CD Booklet

"Sand Floor Cathedral" has been inspired by the many wonderful adventures that I have had at sea. I have been swimming with humpback whales in the Dominican Republic's Silver Banks, I listened to, and have recorded their ancient songs. I have been swimming with bottlenose dolphins, spotted dolphins, and sharks in Bimini, Bahamas and I have been free-diving on shipwrecks and coral reefs throughout Florida and the Gulf of Mexico.

These fantastic life-changing adventures helped me to understand the cathedral of the sea and propelled my desire to musically share these experiences with others. The feelings that I had while being in the presence of such profound beauty found their way into my music.

Lee Johnson


Without leaving home, dive into the warm water of the Gulf of Mexico. Swim with the humpback whales in the Dominican Republics Silver Banks and hear their eternal songs. Listen to Sand Floor Cathedral by twenty-first century composer, Lee Johnson. Those are just some of the life-changing events you will experience. You will develop a spiritual connection to the cathedral of the sea. Honesty, warmth, divine understanding, and love will overwhelm your soul. Your life will be energized.
