Pelagia 04:34
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

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

N'chi Wána 04:33
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...

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

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

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.
