A testament to the power and beauty of the mystery and majesty of life.

For an insightful trip through gorgeous harmonies, inspired lyrics and clear melodic inventions just sit back and turn up the volume. Originally recorded in San Francisco in 1989 and re-released with a bonus track in 2002, the songs use melody and electronic percussion and keyboards to get the message across. Sometimes driven by quests of love (Bright Sea Bright), and sometimes pushed by the emptiness of life's despair (Travelin') underneath it all is a deep sense of optimism and trust in a higher power.

On "Raven Sister” (Mi Amiga) Thea blends sweet harmonies featuring Pamala Ballingham (Earth Mother Lullabies) with acoustic guitars, synth strings and lyrical Spanish. The result is engaging and tracks like "I've Seen a Light" lay Thea's airy vocals across heavenly music until electric guitars crash into the mix bringing it back down to earth.
