Synopsis

Product Description
Longing For Home (Songs From War) is a first-hand account of war by a soldier. Written by Army Captain and MEDEVAC pilot Peter Jennison during a year-long deployment to the war in Iraq, Longing For Home is a visual experience that transports the listener through music directly to the battlefield, allowing them to intimately experience the power of war and its effect on soldiers and their families. Longing For Home was produced by Grammy Award Winning Artist William Ackerman and recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Corin Nelsen and features performances by Will Ackerman (Windham Hill), the Late T-Bone Wolk (Hall and Oates), Jeff Haynes (Pat Metheny Group) and others. A portion of the proceeds from every album sold will be given to charities that support veterans and their families. Album excerpt and commentary by Artist Peter Jennison: I wrote Longing for Home during a year-long deployment with the Army for the war in Iraq. Each song tells a story through a soldier s eyes and I hope they will become pictures for your ears. Pictures that reveal the incredible and unselfish love that soldiers have for their families, and their homelands as they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for both. Pictures that reveal soldiers are not only warriors, but also poets, and romantics, and artists. Pictures that tell of a time of no more war when we all come home. So, as you listen, close your eyes, and see in your heart what until now you could only imagine from the fear of a soldier running across the battlefield, the seemingly endless march of time away from home, the brief rise and fall of a desert rainstorm, the promise to return made to a loved-one to the exhilaration of homecoming with the last few steps of a son into a mother s arms. These are the pictures of soldiers everywhere . It is my honor to share them with you here. I hope that you will listen and see , always--Peter Jennison
