Album Notes
UPDATE: 11-06-2004
It had been a while since I logged into our CDBaby account to see how the CD is doing... I have to say I find tears in my eyes. The reviews that people have written here have truly moved my soul. Dear friends thank you for supporting us in our creative efforts. I can't tell you the joy it brings us to know that someone has made a connection with our music. I only pray that some day we can gather the funds again and make another CD...

Much Love,
Jeffrey & Jill Dalton
Lotus in the Mudd

This CD is the fruit of six years of struggling against the part of ourselves that was born and raised dependent upon material things. After six years of distraction, in only one months time, we quit our jobs, mortgaged our house, bought a small digital recording studio setup, recorded, and produced this CD!

Through much sacrifice and heartache we have recorded five of our original songs, sustained only by the grace and mercy of God. We offer this as a gift from our hearts and souls to yours. We pray that through expressing our struggles in our music we can give strength and inspiration to others who are struggling in the path of faith.

Because this is our first CD we do not know what kind of response to expect so we offer our web site as a channel of dialogue for those interested. We invite you to visit our site and contact us with your thoughts on this project. It is our earnest prayer to meet other musicians and collaborate on future projects. All the beauty contained herein is from God the Most High.

Only the mistakes are our own.
Sallam ~Jeffrey & Jill Dalton

Update: This Cd was recorded in Frankfort, KY. We have since moved to Highwood ,IL where Jeffrey is serving as the webmaster for the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States.

Mudd in your eye? Don't worry it will feel good.
Jeffery and Jill Dalton have absolutely out done themselves in Lotus In The Mudd, Visceral Melee. The music has a pop flare and melodic entrancement that echoes of peace in your head even after you are finished listening to their CD. It is a definitive example of what religion and music can achieve, pure harmony.

Lotus in the Mudd
Absolutely stunning! We need more music of this quality. Emotionally moving and deeply spiritual.
Thank you Viseral Melee.


sweet stuff
moving, sweet melodies; strong, sweet voices; powerful, sweet words, just wish I had more!

Dawn Garrott

Listener's longing for the divine given shape in sound
Magical voice, urgent lyrics, and evocative instrumentals give shape in sound to the listener's longing for the divine. From Visceral Melee, connection. Heartfelt thanks!

Joyce Montenegro

I cried, missing KY at home feeling since i have left..comforting
The spiritual connection IS behind the words and the gentle down home flavor of Kentucky bluegrasses touched my heart and let me soar. God Bless you!

George Archer

The Mood of meditation and reverence is QUITE unique: BUY THIS NOW
Except that the CD is short, it is flawless in every way. The mood, tone, layering of voices and instruments will pull you in and what you end up doing is listening to it over and over again. At one point the tone is sort of dark, then almost joyful in an almost old fashion "mountain
music" echoing the chanters line (lining). But it is just the style, for this is not a bluegrass cd in any way. the most reverant Bahai music since the World Congress recordings and Seals and Crofts. And to have this project come out of KY was indeed a blessing to rural American Bahai's. Jimmy Seals & Dash Crofts NEEDS to hear this: PURE

Paula in Liverpool

Exceptional, thank you, thank you
Thank you for making this CD and sharing your gifts (and thanks RadioNUR for the link). The songs (every one) are so beautiful, the voices, the intonation, it's amazing. I remember thinking it would be nice if the sirens in the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou" would sing more, your songs more than fulfill that desire. My new wish is to hear more of you! Best wishes in all your efforts.

Great instrumentals and overall production
Jeffrey Dalton is an inspiration. Having combined great production and singing, cd cover layout and a host of other elements, he has brought us Visceral Melee. A unique album celebrating faith and struggle and the joy of finding one's path in life. Though this album ends all too soon, you can always hit the "repeat" button.

Michael Eissinger: General Manager radioNUR

modern religious pop
radioNUR was happy to feature this CD for an entire month, during 2002. Creative, accessible and original -- all around a great package.

If there is anything wrong with this CD it's just that it's too short...


Exceeding beauty...
The beauty of the words were only exceeded by the voices, in turn exceeded by the instruments. Too short, but thank you.
