ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is volume 2 of the critically acclaimed series Rev. Yolanda's Country Gospel Kirtan.
Following Review by Bill Turner (former lead guitarist for Bill Haley and The comets):
"Rev. Yolanda's voice is expressive, believable...and just plain great!....cleverly weaving elements of the traditional eastern tabla, combining it with gentle bluegrass instrumentation, superb vocal harmonies, stark bare-bones electric guitar...and making it ALL work! All 12 songs on this CD are "A" material...there is not a weak cut on this whole album. Rev Yolanda is the best "Contemporary Christian" songwriter I've heard in decades!"
This comment from a fan:
"Dear Reverend Yolanda. I was the security guard who bought your CD. I am really enjoying your music although I am an atheist. I listen to it several times a day. All the best. Cheers. jms"

Rev. Yolanda's Country Gospel Kirtan vol. 2-Step Back combines Country Gospel, Native American, and Hindu Kirtan music with Interfaith lyrics, and the occasional House Music beat. Pedal Steel, Acoustic Guitar, Tabla, Native American Flute, Brazilian Samba, Old English, Lush vocals and harmonies with a touch of chanting.

S/He brings hir message of Non Duality into every event by merging GLBT and Mainstream Popular Culture with Integrated Spirituality. With a soulful voice, a message of oneness, great costumes, and a wicked sense of humor, hir shows and CDs emphasize love, beautiful melodies, interesting stories, and a bit of inspiration. www.yolanda.net/audio

Excellent review from Transgender Forum by Pamela Degroff
I found this great review by Pamela Degroff on Rev. Yolanda and wanted to share it: "The outstanding tracks are Somebody Save Me (full band sound, laid back yet somewhat bluesy), and Let Go Of Grievances (country funk, but with a diversity of instrumentation, and overall the best production moment on the entire project.)
Musically, Country Gospel Kirtan Vol. 2 Step Back is one of the biggest steps Rev. Yolanda has ever taken. While the Interfaith theology might not be to everyone’s personal taste or beliefs, Yolanda’s dynamic as a musician and as a deeply spiritual person are not in conflict, nor are they diminished in any way. Both attributes of who Rev. Yolanda is as a person compliment each other greatly. " Full review here: http://yolanda.net/country_gospel_kirtan_vol._2
