Chico News Review of Sweet Beets & The Kind Hearted's debut album "Sweet Aloha" by Alan Sheckter

Christina “Sweet Beets” Boyden’s "Sweet Aloha" is an irresistible folksy mix of Maui rainbows and Nashville-like twang. A longtime DJ who settled in Hawaii, Boyden filled her first full-length project with meaningful and memorable songs by virtue of a deep-rooted positivity, a lack of pretension and a lilting voice that exudes childlike-innocence. Supporting the original songs is The Kind Hearted, a band composed of players from the David Nelson Band and Moonalice, including bassist Pete Sears, lead guitarist Barry Sless, drummer John Molo and accordionist/keyboardist Mookie Siegel. Sless’ fingerpicking, in particular, weaves magical acoustic melodies that tie together the material and provide the album’s continuity. On the title track, Boyden paints an enticing scene of her life on Maui: “I love sunshine on my face, blue skies, rainbows in my eyes/Maybe a turtle or two swimming next to me/I love to surf in the deep blue sea/And now I love how you’re here with me.” Available via cdbaby.com, Amazon and iTunes.

    I am happy to see that there are hundreds of people who appreciate your work and they are even writing some reviews about it. Some were posted on [url=https://uk.bestessays.com/]uk.bestessays.com[/url] that's why I want to say that your mix made an impact to the people. There were some great DJs who did a lot of mixes and yet their works remained unnoticed. That's why I want to congratulate you for your success because you deserve it.
