ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New Fire: WINNER Indian Summer Music Award. Native American Music Award nominee.

Native American Music Award winner Scott August's latest relelase, New Fire, returns to the innovative style of his debut recording Distant Spirits but with more energy and excitement. With its catchy melodies, driving rhythms and exotic, yet familiar instruments, New Fire, an Indian Summer Music Award winner, has quickly become one of the best selling CDs of Native American inspired New Age music. 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.

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.

August's second release, Sacred Dreams, shifted gears to focus on the haunting sounds of the solo Native American flute, including the deep resonant tones of the Native Bass flute and clay flutes from ancient Mexico. Added to this captivating mix are the natural sounds of the Southwest. Sacred Dreams went on to win a Native American music award in the winter of 2005.

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.

Enchanting
This is the first I've heard of this artist, but I have a few other Native American Flute albums, and I must say, I quite enjoyed this one. More modern in nature, than the traditional Native American take, but with just enough traditional tones to admire the difference. Great album, I am honored to add it to my collection.

Andy Mowatt

Superb! Just as good as his first two CD's.
The sounds on this CD transport the listener to the canyons and valleys of the southwest. So relaxing and enjoyable, you can feel you are actually there. Great.

Laura

We really enjoy the CD, the sounds of nature are great.
The CD's Arrived OK, we really like the sounds of nature, the eagle and thunder etc, the flutes are haunting. Really nice music.

SQAN

An excellent CD
Time seemed to stand still as I listened to this album. The songs are relaxing, innovative, and inspirational. I bought the CD on a whim because the sample music reminded me of David Gordon, Steve Gordon and Primal Instinct.

Robert Woods

It has become my 88 year old mother's favorite of all our music.
So well done. Well produced great depth old world. A great play and addition to the library.
