Reaching Calm is the creation of Instrumentalist/Composer Scott M. Long. Although Scott has

"Surely all art is the result of one's having been in danger, of having gone through an experience
the way to the end, where no one can go any further." -Rainer
Reaching Calm music is designed to bring you the listener, to
a place of quiet, rest, peace and tranquility. To achieve this I have had to find that place within myself. Over
the past few years I have worked tirelessly on balancing internal and external circumstances, professionally and personally
to assure that the music I release is true to myself and to you. I am continuously grateful to those of you that have been
so patient and kind. Everyone’s purpose in life is as different and
unique as the individual. I have always felt the need to create music and do so in a way that is for the better good of the
listener. If I can bring calm and serenity to those who listen, then I have been of service to my purpose.
