Live the life your soul wants


Join me on a healing journey of the heart through songs, lyrics and live music videos, that embrace relationships, life lessons, life purpose and spirituality.

I started singing, writing lyrics, and playing guitar in 2000 at the age of 42. I mainly play fingerstyle weaved with some rhythm.

I choose to write in isolation of the influence of other musicians, so to remain true to myself. However, I am sure the music I listened to growing up has influenced me in some way. What I have taken from that experience has created my own voice and style.

I came here knowing who I am
Then I was sentenced to sleep
And told to follow the sheep
As I left the sheep to graze alone
I discovered a different tone
A space where I could roam
A place I’ve always known

May you find something here that touches your heart.

I recorded a collection of songs that weave folk with nuances of country, pop, bluegrass, and a touch of jazz.

All recordings were co-produced by Devaki and Patanjali Sokaris, and mixed and mastered by Patanjali Sokaris.

Disc 1, I sang all lead vocals. I sang all backing vocals, except for those by Anne Christine Wold on I believe in love and Love is all there is. All guitars, drums and percussion by Nissim Solomon. Piano and keyboard arrangements by Benjamin de Murashkin.

The songs I recorded with my husband as DevaKnighT are:

1Wrong road out
2Still waters
3Just because you’re you
4I’ve been here before

Disc 2, I sang all lead vocals and played rhythm,lead and finger-style guitar on all tracks. Patanjali Sokaris played lead guitar, mandolin and bass guitar.

In my heart my home:

I've lived in lots of other places and lots of other spaces. I've been lost, and I've been found, but wherever I go I'm reminded of where you are, in my heart in my home.

I’ve been consumed with my fear and lost what I thought was dear, only to discover nothing was lost. For wherever I go I find new things to be found, in my heart my home.

I know now this was always home, while I was looking for somewhere else.And now it’s clear that I was wasting my time, looking for a greener grass on the other side.
