As an independent label, we've worked hard to develop a distinctive sound ? part-folk, part-classical, all-acoustic instrumental music. We feel our music is indeed unique, and we've never compromised in our determination to produce only the highest quality, most beautifully packaged recordings. We include detailed liner notes for those who are curious about the history and background of the music. Gourd has licensed music to Warner Bros. Music, Narada, Hearts of Space, Windham Hill, The Disney Channel, A&E and The History Channel. Selections from the Gourd recording The World Turned Upside Down were featured on the Ken Burns documentary Thomas Jefferson. Three Gourd recordings were featured on Ken Burns? latest project ( a documentary on Susan B. Anthony & Elizabeth Cady Stanton) on PBS.
A musical treat not to be missed

"From many of the highly talented musicians of the Northern California Gourd group (that also produced Northern Lights) comes an equally delightful collection of Celtic and modern tunes. I have every album these musicians have ever made, and play them almost daily. Their interpretation of these well-chosen Celtic pieces, as well as some wonderful original work, never fails to please. This is a CD you will play again and again and again."
A Spiritual Dance I Have Never Forgotten

"Orison's music is a spiritual dance of embrace, calm, haunting, joyful. Strings and nature. From the first moment I heard this music in 1990 I have never forgotten."
