ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hewn of Earth is a tribute to the spirit of life within all beings. Marianne share’s the voice of her inner revelations with the sun, the river, the ocean, a pigeon, a dog, all as witnesses. Her songs reflect her study and experience doing environmental work, and represent her quest for peace and environmental justice, a peace and justice she reveals in the continued awakening of her own awareness.

Marianne playfully reveals the wisdom inherent even in the most ordinary encounters in her beloved and celebrated pigeon song. She revels in the joy and thrill of solutions in songs like Fields of Hemp, while crying out for participation and responsibility in Little Atom Bombs. Marianne observes the tragic parallel between the degradation of the earth facing many cultures alongside the presence of domestic violence in woeful songs like Cinderella. Thunder Lover is a passionate communion with God, welcomed in an oncoming rain storm…

Hewn of Earth includes touches of a variety of musical styles and influences including folk, blues, and rock among others. This, Marianne’s first cd recorded in 2003, largely features Marianne’s voice and guitar as if you were sharing the songs with her in her home. Additional artists compliment several of the songs including Susannah Blachly on fiddle, Jeff Staudinger on guitar, Mark Lavoie on harmonica, Matthew Donahue on keyboard and Michael Straub on bass guitar. Run River Run, Marianne’s long time signature song, is the first track.

Marianne welcomed her third child the year she released Hewn of Earth. She continues to write and produce spirited music touched by the natural world. Prior to motherhood, Marianne was a Juvenile Attorney for the State of Vermont. She also served in both VISTA in Vermont, and the Peace Corps in Paraguay working in sustainable agriculture. Marianne has a Masters in Environmental law and currently works as a certified Birthing From Within Childbirth mentor and a Simplicity Parenting coach and group leader. She lives in Plainfield Vermont with her husband Andrew and their three children.
