As a songwriter, her lyrics are at once prosaic and deeply poetic in their simple truth. Her lyrical subtext is reflective of diverse story - masters like Marvin Gaye, Phoebe Snow or Sun Ra. Her songs are a shrine for Ancestral remains, sculpted around gently simmering jazz and blues ideals; instruments and voicings arranged to evoke a visceral response to a song, whether it be an original song or her expression of a classic Jazz standard. And she stays firmly rooted in NOW...
This is a Prayer.
For the World.
I wish everyone Health.
It is Wealth.
May Love Prevail N.O.W.
"One of the highlights on this musical journey has been re-working/recording a song I wrote with Zamzam Ausar previously. It was with Build An Ark; an orchestral ensemble in Los Angeles I have had the honor of performing with for some time. The arrangement, by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson is wispy, ethereal. Many of the players on this song - indeed the whole Love Part 1 project - are some of the best musicians in the world. I have been able to travel the would singing this song."
