    In the final production Andy created some beautiful transitions between some tracks. No gap between the waves at the end of om shanti, straight into the whale song... and the chimes from Akash come in at the end of Gayatri.

about

Namaste friends!

A couple of years ago I shared with some good friends on a sunny new years morning, my intention for the coming year: to ‘undam the musical flow’. In July of 2014 at the completion of a yoga retreat I shared that it was high time I recorded a CD. After years of what felt like holding back the creative flow in order to keep up with demands of the busy-ness of ‘life’, the floodgates were finally opened! This album, my debut, is a testament to the potency of setting an intention, being witnessed and having so much support along the way…

Acknowledgements & thanks!

To Andy, Imogen & Lilybel…. So blessed to have met you and for the musically inspired friendships which have ensued! Andy your talent and attention to detail is evident in the final product… you should be proud! Very grateful to have found you. Love your work!
Imi – those beautiful harmonies! So blessed to have your harmonious input to find the layers in the vocals and sing alongside me and for bringing your choir too! Lilybel, can't wait to hear your first recording! Thank you both for walking me through it. Big love!

Haitch – my brother from another mother! Thanks for you gentle encouragement to send me on my way, for the kick in the pants when I need it most and for your creative & musical contributions. LOVE!

Thanks to Kevin James, Lulu & Mischka, Prem & Jethro (Sacred Earth) and Daphne Tse for blazing the trail and encouraging me to find my own authentic offering. Big gratitude for your inspiration and your support!

To my darling friends Sherrelle, Karen, Tina, Brian, Gwyn & Gaia, my folks and my family… thanks for being such great cheerleaders!

To Ange Hammond for a beautiful website, sven for the perfectly timed very clever artwork and Robyn Mill for such artistic photography. Special thanks to those who pledged in the crowd funding campaign – SO GRATEFUL!

Biggest thanks goes to my partner Ross for your support on the project, for keeping the home fires burning while I have been trekking back and forth to the studio and for your infinite love and encouragement. Love and thanks to you ALL!

Track Name: Earth Turning
Take off your blindfold, look around
Open your ears, and hear the sound
Of the earth turning
Oh ooh, earth turning

Take off your mask let them see your face
Know that you belong in this space
And listen to your hearts yearning
Oh ooh earth turning

Open your eyes open wide
'Cos there is no need to hide
There’s beauty here for you to see
It’s time to set your vision free

Loose your chains, break down your walls
Don’t be afraid, to take a fall
You’ll keep on learning
Oh ooh earth turning

Open your eyes open wide
'Cos there is no need to hide
There’s beauty here for you to see
It’s time to set your vision free

Take off your blindfold, look around
Open your ears, and hear the sound
Of the earth turning
Ooh oh, earth turning
Ooh oh, earth turning
Ooh oh, earth turning
Ooh oh, earth turning
Track Name: Watch Over You
With a lions heart
she steps into the unknown
Fear dissolving, nothing left but now
Spirit is coming home
Mmmm she’s coming home

Spread your wings and fly
And I will watch over you
Hand on your shoulder
I’m right by your side
I’ll be watching over you

Time now to let go
Time now to say goodbye
Shed your form now, just like a butterfly
I’m coming up behind
Mmmm I’m right behind my friend

Spread your wings and fly
And I will watch over you
Hand on your shoulder
I’m right by your side
I’ll be watching over you

Time passes, wearing out all clocks
The agony of love and the ecstasy of pain
As all that we hold, slips through our fingers
Like cleansing summer rain, we’re holding on in vain
Breathing deep again
Spread your wings, and fly
Spread your wings, and fly

Spread your wings fly high
And I will watch over you
Hand on your shoulder
I’m right by your side
I’ll be watching over you
Track Name: Ninderry
Beneath her loving gaze, I’m unravelling
I turn a new page, I’m becoming
Something more than who I am
Something new

Magic mountain, speak to me
Magic mountain, Ninderry

She called them to her, a new discovery
Unexpected treasure they found, a new family
One family

Magic mountain, speak to me
Magic mountain, Ninderry

Like slience after rain, peace comes again
And my heart is still, knowing together we will
Rise above, lift ourselves up, higher & higher now
Rise above, lift ourselves up, higher & higher now
Rise above, lift ourselves up, higher & higher now
Rise above, lift ourselves up

Magic mountain, speak to me
Magic mountain, Ninderry
Track Name: Sun & Moon
Sun in the sky, illuminate my heart,
And all that I am is revealed,
Moon overhead, illuminate my soul,
Let all that is broken be healed.
