about

The recordings for my first cohesive "album," span several years and several cycles of self-doubt and self-improvement. They reflect changes in my surroundings (Århus, Brussels, Los Angeles and the place that ties it all together; Fanø, off the Danish west coast) and my life over a long period; changing homes, marriage, coming to terms with long-term illness and coming to terms with a new-found happiness. They also represent sections of a learning curve that I hope is not broken off at the close of this album. Thank you for listening and feel free to keep in touch!

about

Moongazing Hare Copenhagen, Denmark

I try to keep myself warm, calm, loved and out of harm's way. The music is desperately home made and mostly well-intentioned.

Track Name: The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry
An earthly nurse sits and sings
And aye she sings by lily ween
Saying, "Little ken I my bairn's father
Far less the land that he dwells in."

But he came one night to her bedside
And an Angry guest I am sure was he
Saying, "Give to me my little young son
And you will take your nurse's fee."

"I am a man upon the land
I am a silkie in the sea
And when I am far away from land
My home it is in Sule Skerry."

"And it will be on a summer's day
When the sun shines bright on every stane
I'll come and I'll fetch my little young son
And I'll teach him how to swim the main."

"And you will marry a gunner good
And a right fine gunner I am sure he'll be
And the very first shot that ever he shoots
Will kill both my young son and me."
Track Name: Dust On Your Breath
You built your house where the rain wouldn't fall
At the foot of the valley, some time before the sprawl

(you saw it coming, did you not?
darkness and traffic and dust on your breath)

You built your house between desert walls
And watched as the traffic slowed to a crawl

(you saw it coming, did you not?)

Traffic has got to stop
Track Name: Bone Charms
Seven young men, seven went off to war
She's collecting magpie bones on the shore
Magpie angels, bound up with feathers and straw
Seven angels came and went as before

Seven young men, all left and went off to war
Still collecting magpie bones on the shore
Magpie angels, bound up with garlic and straw
Seven angels, seven went off to war
Track Name: Secretly a Bear
Sleep comes on a broken horse
Through broken doors, there's nothing more
That you or I can do or say

These mornings into afternoons
The afternoon comes much too soon
And nothing seems to move my way

I know I should try to wake up
Coffee cups are piling up
But coffee only makes me shake

I had things to do I know
I know I should, but I can't go
As long as baby feels this way
Track Name: My Bonnie Lad
So, the girl asks:
"Have you seen owt of my bonnie lad?
And are you sure he's well-o?
He's been away long, with a stick in his hand
He's gone to ride the keel-o."

And the cruel North Wind answers:
"Yes, I've seen your bonnie lad!
It was on the tall ship that I spied him.
His grave is green, but not with grass,
And you'll never lie beside him."
