Sounds of Manatanka calls this album
Rapid City Journal reviews:
"'Sunrise' folk captures earthy spirit with style!"
"A homage to nature is on the cover and in the straight-forward folk music on Bunny Sings Wolf's newest album...
Black Hills folk singer Bunny Sings Wolf ably fills the niche of local Earth Mother with unforgettable folk panache.
The Lakota-inflected folk songs of her new CD, "White Haired Sunrise," are marked both by their spiritual and social awareness and Sings Wolf's delicate vocal delivery.
On "White Haired Sunrise," her third CD, Sings Wolf's ... theme is woven around acoustic guitar punctuated by wooden flute. Her delivery is uncluttered, and she seems perpetually at ease, even amid the gloom of the disc's opening song, "The End is Near," which begins: "When the mountain trembled and I held on tight/ And knew that hanging wouldn't save me/ Still I strengthened my grip, praying rather than hoping."
No matter the outlook of the song, spiritual well-being seems to be the focus, and the natural world informs the music. Her organic folk is well-suited to the simple, straightforward performances.
Sings Wolf ... made her name busking around the Black Hills but more recently has worked her way into [international recognition]. With "White Haired Sunrise," she captures the spirit of the Earth Mother, briefly, and sets it free to roam the Black Hills again."
WHITE HAIRED SUNRISE
Refreshingly Insightful, sunrise beautiful music to comfort your soul from the Heart of the Sacred Black Hills.
WHITE HAIRED SUNRISE is a gentle breeze with crisp, melodic Native American flute harmonies over Bunny’s river rapids powerful seasoned voice and acoustic guitar dancing in the background. The peaceful sounds and life-experienced lyrics is a memorable journey and healing experience. All 16 of the fantastic original songs on this CD are comforting, peaceful sounds, just in time to send messages of hope, freedom and peace to a troubled world.
With brand NEW white buffalo bird flutes custom made for Bunny, used as harmonies on almost all of the 16 songs on this album - (including Kate Wolf's "Give Yourself to Love" and "These Time We're Living In").
The music of Bunny Sings Wolf honors and brings forward the music of the late Kate Wolf. However, the idea behind the CD cover art also pictures the honoring of the Wolf as it is meaningful to some indigenous cultures. In legend it is said the Wolf comes from the Great Star Nation - the home of teachers, and it's association with "moon energy" (feminine) portraying them as holding the secrets of nurturing, knowledge and wisdom and good family and community relationships.
Now residing in the Black Hills, Bunny has written over 400 songs that have come in dreams, and she prepares now to release a new 2 CD album of more Wolf wisdom.
