Spiral Rhythm is a group of friends that have been singing together for almost ten years. They began singing at bonfires, gatherings, and festivals. Slowly, they developed their unique sound complete with deep, multi-textured chants and explosive drums.
Spiral Rhythm has gone through many changes, but their goal has always been the same-to raise the spirit through voice and song. The group features Ric Neyer, Kerri Upton, Kiki Williamson, Jon Skoglund, (four from the original group first named 'Trybalaka'), Madison Cansler, Laurel Eris, Kathy Hardman, PJ Seale, andMark Witters. All sing and play percussion. Kiki and PJ write the vast majority
of the group's uplifting songs.
Spirit music, indeed!
Spiral Rhythm has released six CD's- 'I Am', 'Live @Turning Of the Year 2002', 'Roll Of Thunder','Live at PSG 2004', and 'Drums Circle', and now 'Live '05'. Along with appearing at Musiphysical Productions happenings, they have been featured performers of PSG at Wisteria 2003 and 2004, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Jacksonville, Greenville-Spartanburg Pagan Pride Days, festivals and gatherings throughout the Southeast, and beyond. Their inspiring music has been featured on WitchVox, Fellowship Of The Earth, Circle Of Souls, Goddess Internet Radio,
and many other outlets across the U.S. and Canada.
Here are some reviews from their "Roll Of Thunder" CD:
'Beautiful heartfelt music for listening and singing along' -
Reviewer: Unitarian Women's Earth Based Group
Our women's earth based group brought this CD to a drumming circle night
where we listened and sang along. The songs are beautiful and easy to learn -
touching, heartfelt lyrics and beautiful harmonies -
perfect for our women's circle. Thank you!
'Fabulous. Great lyrics - inspiring rhythms'.-
Reviewer: Morgana Spirit Dancer
The lyrics send heartfelt messages. The drumbeats are easy to dance to
(I'm a bellydancer and flamenco dancer)The ebb and flow of musicality create a sacred space in which to transcend the mundane world. It is most inspiring. Many thanks.
'Perfect for Meditation and Rituals' -
I LOVE this CD!! "I am the Goddess" is the BEST Chant ever, this is the second CD I have from Spiral Rhythm and I am going to get the rest of them. I uploaded it to my computer at work and listen to it while working, it makes a difference in my energy levels during the day and my attitude. I also use it during Rituals, a GREAT way to build energy!
I listen to this CD every night as the wife and I are drifting off to sleep. Absolutely the most beautiful CD I have heard in a while. Chanting and drumming, a beautiful mix :)
'Just keeps getting better...'-
They just keep getting better! I heard this group at a festival 3 years ago for the first time and immediately bought their self titled CD. This year (at same festival) I heard some new material and bought this CD - I like this one even better!
Keep on writing, singing, chanting!
I am just beginning to build my pagan music collection; I'm so glad I found this one to add to it. It's extremely uplifting and at the same time inspirational. In fact, I went and found another of their CD's to order!
'Beautiful! Makes me want to dance!' -
'Probably one of the best Pagan music CD's I've ever heard'.
Keep up the great work!
Spiritually enlightened tunes and wondrous chants... from a place... out of time. I loved watching and hearing you all perform at PSG... and am so looking forward to seeing you again. This is a very grand energy. Thank you for your music and your talents.
'FANTASTIC!! these chants are so uplifting.'-
This CD Roll of Thunder is wonderful!! My sister and I use it in our rituals, the lyrics and the beats are perfect for energy work and anytime we want to just dance and leap in joy. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates the beauty of the human voice and rhythm.
Spiral Rhythm is truly a uniting force that must be experienced!
