Product Description

About the Artist

Abri van Straten was born in South Africa, and grew up in the picturesque city of Cape Town. Both parents were successful authors and encouraged the appreciation of the arts. He first picked up a guitar at the age of ten and never put it down again. Since completing a degree in music he has been the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the South African group, The Lemmings. The group has toured Europe, Scandinavia, and most recently the US, recorded four CD's and performed over one thousand shows.

Abri van Straten now lives in California with his wife, Kristin Bauer, a successful actress currently on True Blood, and has just released his first solo CD, Sunlight and Shadows. The CD has been compared to James Taylor and Sting with his classical guitar style and his relaxing, beautiful voice.

A song on the album called "Voices" was written for and donated to IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, to help them fight the illegal practice of whaling. Abri met IFAW through his wife and was moved by their persistent and effective programs. For a limited time Abri and Kristin are offering personalized autographs with every purchase of the CD from BauervanStraten thru Amazon.

Sure I admit it I got it just for his wife autograph. (Kristin Van Straten Pam from True Blood). But then I listen to "Sunlight & Shadows"! Amazing CD! Abri Van Straten has a great voice. Great buy.

Wow, where to start, I received this item from the BauerVanStraten storefront in record time, as it was coming all the way to Australia I believed the postage time estimate of the 6th of January 2012, however it arrived on the 23rd of December. Complete with the bonus "Pam" autograph, which is lovely also! The musical content of this CD is wonderful, emotional, relaxing and serene with such a wonderful voice, is made for easy listening. Highly recommended. Five star experience in every way.

I am listening to Abri's music and it just pleases my ears.I love the way he takes the words he writes and mixes them with his wonderful, deep voice and the sounds of his guitar.He is not only a sexy and talented artist but he paints a beautiful picture with an awesome distinctive sound.

I met Abri van Straten and his lovely wife Kristin while at a Patterns for Paws event back in July. They were very kind and took the time to talk with me. After I got home, I purchased a copy of Sunlight and Shadows and IMMEDIATELY started listening to it. I LOVED IT!

Abri has a very soothing voice and his songs are gorgeous! I'm now completely in love with the song Monet, and I turned it into a ringtone for my phone!

All the songs on Sunlight and Shadows are awesome, but depending on your tastes, you'll fall more in love with some than with others. That's just a matter of personal tastes, though.

This is absolutely worth the purchase! I highly recommend it!

I just bought this CD from Amazon a little over a week ago and it is WONDERFUL! Abri's music is not just soothing and pleasing to listen to but his lyrics inspire great imagery. You won't want to miss this one, believe me! I can't stop listening to this CD!

It's rare that I find an album where I like every song on it, but I can honestly say I like all of them on this CD. The song "Voices" is a personal favorite and not just because it was written for IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) to shed more light on the whales of our planet. You won't regret buying this one! I surely don't!

This is a wonderful album by Abri. It's so easy to listen to and every song has so much meaning. You can tell that he has such a passion for life, love and every living thing basically. It took no time at all to receive this CD once I ordered it...and I live in Australia (not even a week)! Two big bonuses too with ordering from here is that it comes personally signed to you from Abri and also comes with a signed photo of his wife Kristen as Pam from True Blood (TV Series). A must have for any fan :)

I purchased and received my cd and I must say that it was well worth it! Abri voice is a voice of pure beauty with or without the guitar. His songs are truely coming from the heart. Rather it is to save the whales, a song for his wife or something that he experienced and want to share with the rest of us.
The cd was so beautiful - that I had to shared this amazing voice and music with my family and friends. Who all want to purchase the cd.

What do I tell them now?

Thanks!

I have played this CD every day since I bought it. I love the music and the lyrics are very poignant, in fact I get more out of each song each time I listen to them. It's not often that a musician comes along whose music seems to touch my soul, but this is one of those occasions. Abri's voice is amazing... rich and very soothing.
If you only buy one CD this year, then make it this one. You will not be disappointed. I can't wait for more music from this brilliant musician.
