about

After Fiend got out of the Atlantic deal and became Shimmer, we started going up to Oakland and recording with my ole pal Josh Heller at his Guerilla Euphonics 16 track studio. As we no longer had a regular drummer, Josh rang up Dave Tweedie, with whom he'd worked on other projects, and he became someone we played with on and off for the next few years.

lyrics

Could if You Would

If you
If you

They have told me to be fearless
And then gotten scared
Scared of the limitless All

Scared of their own expansion
Scared of a higher dimension
Scared to rise
Scared to fall

Could if you would
You could if you would
You could if you would
Ya could if you would
Ya could if you would

Don’t you be like
Those come and go drifters
Oscillating like a transistor

Who lured by the liberating flame
Then sneak out of the stage door
Scared of immensity
Slunking back into the
Same old thing

Could if you would
You could if you would
You could if you would
Ya could if you would
Ya could if you would

If you...

If you dared
To be unprepared
Ya could if you would

If you dared
If you cared
Ya could if you would

about

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I spent some years writing and performing with ensembles that remain important in the history of Bay Area arts, then did time tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC, followed by a decade in Europe, recording all the while, before coming "home" to NOLA. This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
