We have a full-time sound studio and a production budget. equipment is not an issue.
Change YourselfWhat good could there possibly be for us in 2020? One of the biggest gifts we've come away with is learning how to let go of control. As much as we want other people to see the world the way we see it and to believe as we do, so that we feel safe, we've learned that you the only place you can find the deep and divine safety is deep inside. That's what our latest single is about, changing ourselves, not other people.
Livin' the Given
Livin' the GivenMy mom's illness and death forced me to ask myself, am I living what I've been given? Am I fearlessly following my heart? This is what our new song is about: taking the driver's seat of your life and pointing it in the direction of love and joy. Hope you dig the groove. Noah
The Honorable Waking Bear
The Honorable Waking BearThe Honorable Waking Bear is about a wild bear who has a mid-life crisis and decides to never hibernate again because life is too precious :) I wrote the song while my mom was dying of cancer. Thanks for listening! Noah 🙏🌎🎸🎹⚡️💖
Catch UsThis tune brings a playfulness to facing fears within, who says it has to be such a struggle? What if we danced & cheered our way through our inner work, applauding ourselves after the deep and difficult emotional healings? The more courageously we face our fears and the more we release old wounds and traumas, the more these fears fade away. This new lightness of being brings us so much joy, self acceptance and love. Our dream life has the chance to truly emerge.
Filled With Dreams
Filled With Dreams“Filled with Dreams” is a song of absolute gratitude and appreciation for life. It’s about waking up to how lucky we are to be alive, no matter what we may be going through, and the knowledge that we are all guided on this timeless and eternal journey through many lifetimes.
Trust The Sky
Trust The SkyMany of us have lost touch with Mama Earth, no longer knowing how to communicate with trees or intuitively understand which plants are safe to eat, which are poisonous, or what medicinal qualities they hold without looking in a book or online for these answers. Native tribes across the world, we honor you for holding this higher consciousness on the planet. This song is connecting us to that beautiful synergy we all still hold somewhere deep in our collective memory and DNA, reawakening our senses, for those of us who have forgotten. ~ Ivy
Kisses on Tears
Kisses on TearsKisses on Tears is an open-hearted love song about two people finding each other after years of being single and the enormous appreciation that is felt when you finally meet that right person. This is what happened and what inspired me to write this song for Ivy, and the love we felt when opening our hearts and lives to each other.
New York Mermaid
New York MermaidNew York Mermaid describes a love affair I had with a New York mermaid when I was in college. The "Mermaid" was actually an older woman...a cougar.... and, if I'm being honest with myself, I was quite inexperienced and afraid. It's not always the ladies who get taken advantage of predatory men. It can go both ways. She pretty much chewed me up and spit me out when she was done with me.
Aha MomentBreath in the sun and bring in a moment of bliss with our newest song, Aha Moment! Embrace hope, and trust in humankind's limitless possibilities to rise above. We're all infinite and capable of weathering any storm.
DownstreamDownstream is a song about taking the path of least resistance, following one's joy and finding love and gratitude through it all, the ups and the downs. It's a song that helps us to align with source energy as conceptualized by the law of attraction.
BigfootThis is a song I wrote when I was single and felt like Bigfoot, lonely, misunderstood and unseen. Wait for the bridge after the second chorus, it's explosive!
There She Goes
There She GoesEven after a break-up a deep and eternal connection between lovers can remain. Essentially, it's a happy break up song :) Hope you enjoy it! Noah
