How would you describe your music?
I am a singer/songwriter and wanderlust, with a penchant for telling true stories. Sometimes they are my own stories. Sometimes I’ve just borrowed them from another. Often the Gods and Goddesses and other Entities that inhabit my head will whisper, or shout, the stories they want me to tell. All this is delivered with bluesy vocals, straight-ahead, rhythmic 12 string acoustic guitar, djembe, or frame drum. My audience/my friends are part of every performance and we laugh and cry together.
I have three CDs out right now. From 2013, “Goddess Kiss’d” is a collection of songs written at festivals over the years. In 2014, I released “The Undertaker’s Daughter” which features some pretty transformational material. “Solitaire”, released early 2015, relays my own journey from perfectly happy Solitary to perfectly happy upon finding my Tribe!
What inspired you to start this business?
The day job was killin’ me! More about that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-L6lJgRMRZQ Seriously, the stories and the music that began spilling through my heart in 2009 simply demanded that I step onto the Bardic Path. I’m inspired every single day by the good folks who open their hearts and their homes to me, as I travel and share my Muse.
Where can we find you?
I play festivals, metaphysical shops, book stores, and house concerts, and I’ve been sleeping on couches and air mattresses all over the Eastern half of the US for the last three years. I’m hoping to get out to the West coast in 2016/2017, as well. You can find out more about me and where I’m playing at www.mamaginamusic.com
