for the earth
I believe that our challenges in life are a gift meant to be transformed into something beautiful.
As a classically trained vocalist in choirs throughout my education,
I have developed a love for weaving lyrics into melody and harmony,
both carefully crafted and on the spot.
I have a wide background of study in music, theater, poetry, art, mindful movement, literature and environmental sustainability. Through formal training and the informal chaos known as the rest of my life, I learn to express my deeply Spiritual viewpoint of the Universe with mindfulness, creativity, authenticity and humor. With these traits, I spin together a unique performance piece built with original music, dance, story telling, and visual art.
I write my songs using live looped vocals, piano and ukulele.
For live shows I am accompanied by
My Self and a rotating ensemble of my closest musical kin.
Since birth, my Mother shared her love of the Arts and Nature and taught me to sing, pray and harmonize. When she died in 2010, it left more deep questions for me than Academia or Religion could even begin to answer.
Left without a guiding force, I have sought out love in all the wrong places… but luckily for me, rock bottom brought blessing.
I discovered that there is an undying guiding force
inside the Shared Heart where all life dwells.
This force urges me to choose expression and connection
by sharing my Song and Art.
My favorite Art forms serve as a soothing balm for the hard Truth
and as a way to connect with my Mother, the Earth and others.
My creativity serves as a prayer for the well being of All.
I sing of my authentic relationship to my Self as Spirit,
My disillusionment with current structures of society,
My honest views of abuse and addiction of the Self,
My Great Love for Mother Earth and
My Deep Compassion for all Suffering.
In response to the social climate Humanity lives in today
I propose a timeless solution:
Accept and love what is,
while moving relentlessly toward what could be.
