I’ve had this record in my head for longer than I care to admit. But on Sept. 16, 2015, a whole ball of life passing me by hit me square upside my head when I lost my best friend in life, my most trusted soul brother, Neil Raabe.
Billy - Stix - Nicks
Billy ‘Stix’ Nicks is a living legend, one of our Heavenly Father’s greatest blessings to the instrument that has channeled the natural flow of rhythm into music since the first heartbeat was known to power mankind… the drum.
Jim - Ang - Anderson
That slide guitar you hear on “Mississippi Hoodoo” that helps keep “Inipi” in the trenches of the Delta blues belongs to none other than genuine Chicago blues article Jim “Ang” Anderson.
In recent years, JJ has shifted his focus from country back to the music of his heritage through the indigenous Northern Plains flute, which earned him the honor of being named “Flutist of the Year” at the 2009 NAMMY Awards.
Ricki focused his energies on the music he was listening to – Kid Rock, Slipknot, Korn and heavy metal groups early on before turning his attention to techno and the samples and beats that poured into the music of hip hop. When he started pursuing his own music at the age of 15 by writing his own lyrics and rapping with neighborhood friends.
The name might not strike an immediate chord but Willie Waldman is one you’ll find in the liner notes of great artists and groups such as Banyan, Rob Wasserman, Perry Farrell and the late Tupac Shakur.
The true soul of the singer can capture a voice to the story out of thin blue air then get behind a microphone and bless it as her very own with heart, passion and eternal radiance.
The gorgeous piano that opens “Inipi” and flows into the soul of “Master Midnight,” “Smile At Me” and “Fancy Pants” belongs to Jean Prosper
If being able to turn an instrument into a distinct voice so profound that the sound of its first note is known by name from coast to coast and beyond, then Ron Holloway is among the chosen few of the greatest saxophonists anywhere.
