Customer Reviews


This album is pure authentic beauty that will move you deeply. Rhiannon's voice has the ability to reach into your deepest soul. She will soothe you, thrill you, shock you, inspire you, bring you to tears, restore your hope... her collaborations here with Otmaro Ruiz, Alex Acuña, Abraham Laboriel and Jetro Da Silva are incredible, and their connection and communication is truly...breathtaking.


Rhiannon's newest CD Spontaneous, is as it's name suggests, a fully improvised set of music pulled out of the ether with the help of a band of like minded masters of music. It is difficult to fathom that there is a human container for this much skill and vision and drive and faith in the moment but here she is...Rhiannon. On this CD you'll hear musical stories of rebirth, renewal, of remembering our true origins; each one shepherded to fruition with patience and curiosity and the authority of one who relishes her job as usher in the grand and mysterious theater of The Moment. This stellar band's trust and enjoyment are evident, abundant and a joy to hear. Thank you Rhiannon for being yourself so fully in your music, and by your example inviting us all to take a few more chances in life.

one glitch - the download of my favorite track - Sunshine - jumps to the next song with 4:30 left to go..what gives Itunes?- please fix this...I want to know how the song ends!!

Authentic - Virtuosic - Trusting Improvisation

I've been listening to Spontaneous in my car, like so many people being too busy to sit down and really listen as it deserves. The past few weeks have been a difficult time for me, and I remember arriving at work early in the morning after hearing the CD for the first time.

I stopped for a moment coming into the door of my workplace and thought, "What is this unfamiliar feeling inside me? Could it be joy? Is that what this is?"

It's quite astonishing really, how much hope and joy flooded into me the first time I heard these songs.

All the musicians jump into the improvisations with so much trust in each other, so much support, and then take wonderful fearless risks with breathtaking results.

The world needs more of this kind of music, reminding us to collaborate, to care for one another, to dare to speak the truth, to trust our instincts, to live authentically. Or at least I know that I do. I'm so glad to have this CD to remind me how I want to live.
