In Their Words: "Patrick really knows how to find the essence of a song. His cover is a full on Springsteen-banger complete with piano and bells. It's an honor to have such a talented artist cover our song, and it's all the more satisfying given that he is a friend and he has offered nothing but love and support to Free Energy from the start. He is an exceptional young man! Here's to Patrick Stickles!" -- Free Energy's Paul Sprangers.
In Their Words: "'Close and Closer' is about human interactions -- about all of the invisible connections between us and how we impact people and never know it ... and also about the desire to be so close to someone that you almost want to become a part of them." -- Singer Rachel Dannefer
According to FAME Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange, if Harmonious Wail “doesn't set your toe to tapping and put a smile on your face, you should probably get medication." With smoldering vocals laced in with jazzy mandolin and guitar lines reminiscent of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, and an infectious blend of continental jazz, swing, gypsy music, and vocal melodies, Harmonious Wail dares its audiences to describe it in words. Winners of multiple MAMA awards including Best Jazz CD, Best Ensemble Vocalists of the Year, Favorite Jazz Band, Best World Artist, Best World Song, and Best Instrumentalist, Harmonious Wail has caught numerous listeners by total surprise during its more than 20-year history.
In Their Words: "Our song 'Land of Gathering' is influenced by childhood nostalgia and the rediscovery of metaphysical spaces only reached through an appreciation for the imagination." -- Singer Matthew Cook.
