Frank Kilpatrick & Rayko join us to discuss their Gratitude Series - A Musical Path Toward Healing, which includes songs that introduce people to meditations for gratitude. It’s so important to find richness in our everyday experiences. For so many of us, meditation can be difficult as it’s a challenge to slow down our thoughts and our brains, but music is a way to accomplish this more easily. We will learn more about these concepts and how these artists got inspired to collaborate on this series, and we’ll get to listen to The Awakening piece of their music.


Frank Kilpatrick created Gratitude to “draw attention to everything we have to be thankful for.” Frank created lyrics for all songs in the Gratitude suite and oversaw video and music production. He has written numerous songs in exploratory, harmonic and romantic genres that are available for licensing. Recently, he created “Stay Alive” – a 90-minute Suicide Prevention video podcast.


An “Emotional Conduit,” Rayko is a prolific songwriter and an energetic, sought- after vocalist. Rayko composed the melodies for Gratitude and sang, played on and produced all pieces as well. Her compositions often contain themes of social justice, female perspectives and cross-cultural challenge. Rayko is the vocalist in the house band of a popular Adult Swim show, and currently the voice of a new ride in Tokyo Disneyland.
