We’re emerging slowly from our winter layers- and what a winter it’s been. I’ve been drawn so deep in grief, and quiet, I almost didn’t hear the earth whispering: ‘bloom.’ Almost.

Grateful as ever to share the songs of our hearts in this time, and for the wonderful turnout we had for our EP Release. The wind is still cold, but our clandestine knowing that the light strengthening means we can turn our faces to the sun.

Long Live the Light,



It's time we're getting back to brighter days…


Im a grateful song catcher and I when I'm feeling brave (and sometimes when I'm not), I perform them with some of my dearest friends.

I'm an odd bird and fairly stubborn and pretty old fashioned, so this lil' site has been a long time coming! Pardon our dust as we build in music, blog posts, event calendar and more!

We're making a record.  We're sharing it in four parts, one for each solstice & equinox in the year.

The Sun is getting stronger, and Brighter Days is growing. We're two installments in, and Winter's End is on its way! follow us for brand new music and hear it as soon as we release it!

Have we met before?

xoxoxo, and then some,
