A CD of moonlight and passion, with Celtic feel and Latin rhythms. First, I invite you to fly on the wind in the first song, "Imaging" losing your landbound body to soar above and through the storms and magic that inspired this song. On it is "Demon Lover," a song I wrote after a vivid dream, with the "Demon" as that person (man or woman, there is always one in our lives) that comes and steals us away, haunting our waking hours and our dreaming, with a touch of fire that smolders in memory. Even when one is old and dying, the passion is as real as in that first moment, the kisses like fire and ice on smooth skin, shivery delectable. In "To Dance" you can join your dance (whatever your "bliss") with the belly dancer, Jodi, this was written for. Let the joy of doing what you love best lift you, body, soul, heart, while all of nature joins you. Next, is "Sing down the Moon," inspired by a story in which a little girl is sick and just knows that the moon will cure her. I thought about that on a moonlit night when the moon was shining in her full glory in a pond and in the sky and felt that we COULD "Sing down the Moon," which lights the dark with "soft, silvery sweetness." Sing along and sing your own moon, with her calming light, into your soul. Then dance. "Nighttime" will find you then in a dark garden with, as your lover steps out of the silvery mist into your arms. The mood switches with "Sweet Revenge" written for battered women, as the woman in the song plots her revenge on her abusive wizard husband who has turned her into a dog (a bi#@*) and her accused lover into a horse (stud). (There is a book or short story, not sure which, I am writing based on this song--keep looking). "Magpies," written after the loss of a friend, calls you to remember to be real in your dealings with others. This was written about gossips and pain givers who, amazingly, after the death of my friend and coworker, were suddenly best friends to his grieving family, using their false faces as the song says to be "first in line to the coffins." Or you can enjoy (oddly enjoy) the "Torture Chamber," a very tongue-in-cheek song inspired (well afterward actually) by a scene in Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles," in which there is a medieval figure who is doing the hanging. (Another favorite of certain parts of my fan base--The Seamus for one, Ambra is another). He says (after being asked if he will hang this guy) "Oh, thur, I am thooooo busy but I can probably fit him in about 1:00." Look closely and you will see he is putting a noose around the horse's neck too, as he is a very thorough man, committed to his job. The song was written to introduce his victims to the torturer's dungeon, who subscribes regularly to "Dungeon Magazine" (if there was such a thing) and always has the latest devices. My other inspiration was an actual tour of a recreated dungeon from medieval times at a Renaissance Faire where it was clear to me that anyone who used those tools must have a diabolically creative imagination and truly enjoy this horrendous job (I also use this one in venues when I am doing a walk on. It is amazing to see how carefully people watch me afterwards :). Then comes "Darkly Waltzing." In a dark room, lit eerily in blue tones, you will waltz with an invisible lover, as other couples swirl unseen around you. I end with "The Nightbird," my signature piece and a favorite of some of my fans. (Annie, this one is for you).
