Whether you’re a new performing musician running your own sound through a battery operated amp, a seasoned touring pro with a crew or, like myself, a touring seasoned pro who mostly runs his own sound, one thing is for certain—you must have a good sound check! The actual engineering of a thorough sound check could fill a book, and it does, I want to offer a few tips from my decades of experience.

 

"...Within each performance, there is incredible stillness and reflection and yet, the album is deeply inspired and threaded with sincere feeling. If you have enjoyed and followed the work of R. Carlos Nakai, Marina Raye or Mark Holland, this is a must-have seasonal gem." 
"Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Starting November 30, 2015 (Cyber Monday) at 12AM and running through December 4th at 11:59PM, we’ll take the hit on shipping costs to encourage my fans to buy more of my CDs from my distributor, CD Baby. It doesn’t matter if you order 1 CD or 100, standard shipping — domestic AND international — will be  TOTAL. And of course, we’ll still be shipping these CDs for you to get them in time for the holidays!

As I am of Native American ancestry I especially feel it important to be included in this genre. While Native American is as much about spirit as ancestry, I also respect that as Natives, we share a common experience that hasn’t always ended well for us. That we endure is testament to our resilience and spirit. Aho!

Experience offers appreciation I’ve found. You have to choose this lifestyle and those who’ve come before didn’t have it any easier. I‘m most grateful when the host, organizer or venue has put thought and energy in the concert of festival. Anything that I don’t have to attend to allows me to focus on the music and performance........

"Deep Peace is a very special song to many listeners. You have told me you use it as a lullaby, for meditation, for healing, for friends and family who are terminally ill, etc. That is very meaningful to me. I recorded this song after my partner passed from pancreatic cancer in 2011. It was my way of presenting the idea or surrender and coming to peace when someone you love it going to leave you and transition home. When I perform it at shows people always cry. Always. May it bring you that peace."

Hey friends. So much to tell you, however, today I need your vote. I'm so incredibly honored that I am nominated for a 2014 Native American Music Award aka a NAMMY. I'm nominated in the Category of "Songwriter of the Year" for my song Strong Medicine.  That is such an honor. Out of all the categories to be nominated in this makes me most proud.

The album Strong Medicine was funded with your support using Kickstarter. It was a musical journey of caregiving and loosing my partner of 10 years to pancreatic cancer. The music has affected so many of you as I have heard from listeners personally. 

Voting ends today Nov. 14 at noon. Here is what to do:

Thank you for your support. I'm on the road presently, again. Just performed and MC'd at Native Rhythms Festival in Melbourne, FL. I also taught in the first Native American Flute School there as well for two full days. What a blast!!!! Love that festival, the people and organizers. Please share this with your friends on FB just copy and paste the voting information. I'll keep you posted. 

Blessings

The number one question he is asked is if he makes his own flutes.

"There is a misconception that somehow all of us flute players have to make our own flutes and that we sit around whittling every day," Granger said, laughing. "That may be because people will look at the flute and think it's a pretty simple instrument to make — just cut a tree branch and drill some holes in it."

But that's not true.

Yesterday, performing at the World of Faeries Festival in South Elgin, IL a guy came up and left a shell with smoking sage in it and a bundle of it on the stage and bowed to me in honor. I bowed in return and continued to play. People applauded. A woman with a parasol kept getting closer and closer to the stage then stood right in front of the speaker, swaying back and forth, eyes closed absorbing the music note by note like a summer shower. Her woman friend came and held her and they seemed to be sharing a very special moment. When my set finished she stuffed a $20 bill into my gig bag. I said thank you and bowed.

Spider Rock Canyon de Chelly

Canyon de Chelly is so spiritually powerful that some even had visions of its inked walls before we went. They expressed it during the meditation groups I host and didn't know what it was. We went in groups along with guides in trucks and jeeps. I played my flute for people at various places along the tour one place called Ledge Dwellings had an amazing echo.
