about

Spirals is an acoustic/folk record released in Dec 2013.
The songs reflect a personal passage on the flipside of loss, travels and adventures to the wilds and the stillness inside and out. It is about return and reconnection and the simplicity, inspiration and joy found there. It speaks of nature’s elemental mirror where death is a necessity and life holds the inexhaustible power to renew.

Spirals is about the cracking open of a conditioned life and the opportunity to wake up into something new. It is about change beginning within yourself before it can flow outwards in the world. It is about following an endless spiral that circles from the edge to the centre and then out again, each time going a little deeper.

It is a collection of stories inspired by many places, people and pieces of art, a record of a particular time and part of a cycle that goes on and on…

‘What You’re Looking For is the best song I heard in 2013 by a mile… check out this song if you want to feel something listening to an acoustic track again’ - Stephen Hunt
‘The songs take you on a journey through life with all the joy and pain of being human and gives shape to our own emotions' - Justine Humphrey
‘This is the work of a women who enters the depth of her life and sings her self home and this transmits to others’ - Pippa Bondy
‘Beautiful lyrics that surprise me all over again’ - Pat Johnson
'Like a darker, more gutsy Beth Orton, these songs bloom with an honest, and at times cut-throat emotionality, all beautifully carried via her clarity of feeling, her warm intelligence, her rich vocal style and her visceral guitar playing. These are songs that burrow their way into your ears and stay in your head and heart for many months after initial listening, slowly wrapping their elegant sensitivity around your own experiences' - Beccy Owen

Track Name: To Fall or To Fly
Have courage my friends
When you’re leaving home, you’re leaving home again

This song is for the ones who dare to leave the cave
This song is for the ones who dare to stay awake
This song is for the open for the loving for the brave
A song for reclamation and a song for space and place
So have courage my friends
When you’re leaving home, you’re leaving home again

When you hop on a train to take you home
But you’ve come so far that everything’s gone
And when you’ve come off track, you’re done with maps
Forever moving forward and there’s no way back…

It’s hard when you awaken when you find your home
It don’t exist anymore except somewhere between
Your heart your feet and in your bones
So be sure that you are always on the road
