Treasure marks the explosive and unbounded combination of two ambient recording masters. David Helpling and Jon Jenkins express their vision on an epic and expansive scale, rich in organic textures and moving passages.
“Two stellar talents come together to build off and enhance one another’s strengths resulting in an album worthy of the title. From the bold and powerful to the serene and ethereal, I’ve been listening to this daily for weeks.”
- C. Cummins

A self-taught musician, David’s ability to “feel” the music has resulted in two captivating albums that showcase his atmospheric depth as well as his rhythmic sensibility. His debut release, Between Green And Blue, was a finalist for the 1997 INDIE Album-Of-The-Year, and is already considered a favorite among listeners to this genre. On his second release, Sleeping On The Edge Of The World, Helpling takes his unmistakable style and dense sound sculptures to a deeper level.
As a full-time composer, David has written music for several successful feature films. One of which, Trade Offs, had David immersed in the music of India. After several intense years of writing and producing music for film, Treasure marks David’s return to the musical form for which he is most passionate.
As a recording artist, Jon sees it as his responsibility to reach out, grab the listeners by the ears, drag them into another world and show them around a little bit. “I’ve always been fascinated by the ability of a good piece of music to stimulate the imagination and transport the listener to another place in their mind without ever leaving their chair.”
When you put on a copy of his solo debut release, Flow, you’ll know he’s not kidding. By the time the first track is over, you’ve been pulled through a sonic wormhole and dropped into a world of many wonders. On his next release, Beyond City Light, Jenkins takes this wide angle approach to the next level with deeper spaces and more powerful grooves.
On his new release, Treasure, Jenkins has found the perfect musical collaborator in David Helpling. The two express their vision on an epic and expansive scale, rich in organic textures and moving passages.
“A gorgeous soundscape where time seems almost irrelevant”
- Synththopia Critic Review
“The collaboration between Helpling and Jenkins seems a natural one, their styles seamlessly fusing together into an organic sounding release …not a bad track in the bunch. Treasure is easily one of my favorite CDs of 2007.”
