David Banach is a husband, father, active member of his local Pagan community and host of The Magick Jukebox Podcast. He has nearly 10 years of experience with the genre of Pagan music.
It's hard to believe that Mama Gina is still a relatively new artist in the world of Pagan music. With her third album, Solitaire, due to be released very soon, she is soon to be no longer be known as the new kid on the block, but rather take her place in the pantheon of Pagan music royalty.
Solitaire has depth and character. Gina'a soulful voice shines in this well mixed and engineered album. The addition of backup players and singers brings a 1970's pop feel to her song "Goddess Walking". I honestly was reminded of the band America. Since they are one of my favorites, that's a good thing. "Old Ways" takes an intimate look at the spirituality in modern times. "Weed" shows off her bluesy side while telling a great tale. She gets to her tribal roots with the powerful "Old Snake Woman" and gives the listener a smile with "Mama Gaia's Going Through Menopause"....
The last few years have seen several notable losses in the world of modern Paganism. These "Big Nose Pagans" or "Big Name Pagans" have been the cornerstone of the Pagan pop culture and literary movement for many decades.
We have lost Margot Adler, Isaac Bonewitz, Stewart Farrar and Doreen Valiente just to name a few since I have become a Pagan. Not to mention some members of the new Pagan media like David Grega and Peter Paddon....
For Tuatha Dea, one-upping the success of the music video for "Long Black Curl" is a hard act to follow, but they pull it off with the second video from the Tufa Tales: Appalachian Fae album, "Wisp of a Thing."
