Ambiance Du Ciel
What do you imagine heaven to be like? Peaceful, happy, refreshing, fun? It's all of these things and more. Let the unique lyrics, acoustic style and vocal harmonies of Paul and Susan Hansen bring the Atmosphere of Heaven into your life--in French! Paul was an itinerant folksinger-songwriter based in the Greenwich Village section of New York City in the late sixties. He also played in a rock band in Illinois for a time. He moved to Atlanta for a while and teamed up with guitarist-songwriter Pat Alger to play clubs and colleges in the Southeastern United States until deciding to bail out of the music scene for a while. Before the Paul left the duo, 'Hansen and Alger' played a folk festival in Putney, Vermont. This connection eventually led to his meeting his future wife, Susan. When they met, Susan had just begun to write her own material. Their friendship developed as they gathered often with other musician friends to play old favorites and share original songs in various living rooms, back porches, and fields in Vermont. Although they shared a great love with these wonderful people, a greater love called them to a yet higher destiny. With an even deeper motive than a musical one, they had also been searching for the truth in eastern religions, astrology and the occult. Their search finally culminated in the realization that Jesus Christ really is the Son of God-that He had already bought and paid for their much-needed peace of mind and eternal well-being. Full of joy and excitement over their new discovery, they married and moved to the mid-west for ministerial training. Since that time, they have served in various capacities in churches in Oklahoma, New Jersey and California. They have traveled with their music to England, Scotland, Wales, Canada, France, India, and Costa Rica and have recorded two CDs: 'Snapshots of Glory' and 'Atmosphere of Heaven.' 'Ambiance du Ciel' is the French version of 'Atmosphere of Heaven,' and it will soon also be available in Spanish ('Atmósfera del Cielo'). Paul and Susan continue to enjoy writing, recording and sharing their original music and the message of hope and peace-not only through music, but teaching as well. They travel full-time in the United States and overseas and currently reside in Carlisle, Massachusetts.
