Reviews

“With SACRED, Kevin Wood presents a stunning collage of multi-cultural chant samples, piano and synthesizers designed to capture the beauty of the world’s spiritual traditions. Two particular cultures are highlighted on this release — European Monastic life (Gregorian chant) and Native American chant. It may seem like an unusual pairing; but combined with Wood’s ethereal soundscapes, the sound is reverential and soul-stirring. And it works! Surprisingly well, in fact. Most of the cuts range in mood from melancholy to dreamy and the whole album is very well produced and polished. Wood’s sound here is reminiscent of groups like Lesium and Magna Canta, only the beats are toned down in favor of relaxing new age instrumentation.”

Music Design

“Kevin Wood’s first CD, the excellent “Scenic Listening,” certainly whetted out appetites for more. His melodic sensibilities, and the ability to blend a variety of styles into a cohesive whole, set him apart from the norm. Now he has taken his recipe even further and delivered a veritable buffet of gourmet listening. This time, the main ingredients are Native American voices, Gregorian chants, various world vocals and modern rhythms that approach the catchy sound of Enigma, Delerium, Deep Forest and Sacred Spirits, but without the pop gloss or heaviness that sometimes prevailed on these other famous projects. All instruments, composing and production are by Wood; he plays everything from Steinway grand piano to assorted keyboards, synthesizers and samplers. Joey Peterson plays fender bass. Kevin’s artful mix of beautiful melodies, ancient voices and steady rhythms can easily transport you to a paradise-like place of wisdom, peace and sanctity, hence the fitting title of ‘Sacred‘.”

Backroads Music

“This album is melodic and reverent and quietly odd — a combination that speaks to the part of me that sometimes seeks peace and respite from the relentless newness of our modern culture. It seems traditional and non-traditional in the same breath. We’ll stock this one for the customer who is seeking comforting music with more presence and structure than some of the “background music” albums.” The Odyssey
