Genie Wildflowers
"Genie is probably the most successful, generous, independent artist... She's recorded with Sony/Epic, BMG, and Warner Brothers, writing and producing twenty-six CDs over her career. More than 3 million recordings of her songs have been sold so far. She's since become an independent artist because of health issues, to retain ownership and control of her copyrights, and consequently, to be more charitable in her giving. Through her own nonprofit charity, she's given away more than $2 million! Likewise, all profits to Wildflowers go to helping the needy of the world. She looks a bit like Helen Hunt's sister, but Genie has more in common with Kate Bush and Michelle Tumes singer/songwriters with delicate, almost childlike voices who play piano (an antique Steinway, in Genie's case). Additionally, the breathy arrangements by her husband Troy give Genie's music an Enya-like quality. It's all very tranquil and soothing, balancing sentimental songs for her grandmother ("Wildflowers"), parents ("Undying Love"), and husband ("You Steal My Heart Away") with spiritually themed tracks ("Quiet Place," "Streams in the Desert," "Someday"). On top of that, the album's 12 songs appear twice those who want instrumentals or backing tracks to sing to need only skip to the corresponding tracks beginning with 13. Talk about thoughtfulness!"- CHRISTIANITY TODAY - MAY 2004
