about

This recording is a product of the RPM Challenge that takes place globally every February. The task is to write, record,and produce an album in 28 days. Wow! What a task!
Fae and Doug not only completed this album but also made solo albums too! It was a very busy month to say the least!
With little to no rehearsal and often captured in one take,
the process is raw and exciting.

Track Name: Moon Jubilee
Moon Jubilee - music and words by Fae Wiedenhoeft

the light it holds tight at the end of the night
the shadows they dance with the flame
the streets full of haze as we trip the soul maze
shedding worries and even our names.

the stars so alive as the moon pulls the tides
it's cold, but the water is free
our legs twist and twirl at the edge of the world
in the dance of the moon jubilee

Ahh ahhhhhh Ahhhhhh Ahhhhh

the laughter of trees through the forest's cool breeze
the place where old wisdom sings
the oak and the green and the dawn's broken dream
shyly curtsey to a nightingale’s wing

the drums do begin as the clouds filter in
the stars planting dreams in the sea
the white swirling waves wake old Neptune's brigades
in the dance of the moon jubilee

we could find such pleasure here
with the map in the lines of our palms
to the songs of the seas and the trees
our very breath joins hands with the fog

the rocks and the shore and the soul's open door
make way for this new virgin start
the waltz of the sky and the wonders on high
make the world forget hatred and doubt

with a sigh and a wink that old moon starts to sink
we fly with the night's mystery
we watch dreams unfurl at the edge of the world
in the dance of the moon jubilee
in the dance of the moon jubilee
in the dance of the moon jubilee
Track Name: Free
Free - music & lyrics by Fae Wiedenhoeft 22 Feb 09

sun light falls, the cedars stand tall
sea birds glide the sky
tide drifts home, footprints skip foam
the breath of day is mine

time stand stills, the heron's sharp trill
they laugh along their way
sing for me, a memory
that silver lining day

let’s fly
between the earth and sky
past rooftop leaves and trees
let’s fly
so high
so free

sea glass spell, the shore, an empty shell
a heart carved in a tree
spring time dream, lost on a sparrow's wing
true love's a mystery

skipping stones, cast thoughts to bones
those flags are burned and frayed
tomorrow rings as twilight sings
i'll harbour here to stay

and fly
between the earth and sky
past rooftop leaves and trees
and fly, so high….
So free

Track Name: Stone Roses
Stone Roses - Fae Wiedenhoeft – Feb 2009

Stone roses don’t bloom at all
The love you gave me
Bread crumbs to a seagull
How I tried to love you
My heart was so true
But stone roses never ever bloom

Perfect garden dipped in colours light
Birds are singing, streams are bubbling bright
How you were a hunter
A shot rang through the night
The arrow hit stone roses
No blood, no thorns, no fight

Stone roses don’t bloom at all
The love you gave me
Bread crumbs to a seagull
How I tried to love you
My heart was so true
But stone roses never ever bloom
Track Name: Cox Bay Blues
Cox Bay Blues ~ Fae Wiedenhoeft

green cedar, lush november
halebop was riding high tonight
mossy dreams and seashell gleams
and firelight and driftwood smoke

there was laughter and funny faces
was it the moon seducing my soul
or did you have all the control
for i was your puppet
and you stroked my strings

djembe drums and crackle light
i threw my hands into the night
the forest limbs with fingers stretched
smiled down upon me
and said, woman you are free

green cedar, lush november
halebop was riding high tonight
mossy dreams and seashell gleams
and firelight and driftwood smoke

Sea Star – Fae Wiedenhoeft 22 Feb 09


a little star floats o'er the sea
and sets the weary boatman free
his dreams carry him to his love

the gloamin time of day and nigh
when spirits dance and faeries sigh
a magic song from above


this fleeting love, this leanshe
when she and he dance on the sea
the winged hour is here

seven months long it’s been
since he left his home in Aberdeen
her death he could not bare

Chorus:
free as the white waves ever roll
free as the star light's glowing soul
we'll dance though i am very far
we'll be as sea and star

solo

how sweet it is at gloamin grey
when star and sea so softly play
a bond that sails through time

and each night he'll dance with she
on silken veils of eternity
beyond breath this love will bind


Chorus:
free as the white waves ever roll
free as the star light's glowing soul
we'll dance though i am very far
we'll be as sea and star
