Grayhawk is a classically trained New Age composer, keyboardist and conductor, as well as a mystic, scholar of religious studies, musician, visionary, and sonic alchemist. He blends flutes with jaguars and percussion with deep water, using them to support human voices from all corners of the world map. His music portrays darkness and sunrise, crickets and chimes, wolf calls and drums, echoes and bird calls, history and imagination. He weaves this through and through with orchestras, ancient ceremonies, spells, invocations, modern media/news voices, etheric initiations, blessings honoring the Great Mother, pagan choirs, Druid earth rites, and prayers spoken in tongues that are both somehow familiar and in languages new to one’s ear.
Grayhawk was in the last class of the Latin-speaking altar boys, and grew up to be a practicing Wiccan, devoted to Earth-centered Spirituality that began with a Visionquest with Native American elders during the time of the Harmonic Convergence. This experience inspired the first segment of his Shamanic Trilogy, Shaman Journey recorded with the late New Age/Jazz icon, Paul Horn and fellow New Age veteran, David Darling. Next came the compelling and binding spell of Blissful Magic: Spiral of the Celtic Mysteries, an eco-warrior tour de force inspired by the activism of Redwood Summer. Shaman Journey, immersed in the energy of tropical rainforests, honors Goddess Pele and the entire Hawaiian Pantheon while submerging through the trans Pacific Echoes of Lemuria only to reemerge in the Dream-lodges of Native America; Blissful Magic takes place on the ancient Celtic lands, and Voice of the Ancestors reflects the transcendent magic and power of Angkor Wat and ancient Vietnam.
Grayhawk’s music is presented live with The Grayhawk Consort and is a finalist in the Peace Song Awards 2019. Grayhawk received a degree in music composition from the University Of California, Los Angeles which was formative to his ensuing lifelong interest in composing and producing sacred music when his Mass was performed by conducting professor, Roger Wagner, the founding director of the Los Angeles Master Chorale. Grayhawk worked as a film composer on Superstition, Killing Time, The Witch, Gold Plunder, Down Under, and more. He has travelled extensively throughout the world gathering inspiration and is a certified shiatzu practitioner/healer and psychic reader (Tarot).
Grayhawk is the devoted father of Bridget and is happily married to noted Vietnamese/American author, Nguyệt Mị (Dream Moon). The family resides in Temecula, California. Grayhawk teaches music in public schools and is founder of the Christopher Gibney Foundation, named for his toddler son, Christopher Rainbow Dragon, who perished in 2007 from neuroblastoma, a catastrophic pediatric cancer of the sympathetic nervous system. The foundation supports children and families afflicted with pediatric cancer, with the mission of supporting music education and increasing awareness of the disease, neuroblastoma, while supporting research and helping families that are so affected.
