Heather's atomically inspiring eclectic folk is a tribute to the listener's vital enthusiasm for being! Cello, marimba, bells and trumpet, or solo switching between banjo, steel mandolin and guitar. Her current album is a collection of songs exploring personal connections with the water. Water is a voice of our emotions, our connection to the source of our being. This music aims to explore this. ... more

Track Name: Dakota
The motor purrs
Spins the wheels
In her mind she teases the road as it hits her heals
The closest star
Rising from its grave
Nothing for miles
But the light it gave

She keeps her fairy tales ‘neath the brim of her hat
an’ keeps a patch in her boot if she gets a flat
They hear the highway scream, but her picture they miss
Because Dakota
Does not exist

Of coarse you might get love bugs in your teeth
When the motor revs your strattle warms the seat
Your thoughts they race trasmittion greets your speed
The highway now anticipates your needs

They’ve got their horses, And they got their guns
Black hills meet the ghost they hang over the sun
What brings you pleasure, What brings you pain
Native drums beat the sound that call you home again

Rise in the morning, june bugs are swarming
Restless and wandering, quicken the pace
Evening is falling, the motor is stalling
Breathtaking image of glorious space
Who speaks for you, who knows your name
“Well Dakota speaks for me, and you know it’s all the same
When you feel the reins around your neck
Shoot straight for the road and evade any wreck
The last and the first question, That leaves my mind
Is what r you looking for? Is it something you think you’ll find?
With no reservation you - Collect your thrills
What speaks for you - Is something that brings me chills
