Silent Night (not the Christmas Carol) is a song about expanding…inwardly and outwardly. Opening. Letting go. Transforming and merging. A kind of beckoning from a deeper perspective. Though it is on my new album, it is one of the oldest tracks–one so personal it took me nearly a decade to release. The song is meant to be a kind of journey from one state of being into another, and a reminder of who we are.
