Wild Earth Child (2011) from DaPuppy.com
I've seen Jenna perform some of these songs live, and both her voice and her demeanor are real. (She doesn't need studio enhancements, and she means every positive, uplifting word). She seems to revel in SHARING her music - hers is not the fake, staged act of a bored professional or a talented fraud tying to pretend they're happy performing...she IS happy performing, whether it's to adults listening attentively or little girls dancing about near her. When she says "Thank You" after each song, it comes out as a welcome ray of truth, as if she almost can't believe that people are clapping for HER, and she doesn't quite know how to express her profound gratitude that her beautiful music and spirit inspire others as much as they obviously do herself.
Husband Doug plays the steady but subtle Mick Fleetwood to Jenna's often-mystical Stevie Nicks, circa "Gold Dust Woman", especially on "Samhain Night".
My favorite songs are the first two, "Affirmation" and "Green Man (Wild Earth Child)", but I don't listen to them on repeat or in a mix, I listen to the whole album, because it is truly a REAL experience of carefully crafted, yet spare and simple, Love and Wonder.
This is not "Pagan" music any more than "It's Love" by King's X is "Christian" music. They're both UNIVERSAL music, celebrating the latent spirituality and wonder in ALL of us, no matter how, where, or under what name we choose to express it.
Sowing the seeds of Love, and nurturing them with Faith and Joy. Amen, and Blessed Be.
