Litha Summer Solstice

When the Sun reaches highest in the sky. We celebrate Midsummer. Litha. The Summer Solstice is a beautiful time. Gatherings, celebrations, rituals.

Yesterday (13th May 2017) I began writing and recording my new Earth Tree Healing album. Called ‘8 Sabbats.’

The music journeys through the sunrise to a crescendo of celebration. This album will feature a lot more acoustic instruments such as the sitar, mandolin, autoharp and my guitars. Getting back to my roots. Which began with folk, evolving to Grunge and beyond with the influence of the 80’s.  I’ve found my Zen with Paganism, Mother Earth, Spirituality, Meditation and Reiki.

I’m releasing this as a single on digital stores June 3rd. Enjoy. Claudine.

Namaste

I own a beautiful old Sitar from India. I recorded this track ‘Namaste.’  As an Improvisational piece. Its really quite challenging, but also fun to capture and video the multi-track recording process. Camera tripod collapses and cups of Chai tea. I indulge, meditate and drift in to my Earth Tree Healing music. Each track leave me (and I hope my listeners with a sense of wellbeing) – Enjoy

MIDLANDER BLUES

Divas wept
They Talk about convention
Fake news under a microscope
Born in a heatwave
Declared renegade
Reptilian holograms
Wasps in my hair
I’m at the end of this leather
nag a ram an anagram

No one’s gonna mess with my big red moon cup
The noises in the bedroom
Making up with fucks

In an anorak
Is a razor back
Don’t look back
Panic attack

But I still love you
and I want you to unwind
I broke the mirror
But reflected over time
And my head banging
Come on pour me some more wine

I followed through when i went to the zoo
That’s what you get for queuing
It’s not so crazy believe in Tena lady
To catch your poo in

There’s menopause around the corner
Spa weekends and breath taking saunas

Silent stifled screams
Cock Wombles….
