ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Critical Acclaim for "Flying Canoe":

"...Björklund and Rickenbaugh handle the vocals superbly, with gorgeous tight harmonies... The material ranges from the madrigal-like a capella "To the Water" to the poignant, haunting traditional-style ballad "Father of Grief" to the contemporary folk rock sound of "Rocks and Razors". Neil Björklund's lyrics are compelling, intelligent, a cut above the usual singer-songwriter fare. The whole project is impeccably produced and arranged with guitar, piano, whistles and various percussion. An exceptional, all-original debut! Don't miss it."
-- Victory Music Review (January '97)

"One of the ten best acoustic/folk albums of 1996"
-- Kobi Lucas, KLCC 89.7 FM, Eugene, Oregon

"Flying Canoe--the debut album by this trio is nothing short of amazing. Tight vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, tin whistle, harmonica, drums, and hand percussion and lots of love for folk music make their homonymous release a TRUE gem that is HIGHLY recommended. A MUST for the lover of good folk/acoustic music."
-- Stavros Moschopoulos, FAO CASA Gazette, Rome, Italy

"Neil has a poet's talent when it comes to songwriting, creating images that linger long after the music ends. . . 'Flying Canoe' is a self-contained musical adventure perfect for both the world explorer and armchair traveler. It is the right soundtrack for all your journeys." -- R. Perch, Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange


The recording features 12 songs by Björklund. He is joined on the recording by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Allison Rickenbaugh and pianist and percussionist Bruce Newhouse. The trio is backed by magician bassist Mark Schneider (best known for his work with jazz and bluesman Don Latarski), dynamite jazz/rock/African drummer Charlie Dogget, versatile cellist Kate Whitlock, and Eugene's vocal wonders Mark Alan and Laura Kemp. The recording was engineered, mixed and mastered at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Oregon, by sound wizard Bill Barnett.
