how do i walk…
& bow constantly?
sacred songs & hebrew medicine mantras
i am singing and drumming, and amazingly talented friends add percussion as perfect spicing… with the grace of master musician, jeremy bleich, a tremendously lovely piano rolls through 2 songs, and the ancient oud resounds in another, as the electric bass holds some groovy ground too.
it is to pray with, sway with, find refuge and strength with.

one-takes, advanced living room recordings …revealing the imperfect creature while shining the spontaneous, raging love-ful, prayer-ridden heart burst singing of us “creatures” of the divine.
all melodies are unique, gifted to me in spontaneous moments of deep contemplation with ancient text (except 2 pieces noted as original lyrics). most musical arrangements are spontaneous too, in the 1-take recording.
i love this music and how it moved me and moved through me in the right moment. may it be an offering, that touches you – perfectly!
