Album Notes
Thunder in my Arms is Lissa’s first release of all original music, and is a song cycle about attachment, parenting and trauma. After a decades-long career performing as a traditional fiddler and ballad singer, Schneckenburger’s personal experience as a foster and adoptive parent sparked her drive to write songs around the themes of families and resiliency. Sung from a myriad of viewpoints, Thunder in my Arms can be at times brazen and innocent, resilient and triumphant, softly confessional and sweetly comforting.

Lissa says, “At a certain point I noticed that everyone we turned to for help with parenting was talking about the same thing: finding compassion, synchronicity, and understanding. In my attempts to be a better parent I found plenty of invaluable books and workshops that got that point across, but no songs! Music has this magical way of communicating emotion almost instantly, and allows human beings to synchronize with each other on so many levels. I set out to write songs that would resonate with other parents like myself. Songs about loneliness, exhaustion, beauty, abandonment, love, loss, and above all, hope.”
