piece by Cornell Kinderknecht
McCall has been named the winning song for the prestigious
annual Indian Summer Music Awards (ISMA) under the Native Spirit
category. This year's award winners were announced on September 6,
2014 at the Indian Summer Festival which took place at the Henry Maier

Big Sky, from his

the Native Heart category. The Native American Music Awards (also
known as the "Nammys") will be announced in November, 2014.
Boasting a dozen original compositions, Kinderknecht and McCall's
Dreamtime is a contemporary instrumental album that highlights
indigenous and world instruments and rhythms. Dreamtime was released
under the Little Greyhound Music label in November, 2013, and has
received critical acclaim which most notably includes being named "New
Age Album of the Year" by Phil Maq, Producer, Host and Blogger at
WHFR-FM. Dreamtime also received two nominations in the Independent
Music Awards. The album is currently enjoying radio airplay throughout
North America and Europe. Kinderknecht and McCall are both based out
of Dallas, Texas.
Kinderknecht's ISMA win comes on the heels of a recent top 5 award in
the 15th Annual Great American Song Contest for Mother's Hands,

album. Kinderknecht also performed several of his original
compositions as a featured performer at the U.S.A. - Japan Goodwill
