The symbolism is rich. The harmonies are sublime. The music is joyful, sweet, fierce, angry, deep, flowing, hopeful – but always powerful.
The possibilities are endless!
Spiral Muse is a San Francisco-based band dedicated to the Divine Feminine. The spiral is an ancient symbol of the Goddess, found in archeological remains of forgotten cultures throughout the ages. The Divine Feminine is our muse, the inspiration from which we create.
Our music is inspired by every aspect of our embodied experiences as women. We write and sing about justice and empowerment, about the healing process and about the sacred. We acknowledge, honor and give thanks to the indigenous people of the land we live on and are privileged to make music upon.

What is "Goddess?"
What is the Divine Feminine, you ask? Well, it’s God – imagined as She. Unusual in the Western world… rarely spoken of… sometimes associated negatively with paganism, nature worship, or witchcraft, all of which are unique expressions of Her Voice.
She is that which we all are. She is the Divine One, Source of all that is, the Great Mother who birthed the world and continues to nurture and care for Her creation.
She is another word for Spirit, for God, for the timeless and eternal dimension of our being, for the sacred within and all around us. She is the voice within, sometimes faint, and sometimes powerful, that encourages you, guides you, urges you forward into your greater potential and loves you unconditionally no matter what.
Our culture has forgotten Her and even pushed her out of our imagination. This is no accident; it’s part of patriarchy and sexism. If we forget Goddess, we forget that women, as well as men, are made in the image of the Divine. As the saying goes, “if God is male, then male is God” – and we assume that women must be something less.
Spiral Muse sings the praises of Goddess in the hopes that the world will re-awaken to the goodness of the Mother, and once again honor all women as sacred beings in Her image. We are blessed to have met one another at the right time, to be making music together, and to have released three albums, two original collections, "She is Here," (2014) and our newest release "Somebody Calling," (2019) as well as an album of Goddess Christmas music in collaboration with Rev. Jann Aldredge-Clanton, "Sing of Peace" (2015.)
At the end of the day, we are four women who really, really like making music together… and we believe that when women’s voices rise up, the Voice of the Goddess speaks.
