Editors’ Notes

On his first solo album since 1999’s Defying Gravity, John Elefante recalls his glory days as lead singer of Kansas while delivering fervent testimonies of Christian faith. The soaring vocals, muscular instrumental work, and tempo-shifting arrangements that have long characterized his work are abundant here. Richly textured tracks like “How the Story Goes" (featuring extended solos by Kansas violinist Dave Ragsdale and guitarist Rich Williams), “Where Have All the Old Days Gone” (a track bristling with arena-rock swagger), and “Don’t Hide Away” (riding a dynamic, Steve Winwood–like soul groove) display both substantial songcraft and a widescreen production touch. “We All Fall Short” and “Confess” lean more toward the acoustic side, while “The Awakening” has an expansive, almost New Age feel. “This Time”—a narrative song with a pro-life message—may be the album’s boldest lyric statement. On My Way to the Sun finds Elefante at the top of his powers, praising his Creator while making some of the best music of his career.

Customer Reviews


This is how you know that you have listened to a great album...When you can't keep yourself from going back to the 90 second previews over and over again! Phenomenal sound and quality with perfect vocals only to be expected from John Elefante.

Thank You, John!

When is the last time you said, "Why can't anybody put out an album like they used to?" Well, here is your answer. Superb from the first note until the last. It's quite a task to equal or surpass Revolution Of Mind, but in my opinion John has done just that with On My Way To The Sun. John is very good at maintaining the older rock sound that I love while injecting new sounds and enveloping it in modern recording techniques. Love the Jamie West-Oram guitar style on The Awakening! Sorry, iTunes, I need this with the jewel case & liner notes! BUY IT!!!

Best collection of music of John's career!!

I have had the privilege of hearing this album in its entirety. It is UNBELIEVABLE! The music is stellar, the lyrics are strong yet vulnerable, and the entire project is a definite glimpse into the heart of an incredibly talented artist. If you are a fan of John's solo career, there is plenty to enjoy on this album. However, if you are more of a fan of his work with Kansas or Mastedon - you will be BLOWN AWAY by the musicianship and songwriting of this project. John's voice hasn't lost a step - in fact it has never sounded better! Go ahead and click the "purchase this album" button RIGHT NOW. You will be listening to this collection for the next year or more non-stop.
