SIMPLISTIC, BUT BEAUTIFUL

WHAT A PURE AND HONEST FEELING ALBUM IS WHAT I USE TO DESCRIBE AN ALBUM FROM CANADIAN SINGER SONGWRITER WANDA GRONHOVD AND HER ALBUM CALLED “SHIFTING SANDS” THE FIRST SONG ON THIS AMAZINGLY AND RAW AND NATURAL FEELING ALBUM IS CALLED “SHIFTING SANDS” AND THE FIRST TRACK IS CALLED “NO MORE WORDS” AND WANDA AND HER VOCALS ARE SIMPLY AMAZING AND VERY NATURAL. THE FIRST SOUND THAT I HEARD WAS AN ALMOST JOAN BAEZ SOUND TO IT. A FRESH AND VERY NATURAL FEEL TO IT. WANDA HAS THAT TREMENDOUS SONGWRITING ABILITY THAT SPEAKS TO YOU, AND SINGS WITH PURE PASSION AND CONVICTIONS ARRIVING FROM HER HEART. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “I COULD NOT SPEAK FOR MYSELF” WANDA DISPLAYS HER AFFECTIONS THROUGH VOCALS IN AN ALMOST ANGELIC APPROACH AND REALLY IS A SOOTHING SENSATION TO HEAR ON EACH SONG. AS I LISTENED TO THE ALBUM THE NEXT SONG CALLED “GRIEF” WANDA BRINGS IN HER PURE HONESTY AND REALLY WHAT A TREMENDOUS GIFT OF WRITING AND THE ABILITY TO MAKE ONE FEEL HER EMOTIONS AND CONVICTIONS AND THOUGHTS AND BRING THEM TO A SONG, REALLY MAKES THE LISTENER GLUED TO THEIR SPEAKERS AS IT DID FOR ME. WANDA GRONHOVD, HAS THAT NATURAL ABILITY TO SING A SONG AND MAKE ONE HEAR WHAT SHE’S SINGING ABOUT, WHERE SHE SINGS ABOUT LIFE, AND THINGS THAT HAVE AFFECTED HER AND HER PASSION SINKS IN EVERY SONG THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL ALBUM. “OH SISTER” WANDA ALLOWS YOU TO HEAR THE FOLK AND TRUTHFUL SOUND THAT ARE SIMPLE BUT TRUTHFUL AND THOUGHTFULLY PROVOKED SONGS, AND VERY EMOTIONAL AT TIMES. WHAT MAKES A GOOD SONGWRITER IS ONE WHO WRITES FROM THE HEART WITH CONVICTIONS AND WANDA ON THIS AMAZING SOUNDING ALBUM BRINGS THESE ELEMENTS TO THE SURFACE ON EVERY SONG. “SHIFTING SANDS” WANDA SHOWS THE ELEMENT OF STORY TELLING IN THIS SONG AND WANDA AND MAKES ONE BRING IN YOUR EARS CLOSER TO HEAR THE COMPLETE STORY WORD FOR WORD. WANDA HAS A CONSISTENT ABILITY TO TRANSFORM HER WORDS INTO AMAZING AND VERY ENTERTAINING SONGS THAT ARRIVE FROM HER HEART. AS A WRITER THAT WRITES FROM MY HEART, I HEAR THIS ON ALL OF HER AWESOME SONGWRITING AND SUPERB VOCAL RANGE THAT IT SO SIMPLISTIC, BUT VERY FULLFILLING AS A LISTENER TO HER SONGS. “THANKS PAST ME” WANDA AND HER BAND ARE SUPERIOR IN LENDING IN THEIR FLAVOR INTO HER SONGS AS THEY UTILIZE THE BANJO AND THE DOBRO THAT COMPLIMENT WANDA’S TREMENDOUS AND FLAVORFUL STYLE IN HER SINGING AND HER TOTAL MUSICALITY. “UNEVEN FOOTING” ADDS A FULL ARRAY OF ELECTRIC GUITARS TO THE MIX WHICH PICKS UP THE TEMPO AND ADDS TO WANDA AND HER UPLIFTING VOCALS. “WHERE ARE YOU GOING” THE LAST TRACK ON THIS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL ALBUM, WANDA USES HER OUTSTANDING VOICE MAKE THIS ALBUM AN EASY CHOICE. WANDA HAS AN INCREDIBLE VOCAL RANGE AND LENDS TO THIS REALLY SUPERB EXAMPLE OF FINE MUSIC AND SONGWRITING. HER VOCALS ARE REALLY SUPERB AND ONE THAT ISN’T HEARD OF IN SOME OF THE MUSIC THAT IS CURRENTLY BEING PLAYED ON THE RADIO, BUT IN MY OPINION WNDA GRONHOVD NEEEDS TO BE HEARD, FOR HER INCREDIBLE MUSIC AND HER AWESOME VOCALS AND SIMPLISTIC MUSIC WITH VALUE AND MEANING. MANY THANKS TO WANDA FOR ALLOWING ME TO HEAR SUCH A SUPERB ALBUM AND BEING PART OF HER AMAZING MUSICAL JOURNEY AND HOPEFULLY THE “SHIFTING SANDS’ WILL PREVAIL IN WANDAS DIRECTION AND BRING HER MUSIC TO THE EARS OF RADIO AND THOSE OF US, LIKE ME THAT CRAVE HONESTY AND PURE MUSIC LIKE WANDA GRONHOVD HAS TO OFFER US.

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. with over 30 years experience. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry, writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and be exposed to their craft. As of date I have written well over 180 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists, but all in all my wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry and with my "Positive " music posts through my writing about them and reviewing their album always in a "Positive" forum.
