~ Like her life, her music tells a fascinating tale of a woman with a talent, a vision and a destiny that won't quite let go of her. ~

Inspired by simple pleasures, Bunny has ventured a life lived close to the land, by savoring many hours sitting serenely upon stones beneath singing cottonwood trees at sunset, listening for the sound of twinkling stars, dancing solitary bare feet upon moist soil under the misty moon, watching as the purple, pink then white "haired" sunrise clouds emerge as mountain breezes and gurgling spring waters whisper the songs of earth.
Her love of nature, countryside, laughter and happy humble relationship with diverse life forms from buffalo to bunny, wolf to centipede, grandmothers to grandfathers, is reflected in over 400 songs that have awoken her from sleep, and because of the special ways they have arrived - vividly with flute harmonies and acoustic guitar and heartbeat drum playing as accompaniment - she has felt soulful commitment to learn them, and send her own gentle voice in attempt to recreate the music she hears, to "translate" the songs of earth to city dwelling humans who may have forgotten, been too fearful of the natural ways, or too busy with the man-made worlds of "civilization" to hear these songs from land and life firsthand.
She has found her voice, now sent for good relationship, to rekindle an ancient understanding and life-way depicted by the circle, number 8, the vortex, and in deep respect for seasons and cycles that show the wisdom, beauty and humble elegance resident within the heart of life’s most intimate feelings reflected in it’s grand designs of harmony, balance, abundance and peace. The spirit of all her songs and the cover songs she chooses to sing find their foundation in reflecting the Lakota theme/prayer - Mitakuye Oyasin - which roughly translated with love and good intent for all creation, means "we are all related."
