Title track co-written with Brian Martin, 'We Begin' was offered for a ceremonial walk facilitated by Raelene Byrne on On 12-12-2017, resembling the shape of the snake, representing the power of shedding the old and allowing our full potential to shine.

When Raelene described the event to me I said, 'I'll write you a song for it'. It's a powerful intention and so much in my life changed from that point forward! This idea inspired the evolution of my music and the studio performances that followed and we sought to capture that brilliance and embody richness.

Brian and I have been playing together for many years and this is the first song we have written together. I brought the lyrics and kept my music sketch aside, while I invited Brian to find his own melody and feel. The end result is what happened when we brought our ideas together. The song was finished in about an hour!



Peeling away , the layers of the old
we are reborn anew
thoughts and reflections, moving from fear to joy F Eb
we are moving through

We are born, and born again,
We die and are reborn my friend
Shedding our skin, reveal the light within
Stepping through we begin

With death and rebirth, we create our new earth
Carrying our hopes and our dreams
From doubt and confusion, we move through the illusion
What is it that we gleam?

In this moment, we let go
In this moment, let it flow

Om naamha shivaya
Shiva om namaha
