Idyllic Music always invites introspection. Sometimes you'll find it in a rural village, sometimes a stretch of beach or a large American city. This week we'll hear from Falling You, Portal, Tems and Minor Chill. I'm Jim Nye.
San Francisco-based Composer/Producer John Michael Zorko's collective vision includes a dozen or more women vocalists recording under the name Falling You. This is 'Something About Eve'

Recording as Portal along with vocalist Rachel Hughes, this song was recorded for a session on Radio 100, Amsterdam called 'Waves & Echoes'
