On January 16, 2022, New Age Music Guide announced their top 10 music albums of 2021. People Passing Through, the debut album by The Song Gardeners, won Best New Age Music Album of the Year. The Guide reviewed over 250 albums, published 12 monthly charts, and winners were selected based on over 2,000 music requests and statistics.
“Not only did The Song Gardeners revive the forgotten sub-genre of New Age Pop – they gave us hope and comfort through a very difficult year.”
— BT Fasmer, music reviewer at New Age Music Guide
This San Francisco Bay Area band was formed in August 2019 by singer/songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Corrie Dunn and Mary Gospe. People Passing Through was produced by David Scheibner and mastered by music industry icon Bernie Grundman.
Fasmer continues: “People Passing Through, from a thematic perspective, is a perfect match for the here-and-now. More so, the album has a timeless quality. When listening, one can’t help focusing on the songs’ meaning and the optimistic, feel-good atmosphere. It’s a wonderful collection of eight rock-solid pop melodies with a charming touch of New Age music. This new sound paves the way for New Age pop in the 2020s, which seemed very unlikely before this band entered the stage. Through their songs they have cultivated a local and a global audience simultaneously. Bravo!”
