Grandiose orchestral passages combine with modern electronic ambiences establishing a new sound to Kettering's repertoire. With Pathways a more melodic approach is taken throughout the album to convey a positive perspective to the complex journey of life. Beautiful solo contributions are made by cellist Kari Kettering of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and vocalist Francesca Genco. After a 20 year hiatus from playing trumpet, Kettering returns to the instrument in a special song featured at the end of the album. All music composed, produced, mixed and mastered by Chad Kettering. Digital synthesizers, digital samplers, trumpet and Native American flutes performed by Chad Kettering. Cello performed by Kari Kettering, Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Vocals by Francesca Genco. Album art design by Michal Karcz.
