The Earth Trilogy
I have always been fascinated by the sounds and textures of Nature and have found it to be my greatest teacher. As a child I was extremely sensitive and was diagnosed Autistic at age three. Nature was the only place I found peace during a difficult childhood and I would spend hours just running my hands through the warm sand enjoying the unique beauty of every separate grain as it shone in the sun. Soothed by the music of water.
Though my parents were told “I would never function as an adult in society” they didn’t listen and through love, support and determination I began thriving in maths and sciences, yet still struggling with languages and the social world. I found a passion for photographing the textures of my ‘best friend’ Nature and wanted to become a National Geographic photographer when I grew up. But I struggled through school being a social outcast and constantly missing school for health reasons.
By age 20 my struggle to be normal and do well caught up with me, and my health crashed. I took time out in Nature to try and recover and had a profound life-changing experience where I began hearing exquisitely beautiful music emerging from the natural world around me. This musical voice spoke to me and told me so clearly I still hear it as if it were yesterday that I am here to create this music. I had never played music before so this was a shock but the voice was so strong I listened.
Music began pouring through me and though it did not immediately become a career it became my pathway to healing. This spiritual awakening led me to study with shamans, healers and musicians from around the world exploring the mystical and healing dimensions of Sound, Spirit and Nature and also informed my other passions of astrology and photography.
Now as an award* winning composer and musician specializing in healing music my music is loved by many alternative healers and body workers and found worldwide in yoga studios and healing centers.
I create the music with a wide variety of all acoustic world instruments. Vibraphone and bells were the first instruments I learned after my awakening because the sounds I was hearing had an ethereal bell like and watery quality and these instruments came as close to the sound as I could get. From there I began playing hammered dulcimer, gongs, guitars and vocals. My concerts are an interactive and engaging musical healing experience rather than being a show. I love taking my audience on a magic carpet ride of sounds and songs where they can have a taste of the mystical while relaxing, singing or dancing.
