Mark Ferritto Talent matched only by the honest and raw nature of her lyrics. Favorite track: Skin And Tendon.

Stevie I think Void is my favorite just because it was the first song I heard and instantly knew I wanted more. The feel of the whole EP is so intimate and warm to me. And the singers' voice is so reassuring, soulful and comforting. Favorite track: Void.

Void 05:47
i built up a wall so high, it could withstand the march of seven times and the final shout i had this notion, and from my tower you were no exception mixed in blood and whole in purpose, void of will and proposition what a thrill it is to discover how you broke the pattern, setting to fire all the timber in my castle
I Don't Know 03:50
what i really meant to say is that your beauty blows my mind and i'm kept up late at night thinking about you what you really need to know is that i'm such a stupid mess, caught between terror and arrest oh, i don't know what i'd really love to say is that i think we'd fit like glove in hand, but you'd have to understand it's just a matter of opinion what a funny thing to sing, because in all reality only a fool would fall for me oh, i don't know maybe on a blue moon maybe in my wildest dreams yes! that's it! maybe while i'm asleep but i must reiterate that i cannot fall asleep and i'm stuck with counting sheep, thinking about you
in such a time, in such a place, in a familiar hour words in air, air and smoke, over land and line look at this passerby, there and unsuspected who are you? where will i be on this newfound day? sweet communion bread to break in order skin and tendon joining, moving in and out, with me and us and you
Bone 04:23
be still my heart hold on my love, because i'm not as fast as the rest of them you are my flesh and blood and bone and pulse and breath and sex and love


my whole body is a heart
