ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A powerful collection of haunting beauty and strength.

"This was a wonderful spontaneous event between Ralf and I - nothing was written ahead of time. No preparation was done other than to try not to get in the way of what flowed through us as we improvised. The songs are here as they came to us, with almost no alteration. The 'lyrics' are not words as much as communications wedded to extemporaneous melodies. Later, additional guitar parts and vocals were added sparingly and from the same inner space.

There is healing here, there is peace, there is joy and laughter, there is power. It is the inarticulate language of Spirit and a musical blending of Souls - a feast of song."


LENEDRA CARROLL

Visionary, singer and performer Lenedra Carroll grew up on a homestead in rural Alaska in the nineteen-fifties. She has sung for many heads of state and world leaders, and for audiences in over a dozen countries. She has sung at the State of the World Forum, at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II, and at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway.

Her work has been heralded by the likes of Gloria Steinem, Alice Walker, and Deepak Chopra. Steinem described Beyond Words as "a simple and spontaneous combustion that is, indeed, beyond words, beyond genre, and beyond wonderful."

Ms. Carroll is also an accomplished businesswoman, a respected author and a leading humanitarian. Her television appearances include Oprah Winfrey, The Today Show, and Good Morning America.

Her unique management style and powerful business intuitions led her to enjoy great success in her fifteen-year career in the music industry. Many of her most profound insights have been proven in the development and management of the career of multi-platinum recording artist Jewel.
