Beautiful World CD
With this remarkable breakout album, John Two-Hawks began a new era for his music. With evocative symphonic string arrangements and powerful, moving soundscapes, this is music that will give you goosebumps. John's incredible soaring vocals are front and center, imparting the message of 'Beautiful World'.... Out of the parched soil of pain rises the flower of hope. We will hope again. We will heal as one....
Wow- It's absolutely wonderful. I feel John has opened a new door and stepped through it with the courage of his convictions. Beautiful, soulful, inspiring, comforting- I could go on and on.
I loved all of it- perfect use of voice (he's singing GREAT!), synths, acoustic instruments, and of course his flute. Also beautifully produced and mixed. It transcends the boundaries of culture and style to a musical and spiritual place accessible to all who would listen.
It's hard to find favorites among the cuts, but I found myself particularly drawn to 'For Grace' and 'To Know You'.
Please share this with John and tell him congratulations.

“The shift has begun.” John Two-Hawks continues to dig deep into his soulful creative vision to create beautiful music. His message is of beauty and hope, thereby bringing humanity in a collective force to peace and healing. John Two-Hawks is a GRAMMY and Emmy nominated recording artist. His signature brand is World Fusion and Native and Alternative music. Beautiful World delivers a symphonic sound on ‘Rising Up’. I enjoyed the strings and fullness of the sound. Track number seven ‘For Grace’ is a tribute to the victims of Newtown with profound lyrics for love. John’s indigenous woodwinds are woven into most of the songs, bringing forth an ethereal feeling of hope and healing. The CD offers a mix of songs with a vocal message and songs with evocative instrumentals.
