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.
Alison has been singing and visioning musical performances since she was a small child. She is a prophetic songwriter who draws song-writing inspiration from her embodied healing journey as a woman and her commitment to healing and justice. Her visionary dreams for the group constantly call Spiral Muse forward into the next phase. She is the group's Webmaster, Queen of Organization and Archivist. She is also a psychotherapist with a private practice serving all of California.
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."
