“Our Father Mother Who art above and within.
Hallowed be Thy Name in twofold Trinity.
In Wisdom, Love and Equity Thy Reign (Kingdom) come to all.
Thy will be done, As in Heaven so in Earth.
Give us day by day to partake of Thy holy Bread,
And the fruit of the living Vine.
As Thou dost forgive us our trespasses, so may we
Forgive others who trespass against us.
Show upon us Thy goodness, that to others we may
Show the same.
In the hour of temptation, deliver us from evil.
Amun”

randy elizabeth 1LINER NOTES:

Dear Listener,

Please be advised that I have invited the energy and vibrations of many different cultures here in the spirit of play, exploration, and my own process as a white, bi-cultural woman of European descent. As I am blended, and so do I blend the cultures that I encounter into a tapestry of magic and meaning. I have done this with the utmost intention of respect and honor. These are powerful vibrations, and I approach them as ancient wise guides and medicines.

If a chant or a culture resonates with you, I encourage you to follow the trail and explore the ancient versions for yourself.

My wish and intention for you in listening to this music, is to find mantras, melodies and rhythms that bring you the frequency medicine you need in your life right now. These are the kind of musical "hooks" that you do want to get stuck in your head.

I also intend with deep consciousness for all cultures and traditions to be respected, in the name of a path of compassion and unity.

Some of the English words that I sing, are my poetry and prose that I adapt from the translations, except where noted as prayers from specific cultures. 

All chants and mantras within a song are selected for the thread of meaning specific to that song.

Sonic Blessings,
Elizabeth

randy elizabeth 3LINER NOTES:

This continuation of Desert Journey I is the same creation process. It’s a back and forth process with Elizabeth and Randy. We are constantly finding each other on the map of invisible sound vibrations and connecting. That’s the healing of music, a reconnection, a constant connection—a place of togetherness. It’s a chance to practice putting a frequency out there and seeing if you can find someone else on that same frequency. When we start, I’ll give Randy a few words, or an example of a song, and Randy will create a soundscape out of the pure ether. I’ll find the place in that soundscape that I’m looking for and match words to the sounds using an internet search. The world wide web is a genius place of intention made manifest. We can manifest our desires in record time. After I find the words, or mantras, I play with the music and find a melody, and add words of my own (my notes for these songs read: acceptance, peace, self-knowledge, awareness, the present moment is my true self, transformation—those are the threads of this creation). Then we record the vocals, and I really rely on Randy’s ear and editing skills.

dj II artistsPercussionist- Leddie Garcia. So proud to have Leddie back to collaborate on these unique grooves. Leddie’s most recent projects include: Cynthia Erivo, Keith Harris, Lady GaGa, Ariana Granda, Blood Pop and Burns .... Just to name a few !The recording of the vocals is magic. It’s the place where conscious sound intention lives in a field of love. The magic intentions of rhythm and melody meet and birth a song in the loving acceptance and welcome of the songwriters. Then comes the fun part of finding and hiring spectacular musicians. In addition to the projects long time percussionist, Leddie Garcia, and classic multi-instrumentalist, Hasan Minowi, we have a very special new guest on this album. He is the violin player for one of my favorite all-time albums, “The Last Temptation of Christ” soundtrack by the extraordinary Peter Gabriel. He plays on the NOKE track. That track is dedicated to a dear friend Becky and her son Leo. Becky lives that unconditional love for her son, which takes her to a place of willingness to travel the golden thread of life based on the direction of her heart, rather than the directives of “experts.” Because indeed, “no one knows everything, but everyone knows something.” Thank you to everyone who worked on this album, from musicians to graphic designs (Alex and Robin at InCreation) to friends who take the time to give feedback (Jean Renard). Thank you for joining us on this desert journey of discovering the oases of love all around us.

Sonic Blessings,
Elizabeth & Randy
