Album Notes
O’er the Land, O’er the Sea is a song I wrote several years ago while living in a little cabin in the mountains Southern Oregon. After many years of travels and study, I finally rooted down, creating a home for myself and finding my kin. This song was inspired by the feeling of finally coming home after a long journey, and by the beautiful way of life I witnessed in the community surrounding me. For the first time in my life I saw humans living in a harmonious relationship with the earth, growing most of their food, standing up for the forests and watershed, creating holistic education for their children when public schools fell short, and ritual was again integrated as a way of marking the seasons and cycles of life and death.

This recording was captured on the first eve of the Sea To Seed tour in 2017, where a crew of musicians, farmers, filmmakers, and writers set sail on a voyage through the Gulf Islands of the Salish Sea in British Columbia. Our purpose was to collect and share the stories of the farming communities along the coast, explore the importance of localizing food systems, and to engage the role that art and culture play in supporting and celebrating these ways of life.
I remember a feeling of sweet anticipation that night, as we sat anchored in Fulford harbor on Salt Spring Island, gently rocking in the hull of the Celtic Sun. I love that you can hear the sounds of this beautiful boat creaking throughout the recording, taking me back to fond memories of being on the water. Ironically, I had forgotten about this song and how appropriate it was for the theme of this tour, so when I was asked to sing it unexpectedly, I struggled to recall the guitar accompaniment. Thankfully the 3rd time was the charm and we were able to capture a live version of myself and Biko (percussion) playing the song. As the tour unfolded, collaboration came naturally and we soon asked David Brown to join us on both guitar and bass. We’ve added David’s beautiful accompaniment to reflect the spirit of collaboration and camaraderie that permeated our time on the boat and the farms of the Salish Sea.

“I have known a people who love all that grows, and bring the land back to life. And I have seen them sing in the fire, and I have heard their one soul’s song…O’er the land, O’er the sea we began a great journey.”
