Performing Songwriter Magazine named Mare Lennon's debut CD'Chasing Sacred' a Top Twelve DIY pick: 'Chasing Sacred rules me/to find a place where I can rest/somehow it eludes me/the so-called p0lace that's heaven blessed.' Those opening lines from the title track of Mare Lennon's debut disc sums up her muse pretty succintly. Kicking off with 'Speak to the Wind' she laments the mysteries and mundantities of the 'cosmic joke' life can be, but refuses to let her spirit be broken. 'Coyote' is actually a woman, a seductress who 'leaves a trail of blood and wine' In Falcon's Rage she means to shake herself and anyone else from complacency. All is not like, heavy, dude. Lennon knows how to lighten things up and she does so with the lovely 'Sleeping on the Moon' and 'French Kiss'. She also knows how to write a knock-out love song like 'Never Get Used to Me' and how to surround herslef with some VERY talented players form the L.A. music scene. They give her a sound that is warm and lush. It's big, but not 'too big'. As is always the case, the best music comes from 'the search,' not in the 'finding' -Neil Fagan Co-produced by Hugo Fernandes, players include: Hugo Fernades- acoustic guitar & 12 string Maia Sharp - (Art Garfunkel) soprano sax Ken Lasaine - ( Matthew Lee Band) electric guitar Matthew Lee - piano Candy Lerman - violin/viola Phil Maturano - (Maynard Gerguson/Adam Goldberg Band) drums Jaysen Hawks - drums & percussion Robin Pearl - vocals Natalie Archangel - (Howard Shore) vocals.
