Birth Day is an album of 8 songs woven with lyrical melodies and 3 intricately crafted poems orchestrated almost entirely by natural sounds. It explores archetypes and the divine feminine in our collective unconscious with extreme sensitivity to the complexity and daring of spiritual experience. Musical accompainment includes chant, prayer, cicadas, bees, birds, heartbeat, the shofar, a full home birth, thunderstorms, and a conglomerate of conversations on Amsterdam Avenue on a Saturday at midnight. Two of the poems, "Songbirds," renamed "Soul Sings," and "Remembering Love" were first posted on this blog.
