ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Skinwalkers is a name given to Navajo witches who, according to Navajo legend, are capable of changing from human to animal form and back again. Though Skinwalkers (the band) may lack this physical talent, their music has the ability to transform through numerous ideas and musical styles.

Skinwalkers create smart melodic pop music. Headed by songwriter and guitarist John Feodorov and vocalist Gina Sala, Skinwalker's songs address the human need for meaning and identity. Feodorov's 1/2 Navajo and 1/2 Euro-american background gives his songs a unique perspective. His music has been featured in the documentary film "Bringing It Back Home," directed by Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals). He was also featured in the PBS series "Art for the 21st Century."

The CD was produced by Lori Goldston, who heads her own group, The Black Cat Orchestra (also available at CD Baby). Lori has played cello for some of the most talented names in pop music such as Nirvana, David Byrne, and John Doe.

John Feodorov and Skinwalkers drummer Mark Reynolds have teamed up again to form a new band, Ecce Hobo. Please visit www. eccehobo.com to hear new music!

"A good album reviewer, it is said, is as efficient at placing an artist in an established genre as a tenured librarian is at placing a Dewey-decimalized book on its proper shelf. What confidence I had in my reviewing abilities before I received this debut album from Seattle's Skinwalkers was just denied renewal. "Citing influences from Ray Davies to his Navajo heritage to Middle-Eastern folk music, John Feodorov - Skinwalkers' guitarist, vocalist, organist, accordion player, and songwriter - would seem to subscribe to the salad bowl as opposed to the melting pot theory of our modern society. The components in this most-tasty debut do not muddle and leach flavors from one another like some sort of over-boiled, middle-American soup. Rather, from song to song, you will find fresh and distinct sonic tidbits that stimulate your aural palette in ways Feodorov's declared influences would lead you to expect, but also in ways that suggest this five-piece had a number of secret ingredients when it went into the studio. From Feodorov's David Byrne-ish vocals on "Returning", to the Boiled In Lead, medieval touches of "The Song of Babylon", to Gina Salá doing vocals on one of the prettiest songs I've heard in ages, "In The Sunlight", your appetite will not only be gratified, but you will feel well-traveled when this album is done playing. So sit back and enjoy. For my part - although I would welcome another category-defying surprise like this - I'm going to go investigate the tuition and schedules for some remedial genre courses. I must maintain some vestige of Professional ability if I am to keep this gig."Ned Rust, The Rocket 1996

Fax Sheet Five "A very appealing Seattle-based quintet that takes their inspiration from roots-oriented worldbeat but produce something totally modern and cutting edge. I particularly like the organic quality of the disc, capturing something that's truly alive and vital."
