We Must Believe In Magic

I remember believing in MAGIC.

I recall the wind in itself being alive and with a voice… It smelled awake, purposeful and speaking in a resounding tongue I perfectly understood. All was vast,
open, dazzling and wondrous. I believe this to be the truth of the world. And now? It is not the MAGIC that has altered but discernment… The way we breathe the world in, the way our eyes cut to the obvious flash, instead of opening to see the authentic reality.

It is not that we have to make MAGIC, create it as a sorcerer or a miracle maker… It is alive and very real. It is that we must BELIEVE IN MAGIC. It is not the truth that changes, it is that we move ourselves out of the grasp of the MAGIC… It is the awakening to the substance unseen which will allow us to once again remember. And to remember, we realize firstly it is not the truth that changes, but that we have moved ourselves out of the grasp of the MAGIC…

And now hope is just alive as the MAGIC itself. Infinitesimal faith is as powerful as a mountain, like the life within a seed, every fiber of our bodies beat with the cells of a thousand generations to come, and within is a steady, untangled line from the very beginning.

This is our power to claim, this is our MAGIC.

No matter our path, the MAGIC is inside us all. And though it may be forgotten, it can be remembered once again… It is only up to us to do one single thing, and do it purely…

  • “...this album is truly spectacular...
    Quite simply, this is something totally different.”
  • If John Cash could turn Nine Inch Nail's "Hurt" into a folk-guitar prayer, then why shouldn't his son remake Blue Oyster Cult's heavy-rocking "Godzilla" as a Tori Amos-style piano ballad?

    Recording Studio
    Hendersonville, TN
    The Cash Cabin Studio

    Johnny Cash built the original cabin in 1978. It was then, as it is now, a place to find solace and make music. However, the idea of it being a studio did not arrive for some years. In 1993, while in production for the first of AMERICAN RECORDINGS projects, produced by Rick Rubin, Johnny had recording gear installed. Since then, the CASH CABIN STUDIO has hosted hundreds of artists and within its walls, thousands of songs have been recorded.
