Innovative song with 3 distinct sections. The 1st has a classical feel, the 2nd has an Irish feel and the 3rd has a driving folk/rock sound with a hint of Cajun. The singer is driving back home after having met someone on the road and is excited, yet fearful, about the possibility of a relationship. Female Vocals, Folk Music, Folk Singer-Songwriter
Acoustic, percussive instrumental with lush vocals and ocarina. Great for a wide range of movie soundtracks, adventure, travel, nature, spa, eco-resorts, landscape scenes. Instrumental, New Age Music, Ethnic Fusion
Unusual, slow groove song about working too hard and wanting to take a giant nap. Quirky and tongue-in-cheek, but not overtly funny. Second half of the song is romantic, too. Female Vocals, Folk Music, Progressive Folk
This slow, beautiful song is sung from the perspective of a child who is dying. Sad, but sweet, as she is ready to go and wants to convince her family that she's going to play with angels. Female Vocals, Folk Music, Folk Singer-Songwriter
