about

This collection of earthy acoustic soul came forth from connections to community, the sea, the trees, the fire, the rivers, and the moon...

The title is a response the intense events of the past year. Individually, I learned so much about my shadow side through my ego struggles in my last relationship with a ( another! :D ) very talented musician. Collectively, we are living during a time when the shadow side of humanity is very, very apparent. But so many are awakening to the insights of what this shadow reveals about us and how we can evolve. We have so many reasons to retain hope. May these songs serve to uplift us and remind us of our power.

Let's grow with the flame...grow into the light...

I recorded this album in the Green Dream (#tinyhousebigsound) with the gracious help of a dream team of musicians: Rob Cline, Chris Hale, Claudia Cuentas Oviedo, Ryan Powell, Rafael Otto, Richie Audino, Rene Planchon, Kristin Dissinger, mixed by David Paulik and mastered by Theo Grace. Stunning album artwork courtesy of Lp Ross with photography by Sam Gehrke.

Track Name: Pelagia
We have so much power
deep in our imaginations
we can roar with the ocean
we can change with the shore

embraced by ghosts of ancient trees
messengers between land and sea
listen to the rhythm
listen to what our mother speaks

we will roar
we will roar
we will roar with thunder through these skies
we are accomplices of the rising tide

We have so much power
deep in our imaginations
we can roar with the ocean
we can change with the shore

listen to the rhythm...listen to the rhythm...listen to what our mother speaks
Track Name: Shadows Insight
We're searching for a new garden
the healthiest soil in which to plant our seeds
we've got to believe we can grow with these beloved trees
reaching for the light
sheltering our seeds
we can grow as strong as strong as we believe
so grow my beloved trees
as strong as we believe

because our branches reach up
roots reach down
build the sky a temple
from ashes buried in the ground
surrender to the fire
cast our fears into the pyre
grow with the flame
grow into the light
of shadows insight

They tried to cut us down
but we keep growing
they tried to teach us
but we keep knowing
and all the roots deep down these connections will keep on flowing
as long as we believe
so grow, beloved trees, as strong as we believe
Track Name: N'chi Wána
We feel your power, Great River
N'chi Wána
We feel your power, Great River
N'chi Wána

Let your salmon guide us upstream
gotta keep your waters clean
let our lives feed the next generation
Let your salmon guide us upstream
gotta keep your waters free
let our lives feed the next generation

We will honor your name
Great River, we feel your power
we surrender to your flow
may your current guide us home
to our ancestors' bones

Buried when we could drink the water
Buried when we could feast from this stream
Buried before the rivers burned
Can we awaken this dream?

Let your salmon guide us upstream
gotta keep your waters clean
let our lives feed the next generation
Let your salmon guide us upstream
gotta keep your waters free
let our lives feed the next generation
let our lives feed the next generation...
Track Name: Reflect Your Light
We reflect your light as the moon reflects the sun through the night

We reflect your light, protectors
our peaceful warriors
from Cascade Locks to Standing Rock
from the Willamette to the Cannonball
through the riverbanks echo your call
through the waters that connect us all
water is life...water is life...water is life

but water is a weapon filled with lead and oil
poisoning our brains, poisoning our soil
don't make water a weapon
from a hose at twenty degrees
knowing tender skin will freeze
we must disarm you

witness: reunification of 500 nations
visionaries
offering tributes through your tributaries

We reflect your light as the moon reflects the sun through the night

We reflect your light protectors
of your visions of your dreams
past bulldozed burial grounds and bullet pierced screams
but we are still in nightmares, not yet awake
we are still feeding these black snakes

and we have our reflections to face
as you defend your sovereign space
and hold the mirrors to our fears

fear of scarcity, fear of change, fear of insignificance

we're afraid to look in the mirror
afraid of what we might see
afraid to realize the same light shines on you and shines on me, so

so let us all become protectors
let us protect with humility and respect
let us learn the history buried under text
let's become teachers, creators, healers and seekers
reformed disbelievers
imperfect dreamers
let's fly with the Raven who first carried light to the sky
revealing beauty in all the world

We reflect your light as the moon reflects the sun through the night
Track Name: Citizens United
Billionaires buying time
selling fear to our minds
building walls and dividing sides
filling our airways and screens with lies

but we are awakening
we are seedlings pushing through the ground
we are awakening
with the morning birdsong, singing

We are citizens united
we will not let this hypocracy divide us
we are citizens united
we will not let this kleptocracy divide us
we are citizens united, citizens united

demand to keep our voices free
and don't put money where our mouths should be
'cause we are priceless we are not voiceless
when you try to sell our water and our forests
when you pepper spray our eyes
just because we're marching by
singing songs and carrying signs we're coming from every side

We are citizens united
we will not let this hypocracy divide us
we are citizens united
we will not let this kleptocracy divide us
we are citizens united, citizens united

gather 100,000 strong
we must begin even though much is wrong
demand to keep our voices free
and don't put money where our mouths should be
