Ann Licater is an award-winning recording artist, world flutist, producer and composer. She created and facilitates “Flute for the Soul” workshops where she plays Native American and world flutes as a tools for personal discovery. On her four albums, Following the Call, Doorway to a Dream, Invitation from Within and Beyond the Waves, as in her healing concerts, Ann’s unique approach merges her intuition, spiritual perspective and traditional music background. Her love of wood and clay flutes led her to study with master flutist R. Carlos Nakai complementing her years of classical flute training at the MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis, MN.
Beyond the Waves, Licater’s fourth album releasing April 8, 2016, is an artfully-recorded collection of contemporary instrumental compositions co-produced by Licater, Dan Ferguson, Ivar Lunde, Jr. and Peter Phippen. The music, featuring Licater on lead flute with guest artists on guitar, bass, piano, world percussion, violin, vocals and more has a fresh and pristine sound (a hallmark of her recordings) with influences of new age, jazz and world music. The CD back cover notes state the music is like a "traveling meditation” that's perfect for relaxation, rejuvenation and inner reflection. Licater loves to create music that takes listeners on an inner journey.
Licater’s music is award-winning and award-nominated from “Top Ten Best New Age Album” by Amazon music editors, to “Best Relaxation Album” by ZMR Music Awards and beyond.
