What People are Saying about Chromatones

“Darlene Koldenhoven’s Chromatones is pure instrumental magic that is sure to lift your spirit as it soothes your soul. Overflowing with warmth and grace, I think we have a winner here!”

Kathy Parsons 4/13/18

“Darlene’s instrumental work is simply beyond compare . . . I can easily see Native Bloom garnering multiple awards. There is mesmerizing magic woven into the title track, Chromatones... the string washes and synth lines on this song alone make it well worth the purchase of the album...nothing too “fancy,” but it carries the weight of the ages right to your doorstep... Most highly recommended.”

“The new age and world elements come together in an explosion of sound and bright colors, painting your consciousness into the music effortlessly. . . There is so much to offer on Chromatones . . . I think Darlene Koldenhoven has hit a high watermark with this recording. . . This is music for the heart, soul, and mind of any listener. I think this will be in the running for a Grammy.”
