about

"Lis Addison is a composer, producer and songwriter with a style that blends contemporary, world music and electronic to craft songs that reach into the psyche. Beginning her musical journey as a child, she traveled the world and learned flavors of Celtic, Ragas, Western and Indian culture and all of these have blended into her music. Moving to LA pushed her music into a new direction as it became her sanctuary.
Music and spirituality have long walked hand in hand. When you bring in the love of nature, ecology and knowledge of the beauty of Matriarchal societies, the power of music takes on a different level. Such is the case with Addison’s new album, Crown in the Sky. Every song was written by Lis Addison and her devotions permeate every note of music, ambient sound and vocalization.
The album opens up with a sound reflective of dawn breaking over the horizon. “Voice of the Tree” is a breathy vocal experience that takes you into the soul of a tree. The Mother whispers the truths of the universe into our ears if we only care to listen. Close your eyes and let the percussion infuse your spirit. Feel the power of the earth seep into the bottoms of your feet as you reach for the sky. Center your being with Mother Gaia and let her share her secrets. Let the stirring vocals lift your heart and let the artful composition swirl around you.
“New World” has a pulse that is infectious in its message and vocals. A mixture of world music, electronic and a stirring percussion, this piece is a breath of fresh air on the hopes for the future. It is a new world of ecological sustainable living and green energy from the ashes of today’s mistakes.
“Crown in the Sky” begins with an acoustic guitar riff and moves into a multi-instrumentation that chronicles the journey of a tree’s growth. Fresh air, water, roots growing deep in the earth and the tops of its leaves touching the sky, the little tree grows into itself. Addison’s lyrics project the love she feels for nature in every breath. From the tiniest acorn to the largest forest, this eco warrior is not afraid to express her devotion to the cause of environmental activism.
Lis Addison is an award winning vocalist and her music has garnered an international following for both music and dance. Her work as eco feminist is reflected in her lyrics and the rousing pulse in every song. Crown in the Sky is a journey into the feminine side of nature. From the hope of “New World” to the Goddess herself in “Mother Gaia” each song is a balm for the weary soul and a breath of fresh air. If you are looking for an uplifting spiritual experience that reflects love of earth and the power and majesty of The Goddess, then you need to experience this talented artist for yourself."

Track Name: Voice Of The Tree
She appears from within the clouds
Floating gracefully as she comes down
She has the whispering voice of the tree
And she sings to set you free
She sings to set you free

She feels like the wind in the leaves
Her hand brushes the gently flowing
Mysteries
We feel her all around us
As she whispers in our ear
I want you hear, I want you to hear

She'll take you by the hand and
Wrap you in her arms
(Hey ah...)
She has the whispering voice of the tree
And she sings to set you free

Over on the mountain
I heard a soulful song
(Spread your wings
Across the universe)
From a Thunderbird who said
"It's time to transform"
(Spread your wings
Across the universe)
(Hey ah...)
She has the whispering voice of the tree
And she sings to set you free
She sings to set you free
Mmm...she sings to set you free...
Track Name: New World
When the world began
There were no oceans to cross
Between each other
Over the sands of time
We walk alone

Let the new world reign
Let the new world reign
You have all the tools
That you need to use
(you have all the tools
you have all the tools
you have all the tools you need)
To know you within you

When you were a child
You knew everything from
The Other Side
Over the sands of time
You find your way

Let the new world reign
Let the new world reign...
(you have all the tools you need...)
Track Name: Look Into Your Eyes
What makes the distance close
Between us
What makes the distance far?
What makes the difference grow
Between us
And isolate who we are?
Isolate who we, isolate who we are

What makes me feel that I
Already know who it is
That you are?
Was there a time we met
Long ago on a faraway star?
On a faraway star?

If I look into your eyes
Will you no longer be
A stranger to me?

I will look into your eyes
And then you'll see
How I am you and you are me
I will look into your eyes
What will you do
Will you turn away?
Or look right through me to you?
What will you do?

I will look into your eyes
You will no longer be
A stranger to me
I will look into your eyes . . .
Track Name: Bring Her Light
We take riches from her body
We take nectar from her soul
With the fire from her lightening
We electrify the whole thing
With the medicine from plants
We can cure a heart attack
But when her water starts to boil
And the earth beneath us cracks

Where do we run for shelter?
Can we quell our lust?
Or will she turn us into ashes
And our ashes into dust?

We Bring Her Light
We bring her diamonds
In the night
We Bring Her Light
We bring her diamonds
In the night

She has given us her fiber
She has given us her breath
With the knowledge of her being
We attempt to conquer death
Though her needy little children
Have demanded such a price
Let us vanquish all the greed
That turns her fire into ice

What can we offer
Can we quell our lust?
Or will she turn us into ashes
And our ashes into dust?

We Bring Her Light
We bring her diamonds
In the night
We Bring Her Light
We bring her diamonds
In the night
Track Name: Hearts & Bones
Spirit speak to us
From the sacred stone
Let us hear your ancient voice
Make your presence known
Guide Us
Guide Us

Water speak to us
From the sacred zone
Let us hear your ancient voice
Make your presence known
Guide Us
Guide Us

People speak to us
From your hearts & bones
Let us hear your ancient voice
Make your presence known
People speak to us
From your hearts & bones
Let us hear your sacred voice
Make your presence known
Guide Us
Guide Us
Track Name: Turn To Gold
When everything falls into place
Guiding me forward
Colors kaleidoscope
Beneath me (colors kaleidoscope...)
They turn to Gold
There's nothing to hold
And I'm the only one
Standing in my way
I turn to Gold
There's nothing to hold

When everything falls into place
Guiding me forward
Water, fire, earth and air
Support me (water, fire, earth and air...)
They turn to Gold
There's nothing to hold
And I'm the only one
Standing in my way
I turn to Gold
There's nothing to hold
Gold...Gold...Gold
I turn to Gold...
I turn to Gold...
When everything falls away
I turn to Gold
Track Name: Crown In The Sky
Out of the acorn growing high
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky
Rise little tree let your branches fly
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky

We bring you water by day
So you can grow in the Light
And help you on your way
For you are a beautiful sight

Oh little tree will you grow high
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky
Up to the world where eagles fly
With your roots in the earth
Your Crown In The Sky?

Oh little tree you grow so high
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky
Over the earth where eagles fly
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky

So silent is your might
Protect us in the glade
Your wisdom shines a Light
And we are unafraid

Sacred Tree you grow high
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky
Up to the world where spirits fly
With your roots in the earth
And your Crown In The Sky
Crown In The Sky
Crown In The Sky
Crown In The Sky
Track Name: Carry Me
Mother, carry me away (carry me)
In your arms I'm willing to stay
You speak so I can listen
You sing so I can hear
I am happy just to stay awhile
Feeling you are near

Cause everywhere I go
There you are
Goddess of creation
I wish upon a star
Blaze across the firmament
Power that you are
Blaze across the firmament
Power that you are

Mother, spirit me away (spirit me)
In your arms I'm happy to play
And sing upon your waters-
I'm a daughter of your birth
Of the life you carry forth
From spirit down to earth

Cause everywhere I go
There you are
Goddess of creation
I wish upon a star
Blaze across the firmament
Power that you are
Blaze across the firmament
Power that you are
Yes, everywhere I go
There you are
Goddess of creation
I wish upon a star
Blaze across the firmament
Power that you are
Blaze across the firmament
Power that you are

Carry me, carry me, carry me...
Mother won't you carry me...
Power that you are!
Power that you are!
Track Name: How Deep
I taste the sun in your kiss
I feel you in my hand
(what more do I need?)
I breathe you in -
A Dazzling Light!
A moment that's complete
(what more do I need?)
Every day I'm grateful for
The earth beneath my feet
With father sun she grows the fruit
And it always tastes so sweet

How Deep How Deep
Grow our roots
Down into the ground
Where it's safe and sound
How deep grows this feeling
Between you and me!

No treasure chest
No goal attained
No task that I assume
(what more do I need?)
Makes me feel such joy as when
You step into the room
(what more do I need?)



Every day I'm grateful for
The earth beneath my feet
With father sun she grows the fruit
And it always tastes so sweet

How Deep How Deep
Grow our roots
Down into the ground
Where it's safe and sound
How deep grows this feeling
Between you and me!
How Deep

And when I'm gone
Away from you
And from this life-alone
I'll rest at heart
Residing in
The love that
We have known

How Deep, How Deep
Grow our roots
Down into the ground
Where it's safe and sound
How deep grows this feeling
Between you and me!
How deep grows this feeling
How deep, how deep, how deep
Grows this feeling
Between you and me
Track Name: Mother Gaia
Gaia, Mother Gaia
Gaia, Mother Gaia
We hear your voice upon the wind
Your hair is as the river
The gifts that we so gladly share
Are those that you deliver

Gaia, Mother Gaia
Gaia, Mother Gaia
We dance upon
The midnight stars
Shining in your eyes
And sing a song
Of joy to you
While gazing at the skies
Gaia, Mother Gaia,
Gaia, Mother Gaia

And when I'm still
I feel you beneath me
On your body I dance
I am home, I am home,
I am home, I am home!
You've got fire in your heart!
You've got fire in your heart!
