These are our first nominations in Country and Rock, and we are just so honored for all the nominations, because both the nominations and the final awards are chosen by music and recording industry professionals — in other words, it’s a level playing field for all recording artists, and not a matter of how many people you know.

“Clear Water consistently puts out music like no other… You guys never miss when it comes to your music! I can see why Anidohi has been nominated for awards in different categories at the ISMA! 

“I always read what you write on the inside cover and think about the message you are giving through your songs. I also read the names of each song and what they are about as I go through the CD and just try to think upon the message. I feel so many different emotions as I listen to your music – peace, joy, prayer, celebration and healing… Your music is a true gift.” — Carol Baptiste

I always love hearing your music.  It always makes me ‘Feel Good’ deep down.  It makes me feel happy and connected.  Your music is inspiring and healing in a way I can not explain.  It heals the spirit.  It is like a banquet of the best food, but for the soul and spirit instead of my tummy. — Deb Taylor-Johnson

Our 13th CD, “Adasegogisdi” was just released this past June, and you can hear it or purchase either a physical CD or download here, or from your usual music download site.

It’s another great batch of all new, all original killer dance music with acoustic instruments and the big powwow drum!

Small paintings and cheap camera zen! Small paintings, usually 8" x 8" or smaller, and cheap photography. The paintings are all acrylic, archival, and you can buy prints here: or the originals directly from me. Just shoot me an email or leave a comment on the blog post. All the photos originally taken with some variety of cheap camera. A cell phone, a $40 Vivitar, a Canon Power Shot and now I've started using a Canon ELPH. Cheap cameras are soooo good any more! That plus some awesome processing software, of course. But the point is, you don't need expensive equipment to explore the deeper reaches of reality. Just use the tools you have with the mind and heart you have. I post images and thoughts that lead you into the invisible behind the visible, the reality behind the illusion, the depth beneath the surface. Reality is not what we think it is. It's not even what we might -- or can -- imagine it is. But we have to explore, and we have tools to explore, among them the arts: they can be gateways to that vast unknown country. At least we can stand at the border and look. And someday, maybe, start to take a few steps deeper and deeper into the most magnificent terra incognita that humanity has ever known. One of the reasons I choose to work in digital media is so that anyone can afford it. Very democratic. You shouldn't have to have a big budget to collect really good art. If you have a bigger budget, you can always purchase a larger size and an upgraded framing and matting option. My work is all created as high resolution images, so they'll look great even at the largest sizes. Check it out here. If you enjoy my work, I’d love to hear from you. And if you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoy creating it, why not share it with your friends! Spyder Webb P.S. Yep, that’s my real name. P.P.S. More digital photography explorations into the great mystery coming on a regular basis, so be sure to check back often. Better yet, subscribe so you never miss a post!
