What our fans have to say:
"We all may have to take out the trash, pay bills, do laundry, dag sheep, lose a loved one or have the house burn up in a wildfire, but none of this has stopped Silverwoodstudio from creating and allowing brilliance to occur. Your pile of tracks are amazing and sound like the Straight up Fueled Truth!"
"A consortium of artists from this unique NZ studio reminds us that it's about the music! It's not about contracts, glitz, magazine covers or production... just the music, thanks. I love indie!"
"So glad I found this song [On an Island]. It's beauty and wonder lies in the emotion that stirred it's creation. A mantra of plaintive cries that tries to reach through an ethereal space that links life and death. Anyone who has suffered a shocking, meaningless, life changing tragedy (and I include myself here) will understand how important it is to make sense of it by any means possible. This young man chose music and in doing so gave a voice to the grief of others."
"Hypnotic and tribal dream-beats galore on this spiritual song of loss and attempt to re-connect with a departed loved one... quite spacey and other-worldly, which I always love and here is well achieved with breathing electric guitars and whispered vocals that add up to a creative piece. Good percussion choices for the beats... will make you want to pull out your Djembe drum if you have one." [re: Gondwana]
"Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you... I'm a sucker for didgereedoo, but this is outstanding! The production on this tune is clear as a mountain spring beckoning you inward and onward into a sweeping instrumental panorama, that builds to a powerful rhythmic shift at the halfway mark. There isn't enough hyperbole to encompass the coolness of Gondwana."
