The Peddlers of Joy

 at The Tank

It felt entirely decadent and self-indulgent to open my voice and release it into the tank. The sound current is expansive, and the voice continues to swirl up into the highest reaches of the tank for what feels like an eternity, creating an extraordinarily profound and deeply nourishing sound experience. The tank changes the way you sing, causing you to move slowly, find the spaces, and to let the tank have its voice. After basking for hours in that sonic haven, I slept better than I had in years. I will indeed be returning. ~ Freyja Wild

The Peddlers of Joy

(formally know as The Astral Project)

meditative free jazz

There is a bit of magic afoot here, magic that can rejuvenate the weary, soothe the forlorn, help mend the deep wound and illuminate the always journey.

The Peddlers of Joy is a performance ensemble dedicated to creating mindful music live in the moment. Our music is all spontaneous compositions drawn from the love in the room and often has healing intent. It honors the shamanic impetus behind indigenous music and sacred traditions while simultaneously exploring powerful new understandings of how music affects our well-being. The Peddlers of Joy are Mad Dog Friedman on Native American flute, harmonica and Theremin, Sean Bennight on guitar, keyboards, bass, percussion and vocals, and Freyja Wild on vocals and percussion.

"The Wind Within by Peddlers of Joy is a new release that you would be wise to check out, it has seven simply harmonic and meditative long-form compositions of a multi-instrumental nature, it has the energy of a location that is fast becoming a hot spot for the more new age styled artists, and those that wish to float within their own creations; as such this is an absorbing new album that must not be missed at all costs, if you like long form ambient music, then you would do well by checking out The Wind Within by Peddlers of Joy." ~ from album review by One World Radio's presenter, Steve Sheppard.
