ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LISA DANCING-LIGHT

As the daughter of a Scotch-Irish lass and a Holland-Dutch boy, living in the Rocky Mountains masquerading as an urban princess turned mountain woman, I have been singing since I can remember as a little girl with a plastic record player and cardboard records.

Growing up in the heart of America listening to the very best of Big Band music, studying piano with Professor Joanne Baker at the Conservatory at University of Missouri in Kansas City, my mother says I begged for a piano. But when the neighborhood kids played kickball in front of my house I dreaded practicing. My parents loved music and Cole Porter or George Gershwin was always playing in our home on Sunday after church. I learned to dance standing on my father's toes in the family room on Sunday night as we listened to Bubbles In The Wine, the "champagne music" of Lawrence Welk. I carry the legacy of a father who always wanted to be an orchestra conductor and a mother who did actually play piano with bands in the infamous Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.

Born under the sign of Leo, passionate about being the center of attention on stage, magical musical moments in my life were producing talent shows in my backyard complete with curtains, stage lights, costuming AND audiences. I survived the terrifying piano concerts and my real love was singing in choirs. My high school choir teacher Carder Manning supported me and inspired me to major in music in college and become a music educator.

Moving to Colorado after getting a degree in Music Education from the University of Kansas, marked a dramatic change in my life. Becoming an avid hiker, camper, nordic skier, and horseback rider required living close to the earth has always been a priority. Getting married, raising two sons in the country brought a simple yet pristine quality I had longed for. Besides rehearsing was always easier and no one complained about the loud music.

Bitten by the performance bug I began playing piano in duos and trios, a 7-piece swing band with 3 three female vocalists and kicked off a solo career with my first cassette entitled FIRST SOLO with all original songs in the style of Carole King and Laura Nyro. My dream of stage performance blossomed to a crescendo opening for jazz pianist Peter Kater at the Aspen Wheeler Opera House and with Grammy-award winning, jazz sax player Ernie Watts.

With the phenomenon of "hearing" music blessed by my Muse, I received more inspiration for POINT OF BALANCE and was musically on fire with the desire to share messages I received. Like Mozart in AMADEUS music flooded my brain. The phenomenon of the effect of music and sound on my audiences fascinated me as folks shared intimate stories after concerts, about the emotional and physical effect my music was having on them. I explored and studied with pioneers in sound therapy taking me deeply into the world of science, psychotherapy and music of native cultures. I presented workshops journeying into the deep personal experience of the voice. Teaching what I needed to learn I began grasping what my music was about. I developed a sweeter connection with my creative genius and thus a deeper appreciation and more spiritual approach to my life.

Life challenges of single parenting, being an only child with aging parents, I reached to the depths of my resources during a health crisis. While sitting in meditation one morning reading a poem by Rudolf Steiner, HYMN TO SOPHIA, words began singing to me. I went to the piano and identified the melody and wrote the song. When I was done I cried for hours. Like the labor of having a baby, I was completely exhausted. Coincidentally my next piano student went to Waldorf School which connected me to Steiner, the father of Waldorf Education and founder of anthroposophy, man's study of the wisdom of Sophia. I explained the whole experience and we all got chills. Learning about the myth of Sophia, known as the Goddess of Wisdom, the world soul, I read the best-selling novel DaVinci Code, Sophia Teachings and every book about Sophia I could get my hands on. Still a great mystery to me, her wisdom sings through every song on my SOPHIA SONGS CD. She opens up the mysteries of the seasons, the relationship between Earth and the stars and between humanity and the world. Her divine feminine presence is emerging on the planet and this divine wisdom is becoming love. This transformational alchemy occurs each time this music is played and sent out into the cosmos. Sounds goes on forever until it bounces up against something. The message to my listeners is, "Play these songs of wisdom. Let them be lullabies for your spirit and prayers for your soul. Sing them out to the Universe and spread the message of love, create the positive energy force of peace."
