Newcomer, Carrie - Kindered Spirits: A Collection

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Carrie Newcomer's music has always explored the intersection of the spiritual and the daily, the sacred and the ordinary. Over the course of her career she has become a prominent voice for progressive spirituality, social justice and interfaith dialogue.

Newcomer's ability for sharp observation of the world lead the Dallas Morning News to rave, "She's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, 'that is so true.'" She has been described as "a soaring songstress" by Billboard, a "prairie mystic" by the Boston Globe and Rolling Stone has declared that Newcomer "asks all the right questions." Author Barbara Kingsolver wrote, "She's a poet, storyteller, snake-charmer, good neighbor, friend and lover, minister of the wide-eyed gospel of hope and grace."

The two new songs, "The Speed of Soul" and "A Long Christmas Dinner," were recorded and produced by Newcomer, Robert Meitus and David Weber at Airtime Studios. "The Speed of Soul" is a poignant exploration of a more deliberate relationship to time in an increasingly fast-paced culture. "A Long Christmas Dinner" creates a portrait of life and family as part of an ongoing continuum. In the songs "I Believe," "Geodes" and "Holy as a Day Is Spent," Newcomer quietly and beautifully describes the presence of something extraordinary in the midst of our ordinary days. She sings, "God walks around in muddy boots, sometimes rags and that's the truth" and "Folding sheets like folding hands, to pray as only laundry can." "Before and After" explores the large and small experiences by which we mark our lives through a haunting duet with Mary Chapin Carpenter, resulting in a remarkable combination of two of acoustic music's most rich and resonant females. "The Gathering of Spirits," featuring Alison Krauss, is a clear-voiced and crystalline celebration of life. "Betty's Diner" is a hymn to the human condition and the presence of grace in something as small as a shared meal or cup of coffee - "Here we are all in one place, the wants and wounds of the human race . . . let her fill your cup with something kind, eggs and toast like bread and wine." Also included are the spiritual and tender "Sparrow" and the wry and raucous "Where You Been." The sensual "I Do Not Know Its Name" describes poetically and lyrically the sacred we experience, but which cannot be named. Reaching into her early work, "A Whole Lot of Hope," "Bare to the Bone" and "My True Name" are snapshots of what has always been present in Newcomer's songwriting and has only deepened and expanded with each recording.
