Not a surprise to me, but my stream here is majority female artists. I connect with the divine feminine thru music. I have ever since I was very small.

is really quite prolific. She has some real gems, especially for the earnest crowd.

'Spirit of Eden' is profoundly spiritual, taking the listener into a musical experience of the deep mystery and beauty of nature.

"Everybody needs somebody to live by...rage on omnipotent."
