Musician

Tony SingingEagle

Born:

As a composer, my strongest desire is for people to hear my music. For only when it is heard for the first time, does it begin to breathe and become alive. But I also recognize the need to say a little bit about myself. So just who is Tony SingingEagle?

At the time of writing these words, I have walked this earth for 70 winters. I count winters, as my Native ancestors did (not years). My grandfather was full blood Oglala Lakota, born around 1900 near Pine Ridge, South Dakota. My halfbreed father did not know much of the ways of our people, but he made sure I knew where I came from. However, it was not until my 33rd winter that I began to fully understand–and embrace–the fact that I was Native. In 1996, I made a personal commitment to learn (and live) the ways of my people, particularly the Lakota spirituality, culture and language. My name in Lakota is Waŋblí Wálowaŋ (SingingEagle) and references the story of a golden eagle who watched over a Lakota camp and cried out when danger was near, in order to protect the people. It was gifted me in a sacred naming ceremony by a Quahadi Comanche elder/medicine man in 1997.

Musician

Heidi Savoie

Born:

“While she’s able to match Guaraldi’s delicate touch on the ivories, she can also brew a solo like Brubeck, though unlike Brubeck, she cools to a simmer before she gets to a boil. She has Vince’s dexterity and Brubeck’s fire, mating them with her own style.” – Edward Mowinkel of YaLikeJazz.net “…She sent takes that would make Oscar Peterson jealous. I dropped them into the mix and the song came to life.” – Joe Kelly of the Kelly Song Collective “Her magical playing on the piano perfectly matched the romantic ambiance of the night.” – Rubi Karuna Heidi Savoie is a jazz pianist, vocalist, and composer based in Toronto, Canada
