Album Notes
This is the 5th studio album from electronic new age pioneer 7and5. After years of success worldwide, critical acclaim, and commercial breakthroughs, 7and5 has set it's sights on creating yet another new chapter in the evolution of New Age Electronic music. New sounds, new ideas, and an entirely new palette.

What makes 7and5 different from typical New Age music is the dynamic power in the sound and arrangements; almost a cinematic drama in the evolving sound of each new song.

What makes 7and5 unlike typical Electronic music is the evocative feeling, passion, soul, and often heart-wrenching emotion the listener draws from the music.

Every new album is a new world; a new sonic exploration; a new place to go when you need to get away from the everyday.

Open your heart for unconstrained love
And each day will be beautiful

What first comes to mind when listening to the music of John Nixon? It is very positive and captivates you from the first chords. And it is very melodious too. Light harmonies come into your home, and you cannot tear yourself away from these aerial melodies.

The electronic music of John Nixon is very bright. It was a discovery for me when I heard his projects for the first time. This American artist is a true master of composing and performing, he has his own unique style. The music of John Nixon is very creative, it contains many interesting ideas. One important feature of his music is that his compositions are really powerful.

The album titled “Themes for a Grey Day” of John Nixon’s project “7and5” without doubt will fill an ordinary day with fresh colors and lift your spirit. Listening to this release will bring you much joy. By the way, “Themes for a Grey Day” is the fifth album of “7and5”. John won a reputation as an extraordinarily gifted artist. His “7and5” project has received much airplay and was warmly received by the audience.

Listen to the album “Themes for a Grey Day”, because this wonderful project will certainly change your day for the better. This is the splendid music for a great day!

Layer upon layer of sonic pleasure belies the title
"Themes for a Grey Day" is the perfect title for this luscious collection of instrumental tunes. The group 7and5 has assembled this album around a dreary concept, but none of the music is without color. From the majestic "Frozen" to the swelling "Passing Storms" to the pert "November," the album's music elevates the songs' titles into reality. Melodic piano opens most tunes -- notably "Nightfall" and "13 Days" - as the dynamics add layer upon layer of sonic pleasure. The urgent "No Moon, Fallen Stars" leads into the gentle lope of "The Pulse of Rain" before settling into the quiet of "Flow." However, the gorgeous rush of "Clear" is as exuberant as the sun breaking through the clouds. Feed your ears.

From New Age Music Reviews
John Nixon A.K.A. 7and5 and his new Themes For A Grey Day CD is nine tracks of new age instrumental chill. It could be a soundtrack to a film or your life, the choice is yours. The name came from the fact that all musical notes can be expressed within an octave on a piano as 7 white keys and 5 black keys. Clever yet simple and direct, I like that explanation. When you think about the title of the album it makes you wonder what kind of listening experience you are about have. The “grey” area as it is referred to in common everyday life is a neutral space, the unknown; it’s neither negative nor positive. This is music we are talking about here so where is the difference and how does the term apply? As we dive into this aural journey of sound and color “Cloudburst” invites you into a menagerie of sounds and textures. It is uplifting and refreshing as cool rain drops hitting your face on a steamy hot July afternoon. For my senses it was a pleasure and I heard and felt no “grey” areas. This is a solid opener and a terrific way to kick off the album. The next track “Nightfall” starts off slower and more introspective before reaching an apex of sound with keyboards. It is filled with anticipation and the wonder of nature’s gifts. I can see how the artist is able to implement all the instruments and sounds at his disposal to create something that matches up well with the title of the track. With instrumentals it is difficult to do that however 7and5 has his pulse on the human condition and knows how to manipulate sounds to make everything work together beautifully. I am not one that can stay focused on chill music for too long; I get bored easily and lose interest after a fashion. This did not happen to me listening to Themes For A Grey Day. The reason is that there is the right combination of new age and chill mixed together to make one complete sound that satisfies and intrigues you. “Frozen” is as prolific as the title. It is a “what you see is what you get” kind of term. Picture a river flowing underneath the frozen ice ever so slow then as you look closer it starts to move faster. That is the best way to describe how this track unfolds. I really enjoy how new age artists take the essence of nature and our surroundings and turn it into beautiful sounds that create images within the Third Eye Chakra. “Passing Storms” keeps up the momentum and spirit of this recording going. This could relate to what nature brings us or certain life situations and challenges. The passing storm eventually leaves and the sunshine comes back if we have a positive outlook on life. Instrumental music holds so much within for one individual listener to interpret and that is a blessing for those who have an open heart and mind. The instruments are healers and the one that administers the sounds is like your own personal shaman. Themes For A Grey Day is a relaxing and exhilarating experience all at once. This is a journey you will want to take again and again. 4.5/5 Stars
