Guest Biography: 

Brian C. Wilson, Ph.D

Brian C. Wilson, author of the new book, John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age, is a professor of American religious history in the Department of Comparative Religion at Western Michigan University (WMU). He holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

After writing an award-winning book on cereal inventor and the leading Seventh-day Adventist of his time, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the Fetzer Institute invited Wilson to write a full-length spiritual biography of its founder, John E. Fetzer. The Kalamazoo-based Fetzer was a radio pioneer, media mogul, and long-time owner of the Detroit Tigers baseball team. But what most people didn’t know was that John E. Fetzer was quietly behind-the-scenes a significant figure in the consciousness movement and a spiritual seeker of the first order. For more than 60 years, he sought ways to open the doors of higher consciousness, spiritual empowerment, paranormal insights and energy medicine to humanity through spiritual study, science and the influence of the wealth at his disposal.

In John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age, Wilson not only explores the evolution of Fetzer’s beliefs, but how he put them into action by permanently endowing three funds that will foster research into the scientific/spiritual interface for years to come, and help cultivate a more peaceful, loving and inclusive world founded on the principle that we are all connected through one infinite force.

LEGENDARY SONGSTRESS

WITH

PROGRESSIVE ROCK'S

CURVED AIR

At 15 Sonja was studying drama whilst sharing billing with such luminaries as Sandy Denny, Al Stewart and Buffy Saint Marie.

Sonja, a barefoot hippie wild-child whose friends in the late ‘60s were radical revolutionaries, Hells Angels, writers and poets, and celebrated musicians, played Chrissie in the Original London Cast of Hair in 1968. In 1970 Sonja Kristina became the voice of Curved Air.

Curved Air soon became renowned for their virtuosity and thrilling shows. Their albums were top 20 best sellers, as was the hit single Back Street Luv. The influential original members were electric violinist Darryl Way, electronica pioneer and guitarist/ keyboard player, Francis Monkman and drummer Florian Pilkington- Miksa. From 1970 to the present-day Sonja Kristina has been the one constant member of Curved Air.

In 1973, 17-year-old Eddie Jobson (Roxy Music / UK/ Frank Zappa) replaced both Monkman and Way during the ‘Air Cut’ era. In 1974 -76 Stewart Copeland came straight from college to critical acclaim as Curved Air’s drummer. At the end of ’76 Curved Air broke up and Sonja had a ringside seat at the birth of Punk and the astronomic rise of Stewart’s band ‘The Police’, during Sonja and Stewart’s 16-year relationship.

By1989 Sonja Kristina re-invented folk rock with a fiery brand of music she dubbed Acid Folk. Curved Air’s violinist Paul Sax and Keyboard player Robert Norton toured with Sonja Kristina’s Acid Folk Band until 1996, playing Glastonbury and other festivals year after year.

Since 2000 Sonja has been working with Composer/Producer/ Cellist/Violinist Marvin Ayres, known for his unique manipulation of sound textures and audio-visual installations. They have two releases as MASK. “Heavy Petal, the Tenebrous Odyssey of Jack and Virginia’ and ‘Technopia’.

Marvin Ayres produced the 2012 Curved Air ‘Live Atmosphere’ CD.

The constant flame leading Curved Air through the decades, Sonja Kristina's hypnotic attraction endures today, "vibrant and edgy as ever, Sonja, the original prog diva gives a charismatic and highly visual performance. Looking like a glamorous gipsy queen with her flowing red hair and dressed in sparkly black, that signature voice is still smoky and seductive as she spins around the stage around the excellent musicians who are Curved Air". (Music Street Journal)

Curved Air is: Vocalist Sonja Kristina, Drummer Florian Pilkington Miksa, Guitarist Kirby Gregory, Violinist Paul Sax, Bass Chris Harris and Keyboard Player Robert Norton.
