The Spinning Leaves are a glowing experience, steeped in traditional American music, sweetened with psychedelic folk and a garnish of New Weird America. LOVE is a winding tapestry that envelopes the listener, taking you on a journey through a world that at firs glance could have been, but by record’s end truly can be. Our guides are Michael Baker, whose Kentucky heritage is not only evident but absolutely authentic - and Barbara Gettes - a Pennsylvania native whose voice is simultaneously suggestive and comforting.
Michael and Barbara present their vision of Love (with a capital L) for all the world to hear. LOVE presents powerfully real, insightful landscapes of people, dreams, and emotions. Swirling choirs of harmonies, bent harmonica, lazy horn sections, sitar and oud, wooden pump organ, and children’s voices, all perfectly placed.
In their own words... ‘We met on Barbara’s birthday in October of 2006 and started singing the next day. We believe in community and the connections that can form
when people look each other in the eyes. There are more than fifty people from the Philly music scene who have contributed to LOVE. We support with our music local farms and farmers, and treasure the complex connections between the earth and humans.’
