"Jonas Magram's music is inspiring, energizing, and spiritually uplifting. A brilliant songwriter, he writes music that reaches deep into the soul and awakens the best and highest in all of us. And Jonas delivers his songs with a power, joy, and grace that last long after the last note is played. The world needs this music!" - Marci Shimoff, Co-author Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul. Freedom Train is Jonas Magram's second album, recorded with The Seventh Ray, following his highly praised Dancing In The Light (2005). After 40 years of teaching and practicing meditation and writing and performing, Jonas masterfully shares his heart, wisdom, and poetic lyrics with songs that truly do 'reach deep into the soul and awakens the best and highest in all of us.' In the tradition of Cat Stevens, Richie Havens, and Tim Buckley, Jonas has a voice every bit as rich and beautiful as his songs, and acoustic guitar skills that help bring the full emotional breadth of his music to life. One part Oakland, California, where he grew up, one part India - where he has studied and traveled extensively, and one part American Heartland - where he has lived most of the last three decades, Jonas creates a musical experience that nurtures heart, mind and soul. Freedom Train can best be described as a spiritual/positive thought rock and roll album. In addition to Jonas (vocals and acoustic guitar), Freedom Train features Greg Wadsworth (electric and classical guitars, piano, Hammond B-3 organ, vocals), Michelle Mook and Bonnie Van Buskirk (vocals), Tim Britton (mandolin), Ken Kolter (drums), and William Clancy (bass). Freedom Train was recorded at Catamount Studios in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
