Remember the excellent power within yourself
to be true to who you are.
Teri Hitt : vocals, guitar
I was pretty much imprinted by the music that came through in the 1970s. The analog sound coupled with the feeling of discovery evident in a wide range of music over the airwaves really fed me. The radio stations were full of great music and every song I heard influenced me in some way.
I love music that testifies. I guess it all does in one way or another, but when you can really hear the message the band is getting across and there is a connection with now, it helps you.
That’s what I’m talking about.
The vibes that many artists were able to pull through then were and are stunning feats of consciousness. Not to say it isn’t happening now, it is. Just to say that was what really got me to “the river” so to speak. The songs that had “it” pointed me in the right direction early on. That feeling like a beacon through a fog calls me on and that’s why I write songs.
When you listen to really good music it sinks in and creates a space for you. Real present music changes you. It feeds you and gives you a platform to think about things beyond the material world.
The songs on this CD are a work of Love. My take (with the help of some amazing musicians) on what we are going through, living through and BE-ing through.
Just my part in the Revolution of Perception.
I once had a dream where I met myself in a parallel reality.
