Mystic Measures Band was formed in early 2009 to perform and record music that inspires people to rise above negative and fearful messages from the collective. Mystic Measures is sponsored by the Santa Fe Harmony Center, which offers experiential music, energetic medicine, and workshops for personal transformation and healing. Some say, “Drastic Times call for Drastic Measures.” At the Santa Fe Harmony Center, we say, “Drastic Times call for Mystic Measures.” Mystic Measures released its debut CD in May, 2009, called, “Origin.” The music invites you to sit back, enjoy yourself, and put attention to what you want instead.
Jim Kinney plays the native flutes and hand drums, and doubles as the band’s sound engineer. Jim’s varied career has included doing Sea Air Rescue in the U.S. Navy and co-founding experiential drumming/dancing events called “The Ecstatic Experience.” Currently, he co-owns the Santa Fe Harmony Center with Jennifer Peters where they practice energy medicine. Jennifer plays synthesizer in the band. Her former career spanned 25 years in the medical device industry, as a marketer and general manager. Kevin Brownlee plays a unique native drum “kit” and all types of percussive instruments. He grew up in the Southeast, where he played Division I college football as an inside linebacker. Both Kevin and Jennifer have graduate degrees in psychology.

Mystic Measures reminds you that not all music has to be compressed, auto-tuned, and popular. Their debut album "Origin" is a creative mix of native tribal music merging with some light, Techno synth sounds. The combination of keyboard loops, flute, and tribal drum beats makes for a calming listening experience. Each song is longer than your usual tracks, giving each composition time to unfold and capture the essence of the melodic and interesting melodies. The album opens with “Soul Seeker,” a strong track utilizing robust native drums, keyboards, and a piccolo range flute. The last track "Gypsy" also utilizes other instruments like wind chimes as this complements the rhythmical beats. While each musician sounds talented on "Origin," Jim Kinney records an admirably skillful native flute performance. Fans of Techno-Tribal variations will thoroughly enjoy listening to the outstanding music on the CD "Origin."
