ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sacred Dreams

Native American Music Award winning Sacred Dreams, August‘s second release, is a soothing journey of haunting Native American flute solos, featuring plains flutes, woodland flutes and the deep resonant tones of the Native Bass flute and clay flutes from ancient Mexico. Added to this captivating mix are gentle drums, soft native vocals and the natural sounds of the Southwest. A quiet canyon. A turquoise sky, An abandonded Pueblo. Thunder echoing off sandstone cliffs. Voice of the Wind magazine wrote “August captures the Southwest perfectly.”

Scott August burst onto the Native American inspired New Age music scene in 2001 with his ground breaking recording Distant Spirits. Combining Native American flutes with guitar and piano, along with native and world percussion, Distant Spirits redefined the genre with its timeless soundscapes and soothing textures, and was a nominee for a Native American Music Award.

On his newest release, New Fire, August returns to the innovative style of his first recording but with more energy and spirit. With its catchy melodies, driving rhythms and exotic, yet familiar instruments, New Fire has quickly become one of the best selling Native American-Southwest inspired New Age music titles. Soaring Native American flute melodies accompanied by guitars, pianos, Aztec drums, African kalimbas, Indonesian gamelans, Australian didgeridoos and haunting Mayan double flutes are mixed together for form a rich fabric of sound.

Likened to the music of R.C. Nakai, John Huling, Douglas Spotted Eagle and Mary Young Blood, August's music has been featured on the nationally syndicated NPR radio shows “Hearts of Space” and “Echoes”. New Age Retailer magazine called his music “gorgeous... August [is] a superbly gifted multi-instrumentalist, [his music is] an excellent accompaniment for meditation or yoga, and it is transporting music for simple relaxation and quiet listening.”

August continues to push the boundaries of Native American flute music with his unique, unmistakable, and acclaimed best selling style.

Can't wait for his 4th CD. They are that good!
I first heard Scott August at the Flute Odyssey in Phoenix. (Prior to that, I had not even heard his name.) His performance was captivating, so I bought his New Fire CD. After wearing it out, I decided to buy his Sacred Dreams CD, figuring it could not possibly be as good. IT WAS! Needles to say I bought his 3rd CD, Distant Spirits. Equally as good. All three CDs are excellant, yet different. That is what sets this musician apart from the rest. A 'real' talent! That being said, you will not go wrong by picking up this CD, Sacred Dreams. It is not "just another Native American Flute CD.
I can hardly wait to see what he has planned for CD #4?

Ed Pendrys, Tucson Native American Flute Circle

Sacred Dreams is great. New Fire is fantastic.
Everyone I know who has heard "Sacred Dreams" and "New
Fire" played in our home has gone out and bought a copy
for their collection. It is great music from an outstanding artist.

Debbra Halbur

It moved my soul
I was hooked when I heard the snippet on the website. I love Native American music anyhow, but this was amazing.

C O`Brien

fantastic
This is my second scott August album,Sacred dreams sits along side New fire and both are played all the time.
Sacred dreams takes you back to a time of peace and lets you forget, for a while,the hum drum of modern life.
A credit too you Scott.

"Sacred Dreams" captures gorgeous, earthy tapestries of Native American flute conversing, dancing and playing with Mother Nature's own musicality. Weaving the songs of birds, crickets and insects with the flute's woody call this award-winning album captures the environment of the southwest: a quiet canyon, an abandonded pueblo, thunder echoing off sandstone cliffs. Scott August presents a heartfelt experience for relaxation, grounding and inward looking.

Andy Mowatt

So soothing and relaxing
Scott August has captured such soothing and relaxing sounds. To listen to one of his CD's helps relax and transport one's mind to beautiful places. Superb! The birds etc, really add to the feeling of being at one with nature.

andrea maas

awsome and fantastic
the music made me feel like i was in a canyon surrounded by all natures wonders about 1000 years back in time.

Catherine Tuhy

Songs deeply stirring and place listener in SW canyons
Sacred Dreams caught my attention instantly the first time I heard it. Never in my life has music of any kind moved me to the depths of my soul in the way that Sacred Dreams has. I've never heard Native flutes played more beautifully. These songs place me in my beloved canyons and I never tire of listening to them. And, this CD is actually responsible for my own personal epiphany. I am grateful.

Cindy

Incredibly soothing
This CD is so relaxing and soothing. Great for meditation. I listen at work too, when things get stressful. Fantastic CD!
