about

Inspired by a month long walk in the wilderness, drum beat of the earth, the smell of buckskin, creatures in the forest, eastern Washington on fire, a river who became a close friend, and near death experiences.

Track Name: Wild Whispers
Like the running wind I will follow over the earth/Spinning through the hollow and the open field//Somewhere dancing beneath the grasses whispers are wandering wild/Kneading through roots and our shadows meeting death below//Now we're searching through the willows where spirit moves soft/Catch the breezes with our teeth and let them guide us home
Track Name: Crystal Eyes
Come come down/Crawl underground below/The rocks will hold our breath in/The worms will dance us home//Come come now/Through buildings built with bones/Roots hang low like chandelliers/The walls are old souls//I'm echoing the stories now/I'm reaching for the minerals/My eyes have crystalized I see so many beings at once//All around she holds me all around/Soft the sound/Palms of clay and sand//I'm echoing the stories now/I'm reaching for the minerals/My eyes have crystalized I see so many beings at once
Track Name: Little Rapids
I hold to the rock face brought down by the small waves/Oh current dont take all I have from this place/All the time she watched me/Saw me tired and lonely/To the drum within me river she was singing//It all starts when you let go/Trust is simple and I will hold you/It all starts when you feel that I have known you and I still do//Little rapids racing shape the caverns and banks/They dance down to softly carry fears as we pray/With their lapping tongues and their laughter they head downward faster/If you need to you can ask her but hold tight the answer//That it all starts when you let go trust is simple and I will hold you/It all starts when you feel that I have known you and I still do
Track Name: Fire's Light
I awoke in the fire my eyes alive in light/Charred old wood in my fingernails I'd finally found my kind//I asked the trees to give themselves for another night I'll burn/To gather all the beings around and gift them in turn//Now the night is glowing orange against the black/Animals silhouetted while the spirits sing and dance/In the autumn moons eclipse/While the blood is spilling again/There's a fire alive again/There's a fire alight again/There's a fire alive again
