After some time in the studio with various producers pushing and trying and
forcing myself to make the music I thought I should make; the music they
thought was the happening sound of today, I had a revelation. One of my most
treasured musical influences, Laura Nyro, made her transition. I retreated into my
own world to reconnect with what was important to me as an artist. I couldn’t
listen to most of my old demos. They seemed empty. What did I really want to say
and how did I want to say it. It became clear to me that I was the one who
knew best what to write and how to produce it.
One day during a meditation, a guide came to me who looked kind of like Ellen
Degeneris. She talked real fast and told me I had to do a CD and not to worry
because I had plenty of help. She motioned to Laura who sat smiling beside
her. At first I was stunned, especially since this entity seemed so hyper and
intenseâ¦ not exactly the woo woo spiritual type. The reference and appearance of
Laura soothed me incredibly and I felt as though it was up to me to carry on
where she left off. I let go into this new adventure where "a view from the
moon" was birthed with ease.
Each track was written and recorded by me in my living room on the 45th floor
in midtown Manhattan. All the sounds came from my Proteus 1 module being
played through an Korg keyboard. I recorded onto computer and mixed down to my
four track. It was scary not having a state of the art digital setup, but I
couldn’t let that stop me. I knew that what I was creating was going to be filled
with more heart and soul than anything I had ever done. I closed the blinds,
lit stick after stick of nag champa incense and listened for the sound in my
I got up every morning, made kukicha tea and sat down with pen and paper away
from my keyboard. The spontaneous unedited writing from those morning
sessions became the lyrics for each song. I would then move to the keyboard and begin
wherever I was guided to begin. Sometimes with a bass part, sometimes a drum
part, but always fresh and absolutely in the moment. Always "letting it come"
to me. Song after song came. Bass parts, funky, jazzy atonal horn parts.
Lyrics that seemed totally asymmetrical, as in Dear Dear Love, became beautifully
fleshed out melodies.
My experience was that of allowing. I was taking dictation from a Divine
Creative Energy; I was plugged in to the Flow. My writing will never be the same.
I now totally trust what comes through me and I know that I am the vehicle for
Spirit’s Love and Grace to flow forth. I accept this fully as my life’s
purpose. I love listening to this CD. I’m inspired and proud to have created it. I
hope it serves as an inspiration for you.
"You’ve got to drop your confined adult identity" That’s what I had to do to
create this CD. I had to drop what I thought was going to get me heard as an
artist and vibe with what my truth was in the moment. This song paves the way
for my metamorphosis into my truth as an artist.
Dear Dear Love
When these lyrics came, they were so unlike any lyrics in terms of symmetry
that I felt nervous as to how I would get them to be a song. As I relaxed and
let the work come through the song was beautifully and soulfully revealed to
me. Dear Dear Love is a celebration of love right here, alive in the moment with
its richness and playfulness. I had just experienced a breakup that had me in
deep grief. Someone new was knocking at the door and I was scared and
doubting that love could last. "Can we sustain this beauty, remaining unharmed and
can we live as lovers delighted and charmed, and do we believe that the future
is gettin’ brighter every day?" One of the questions I ask myself constantly.
I believe this is one of the sexiest songs ever https://www.tradebit.coms was the best
process for me. After I put down the drums and bass track I turned up the funky
horns on my Proteus and recorded one pass without stopping. It was wild. I
never thought about what I was gonna play- I just played like a kid and had a gas!
I purposely played wrong notes and out of time phrases because they sounded
interesting to me. Why should everything be so perfectly placed? It felt great.
Then I thought, "ok, now go back edit and fix it all." But when I listened I
thought it sounded cool. I remembered an acoustic guitar part on one of Paul
Simon’s CD’s that was recorded sharp. I loved that because it really got your
attention. I don’t want my music to flow right past you. I want you to stop
whatever you’re doing. I want it to break you out. So I left it.
This is about being obsessed with someone who is totally inappropriate for
you to want. You know, like your best friend’s x. Ooops. You know it’s never
gonna happen but the fantasy is like an addiction. Ooo girl!
Laura’s death was a huge blow to me and my love for her fueled this project.
And then one morning in the midst of this writing spree my girlfriend called
to tell me that a woman she had worked with was out shopping with her boyfriend
and just fell down dead. She was in her mid 30’s. I was very moved. As a
spiritual person there’s a side of me that is not afraid of death and then there’s
the other side. The side that’s hangin’ out groovin’ on the day and does not
want it all to end right now. And then bam something unexpected happens; the
car comes out of nowhere, the doctor finds something, your sweetheart takes you
out shopping on a warm spring day and... Unexpected Angel is my little talk
with death sayin’ hey, I’m not all that cool about you so "don’t you come
around me when I’m dreamin’ and plannin’ and hopin’".
Over Our Head
It’s a play on words because from a place of smallness we can never seem to
find joy though it’s always over our heads, meaning just beyond us. But in
truth if we simply look to our intuitive nature, joy, love and peace are perfectly
revealed. "and by the way the sun shines in the heavens, that might be a clue
of who we areâ¦it’s right there over our heads, look up, look up"
All Night long (God In Motion)
This song expresses the place where spiritual meets sensual, where lovers
affirm their Oneness with each other and in God. I feel so happy to have been
given this song. It’s my most favorite to perform and it’s so satisfying in its
message of connectedness.
This was one of the first songs that came to me in this compilation. I wrote
this after having felt betrayed by a lover. This song was a healing, reminding
me that without trust, and without opening my heart, I’d never get close to
anyone again. "Trust is the answer, To every question, to every prayer."
After having shut myself down following this hurtful breakup, it was time to
break out and have fun. With all the pain I was feeling, it wasn’t easy for me
to do that. Bandito Love was a "fake it ’til you make it" kinda thing. It was
also a call to my new sweetheart to "meet me out back and throw me off track,
’cause I need it honey".
Free Rollin’ Love
Oh yes. I was yearning for a free rolling, easy going, sweet love; a love
with no complications. I was feeling so awkward, like I didn’t know how to have a
relationship. And then this song came so flowing and easy and simple. I felt
like I was asking my higher self to teach me to open up and feel free again;
"your mama taught you how to dance so bold and daring, I wanna learn this dance
Time is simply my version of ’time heals all wounds’. As I moved through my
process of letting go and finding my new life, a friend kept reminding me not
to give up five minutes before the miracle. "Tender love turns snow into roses,
in its own sweet time, give it time, ’cause that’s all we need, oh a little
more time and we will see the miracle of love."
