Artist Tiki Black publishes a limited-edition hardback Book CD version of her acclaimed 2022 work, “The Sound of the Broken Wand”, containing her poems, lyrics, and music.
The poetry collection (and one essay) is already a Readers’ Favorite 5-star book in the inspirational poetry genre and is gaining more 5-star reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Nobles and beyond.
The book is praised for its depth (BookFever, Goodreads) and aesthetic and lyrical beauty (Booklover, Amazon.com). It encourages us to break free from the wand of survival to allow for growth and emancipation. The duality of each of 6 themes are explored: the blood (life and death), the cage (prison and refuge), the mirror (reflection and deflection), the crown (power and duty), the shoe (journeys and unbeaten paths) and the wand (bewitchment and magic).
The CD won the Akademia 2022 Outstanding Legacy Award and received critical praise alluding to its timelessness, authenticity, and quality. Entropy Mag (USA) underscores its “spellbinding beauty” and “grace.” Liverpool Sound and Vision (UK) calls it “influential,” “uplifting,” and “outrageously cool.” Fatea magazine (UK) speaks of a “phenomenal album, full of soulful and haunting melodies that will capture your heart.” Critics marveled particularly at the power (Sinusoidal, Rock Era), uniqueness (Radioairplay) and range (Find No Enemy) of Black’s voice, and her authenticity and honesty (The Next Gig – Netherlands, Entropy) and the quality of the talented session musicians and the album’s producer, Russell Cottier (The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Sony, Sky TV, etc.)
The limited-edition hardback book CD can be purchased on Bandcamp.
