Quotes & Reviews
“Darlene presented a wonderful workshop about healing ourselves with our own voice and music. She preceded her workshop with a live concert of her music. The beauty of her music brought tears and opened our hearts. She is an important addition to any program especially about healing with sound. Darlene is really impressive as a professional performer and as a teacher of healing techniques with sound...
–Carl Bohannon, Director, Edgar Cayce A.R.E. Center, Houston
"It's hard to know where to start in praising Darlene Koldenhoven's new album . . . Color Me Home is a mega-ambitious project from this hugely talented singer/instrumentalist and she succeeds in every aspect. It's an utterly charming, beguiling, and highly entertaining recording which deserves many repeat plays in order to appreciate the care and detail that went into crafting it. Massive props to Ms. Koldenhoven on this crowning gem of her musical career (so far)."
–Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter 2/15/17
"I’ve been reviewing Darlene’s splendid “sonic therapy” works for a long time now . . with "Color Me Home," if you use the “coloring book” she’s included in the package (even includes colored pencils), you will find yourself “tripping” back to far earlier years/times, as your memories rise to the surface – which, I’ve no doubt, was a part of the whole idea… a truly wonderful piece of music that will help you return to your inner self and break away from any walls you may have built up ’round your spirit. I can say with total certainty that my own therapist (who shall go unnamed, lol) would be more than willing to use this as a healing therapy!" –Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews 2/15/17
"In short, she does everything to put the listener into a customized zone of comfort and relaxation, to receive pleasure from music. The music is often complemented by magical flute, mystically tuned crystal-sounding layers, soft rhythms and delicately synthesized textures. Here, in Tranquil Times [sic], is a true example of an extraordinary, wonderfully beautiful album created by a real master embroiderer of soulful warmth and universal harmony."
–Sergey, Ascentor, 1/31/2014, English Translation by The Russian Duo
"Darlene Koldenhoven's exquisite "Tranquil Times" is the perfect antidote for a stressful day. Graceful melodies, liquid sonorities and delicate pianistics highlight this newest work from LA's most creative and versatile New Age artist."
–Brad Cole, Keyboardist (Phil Collins) 1/9/2014
"Darlene Koldenhoven's passionate creativity is magical and spellbinding in Tranquil Times. Listen and you will find yourself floating among rich and brilliant aural hues."
– Brent Fischer - Grammy®-winning Producer, Arranger (Michael Jackson, Usher, Al Jarreau et al ) 4/17/14
