Shining Wheel Pagan Chorus
Shining Wheel Pagan Chorus had been performing publicly for 2 years while they'd simultaneously been in the studio making a CD.
They had no idea what they were getting themselves into when the High Priestess said "Hey , let's get together and co-create a chant CD!"
Our chants are all original works and are easy to sing along with to raise energy during rituals. Besides, they're fun!
Founded in 1994, Shining Wheel is an eclectic American Wiccan coven located in Clearwater, Florida. Our members include midwives, real estate brokers, investment counselors, paramedics, programmers, musicians, and massage therapists, to name a few. Many of us teach Craft related classes in the community, and we provide open public rituals periodically during the year. http://shiningwheel.org
Shining Wheel Pagan Chorus is: Crystal Belden, Lisa Fetter, Chance Gray, Dian Gorsira aka Nahani, Jillian, Jamie Kiefner, Brian Morse, Andrew Newlove, Lori Newlove, Amy Otero, Brian Seachrist, Charles Simmons, Susan Simmons, Vicki, Kathi Wahls, Leah Wall and Scott Wall
Crystal Belden - Shimmer Belden, sister of Crystal - loves to sing in the shower, plays well with others.
Lisa Fetter-I'm out in the world searching for my own Andrew Newlove. I'm the Scary Cat Lady who lives down the street from you.
Jillian - Having a metaphysical influence from childhood only made finding this great group of people a more wonderful event. Living on pagan time suits my Pisces nature very well.
Jamie Kiefner - I spend most of my life picking up after my inner child
Dian Gorsira (a.k.a Nahani) -voted most likely to remove her shirt during recording sessions. Blessed Be!
Chance Gray - Enjoyed Wicca 101 so much I did it twice. Still searching for life's great question but I do know that I am the center of it. Blessed with terrific friends and family and endlessly inspirational concurrent spouses.
Brian Morse - No, its o.k., I'm with the band.
Andrew Newlove - In the beginning all was dark-then BANG!-in a pool of slime the beginning of life. Many years later I evolved into the incredible person I am today, the God of Shining Wheel. I'm cute, I take out the garbage and lift heavy things.
Lori Newlove - I'm the HPS of this mess...the idea was born during my time with Reclaiming Chorus during the 10th Anniversary Spiral Dance in the "other" Bay Area, and was furthered along with the help of Dionysus-take that as you will......I was the cat herder first-so there, thpptthpt!
Amy Otero -" My mom gave me a dollar and dropped me off in the parking lot". Turn ons-people who love animals, turn offs- people who think that having upper body strength somehow makes you superior. Advice: Don't trust anyone who doesn't like at least one Beatles song, never date a person who won't buy you tampons, never believe them when they say 10 cats is enough.
Brian Seachrist - singer, songwriter, audio engineer, pagan minister, and part-time herder of cats (i.e., musical director for SWPC). I
am, let's face it, a HELL of a guy (in spite of what you may hear to the contrary from various law-enforcement officials (LIES! ALL
LIES!!), I humbly take full credit for this being a great CD. Blessed be, Hail Eris, and Long Live Loki!! (don't believe anything anyone in the Chorus tells you. I don't even own a spiked helmet OR jackboots, and I never actually USED the taser on a Chorus member. Well, okay, once, but it was self-defense; he was really REALLY off-key!)
Charles Simmons - Poet, philosopher, priest and ne'er-do-well still searching for the answer to life's important questions, "How the hell did I get mixed up in this?" and "Got Beer?"
Susan Simmons - I am a mermaid, and am fluent in dolphin, whale, and sea otter. I am currently working on my latest project; a three-year-old guppy named Samantha or Sammie. She's a mermaiden too. I am blessed by the Goddess.
Kathi Wahls -Massage Therapist, healer, teacher and business owner. A member of Shining Wheel since 1994, a child of the Goddess since the beginning of time and a shameless instigator of naughtiness at every opportunity.
Leah Wall - Teacher- Chief Executive Communicator for SWPC. I have blisters on my fingers (from dialing the phone)!
Scott "I like it HOT" Wall - I didn't even know I could sing, but everything be ire- MON!
