The Process - Gypsy Wind


The Process Presents

Gypsy Wind

David Asher has done it again with his new single Gypsy Wind. Asher has a cranky genius that gives his best works an emotional coloration. He is a teacher and a linguist of the first order. He has a fear of putting out a short answer for it lacks depth and conviction. He has a mental compartment in which one thing is connected to everything else. He has a relationship with knowledge and he knows once he reveals it through his songs, it isn’t his anymore. He breathes political fire with a strong dose of spiritual enlightenment. Sometimes Asher is in a dark place yet it is soft and it comes together for him in a felt sense of what should be. He’s created a song that speaks of today instead of recycling stories of the past. Gypsy Wind has all these elements working together in a quest for deep meaning and emotion, a quest for authenticity and the highs and lows of life in the roller coaster of time. In this moment Asher is truly alive. His artistic nature shines and his passion feeds his caring and desire to help the world as he discovers his true self. Listen to the music. The divine is calling

A gong signals a cascade of descending synth accents like a waterfall that refreshes and heals. The musical patterns established in the opening become reoccurring and dominate themes throughout the song. Asher’s composition contains several different musical and lyrical ideas that are similar in construction to an operatic movement.  As the synth fades the familiar reggae beat follows in that choppy and enduring rhythm.  Asher’s message is accessible yet profound. He seems to be singing about universal meanings when in fact he’s singing about his own life. 

Star Crossed adventurer

When will you know

When will you know

That you are old


Asher’s spiritual quest is confronted in the next verse

The race is not for the swift

The battle is strong

Better a poor and wise child

Than an old and foolish King


The chorus reveals his longing

It’s a restless wind

That blows you around

From pole to pole

With a gypsy wind


His search for spiritual transcendence

Who is this that comes out of the wilderness

Like billows of smoke

Who is she that comes out of the wilderness

Perfume and myrrh

And all the power of the merchant





Asher reveals his quest to enlighten the world

From the North Pole to the South Pole

From Hong Kong to New York

From Capetown to Cairo

From London to Los Angeles


At the coda a soulful heavenly voice brings the song to a dramatic conclusion with an answer, the only answer it could be.
