"Peaceful, timeless. . . listeners are treated to a soundscape of ethereal beauty accented by world culture themes.' -- Music Design
"Fantastic, Magnificent!" -- Lloyd Barde (Backroads Music)
"After listening to “Kindred”, you may just feel as I do and not take this CD out of your player for quite some time. . . The vocal tracks are perfectly woven in with the instrumentals and provide a new sound for those listeners familiar with Wood’s previous works." -- Gregory Johnson (Beetcafe.com)
Top-5 Album on the New Age charts (NAR) for three consecutive months!
Voices of nostalgia and joy will take you on a spiritual journey from American Southwest plains to Ireland’s misty moors and beyond. The stories they sing are set against modern grooves and ethereal arrangements to create a rich listening experience.
May the music remind us we are all connected –- bound together by spirit, as well as our appreciation for beauty. Indeed, we are all. . . Kindred.
Kindred was debuted April 4th at the Deepak Chopra meditation workshop/retreat, "Seduction of Spirit," in Austin, Texas, with Wood as the feature performer. Ten percent of proceeds from this album benefit the Great Promise for Ameirican Indians charity.
