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…

this is love 04:26
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...

freedom song 03:24
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

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....

all is well 06:03
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.

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.

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’
