ANCESTRAL WATERS BY JOHN HULING
John Huling's expertise in crafting soundscapes that mirror the majesty of the Native southwest is taken to new levels with ANCESTRAL WATERS. For starters, the artist trades the stark loneliness of mesas and plateaus for more ecologically rich vistas like meadows, grasslands and riverbeds. Also in contrast to many of Huling's prior releases, ANCESTRAL WATERS puts a heavier emphasis on acoustic instrumentation. Synthesizers are present, but are relinquished to an almost unnoticeable role in the backdrop. Besides Huling's melancholy flute tones, these sonic panoramas gravitate around guitar strumming, piano and nature sounds. With its strong organic hues and serene melodies, the music of this album will bring listeners peace while setting their imaginations a flight.

UNDER DESERT SKIES BY JOHN HULING
When John Huling sets out to paint a musical portrait of the Native Southwest, he not only manages to capture the tone and mood of life amongst the canyons, he does it with style.
