, dog-eared journals. When she’s composing on the piano, her fingers tend to travel down familiar classical paths but stretch to pluck a sprig of rare foliage along the way. Her poetic and melodic sense is both fresh and ancient.
The long awaited solo début features nine original songs and six carefully chosen gems that pay homage to her musical heritage. “I Just Came To Talk With You, Lord” written by her legendary grandmother the late Dottie Rambo; “He Gave Me Music” and “At Last I Found Love” by her mother Reba Rambo-McGuire; “God, I Need Someone to Talk To” by her father Dony McGuire; and “He Will Provide” by her grandfather Cornelius “Mac” McGuire and Dony. “To All the Poets I Have Known” features the lyrics of Gloria Gaither and musical genius of Dony.
The roster of amazingly talented singers, musicians and creative technicians who caught sight of Destiny’s vision is staggering. She carries a presence that makes other artists eager to collaborate in releasing the mystery.
Journal of a Songstress is a journey best experienced sequentially by candlelight. It will take you by the heart and woo you to infinite summits and fathomless seas. Maybe that’s what butterfly mermaids are destined to do.
