Every voice matters - out of many colors, one voice... When inspiration brought this to me during an impromptu looper recording, the phonetics 'Suus a vaala, suus ala' just came out of me. I then attempted to find out what that phrase meant so I might write the lyrics around the spontaneous maunder. Although I am usually able to 'interpret' these utterances, I could not accurately decipher this one. From what Google translate tells me, it could be Estonian for 'a single mouth' or Finnish, or Latin… I went with the Estonian to finish the lyrics but I am hoping a true linguist will translate it accurately for me one day…here's A Single Word, from my new CD, IDIO


A Single Word (Suus a vala)

Suus a vala, suus ala

One single voice
gives you a choice
Silence is truth forsaken
Find hope where risks are taken

Suus a vala, suus ala

One single word
must be spoken to be heard
Shout above the hushed concessions
Find peace beyond obsessions

Seeing out of you
a single point of view
If you choose to share your eyes
the vision will materialize…

Suus a vala, suus ala

Using my voice and guitar with loopers, harmonizers and effects, I weave sonic sculptures from organic layers, ‘live looping’. Nothing is pre-recorded. In addition to my duties in the band Citadel, I draw from rock, prog, metal and world influences to play Citadel songs solo-style, along with my new material. I experiment with tech to evoke the sound of the multiple performers I hear in my mind. ... more
