Original Tunes

I love to create and receive these little layer songs! It can be a process sometimes, and most often I wait until the moment strikes and just try to get out of my own way! But it's a priority to create the space for this, and to incorporate it into my work as a song sharer. I wrote and arranged these songs, and anyone who feels drawn is so welcome to sing or teach them to others. It's pretty darn heartwarming when folks breathe new life into these songs with their groups or friends! If you are teaching or performing these songs in your choir, it would be greatly appreciated if you would consider making a  donation  to support my creative journey and the upkeep of this collection. Teaching tracks are also available either through a link with the song, or upon request.

Cut off their limbs, suffocate their vision

Culture is not your friend
If you let it hold you up it will throw you in

If we are not living in harmony
