Acoustic Souls Wing
StoneWall Society Pride
In The Arts Awards Received
2002 Pride In The Arts Awards - Genre Award for the song "Shepherd"
Kadie O and the Light
Review By; Len
This group was originally introduced to me as Acoustic Souls, as you may well know them. If not, you should make it a point to become familiar with their excellent music. Beautiful vocals, lyrics which touch and inspire, and
fantastic accompaniment make "Red October" a musical treat! Kadie O and Vance Gloster have outdone themselves with this work. Self described as Coffee House Gospel, Red October well surpassed my expectations. A lover of all music, I was and am very impressed with the new direction these artists have taken.
Strength is a strong part of the wonder of this music. That strength and the messages delivered in "Red October", are universal. I have played the CD for a few non-Christian friends and it was very well received. The message is not preached nor pounded, rather shared. In that the strength is increased.
My favorite is Shepherd, very catchy, and reminiscent of days as a child in Bible School. Delivered beautifully vocally, strong lyrics, excellent musical accompaniment, and imagery which would touch most, make Shepherd cling like a warm blanket on a cold winter day.
The most amazing thing for me about "Red October" is the fact this is a Ministry related CD. I have other music which is religious in nature, so the theme is not unnatural to me. However, this CD is more personal, more adaptable than most music released in the "Gospel" theme. By that again I mean more universal, accepting and easily enjoyed in most venues and by more people. Those who dismiss Gospel/religious music will be making a grave mistake by counting "Red October" in that group. The songs especially Shepherd are geared toward and part of the GLBT community, but at the same time not restrictive in that vein either. I highly recommend adding this to your library, a musical must! And just good soul food.....
