ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Songs of Singer/Songwriter, Michelle Mays, weave a beautiful mystical spell around your heart and spirit. Her sultry voice, insightful lyrics and dynamic music enchants and encourages the listener with comfort, reassurance, joy and love.

The Golden Section Cd is a collection of her most requested songs when she performs live. The songs are a celebration of life, and inspire the spirit.

Within each song are layers of meanings. This can be clearly heard, seen and felt in the song, "The Song of the Spirit". Written with the Golden Section/Golden Mean in mind, with Plato's Music of the Spheres within the chord structure (the actual chord notes) and melody, the philosophy and wisdom of the wise ones and great teachers past, are interwoven into the music of the song. This is indeed a very magical song.

Gently Johnny, is another favorite of Michelle's Fans.. this song was written in the 12th century, it's 800 years old and still going strong. Although, the way Michelle performs Gently Johnny, with a Smokey blues style, it seems like a brand new song. Gently Johnny was awarded 'Track of the Day' on December 23, 2003 by www.garageband.com

Selu, is a story song about the Cherokee Earth/Corn Goddess, it is included on this CD, but is also sold as a single. (The Single comes with the abbreviated story of Selu, as told to Michelle by her Great Aunt, and it comes with commentary by Michelle.) The song is sung in Cherokee and in English. Also, Tommy Wildcat accompanies the song with his Native American Flute. Tommy is full-blood who has gained international fame for his traditional flute music. Native American Music Award, flutist of the year, 2002. http://www.cherokeeproud.com/tommy.htm


The Promise, her first Cd, released in 2000, The Golden section CD was released in 2003.

Her 3rd CD, Fireleap, by Michelle Mays, is the first of a series celebrating the Wheel of the Year. Fireleap is a collection of traditional and original works, both in song and in chants for the celebration of Beltane. Its also here at CD baby!

Michelle was raised in a musical family, and began performing and writing songs when she was a child. She performs her Original music throughout the Midwest USA, at Pagan and Earth Spirit Gatherings and events. Michelle is in the process of writing a series of Albums to celebrate the wheel of the year in collaboration with Earth Spirit Music. http://www.earthspiritmusic.com

Absolutely Breathtaking
Every track on this CD is an absolute gem. Michelle's voice ranges from sweetly pure and angelic to the downright hot. The CD opens with "The Song of Spirit", which is a joyus celebration of magick and life itself - themes carried throughout the CD. Songs like "Persephone" are not easily forgotten. The joy of Michelle's voice can't help but bring joy to the listener as well. The final song on the CD, "The Welcoming", is a fantastic wish for new life that moves me a great deal.

Of course, no review of this CD would be complete without mentioning "Gently Johnny". Although New Age music has a reputation for mellow tones and contemptaive thought, Michelle proves that New Age women are more than strong and wise - they're hot too! This track will simply melt any listener. This is a song that could lead to a crossover singing career with ease. I am at a loss to explain how moving this song is and how fast it can heat up a room.
