Meet the Band
Dionne is a Drumming Priestess whose voice carries the nearly forgotten memories connected with her Native American lineage (Yurok, Karuk, Hoopa and Apache). She uses her skills to channel a fierce and beautiful spiritual power that leaves listeners spellbound. Music has always been the most powerful instrument for healing in her life and she is grateful to be sharing this gift with others
through the conduit that is Spiral Muse.
She has been writing and recording amazing music for decades and remains committed to personal and collective healing through music.
Alison has been singing and visioning musical performances since she was a small child. She is a prophetic songwriter who draws inspiration from her embodied healing journey as a woman and her commitment to personal and collective transformation and justice. Her visionary dreams for the group constantly call Spiral Muse forward
into the next phase. She is the group's webmaster, archivist and recently has taken on
recording engineer duties.
She is also a licensed therapist in private practice.
Lana is a mother, violinist, activist-fundraiser and published author. Her most recent book, "Unwrapping Christmas," is a memoir that takes us through her experiences of pain and resilience in connection to the holidays. Her first book, “Birthing God: Women’s Experiences of the Divine” explores women’s stories of spirituality and faith. She has been collaborating with Spiral Muse since 2013. Lana brings a patience and heart centered wisdom to the group.
Her soulful violin "voice" is featured on our
Christmas collection “Sing of Peace” and our
most recent album "Somebody Calling."

Long distance band member Kathleen is a priestess of Brigid committed to the resurrection of the Divine Feminine, especially within her own Catholic Christian tradition. She holds Master’s degrees in theology and ministry and has over 10 years’ ministry experience, including directing retreats, teaching classes on religion and spirituality, and leading small group spiritual communities. She writes music, plays guitar, sings, and has worked her magic arranging those
divine Spiral Muse vocals.
