Bio

Vox Lumina- (guitar, vocals, songwriter, composer)
For many moons Vox Lumina (Big Blue Sun, House of Woo), has been moving crowds with her fully emotional blend of rhythmic, rootsy guitar and sophisticated, soulful vocals, sharing the stage with the likes of Donna the Buffalo, Blue Rodeo, and Ember Swift. Along with her elegant and inspiring lyrics, Vox Lumina’s “organically grown soul music” moves through a variety of musical landscapes- blues, jazz, folk, rock, world- “a veritable celebration of sound that highlights depth and creativity and is accentuated by extremely mindful lyrics.”(First Degree) We might hear the influence of Ricki Lee Jones, Van Morrison, or Bjork as well as yoga inspired trance-chanting from her self-released album Music is Medicine (2006) and her gigs as a kirtan wallah. Her Musical Medicine Shows are punctuated with the sounds of a 16-inch diameter quartz crystal bowl, a powerful and unusual instrument generating resonant overtones and harmonics that provide a perfect backdrop- mysterious, etheric, captivating, ritualistic- to her incantations and rhythmic voicings. Each performance produces a “vibrationally enhanced alchemical elixir” that is offered to the local body of water with a song of gratitude.
An environmental educator and yoga teacher as well as an artist and musician, she creates experiences that provide a sense of connection to self, other, and place- an appreciation, an understanding, a wonder- and wholeheartedly believes that has the power to change our world for the better.
