about

Blending my vocals with harp, guitar, recorders, hand drums, dulcimer, lute, and other acoustic instruments, I've tried my best to create an organic, magical, and nature-based sound.

This album was a 5 year journey I will not soon forget! Thank you for listening!

Track Name: The Willow Maid
A young man walked through the forest
with his quiver and hunting bow
He heard a young girl singing
and followed the sound below
There he found the maiden
who lives in the willow

He called to her as she listened
from a ring of toadstools red
'Come with me my maiden
come from thy willow bed'
She looked at him serenely
and only shook her head.

'See me now, a ray of light in the moondance
See me now, I cannot leave this place
Hear me now, a strain of song in the forest
Don't ask me, to follow where you lead'

A young man walked through the forest
with a flower and coat of green
His love had hair like fire
her eyes an emerald sheen
She wrapped herself in beauty
so young and so serene

He stood there under the willow
and he gave her the yellow bloom
'Girl my heart you've captured
oh I would be your groom'
She said she'd wed him never
not near, nor far, nor soon

'See me now, a ray of light in the moondance
See me now, I cannot leave this place
Hear me now, a strain of song in the forest
Don't ask me, to follow where you lead'

A young man walked through the forest
with an axe sharp as a knife
I'll take the green-eyed fairy
and she shall be my wife
With her I'll raise my children
with her I'll live my life

The maiden wept when she heard him
when he said he'd set her free
He took his axe and used it
to bring down her ancient tree
'Now your willow's fallen
now you belong to me'

'See me now, a ray of light in the moondance
See me now, I cannot leave this place
Hear me now, a strain of song in the forest
Don't ask me, to follow where you lead'

She followed him out the forest, and collapsed upon the earth
Her feet had walked but a distance, from the green land of her birth She faded into a flower, that would bloom for one bright eve
He could not take from the forest, what was never meant to leave
Track Name: No One But You
See the summer's light,
round with rays so bright
fading out of sight
melting in night

Hold me unto you
No one but you
No one but you
Hold me unto you
No one but you
No one but you

All the world is dear
when my love is near
Oh to linger here
Far from all I fear

Love is like sailing by moonlight
Reading the stars, navigating by night
I know tomorrow I'll be closer to you
You are the one that I want
No one but you

See the morning light
round with rays so bright
waking from the night
brilliant is the sight
Track Name: Round and Round
I love every flower, every bird, every bee
and everything surrounding you and me
Be the night around me when the stars fall down
we'll watch as the heavens turn round and round
Watch as they turn around

Round, round, and round
Watch as they turn around

I love every bower, every leaf, every tree
and everything surrounding you and me
Be the world around me when the leaves fall down
we'll watch as the seasons turn round and round
Watch as they turn around

Round round and round
Watch as they turn around

Be the star encircling
All my joy on painted wings
Sail horizon bound with me
Let our love forever me
Let it all go round and round

I love every hour, every star, every sea
and everything surrounding you and me
Be the wind around me when the rain falls down
we'll watch as the storm turns round and round
Watch as they turn around
Track Name: Butterfly's Dream
Hana no ue ni
Nemuru kochou no yume ni dani
koyoi no ame wa
shirazu ya aruran


Whispering from the sky,
the raindrops fall tonight
Even this gentle cry
stirs not the butterfly's dreaming
Streaming skies are breathing,
breathing into me
All the magic this night brings


Hana no ue ni
Nemuru kochou no yume ni dani
koyoi no ame wa
shirazu ya aruran
Track Name: Birds of a Feather
I will always love you
I love you
and with this kiss I make this vow
to love you forever
Like birds of a feather we'll be
You with me

And I will always need you
I need you
It's not to late to say this now
I'll love you forever
Like birds of a feather we'll be
You with me

Oh when my heart was locked up tight
another day, another day
without you burning in me bright
I found in the night, light
here, here with you

I will always love you
I love you
and with this kiss I make this vow
to love you forever
Like birds of a feather we'll be
You with me
Track Name: Will O' The Wisp
Like fire, you know, you know, even the stars you'd inspire
Like flame, I know, I know, that loving you will bring me pain

I know I've taken all leave of my senses, I want to be
closer to you. Nearing your light I become the nothingness...
....lose myself in your light

How can I make you take me away to the land that you
call your own? Give your love to me. Make me so happy,
I won't ever want to go home

Will o' the wisp, I can't turn away or resist
White fire deep in the blue. Hopelessly drawn into you

Like truth, you know, you know, everybody loves you, adores you
Like air, I know, I know, that I'm invisible, I'm not there

Can't be too quick to deny my heart, it's beating so
fast in the dark. I'm like a planet revolving around you,
why then can't you want me too?

Drawing me closer, leading my heart away
It's getting darker, longing for you this way
You're like a beacon, leading me through the night
Do I deserve you? Do I deserve your light?

Will o' the wisp, I can't turn away or resist
White fire deep in the blue, hopelessly drawn into you
Track Name: Winter Moon
In the woodlands low, born of ice and snow,
there's a maiden weeping tonight.
Snow falls softly 'neath the winter moon

Forest bare and white, she dwells there by night
Listen to her cry sorrow's song.
Snow falls softly 'neath the winter moon

Breathless, icy, bright. Daughter of the night.
Oh, who do you cry for?
Keening softly 'neath the winter moon

Fuyu no tsuki, fuyu no tsuki, kanashimi utsusu fuyu no tsuki
Kogoeru fuyu no tsuki no yoru ni yuki no otome hana o mistuke ni
yuki ni umoreta sanrin no naka o tabi tsuzukena sai

Traveler passing through, feet all bare , his smile was true
His eyes shone with starlight
he waked softly 'neath the winter moon

Love made my heart soar, you're the one I've waited for
Stay with me forever
she cried softly 'neath the winter moon

In the snow he stayed, from my side he did not stray
My hands could not warm him
He died softly 'neath the winter moon
Track Name: So Far Away and So Near
On this night the pale moon flies
through the endless starry skies
So hold me close
feel the rhythm of my heart, echoing far
Take my hand
Lead me where to souls could soar
Oh, so far away and so near

I have seen your eyes before
in another life I lived
In innocence
I imagined you could fly close to the stars
Here I am
waiting for the moon to rise
Oh, so far away and so near

I have felt eternity
in another life I lived
On feathered wings
chase my spirit far and wide, ageless and free
Take me there
always towards that place of peace
Oh, so far away and so near
