“EarthTones II” is an inspiring easy listening album from a talented group of musicians in Pamela Weng and Friends. Weng and her thirteen friends hail from eight distinct cultures, each member bringing a unique interpretation of music to the project. Collectively, they are a musically sound group with a gratuitous amount of musical chemistry, and they take the listener all around the world with the sounds they create. Musically, Weng and friends are in touch with nature and quite literally create the tones of the earth in the most eclectic of ways. Weng’s vocal appears on a couple of tracks, “They Slice The Air – poem,” which has a sort of speakeasy feel, and “Garden of Stars,” which is a beautiful and inspiring strong vocal performance. “EarthTones II” is well-produced and does justice to the hard work and enormous amount of creativity that went into the album. “Crescent Moon” introduces the album with a slow alternation between the piano and Native American flute backed by slow waves created by successive taps on a cymbal. “Orion the Hunter” is a great jazz number introduced with a piano solo then turns into an all-out jam with shakers, drums, flute, and guitar. “Outback Ochre” and “Outback” both incorporate the didgeridoo to make the listener one with Australian nature. “EarthTones II” is a great easy listening album with a fascinating blend of cultures and musicians from all around the world. Fans of inspiring easy listening and great musical collaboration, this one is a must.

Bio

I began studying piano at the age of five and was well trained in classical literature.
I began composing in the 1980's and released my first album, Earth Tones as my Masters thesis for my Humanities degree in 1997. Throughout the late 80's and 90's I played in restaurants, hotels, and various gigs in Denver and the surrounding areas.
I don't have a steady band....so that sets me apart from most others....but I have been blessed with a vast aray of talented musician friends over the course of the last 20 years....so I can find great musicians to cover whatever projects I dream up!
