Phoenix(Arizona), USA –
David Nighteagle joins the Canyon Records label with
Torn from the Heart -The Journey. Nighteagle draws upon his Lakota heritage to create songs that evoke the past
and harken the future. This album is a heart-felt expression of contemporary
Native American with songs for solo flute interspersed with soothing vocals
whose lyrics describe the gritty reality of the Native American experience over
These songs tell us of the decimation of the people, the buffalo
and the land while also speaking of the strengths and hopes of “The People”.
