Daniel Gildenlow's voice is an unparalleled mixture of passion, vulnerability, & pain that reaches into the soul, past the weathered armor of even the most hardened 'road warrior'. When I listen to 'Road Salt', it takes me into lost parts of my own soul that I forgot existed, past the barricades & defenses we create to protect ourselves along the way; his visceral vocalizations are an impassioned illustration of the Hero's Journey we ALL must make. The first time I heard it, I just wept; it was such a release. I felt, at a deep spiritual level: 'I'm not alone in this journey; it's as if his soul reached right through the recording into mine; indeed, into all who would open up their hearts/minds/souls and listen!
The songs on Road Salt are emotionally evocative, as well as musically edgy, atmospheric, and always interesting, and impeccably played by musicians who are all virtuosos in their own right! This CD is a RARE GEM; I have heard nothing in rock or popular music that comes close in the last 20 years!!!
