Our original artist/s did not write today’s song but were the original artists to release it and have a hit with it. This band was part of a group of California bands in the 80’s that created a genre of music defined by rich vocal harmonies, psychedelia and guitar interplay. The bands that defined this group recently reunited for a compilation album.

The song’s words could take you back to the time of very large stone temples in the desert.

Today’s cover artist is an up and coming singer/songwriter with a powerful voice. Her name brings to mind a grassy colored mineral and an animal in the air.
