Album Notes
"If you love the Earth, soulful music, and helping people in need, then you should buy this CD. Cool sounds, inspiring lyrics, and the proceeds go to a very worthy cause. Highly recommended!" - John Paulus. John played blues with the best of them, John Mayal and Canned Heat.

Watchers of the Wood is really very good...
...only listened once so far - but thought 'For Everyone' and 'Hyla' were awesome... the title track blew me away (very softly, like a feather).

Peace & Love

"Bluegrass Unlimited" Choose my song, Wish upon a star,recorded by the Bluegrass Ramblers, review from the January 2004 issue.

"One of the strongest entries was the song, wish upon a star" Wow, That's my song! And to be singled out as one of the strongest entries, gives me hope as a singer, songwriter.

Guthrie Thomas a well know name in the folk world has given me much incouragement and hope. He has over 16 cd's released over the years.

Soulful !
Riddle writes songs about life using environmental metaphors that gives his lyrics more depth. Another prevailing theme of his songs is that changes can be difficult but in the end things will work out. This eleven-track collection is mainly folk rock but flows into a number of other tuneful directions. Watchers of the Wood has additional musicians who play rock instruments such as the electric guitar, bass and drums to give Phil's songs a fuller sound. Other tracks include string instruments, the Dobro, a Celtic Harp, flute and horns. These extra instruments add diverse textures and tones to Riddle's crisp vocals and acoustic guitar based songs. My favorite tracks happened to be the more up-tempo songs. 'Don't Say It Again' features some fancy guitar work and catchy vocal inflections. The song has a country flair blending with a solid rock sound. 'A La Mode' is a jazzy treat topped off with witty lyrics. Kentuck has created a soulful CD filled with warmth, humor and hope and all profits from its sale will be donated to charity.


songs that make you think about what we are doing to the earth.
songs that take you back to another place and time.close your eyes and see the trees,birds.smell the grass all wanders of hurts to see what man can destroy in a blink of an eye.john m. riddle


heartfelt and soulful
Gentle songs with heartfelt and poetic lyrics, expressing a caring soul who loves nature, and beautiful melodies and arrangements. Kentuck's voice is mellow and full of sincere feeling, and listening to this CD is heart-touching and uplifting.


Your heart will thank you!
Your heart will thank you for spending your money wisely. If you need a song that inspires hope, happiness, and thoughfulness; then "Watchers of the Wood" is your cd. I have listened to the whole cd at least three times a day since I received it. It's a briliantly recorded cd that will make you feel at a happy ease. Excellent!

Good Causes Good Music
Watchers of the Wood is sweet & filled with Spirit, it's a peaceful & good thing to hear it. It's also got enough to get you up to shake it down, to flip that frown into a smile, and make the browns & greens of the woods into all the colours imaginable...

Emergence Music

“Watchers of the wood” is a tonic for the heart and ears,
“Watchers of the wood” is a tonic for the heart and ears, each song is full of lovely lyrical prose dancing to wonderful melodies, Kentucks voice has a depth that will touch your heart. The music arrangements, recording and production of this CD are first class. Well done.


Beautiful music from the heart of Kentuck. My 2 personal favorites: "Parting of the Ivy" and "A La Mode"
I'm hoping that there will be more music from this guy.
Highly recommended.
