Hard Copy includes booklet with additional album art and printed lyrics.
Birth Day explores archetypal imagery with extreme sensitivity to the complexity and daring of shamanic spiritual experience. It took a while to find the musical sound that was as free form and unbridled as the lyrics. The natural world was most aligned to the source of the language: subtle, passionate, textured, alive, unpredictable, sensual, and powerful. It's a love letter to a universal consciousness. There is no love between people mentioned, but only a force that is alive and alove in all things.
The songs themselves are not afraid to go to unchartered places, connecting us through the development of this path about the nature of divinity and the divinity in nature.
8 songs, 3 poems, orchestrated by field recordings of religious ritual, birds, rain, and city life. Written and arranged by Emily Stern.
