ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Spirit Wind is Paula Burris, Vito de la Cruz, Ken Daniels, Steve Brennan and Stan Sanchez. The individual members of the band have been making music over the past 30 years.

Paula Burris is a member of the Cherokee Nation from Oklahoma. She grew up singing rock and folk in Southern California and later moved to Northern Nevada where she has entertained audiences with many different musical acts. Paula plays 12-string guitar, native flutes and percussion and is the band's lead vocalist. Paula has a distinctive vocal style which traces its influences to Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Etheridge. Paula's flute melodies are woven into many of Spirit Wind's songs and are an intimate part of the original sound produced by the band.

Vito de la Cruz is Yaqui/Chicano. He plays 6 and 12-string guitar, native flutes and harmonica on the band's compact disc. With Paula, Vito shares some of the lead vocal work for the band. Paula and Vito are the principle songwriters for the band.

Ken Daniels is Spirit Wind's bass player and acoustic lead guitar player. Ken has been making music for many years with a wide variety of musical ensembles. His bass playing is both subtle and distinctive. His acoustic lead work is ethereal and penetrating. Ken and Paula have played together before and bring a warm cohesion and familiarity to the band's sound.

Steve Brennan is the band's multi-talented drummer/percussionist and back-up vocalist. Steve brings a steadiness to Spirit Wind born out of years playing with Northern Nevada bands and, more so, playing with Ken and Paula.

Stan Sanchez is a member of the Walker River Paiute Tribe from Northern Nevada. Stan's influences draw from hard driving blues guitarists to Santana. Stan's lead work on "Free" transformed several of the songs into well-rounded compositions.

"Music has been such an integral part of our lives. At some point in our journeys, music has helped us to laugh, to cry and to express our inner-most feelings, no matter what they were. We would like to share with you a few of our experiences through the gift of music. Heart to heart."
~Spirit Wind~

Music touches our souls... the words touch our hearts
I truly believe we will be hearing a great deal more from Spirit Wind. Not only do they have a great sound, but the songs themselves captivate you, the words take you to another place... and I like being there.

Beautiful Music, Beautiful words
Spirit Wind is Superb! An intense spiritual and emotional musical experience. Beautiful music and wisdom that touched me deep in my heart and soul and moved me to tears. I can go on…

Poetry and music heals the soul, plays the mind..and it's a gift.
I really think this is fantastic. It's not so black and white, blunt to hurt anyone. I did hear Santana in it before I read about the group. You stinker. I love Santana.
All you band members did great creating this CD. HEY!! What's CRACKIN?? Write me: jcsas_2000@yahoo.com tell me more about these songs. How and why..and who dunnit.

walaxusta

great music which is uplifting for the heart, soul and spirt.
the words and music are from the heart and soul of musicians that brings with each beat and word an inner sense of beauty that touches the heart, soul and spirt of each listener; each in many ways.

Marc

Unique and enchanting mix of musical styles
Spirit Wind's CD is a unique mix of musical styles that both entertains and intrigues the senses. The music is both uplifting and reflective, leading you on uncharted journeys to somewhat familiar but distinctly different destinations.

Brian H

Honest Music
Nothing fancy just solid talent. Superb interplay between the band members makes Free a Disc to have in your Native music collection. Not only is this band loaded with talent, they are a hoot to interview.

A Plus-- Between a Lament and a Lullaby
The music makes me listen closely to the words, each with its own strength and power. The chords, modulations, and guitar runs are excellant -- so different from the tired standards. The Native American flute meshes well with the harmonica, which I wanted to hear more of. Will I next time? If so, 5 stars then.

CARMEN

THIS IS A PHENOMENAL CD! CAPTIVATING MUSIC. LYRICS CONVEY INTERESTING IMAGERY.
THIS IS A PHENOMENAL CD! THE LYRICS EVOKE A RANGE OF EMOTIONS, FROM BLISSFULNESS TO SORROW TO SHEER DESIRE. THE FIRST TRACK, ROSE-COLORED MORNING, DESERVES A REPRISAL AND THANKFULLY GETS ONE. THE SOUND OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTE IS TRULY PLEASURABLE TO THE EAR. ECSTASY, MAYBE AND GOOD MORNING MY FRIEND, ARE ALSO TRACKS THAT CONVEY EMOTION AND LYRICAL IMAGERY IN A FRESH SOUNDING WAY.

I expected just Native American themes,but heard a variety of American folk songs/music w/basic instruments & timeless emotions.
