...a note from Laughing Bird

Dear Friend & fellow music lover,

Our music lifestyle is a journey from the heart, driven by our love of new places, new people and new expriences. Thanks to you, our musical adventure together has taken us to all 50 states and many other countries since we first started singing together in the mid ‘70s. We appreciate your purchases, contacts and referrals that have helped us to continually take the next step.

Some people buy two or three of our CDs at a time to get the FREE CDs to give as gifts. Others take advantage of our wholesale prices to resell our CDs in catalogs, natural food stores, shops and businesses involving massage, yoga, tai chi, new age, etc. (Wherever positive music is sold.) We are happy to be able to offer FREE CD specials and quantity discount prices. All our albums are longer than average ... three of them are as long as many double albums. We like giving more than your money’s worth!

Syncronicity has been a good compass for us through the years and we are grateful for people like you who have played such an important role in keeping this music flowing.

Yours for a song,

Tupelo and Janey Wing Kenyon

Touch Another's Soul from Your Heart Space

Hey there you two. Watched the new DVD yesterday, "Celebrate the Journey." You guys are fun. But better than that, when the world is still and listening, you guys have an incredible ability to touch another's soul from your heart space. It's great! ! ! - Trish Sanders, Atlanta, GA

The Message Part
the Music Part

Hey, you guys are a find, for sure. How to say this next part diplomatically... There are many people making music that's meant to be "uplifting" that have lovely intentions, but their music, for me, doesn't quite keep up. I have at this point played everything you sent me except for the DVD. I appreciate the excellent, quality production. Plus the fact that both of you sing and play well. It really does all work together.

You two have the message part and the music part, and that can be, IMHO, a bit hard to find. So, all of that as a prelude to also saying "thank you!" And I am so excited there's a 2nd Wooden voices disc - yippee!! I write, and it's lovely to have good instrumental music because I can't play music with words when I'm trying to, basically, channel.

I just checked my online banking for other reasons and saw your charge. That's not much for ALL that music! <grin> I must be a powerful creator of lovely things. And I thank you so much for being the wonderful part of that that you are!! - Katherine N., California

Bill Mann & Deb Suzanne

Radiant Blessings

Thank you for sharing your abundant thoughts and love. I am always delighted to hear from you, and your messages tend to leave me with radiant blessings. Accept my gratitude and love in all your radiant magnificence. Neslyn Watson-Druee.

Connie Gehl

Filled Me with Strength

It was really nice to read some of your articles and to hear some instrumental music and songs. I am feeling so grateful and happy for all the life-enhancing ideas, songs and music you have offered TO WHOEVER IS INTERESTED. It shows real personal development - to share the knowledge THAT WE ALL ARE DIVINE BEINGS, feeling free to help others open their eyes too, not being blinded with a wish to earn! Thank You for letting me feel that it is possible to meet soul mates. I felt as I had visited some place filled with strong light life energy. And it filled me with strength. Thank you for that. May God showers His blessings over You! - Liana Lunte, Latvia

Lifting the Energy of the Universe

Hassles Melt Away and Only Harmony Remains

"Celestial Sounds" is great!!!!  I loved the cover!  We played it for Tai Chi class Saturday, and everyone loved it. I've been putting the CD on after the long, difficult days we've had of late, and your music instantly transports us to another place. All the hassles melt away and only harmony remains!  Thanks so much!  Your music has been a true blessing! - Dr. Martha Sarasua, Gulf Breeze, FL

The Songs Uplift Me and Restore My Faith

"Close as a Heartbeat": Whenever I'm feeling a little down in the mouth, listening to this CD takes me back to CoCo View on Roatan, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras, where I first met Janey and Tupe Kenyon. The emotions and love which generated the songs on this CD uplift me and restore my faith in that there are gentle, kind, loving people in the world. - Becky Dayhoff, TN

You'll Hear Songs
with Beautiful Messages
When You're Ready

Tupe and Janey, I just had to write and tell you how much I am appreciating you RIGHT NOW! You know how we often don't sit down and do that, even though we may be thinking of someone?  Well I'm doing it. I'm having a Laughing Bird Concert Night in my room tonight, and I went right from "Anthology" to "Close as a Heartbeat" to "Celestial Sounds." Anyways it's true how they say you'll hear the message or you'll learn the lesson when you're ready. I'm finding that with your songs, they have the most beautiful messages; many I hadn't noticed before.  Like "Go Slow", "Love is Who You Are", "All That We Take With Us", "Be Kind", "Do What You Love".  I absolutely love "Angels Around Us". (I can hear them smiling too.) Thank You for your music, your friendship, and your inspiration.  Loving you, Lauray Walsh, Roatan, Honduras

Feel the Heartbeat of Spirit as the Music Breathes You

"Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light" is like a smorgasbord of universes, and you come in and out of them like a dream without really noticing the movements. The music breathes with life and seems interactive instead of something you only hear with your ears. There are plenty of open spaces to allow the listener to participate with his own spiritual experience.  The rhythms blend into one another without forcing the listener into a structured little box. Instead, you are able to participate with the rhythmical changes with your own body rhythms, heartbeat and breath. Celestial Sounds allows you to become peaceful enough so you can feel the heartbeat of spirit as the music breathes you. It's a mental pick-me-up, an emotional breath of fresh air, and a spiritual massage. - Joe Correia, Hot Springs, AR

Vivacious, Refreshing, Different

Enthusiastic, vivacious, engaging, and fun-loving.  Wonderful! So refreshing to hear something different! - Jude Vardamis, Alva, FL

The Perfect Balance of Healing Serenity and Gentle Attentiveness in His Music

What a delight to have Tupelo's music playing in our clinic; somehow he created tunes that embody the perfect balance of healing serenity and gentle attentiveness in his music, that we strive for in our work. We all manage to breathe more deeply when his CDs are playing. - Amber Leigh Wolf, PhD, Director, Phoenix Healing Center, Longmont, CO

Fabulous and Joyful Experience

Lidia and I are amazed at the ability you guys have to concentrate and whip out creative projects. Your CD, "Celestial Sounds" is a masterpiece, Tupe. You hit a home run, my friend. You've got us wanting more, so don't stop. I just ran upstairs to get the CD and guess what? Ms. Lidia has taken it to work with her. Boy, nothing like pulling it right off my CD player and hogging it. How dare she bogart one of our prize CDs. Anyway, I wanted to dash off a note about the fabulous and joyful experience of hearing your music. Keep having a blast and pumping out those creations. We send lots of love and good vibrations your way. - Bruce Young, Kansas City

Sends Me Right Out of My Body in Nothing Flat

Your CD is WONDERFUL. I have absconded with it and poor Bruce can't find it, because it's in my car and I play it constantly during my hour (at least) in the car every day. It is great to meditate to ... (which I do not do while driving!) I contemplate to your Celestial Sounds CD often. Something extra wonderful happened one morning. An owl was hooting along to it while perched on our chimney. It was remarkable! That first cut especially sends me right out of my body in nothing flat. It's great. I am enjoying it immensely. Bruce really likes it too. I hope you are as proud of it as you deserve to be. - Lidia Young, Kansas City, KS

Brings in the Stillness of the Great Spirit

There are no words to communicate to you the depth and beauty of the sounds you have created.  I know so many will be touched with this special work.  Things are so crazy here, in the moment I am listening to the Celestial Sounds CD, and for the first time today, I feel at peace. God, Tupelo I have never heard such beautiful sounds. One thing I notice is that when I listen to it while I am working on the computer I really get my channels. I played it before I started and each time, I feel like it was my cloud or vehicle to access the material, or make it easier, clearer somehow. The CD is wonderful.  Perfect in every way. "Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light" is a work of universal art. It opens the mind to the quiet of the universe and brings in the stillness of the Great Spirit and allows doors to open that would have otherwise remained closed.  You are both a gift from spirit.  - Spirit Walker Standing, Gulf Breeze, FL

Sharing Spirit

Just a quick note to let you know I not only enjoy reading your emails, but also look forward to them. Thank you for sharing your Spiirt! Blessings! - MsLeo

Calming and Energizing

We just spent six days in the truck, driving cross-country, and your new CD, "Record-X," was the only one we listened to. We had 30 other CDs with us, but we loved yours so much, we listened to it over and over, never bothering to change. The music is calming and energizing, at the same time. We both love the voices, the songs and the arrangements. - Steve and Debbie Berry, WY

Music: Uplifting and Wonderful!

I just wanted to tell you how very much I appreciate all that you have written on your website.  My goodness!  I have learned so much already and your music is so uplifting and wonderful!  Thank you. Sincerely. - Lindy Sellers, Stanfield, NC

Rare Thing to
Write Your Own Songs

Different from anyone else! It's personalized. It's a rare thing to write your own songs and develop your own thing. You've brought that back. And the comedy is wonderful. - Robert Ferguson, Mission, TX

To Really Soar, Listen with Headphones

I absolutely loved Tupelo's first new age CD, "Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light." It's definitely in my top 5 CDs when you consider how much I use it during my meditation and relaxation periods. When I heard he was doing a follow-up CD called "Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light, Volume II," I was delighted. His second CD has surpassed my expectations times two. It too has moved into my top five. If you want to really soar, listen to the CD with your headphones. What a masterpiece. - Bryce E. Yarborough, Kansas City, KS

Shake it Up

Great musicians. Different ... not the same old thing. They really shake it up! And, Tupelo can play guitar like no other. - Kym S. Christopherson, Apache Junction, AZ

Smiles to My Face, Tears to My Eyes And Love to My Heart!!!

Hi you two ... just wanted you to know that I just finished watching the beautiful, wonderful, marvelous, uplifting DVD, "Celebrate the Journey." Wow! Tupe, great creation! Janey, love your humor, your hair and your heart!  I feel like you two are spiritual teachers for me through your music and your love. Now, is this because I already know and love you or because I am blessed to know, love AND appreciate your creative channels (all 108 of them)? Thank you for bringing smiles to my face, tears to my eyes and love to my heart!!! LOVE YOU! - Amber Wolf, Lyons, CO

Music to Calm Myself

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed listening to your music and watching your story on DVD. I listen to your CDs when I need music to calm myself. I have also read a lot of your articles - they came at a time that I needed good things to read. Thank you so much for the DVD all the CDs. Hugs, - Tacy Harris, Loveland, CO

Made My Heart Soar
(and other mushy stuff)

WOW! Just got the chance to sit down with just little old lonesome me to watch and listen to your new DVD. Thank You! You made my heart soar, brought tears to my eyes and all that mushy stuff. It was awesome! Not just the stories, pics and music, but to see you guys in action was truly great. Just want to express how great it was to be in your world for those couple of hours and see your smiling faces. Love You Guys, - Landon Roberts, Durango, CO

Puts Me Back in Tune
When I Get Out of Sorts

Hi Tupelo and Janey, Just thought I would give you some feedback on your Celestial Sounds CD's. I absolutely LOVE them! Volume 1 is my favorite, but I do like Volume 2 also.  It is so soothing, and puts me back "in tune" when I get out of sorts. I play it just about daily. I was at the Kryon Discovery Series in Sept. That is where I saw you and got the CD's. Also wanted to let you know that I took a picture of you, Tupe, with my friend, Judy. Anyway, you were facing her, and there is an orb right in the middle of the two of you!  Also, there were many orbs throughout the room, on the dais, all around, and the ones that have a dark background appear bluish and sparkley! Just thought, I'd share. You two have a wonderful vibration, no wonder there were orbs! Looking forward to hearing you again sometime ...soon! Sincerely, in Love and Light, - Judy Regulski

One of God's Most Blissful

Janey, As I read your "Inspired on Purpose" article in Miami with the sun basking my face, I give gratitude and reflect that I experience you as one of God's most blissful children on earth. Thank you for including me in your circle. Continue to have a perfect day. Neslyn Watson-Druee, Florida

No Limit

Janey's energy has no limit. Tupelo's guitar picking will stand up to the famed greats. - John Evans, Yuma, AZ

Love the Abraham Influenced Songs

I love the Abraham influenced songs.  Every Abraham fan should hear those! Also the one on aging was a hoot with the "heat to light" and "balding" wisdom. Love it!  You two are just wonderful.  BTW, it is great to see your "Wingin' It" book on CDs too. I gather from the cover there is some music woven in there, so that will be a listening treat.  - Kimberly Soltero, Jericho, TN

Your "Celestial Sounds" CD is a breath of heaven - it really helps to listen to it when the stress gets high. Thanks again for the beautiful music - you are really special people. - Judy Lund, Homer, Alaska

Warmth and Energy

Thanks so much for your inspiring newsletters and your generosity.  Whenever I read your writings, I am transported right back to your sharing and gifts at Unity one Sunday not that long ago, to all the warmth and energy and more that came pouring out of you both, right into my heart. Thanks so much. (A fan), Ginny Jones, Boulder, CO

Focus, Meditate and Act

Janey, It was my pleasure to meet Tupelo. I really like your music. Ever since I met Tupelo and went into your web page, I started to meditate on a lot of things. In doing so, I was able to get through a different road in life.  I was able to come across the book, "As a Man Thinketh" and read it.  I am also reading "Acres of Diamonds" by Dr. Russell Conwell. These books were relayed to me by your web page.  I am not trying to get rich, but I am changing my way of thinking - that everything is possible in life as long as you focus, meditate and act. Thank you so much for the regular notes in your "Inspired on Purpose" newsletter. - Ricky Borrego, El Paso,TX

Your Music Takes Me
to a State of Bliss

I have been enjoying your music and all the content on your site. I always listen to Celestial Sounds 2 while doing my reading and keep it on my desktop, as I find your music takes me to a state of bliss!  Thank you for all the information and love that emanates through your music, emails, articles and all the content you offer!  Wishing you a day full of wonder. - Kathy

Thanks for Enlightening
Our Lives

I just want to thank you for your wonderful CD. Remember Janey, I told you I lost my mom and every time I hear your song. "All That We Take With Us," I cry. It's so beautiful! When we get home I know it will have the same affect on my daughter as she misses her Nanna. I love this CD. Thanks for enlightening our lives. YOU'RE WONDERFUL. I think that song should be given to all grievers. We played your tape the whole way here from Puerto Pennassco, so we almost know all of the words. Thanks again. You both are sooo wonderful how you cheer everyone up. God Bless -  Marg and Steve

Music for Yoga,
Deeper Relaxation,
and Fine Accompaniment
to Dinner with Friends

Lets see, the truth is that Celestial Sounds is truly motivational.  If I ever don't feel like starting my yoga early in the morning, all I have to do is turn on the music and the first song draws me into my practice.  By rhythmically combining breathing through the Sun Salutation to the perfect count of the first cut (Rainbow Hue), I find myself awake, warmed up and ready to move into the Moon series for the second cut.  The tinkle twinkle breaks between the cycles of cut 1 provide the perfect rest and inner focus times before moving into the subsequent rounds of the flowing sun salutation asana. After the first two cuts and thus completing the sun salutations and moon series, I then easily flow into other postures. Whenever I'm ready to rest in the corpse pose, the music is gentle accompaniment to deeper relaxation. Thanks again for helping to ease me back into the movements. It really does help so much as it provides a wonderful paced warm-up. Here's to energy flow!

Celestial Sounds is also fine accompaniment to dinner with friends as we have experienced with Gerbrig and Harvey.  Imagine candles, flowers, friends, food and fine music.  What a sacred communion of sharing we had! The energy of the music seemed to envelop us and assist us in creating harmony. - Kim Soltero, the Crystal sailboat, Caribbean

The Spice of Life

Variety is the spice of life and Laughing Bird is very spicy! - Betty Peters, Mission, TX

Meaningful Lyrics for Marriage Enrichment Weekend

We have loved the "Heartbeat " recording so much (tape) that we have worn it out. You may remember that a few years ago, after seeing you in concert in Alaska, I used your music in a Marriage Enrichment weekend where we played your songs and spoke about just what the lyrics evoked. It was a most meaningful weekend that 10 couples attended. That added more meaning to your work for us.  Looking forward to hearing more originals and hopefully seeing you in concert again. - Genny & Alan Leathers, ME

Takes Me to Another Plane, Another World

I do my yoga to your Celestial Sounds CD everyday. I just love it. You have really hit it perfect with that one, I reckon. The sound you have created really takes me to another plane, another world, and it feels so peaceful and in harmony there. So thank you very much for that. It's a very special CD to us both and it definitely gets well used and well loved. Kim Charteris-Wright, Duneeden, New Zealand

A Very Special Team

"When Our Ship Comes In" from the Anthology album makes me smile 'cause Tupe and Janey's ship came in when they met and combined their extraordinary talents to create a very special team which will live forever through their wonderful music.- Becky Dayhuff, TN

Making a Difference
A Key Part of My Life

We meet in that lovely little hotel near Chiang Mai in Thailand when you and Janey gave us that impromptu performance in the restaurant, complete with spoons!  I was the guy from the UK who really appreciated your thoughts and songs and said that you seemed like very spiritual people!  Well what a surprise to find your web site and to receive such uplifting emails and music on such a regular basis.

I would just like to say a personal thank you for all your thoughts and links they have been a key part of my life since we met. I have to say as a former atheist with a scientific background, that trip to Thailand changed my life, and I am very happy to say that my Spirtitual new self is such a nicer place to be.

I have shared many of your thoughts with my friends and family, and your emails are a really easy way to send positive thoughts around. I have worked in "IT" all my life, and can see a lot of negativity with modern technology, so its great to see somebody using it in a positive way

Once again thanks for your "Inspired on Purpose" emails. I promise you that they are making a difference to my life. Warmest Regards and Thanks, Geoff Parker, UK

Wonderful Healing Newsletter

Hi from Saipan!  We really enjoy getting your newsletter.  John is working with a cancer patient and I was taken with your list of 10 ways to raise your vibrations. I printed out your list and we reviewed it with her and she is practicing every day.  His patient is doing fabulously well. So I thought that you would enjoy knowing that a woman on the other side of the planet is greatly improving her health because of your wonderful, healing newsletter, "Inspired on Purpose." Thank you thank you thank you. - Ashley Moffatt Uys, Saipan MP

Takes Me to a Quiet,
Peaceful State

"Wooden Voices" is just that - intimate voices that speak to the heart and soul. It is moving, sometimes bringing goose bumps and sometimes a smile. Listening to it brings instant relaxation and reflection. Each song emotionally takes me to a special moment and keeps me there in that quiet, peaceful state long after the music is over. - Ann Tolstedt (Singer/Songwriter and Recording Artist), Sheridan, WY

My Life Has Been Enriched

I am speechless for the first time ever!!! This morning I curled up with some coffee and read your book, "Wingin It," cover to cover. To state the obvious, it is amazing! Even though I had heard some of your tales before, the book gives them a whole new life of their own - as usual you have managed to inspire me. I hope you know how much your life has meant to others - you keep mentioning how much strangers and friends mean to you and I wanted you to know that my life has been enriched by knowing both of YOU! - Charlotte Malczek, Seattle, WA

Your Music Makes a Difference in People's Lives

This morning the snow was so pretty and fluffy. Perfect for making angels, so that's what we did...Ginny & I before we went on our walk. It's been so quiet around here after the holidays...just me and the angels. I also wanted Tupe to know how much I love the words to his "Angels Around Us" song. Your message came thru to me loud and clear the other day, when I'd been struggling to feel or see their presence, when I heard you sing...maybe before you can see it you've got to believe it. So today I've vowed to quit working so hard to fix things on my own and learn to turn it over and trust the guidance God is sending me. He's definitely been sending me some angels for friends lately (you two included) and for that I am thankful. Anyway, I hope you are having fun! Just wanted to share how your music makes a difference in people's lives even when you aren't around. That must feel good to know that what you do touches people's hearts. Take Care of U! - Paula Morgan, Story, WY

WOW Song ... Spreading Joy

I've been listening to your album, "Glow," today.  You've done some really interesting things on it.  "The Hero and the Whore" is a WOW song - really makes a person think about important things.  Janey, I love "Just For Me." You two spread joy anywhere you are and I'm so grateful to be in the radius of that energy.  I admire you - each and "Together." - Anita Paige, Rapid City, SD

Create the Life You Love

Bill and I listened to Handyman Hell and a few more songs from your latest CD, "Here Like a River," on our way home.  We had a good chuckle over Handyman Hell.  You have really done well for yourselves.  I have been watching you create the life you love and I admire the successful way you support yourselves with your talents and art.  This is a magnificent feat in this physical world. - Deb Mann, Nashville, TN

Soothing Birth Music

Something that was very special to us both was during our labour when baby Tasman was born, we played your CD, Tupe - your wonderful instrumental one, "Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light". We play it so often, we just love it and it was just the perfect, soothing sounds to have at such a time. So thank you for that. - Chris and Kim Chateris-Wright, Dunedin, New Zealand

Mood Music,
Both Relaxing and Inspiring

You do fantastic work! All the stringed instruments are very helpful when I am creating a painting. It is, in effect, mood music, both relaxing and inspiring. - Wilbur Lease, Gillette, WY

Stimulates Compassionate, Expansive Attitudes

Finally, a song like "Stuff, Stuff, Stuff," humorously exposes binding issues and stimulates more free, compassionate, and expansive attitudes and thought. And don't forget the captivating harmony and arrangement of "Old time Movie." These are some of the thoughts and feelings I have about your music.  I could go on.  Shall I write about the resonance with the earth I feel when you sing "Moon to Moon?"  How did you capture the magic of an ancient sacred rainforest ceremonial site in a song? - Kim Soltero, the Crystal sailboat, Carribean

Well-Executed and Uplifting Collection of "Feel-Good" Music

Some films are reviewed as "feel good" movies. Tupe's "Wooden Voices" is a well-executed and uplifting collection that I definitely experience as "feel-good" music. Usually, I listen to a CD a number of times before it starts to grow on me, but I was hooked on this one instantly. I give it two thumbs up! - Arlys Condos (The Celtic Sage Band), Sheridan, WY

Original Melodies

I have to give you an A+ on the original melodies and execution of Celestial Sounds. - Jimmy Johnson, Nashville, TN

This Music Will Guide Me Beautifully

Wow - how wonderful when I came home and the new "Celestial Sounds 2" had arrived!  You must know how special that is for us (especially me). I can't wait to do my yoga tomorrow and listen to it.  I do an abbreviated yoga session every morning - my back doesn't allow everything I want to do, but I do what I can and this music will guide me beautifully - I can't wait! - Lise Stimson, Sedona, AZ

There's No Better Gift Than to Share Yourself

As I write this big THANK YOU note, I'm listening to your new CD with headphones. Superb, excellent, uplifting, inspiring, and recorded/mixed perfectly. Great JOB! As of the moment, my favorites are Moon to Moon, Angels Around Us, Blue Water and of course No,Yes! Without doubt, I enjoy all the songs, but those are my favorites as of the second listening. You see, we put it on the stereo first thing. I'm only now getting to the headphones. Ah, Story Belt just came on. Sounds familiar, eh? I like your vocals. Also, good job tailoring in the sound effects too (birds and water on Moon to Moon) Okay, tell me, What Would Love Do Now? I'd say give both of you big hugs! I just have one question for you. We enjoy this CD and book so much that we want to know when the next book and CD are scheduled to come out? Okay, enjoy the moment of accomplishment - and what great ones too. Thanks again for the best gift of all ... a part of you! We love it. There's no better gift than to share yourself. - Bruce Young, Kansas City, KS

This was the Greatest Show I have ever seen. Very funny and moving. Heartfelt from start to finish. - Louise Webster, Calimesa, CA

Very Relaxing and Peaceful

About your CD, "Celestial Sounds"... How Wonderful! Very relaxing and peaceful. My favorites are Rainbow Hue, Earthtones and Blue Sky Traveler/Story Belt. Those didgeridoos are awesome. Overall a very impressive effort, (from someone who knows from personal experience how long all of this takes). Kudos to the artist (formerly known as Tupe)! Keep up the good work. Mike Hutchens, (recording artist), Nashville, TN

Played "Anthology" More Than the Rest

Hi to You Tupe and Janey - I am still in the west Caribbean, looking for you to get off the bus and say you are playing at so and so tonight . . . For the most happy days of my life was when you were playing at Mad Annie's on Caye Caulker. I got only one of your CDs at the time, "Anthology", and it took me 3 years to get a new player to hear the sound that you play. IT WAS GOOD AND I PLAYED IT MORE THAN THE REST OF THE 300 CDS I HAVE, and yes I need to get all your other CDs from you. I am now in Guatemala on the Rio Dulce. - Big John on the Mongoose sailboat

You Guys are an Inspiration

FABULOUS, INCREDIBLE, OUTSTANDING SUPERB, AMAZING, GREAT, DELICIOUS, ABSOLUTELY (#!&BLEEP*#!) BRILLIANT!!! I truly loved the CD, "Here Like a River." And without a doubt, it is your best work yet. You should be very proud as I am sure you are. I specifically put my CD player with head phones in my carry on bag from Seattle to Boston so I could listen. It made my looooooooooong flight totally enjoyable for over an hour. Here we were on our connecting flight from St. Louis to Boston, Monte's reading "Winging It" and I'm listening to "Here Like A River." Wow, could we feel your presence. You guys are an inspiration.

Love the production - clean and clear. Love the song selection and sequence, love the humor and variety. Time went fast!) Guys, I enjoyed it so much. I'm really happy for you. You did an absolutely fabulous job on that CD. You should be extremely proud of yourself.  I'm proud of you. - JoAnn Molloy (of JoAnn and Monte, recording artists), Anchorage, Alaska

Just Like You Two to Go for It and Take the Experience to the Max

Wow! Am I impressed with your ability to create and produce! I actually got a tear (of joy) in my eye when I held your book in my hand. I still can hardly believe you went from conception to completed book in 1 year flat. Wow! Here are a few things I want to share.  First of all I have been reading your book Janey and love the story about Ephesus in Turkey.  We visited there and heard the story of how one could hear a coin drop, so I can imagine how lovely your voices must have sounded in " God's shower!" Just like you two to go for it and take the experience to the max. Also, I really enjoyed the introduction to the book ΓΆβ‚¬β€œ the psychological insights and history of your strong sense of self.  I read the first sentence, " I have always loved my name..." and stopped right there thinking of what that meant to have Wing for a name and how you have used that image in your life. - Kim Soltero, Crystal sailboat

Beautiful Words
Touch my Heart

Hi Janey, You are a magnificent woman. Really, and Tupelo is a lucky boy, isn't  he? Your newsletter articles are so optimistic and positive. In our country people seem very unhappy andsad. It is very hard to live, that's why. But I try to keep myself happy and smile. Thank you for the fresh perspective of your words:

"Life is a complex tapestry. Each small fiber holds the promise of love and fear, hope and despair, angst and elation, sorrow, beauty, but most of all, joy. We have the choice to twist and turn our tapestry to the light or to the shade. We either cower under it or we wear it upon our shoulders like wings."

I feel things the same way. Your beautiful words touch my heart and I feel my self very strange. You are really an amazing woman. My best regards to you and Tupelo. - Aniola Dimova, your fan from BULGARIA.

Inspiring and Thought Provoking Messages

Dear Janey, Thank you for this message and for all of the inspiring and thought provoking messages you and Tupelo send.  I also believe that we live in the perfection of our becoming.  Therefore, in our non-mistakes and our non-perfection we are indeed perfect! Love, Light and Miracles! - Deb ("All that you are and all that you do - create the beauty of the weave.")

Soothing, Sleep Aid Music

I bought your Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light CD Volume 1 and I use it as my night time sleep aid. What a wonderful way to drift off to sleep!!! It is the most beautiful soothing music I have ever heard. Thank you for your beautiful music and for sharing your gift with others. Thank You, Colleen Black, Del Norte, CO

Awesome Disseminating

I absolutely love your audio book, "Wingin' It, On the Edge Adventures" - especially the last disc and your spiritual insights.  Awesome disseminating! - Carole Steward

My Day in a
Peaceful Frame of Mind

Yes, yes, yes!!! (You know like Meg Ryan's famous scene in "When Harry Met Sally!) I just love this new CD, Wooden Voices. I've been putting it on in the mornings after I've sucked up to God and it helps me continue my day in a peaceful frame of mind. You did a beautiful job. I'm not yet familiar with all the different songs as I've only listened 3 times but I sure love the different instrumentation and subtle vocalizations (Good job on those, Janey too). - Jojo Malloy, Brisbaine, TX

Obvious Meditative Quality . . . and an Energizing Quality

Hi Janey and Tupelo. I received a CD with your latest output, "Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light." Love it tremendously! I like the obvious meditative quality, and it moved me. The fact that your dynamic was behind it made it also very special. Harvey and I have enjoyed listening to it and will in the future. It will always remind us of the unforgettable time we spent together. Out of the universe we were suddenly put together with this wonderful group of people. We are very thankful for that. We are still together and miss you, but you left your spark. Thank you for that also. I enjoy an energy in the music on your Celestial Sounds CD which is quite unusual. I thought I'd mention it ... Although it leads one into a quite space, it does not seem to leave one there. It seems to have much more of an energizing quality. When Harvey and I arrived here we were in a not-so-happy place. Being here has been a healing experience. You two were very much part of that. So, also for that, thanks are in place. - Gerbrig and Harvey,
sailboat in the Caribbean

A Perfect Day

Hey guys - really enjoyed your music. Sometimes, just a big glass of ice tea and a lounge chair and you in the background makes for a perfect day. We "caught" you at "Coco View Resort" in Roatan last Christmas and New Year's. Take care, and we will be listening for you. Hugs  Lindy and Marty Roberts, CA

Great Fun, Laughs and Wisdom

Your book is bringing us GREAT fun and many laughs and smiles and pieces of wisdom.  I read it in one night and day and can't wait for Cris to finish her copy so we can compare favorite adventures. You do such a great job of putting the reader on the scene!  - Randi Somers, Port Douglas, Austrailia

Set the Tone for the Day

Your new CD is great music. I personally liked it the two mornings I listened to it as a "Relaxation and Set the tone for the day" CD.  I took it with me this past Wednesday to my Tai Chi class. Connie, our teacher, played it for the hour that we did our class.  There are about 30 to 60 students (all seniors) each week. Many positive comments! - Jim Berry, Springfield, MO

Go to the Very First Call/Song/Music of the Universe

Tena Koe e oku Rangatira mo nga waiata ana mo koe Tupelo, (greetings to our chiefly musicians and to you who is Tupelo), We the Maori have a proverb that goes like this:

Whakarongo ki te karekare o nga ngaru tua whitu o Tangaroa kia kaukaungia koe kia puta te te rangimarireme na mena e kore e whakana to wairua rapua karanga tuatahi te ngaru tua waru kua tena te kai patu o te ngangara i kai
te Wairua.

Translation goes something like this: (When in pain and confusion go to the sea and listen to and bathe in the ebb and flow of the seven waves of Tangaroa (sea divinity), that the reflected peace of the heavens may heal. If your spirit is still not healed and rested, go to the very first call/song/music of the universe which sits on the eighth wave. This is where you will find the power to destroy the worm that eats at the soul of those in pain and confusion.)

And so it is for me and my family when we sat and listened to your CD, "Celestial Sounds of Harmony and Light." My brother Ray and I spent this past weekend listening to it, we played your CD to our uncle and he was really blessed with it. So, once again, thank you very much for your wonderful music.

Helps Me Feel Peaceful,
Even in a Chaotic Environment

Hey Tupe, just wanted to let you know that I play your new Wooden Voices CD in my classroom ALLLLLL day long! It is perfect! It helps me to feel peaceful, even in a chaotic environment! I sure do love it. I hope I don't wear it out anytime soon.  Thoroughly enjoyed it. - Karla D. Greene, Avondale Elementary, Amarillo, TX

Your Music Evokes Heartfelt Emotions from Laughter to Glee to Poignant Wisdom

I wanted to send you some of my thoughts and feelings I have about your loving, wisdom inspired music.  In fact, the other day I came home and Luis had "Traveler" playing loudly.  Before I knew it, I was dancing a jig. I kid you not! It was just a zing of joy and before I knew it, I was dancing! Guess Dexter and I have a lot in common! Your music is motivational, inspirational, musically pleasing, uplifting and extremely clever.  It evokes heartfelt emotions from laughter to glee (as in Celebrate Life) to poignant wisdom as in, "the strength you gain from such a pain remains when it's all past." (I actually sat in a resort bar in Roatan, Honduras and took notes on that one while listening to you singing it live!)  Janey's voice soars with vibrant energy.  - Kim Soltero, the Crystal sailboat, Caribbean

Fun and Inspirational

And Janey's book!  Wow!  She really did it!  Not only has it been fun to read, but inspirational. (I'm milking it).  I've always loved Hawaii and am feeling more and more ready that it's time to move on.  I'm 43 years old and alone. But so what, I'm taking the plunge!!! Speaking of taking the plunge, every time I hear that song now, after reading Janey's story about swimming with the whales, I see a picture of the both of you "giant striding" off a boat together.  Maybe not entirely how it happened, but it would make for a good album cover, doncha think? - Lauray Walsch, Kona, HI

A Perfect Score
and Extremely Relaxing

I go for physiotherapy and a deep tissue massage every week, I brought the Celestial Sounds album with me and we played it during my session. It was a perfect score and extremely relaxing. We both enjoyed it. She asked me for pricing if she were to buy 10 and see if there is a market amongst her customers.
Let me know what you charge and do you have any other albums that can be considered as appropriate for massage therapy sessions? - Ray Rizos, Burnaby, BC, Canada (Yes, "Celestail Sounds Volume 2" and "Wooden Voices, Volume 1 and 2" - also instrumentals.)

Sharing Yourselves

Thank you Tupelo and Janey, for your emails, your music and for sharing yourselves. Many blessings to you, Lisa Lembeck

Clarity of Vision,
Openness of Heart

Dear friends, I want to thank you for the wonderful concert, and for the generosity you consistently manifest in a number of ways.  I very much admire the way:you live your  lives your creativity in many forms your enthusiasm and joy, your love for each other.

Janey, I really enjoyed your antics and acrobatics (though I wondered how your body felt the next day) and while you were doing the sign language song, I thought, "Now there is some FINE taiji." Tupe, I've long enjoyed the clarity of vision and the openness of heart in your lyrics. It was especially fun to get elaborated onstage versions of old familiars. I could go on and on, but you get the idea, guys. Many thanks. Al Carlson, Story, WY

Knocked Our Socks Off

As I told Dorothy on the phone, we had such fun listening to your CD's on the way home. "Close as a Heartbeat" just really knocked our socks off!  I've loaned the CD several times and all comments are not just favorable, but raving.  Anyway, the voices, music, lyrics (what else is there?) were just so special.  The CD will make a great Christmas gift for lots of people on our list.  If you can send us ten copies I will be glad to pay the "going rate" plus shipping. - Linda Boner, WY

Truly Impressed with Your Writing and Storytelling

I am severely impressed! I'm almost halfway through your book and have only caught 34 typos - oh, wait, that's 3-4 typos. Seriously, I wish I could express what I am feeling as I read though "Wingin' It."  Something like a sense of brotherly pride, I guess.  Makes me smile a lot that you actually did it.  The stories are well told and easily hold my attention.  Good imagery!  I'm right there with you (even when I'm not right there with you).  But I'm truly impressed with your writing and storytelling, Janey.  Way to go!!!  - Bill Mann, Nashville, TN

Loads of Fun

Wow! Janey and Tupelo are keepers. Their voices are beautiful, their music playing is outstanding, and they are loads of fun. - Susan Sitton, Mesa, AZ

Beautiful and
Fully a Vibration of Creation

You know, Tupelo, you are a gifted genius. "Celestial Sounds 2" is beautiful and fully a vibration of creation. I really loved it. Got it yesterday late and raced home to shut myself up in the bedroom to listen. I think the two of you have a wonderful balance. You both know how to bring it through with clarity. - Patricia Sanders, Sedona, AZ

Massage Music -
Relaxing and Peaceful

Just wanted you to know that Luis had a massage this weekend and we played your new "Celestial Sounds 2" CD for it.  It was very relaxing and peaceful.  He had it done on the porch and I continued to work.  It was just lovely.  I am going to play it again today as soon as he wakes up.  Thank you so much for the beautiful contribution to our lives and to the universal vibrations. - Kim Soltero, Maryville, TN

Traveling Around Doing What You Like to Do

Hi Janey, I really enjoyed the new age music, "Celestial Sounds." I will be ordering more copies of it. Although I don't enjoy country music much, I really liked the lyrics of your songs on your other CDs. (Although it's not really "country" is it?) Sounds like you have had an interesting and enjoyable life traveling all around doing what you like to do. I'm happy for you. - Kathy Meehan, CA

Wonderful Listening

I greatly enjoyed Tupelo's new CD, "Wooden Voices." The music is outstanding. He is a master. Wonderful listening. - Helleen Taylor, Good Health Emporium, Sheridan, WY

Reasonable, Wonderful Package Deal

Thank you for making your items available so reasonably. The deal you are offering is a wonderful package deal and I know it will spread your music quickly around the world. I actually prefer mp3 downloads rather than having thousands of CDs that I have to store. Thanks again. - Joyfully, Pegatha McKeon
