Beneath all Bloom translates years of vivid dreamscapes into song. A labour of love it was written during an incredibly transient period of my life. The album saw two years of musical growth, the beginning of a career, 13 moves, a marriage, a birth and a death. It is a project that reflects shifting spaces, skills and emotional states.

This soft release on Bandcamp will be followed by merch announcements (think visual representations of each dream...!) and full digital distribution.

Track Name: First Glimpse
Light pull me
Captivated I feel spirits flowing through me
Embark, claim your odyssey
There is a second sun beyond the ridge that waits for me

Light the doubt
My calling carries on the wind
I breathe it in and out

The wind grow stronger
How I cower
While in the vision she stands fiercely with my power

Light end this dormancy
Asking who are you by showing who I am to be
Embark, claim your odyssey
There is a second sun beyond the ridge that waits for me

The mountain trembles
Terrace crumbles
I lose the pathway to my past
How nature humbles
Track Name: Somewhere Calm
This cloud will end in whispers, willingly
Let everything happen
and choose to stand among them,
dare alchemy
It's in the unfolding
From here the sun moves gentle, vitality
Let everything happen
Your stillness will resurface, duality
Set subtle intention

Water in the distance
Cresting uncertainty
Bracing anticipation
Will it sweep us away?

I know I must run,
Towards and not away from
I want them to see,
That I faced the raging see
Track Name: Beneath all Bloom
Go on now
Mamma says,
"Pick up your feet, lay them graceful, tread discreetly"

Let go now
Spirit says
"You're more than you know"
Buds to bloom dear, she whispers,

I've been standing, peering past the edge
Mind oscillating, toes gripped to the ledge

Go on now

I breathe deep, beneath all blue

Go on now

I gasp in wonder, when I do
Track Name: Constant Mountain
Afraid of all the unknown
Afraid of how she might grow

She's tired of all the unknown
She's tired of how she might grow

Nothing is still
We can't comprehend the pace that the mountains roam
Heart quickens in stillness
We can't comprehend the pace that the mountains roam
Track Name: Lightly Lighted
See my posture, I don't cower
Even water spilling after
Backseat, highway, capture me Hunter
Look down love, you're all bright lights!

Women's house, glass, built on water
Waiting for you to figure out you love her
Ocean, verdure, ambient creature
Look down love, you're all bright lights!

Eyes closed, "it's your own light!"

Know you beyond my own body
If I see it, does that make it memory?
Becoming or already belonging?
Look down love, you're all bright lights!
Track Name: At the Estuary
As a child I heard the water
with an ear to my father
resting head against his belly
then again at the Estuary

Verdant vista, oh lithe lupa
Gorged on glue, such fluent fauna
Cascading corridor, opulent aura
Serpentine stream, such fertile flora

From our waste wounded
sent to his wicken
sallow litter
go screamed the clergyman

His eyes spoke yes,
bemused beguilement
oh prescient reverie
undo defilement
