SPOKEN WORD...UNPLUGGED! by The Protectors of The Wood Band is a collaborative brainstorm between author, John KixMiller and band singer/producer, Tom E. Morgan. They felt it to be a great venture to record and perform songs that are inspired by, or actually appearing in his six volume book series. The Protectors of The Wood Band members include Tom E. Morgan (lead vocals/arranger/director), Alex Edward Guzman (acoustic guitar/lead vocals), Joshua John Allen (lead guitar), KC (percussions), and John KixMiller (narrations/guitar/woodwinds).
The Protectors of The Wood Band's debut cd, SPOKEN WORD...UNPLUGGED!, was produced by Morgan and co-produced and recorded by Jonathan Vergara at his Pancake Studios in Brooklyn, New York. The production team used a live studio setting technique that resulted in an intimate, organic feel and sound. During recording sessions, all musicians including singer, Tamara Kachelmeier, played and sang each track in tandem...straight through.
