ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Magic Garden

Sapien Whole World Music pays homage to the diversity of human musical expression with it's contemporary arrangements composed with musical instruments from around the globe. The melodies of Native American Flute intertwine
with the soaring strains of cello and guitar, didjereedoo, silver flute and global rhythm traditions. Born around campfires across the continents, this music is presented to honor both our indigenous elders and the place of harmony with all living things that lives in each of us.

Bill Pound Biography

For Bill Pound, being born and raised in Macon, Georgia has had a profound influence on his musical upbringing. Besides teaching himself harmonica at age 3, Bill's first musical instruction began under Roy Justineau starting with trumpet then later baratone. Macon's heritage of musical diversity, from Little Richard to Otis Redding,
to the Allman Brothers Band has inspired several generations. This is evident in the songs he has
written, recorded, and released on CDs.
Perhaps it is this heritage, coupled with twenty-five years of commitment to his art, that has made
Bill the entertainer he is today. His years of touring experience allow him not only to sense a crowd's
desires, but to give him the ability to respond. From hard rock-and-roll to soft country, both the
extremes and the middle ground belong to Bill when he's on stage. The fact that Bill has chosen to
open for acts as diverse as Joe Cocker, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Buffet, Doc and Merle Watson,
and Spyro Gyra; and that he has performed with Jonathan Edwards, Greg Allman, Richie Havens,
and Mickey Thomas (Starship) bears further witness to his flexibility and broad appeal.
Groups that Bill has been in are "The Charades", "The Boogie Chillun'", "Orgon Zable", "Uncle
Pleasant", "The Macon Jammers", "Rogers, Pound, and Greene", "Delta", "Pound and Rogers", and
"Stewart-Tussing".
A turning point in Bill's career came when he recorded "Flute Music For Relaxation". Not only
was a different avenue opened up, but it took Bill in a more spiritual direction. This sets the stage
for more instrumental works as he brings all the tools necessary to express his musical vision, both
through his adaptations of other artists' songs as well as his own extremely accessible catalog of
original material. At this point Bill's CDs include "Flute Music For Relaxation", a spontaneous,
flow of consciousness recording, "Spirit Gift", 10 beautifully mellow instrumentals on guitar and
silver flute, "Song of Life", 10 vocal tunes backed by acoustic guitar, "Music Is A Treasure", 14
upbeat full-production songs including two instrumentals, "Magic Garden", with World Music group Sapien,
and "Spirit Of Christmas", with jazz pianist Rebecca Windham.
Some notable recent appearances for Bill have been Centennial Olympic Park (Atlanta),
Spoleto Picclo Festival (Charleston, S.C.), New Year's Eve Jam and live radio performance
hosted by Max and Judy Fowler (Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia), a writing/performing
escape to Akumal, Mexico, and numerous appearances with Sapien (Frank Chambliss and Count
M'Butu) in Atlanta area schools booked by "Young Audiences".
Bill expresses his considerable talents through a variety of voices...from electric, acoustic or slide
guitar, silver and Native American flutes, harmonica, and vocals. Love of music, family and friends,
nature, and living life and a strong faith are the forces that inspire, motivate and guide Bill. Whatever
the occasion may be, look forward to an exciting live performance from Bill Pound.

Mark Boles

Fantastic! Goes from Soothing Flute to Primal Percussion
This is a great CD from start to finish. From the instrumentation -- including native american flute, didgereedoo, guitar, cello, and many hand drums and other unusual percussion -- to the beautiful songs, this is definitely one for your collection. Most of my friends who have heard it wanted to know how to get a copy. (www.sapienmusic.com)

This is a great CD to put in and los yourself for over an hour! I definitely reccomend it!
