"Like any other business, the music business can sometimes seem like a jungle to succesfully try and find your way

through.

I and so many others have been lucky enough to have Donald help us get beyond the jungle, leave it behind us,

and do what we do best, make our music.

There are only a handful of people who have supported me right from the beginning, Donald, Spirit Wind Records,

and the "Silver Arrow Award" have been one of them.

Donald takes care of everything on the business side for his people, whom he calls his 'family',

along with keeping us updated on the latest happenings, interviews, etc. I could go on and on but in short,

I just wanted to say thank you to my friend. Don't know what we'd do without you!

My music has reached the ears of a much wider audience since signing with Spirit Wind Records.

Donald has set me off in the right direction with his great advice, connections, and support.

But what has impressed me most about Donald is his sincere love of Native American Music and his concerns for First Nation causes...

Wado for your motivation and example my friend!

"Let's put it simple - without Donald Blackfox, my music would not be where it is today. Donald's wisdom, insight, and production skills have blessed me in such a strong way. He is more than my promoter, "Donny B" is my brother, my friend, and someone who I am proud to stand next to. He shares a vision of equity for ALL people and sucess for ALL Native American Artists. Donald made the decision to submit my rock CD for "Artist of the Year" so I would have never won the award without him."

I would like to acknowledge the assistance, direction, and honest constructive criticisms that Donald Blackfox has bestowed on us in our endeavor to grow and broaden our musical abilities. His adding myself and Two Hearts to such a talented group of performers will be something we are eternally grateful for. Spirit Wind Records has increased our exposure immensely; our CDs are selling national and abroad thanks to his posting and promotion of Two Hearts as part of the Spirit Wind Records family.

It was Spirit Wind Records that honored Two Hearts with the Silver Arrow award for 2005 which was instrumental in gaining us recognition we worked so hard to achieve. Grizz and I thank Donald Blackfox from the bottom of our hearts for everything he has been able to accomplish on our behalf. We are looking forward to a long lasting relationship with Donald.

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter of recommendation to attest to the high level of dedication Donald Blackfox possesses in regards to his services rendered through Spirit Wind Records:

He personally helped me to create a CD single entitled Hopi Rainbow Sign in 2003 and I finished one full length album entitled Distant Journeys in 2007. I have been working with Donald on my second album Seeking Vision scheduled for release in 2009. Donald has personally created beautiful CD cover art for the album.

Donald is an inspiring person to work with always willing to work hard on a project and keep the level of quality high throughout.

When I first met Donald I instantly felt a kinship that has been strengthened by his honesty, straight forwardness, perseverance, and heartfelt encouragement. To work with him as an artist is an honor....

To work with him as a friend is a blessing. I look forward to seeing Donald's vision grow through Spirit Wind Records and if I can be of any further assistance please feel free

A special Letter from Faith Ozan

Dear Donald,

As Evren's 18th birthday approaches I want to thank you so very, very much for your presence in his life, and for the wonderful and unique role you played in his childhood.

Sentimental, I know, but doesn't it seem like yesterday when we walked into your shop in Salem?

Thank you, Donald for your beautiful presence and generosity.

With Love and all best wishes

Faith

Dear Donald Blackfox

I am honored by the confidence which you have placed in me. I am aware but have much to learn of the history and traditions which inform the way that you conduct yourself in your business and life and in the way that you present your artists. I will do my best to allow the spirit of that history and those traditions to flow through me and all of the music which I share as I journey forward. Thank you for this great honor and opportunity brother.
