about

Troy Lush (guitar) literally dreamed the main riff and I came up with the lyrics in an improvisational jam session a few days later. The other players are Mark Deutsch on his invention the "bazantar" and multi-instrumentalist Tim Rayborn on percussion. The Sidhe (pronounced Shee) are the otherworldly beings of Celtic lore, pictured here as the great goddess.

lyrics

She blues the air
She speaks the tree
She moves the moon
To pull the Sea
She
plants the seed
To earth the peace
She slips the eye
Flies on the
Leaf
She curves the time
To mark the face
To paint the years
The life to trace
Strikes the clock
She turns the curl
She burst the stars
She births the world
She weilds the wind
To shell a beach
She salts the sea
Sugars the peach
She blues the air
She speaks the tree
She moves the moon
To pull
the sea.....

This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
