ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by his Cherokee heritage, this is the first Native American release from North Carolina singer/songwriter Chris Ferree.

Invocation is rooted in the traditional, while balancing on the edges of world and classical. Influenced by Robert Mirabal, Bill Miller, and Mary Youngblood, among others. It's a combination of strong traditional native american flute, drums and percussion fused with contemporary instruments ( piano, bass, strings, guitar ) and various ethnic sounds.

The result is a collection of instrumentals that ranges from haunting and meditative to spontaneous and moving; reflecting the spiritual journey of a man looking into his past trying to find a way of understanding the present. "I hope you enjoy and embrace these songs as much as I hope they honor and respect the Principle people of this land, those who walked the red road long ago and those who long to walk it now."


Walking The Red Road

Step 1: Observe nature with awe and gratitude, and a sense of love and respect for all creation will begin to grow within you.

Step 2: Learn to trust the Creator, and accept your circumstances. Overcoming adversity will produce spiritual growth within you.

Step 3: Seek for truth within yourself, that you may remove hypocrisy and evil intent from within your heart.

Step 4: Repent and humbly surrender your will to the Creator, that you may become one with the Great Spirit.

Step 5: Communicate with the Great Spirit from your heart. Listen, and live with the insight you receive.

Step 6: Learn true abstinence. It is in serving others, with an attitude of loving-kindness, so that you create a flow of living water that will purify your heart.

Step 7: Attain complete, joyous harmony with the Great Spirit. This requires that you totally surrender your will to the will of the Creator, and love others unconditionally without judgment because that is who you are.

Relaxing, Authentic Native Music
Chris' cd, Invocation, is a wonderful blend of Native American flute and modern instrumentation. After listening to all sample tracks there is no doubt that he is a most talented artist, who creates a high resonance within his music for relaxation and healing. I look forward to hearing more of his work for any years to come. Many blessings to you, Chris!
