Our New single!!

New Single Release!!

I'm thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of my family - my Mother Sorsorne. This song was a creative fusion between one of my original lyrical songs and a traditional Guinean melody called Sorsorne brought to me by Craig Bravo Miller and his teacher Mohammed Kouyate. The original lyrics are in the Baga language and interestingly refer to daughters thanking their mothers for giving them the tools for life. This version (which is not meant to be a translation) has human beings thanking our mother earth for everything we have. We fall short of paying our thanks every day. You may name your price for the song, all proceeds will be donated to environmental projects!

NEW LIVE STUDIO RECORDING 
AT SOUL GRAFFITI STUDIOS
"ABOUT A TUNE" BY HEATHER NORMANDALE

Heather Normandale and Honey of the Heart melt their smooth and vibrant voices together in 
this studio performance of one of Heather's newest songs. "About a Tune" takes inspiration from the musical sounds in the bay area and beyond, with swingy jazz and French pop flavor with an energy you might expect to see in a 90's Betty Boop Halloween cartoon. 

Marlon Aldana on drums, Paul Sounder on double bass and Craig Miller on balafon with guests from Honey of the Heart - Maren Metke on xylophone and vocals and Justin Ancheta on guitar and vocals.


Catch a live show this weekend at the Embrace the Light Chanukah Dance Celebration at the East Bay JCC - - FB EVENT

Stay tuned for a new single that will be released on New Years with a celebration at a Yosemite area lodge!
Thank you Honey of the Heart for adding your harmonies!

Clan Dyken just released a new CD themed on the fires raging in our world and in our home. Their social and environmental justice themed musical mission continues in a tradition of raising funds annually for the Navajo in Arizona who's homes continue to be threatened by resource extraction.

I've been at work on a number of projects this winter, after participating in a successful fundraiser for Standing Rock and Tribute to Leonard Cohen, I worked with Honey of the Heart on a cover of my favorite Leonard Cohen Song, Suzanne. What do you think?
