about

A Call to Stand EP is an acoustic-roots record with a bit of groove thrown in. It’s about belonging and becoming, individual and collective rising, the power of expression, embracing paradox to find a whole and practicing Love beyond fear. They are songs to support the call of living a heart-led and soul-full life.

‘Eleanor’s music had my spine tingling…there is joy, power and the invitation to step up and do your part as a human at this time on the earth’
‘Inspiring and regenerating’
‘Immensely powerful and stirring’
‘A call to stand captures the spirit within us’
‘I’m still vibrating to your beautiful song’

Track Name: a call to stand
Can you feel it can you feel it? Feel the hunger of a calling?
Yes it’s here and getting nearer, oh the Mother’s cry is dawning
Can you hear oh can you hear it? Can you hear the women rising?
Can you see oh can you see it? See us coming out of hiding

Awaken inspiration
Dare for transformation
Turn this love to action
Blossom blossom blossom…

This is a call to stand, this is your call to stand, this is our call to stand, this is our call…

Step into your power, step into your wisdom, step into your freedom, step into your vision
Stand for yourself so you can stand for another, stand in your heart so you can stand for the world.

This is a call to stand, this is your call to stand, this is our call to stand, this is our call…
Track Name: this is love
Has anyone ever told you you are beautiful?
Has anyone ever told you you are whole?
Has anyone ever told you you are lovable?
Has anyone ever helped you feel at home?

Well I’m telling you this right now, stand up,
In the middle of your darkest time
In the middle of these changing times
Right from the middle of your soul

You’re limitless, you’re weightless, you’re falling, so wakeful
You’re powerful, irreplaceable, you’re fierce and so gentle

This is love, this is here, this is love, it’s bigger than fear….
This is love, this is here, this is love, it’s bigger than it’s bigger than me…

You’re limitless, you’re weightless, you're welcome, so ageless
You’re powerful, so truthful, you are enough and so beautiful...
Track Name: freedom song
We are gathering in our power
We are holding in our power
We are diving in our power
We are rising in our power
We are standing in our power
We are opening in our power
We are dancing in our power
This is freedom and this is freedom's song
Track Name: over and over
I’m singing my sorrow, I’m singing my rage, I’m singing this pain out and I’ll sing it over and over again
I’m singing for freedom, I’m singing for peace, I’m singing for justice and I’ll sing until I’ve got just what I need

Sing it with me sister, sing it with me brother, sing it with me father, sing it with me mother
Don’t you stop me now, don’t you stuff this down, keep it flowing out and sing it over and over

Over and over over and over, over and over, I’ll sing it over and over...

From the mountain high, out to the ocean wide, up to the moon and sky I’ll sing it over and over..
When the rain is pouring, when the wind is roaring, feel that spirit forming, sing it over and over
through the fear and doubting, when the walls surrounding, though the voices shouting sing it….
feel that beating heart, feel it break apart, then feel the rising start and sing it over over…

Sing over the bones....
Track Name: all is well
If I am love, I am grief,
If I i am fighting, I am peace
If I am joy, then I am rage
If I am freedom, I’m the cage
If am waking, I am sleep
If I’m the fast, then I’m the feast
If I am rising, I’m the fall
And I'm Letting go, to hold it all.
So broken, unending, unravelling, and mending,
and all i know, come what may, in this moment, i’m ok

Cos' I want to be light, and I want to be black
I want to keep going, and I want to turn back
I want to be different, and I want to be the same
I want to be wild, and I want be tame
I want to be invisible, and I want to be seen
I want to be dreamer, and I want to get real
I want to be life and I want to be death
I want to go under and I want to take breath
I want to be with you, and I want to be alone
I want to be an island, and I want to come home
So broken, unending, unravelling, and mending,
and all i know, time will tell, in this moment, all is well

Holding on, letting go, be the earth, be the flow
Be the shadows, be the light, be the day, be the night
Be the dawn, be the dusk, be the doubt and be the trust, be the mother be the child, for the ages, for my own

If I am love, I am grief,
If I i am fighting, I am peace
If I am joy, then I am rage
If I am freedom, I’m the cage
And I'm ok, and we're ok, and all is well.
Track Name: piece by piece
I’m building my spirit, I’m building my song, I’m building what’s in it, piece by piece I’m home
I’m building my spirit, I’m building my song, I’m building what’s in it, piece by piece I belong

Piece by peice, stone by stone, beat by beat I’m stronger
Breathe by breathe, bone by bone, blood and flesh together

We’re building this spirit, we’re building this song, we’re building what’s in it, piece by piece we belong.
