A new kind of music group is breaking ground in Utah.
Rebecca Croft shows us what’s different about the band Cedar Breaks.
The newly released Tyme Aspects of Home cd by the new age folk band Cedar Breaks explores the concept of home with unique and thoughtful new age folks songs.
Known for their strong harmonies and evocative themes, Cedar Breaks has been featured in the short film Eutaw, a visual and musical depiction of the spirit of Utah, the documentary Walking in Obedience, The Ole Madsen Story, the cd from the PBS film Sweetwater Rescue, and local film festivals including the LDS film festival, Westates, and DocUtah. The band’s music is also highlighted in the new historical novel Upon Destiny’s Song, to be released in 2013 (see www.upondestinyssong.com
Cedar Breaks started as a single song that turned into a video and music tribute to Utah’s beautiful scenery, spirit and coming together of the best of Utah talent.
In addition, Empath Media is releasing a sixty-three-minute musical documentary with all the music on the Tyme cd in Fall, 2013. For more information on Tyme Aspects of Home visit www.cedarbreaksband.com
“From the moving waves of ‘Strong’ to the melancholy beat of ‘Rainy Day’ and to the pensive ‘Always Mine’ this album is truly a masterpiece! Find your solemn request in ‘Prayer.’ Let this album take you on a journey; your only contribution is to hold nothing back.” ~ Review of Tyme cd by tiawopa
