FANTASTIC FUNGI: REIMAGINE - Out now, co-produced by Amber Rubarth

This past year I’ve poured so much energy into this creation, in collaboration with the Fantastic Fungi film and inspired by the mycelial kingdom. I had the honor of co-producing the records (as well as having a song featured), and it’s been a true labor of love and learning and inspiration.  Feeling grateful for these organic connections the team and artists have found throughout the process, and can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Volume I songs in order: Beautiful Chorus, Tina Malia, Trevor Hall, Rising Appalachia, Amber Rubarth, Jason Mraz & Raining Jane, Brett Dennen, Darlingside, The Weepies, Merlin Sheldrake & Michael Prime, Vienna Teng, Shawn DeRyder, and Deva Premal & Miten!  Vol. II songs in order: Desert Dwellers featuring Paul Stamets, Yaima, Nessi Gomes and Liquid Bloom, Dirtwire, Porangui with Ashley Klein and Jakare, Beats Antique and Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Sri Kala, Sam Garrett and Mose, East Forest, Donna De Lory and Dave Dale, and Vincent Berry II (end credit song from the film). Proceeds support awareness of the healing benefits of mushrooms.

If you haven’t yet seen the documentary (#1 doc on Apple TV!) that inspired it all - it’s created by Louie Schwartzberg, narrated by Brie Larson, and features Paul Stamets, Michael Pollan, Suzanne Simard... so many heroes - well worth the time if you can find it, especially at this moment when we can all use a little extra positive reminder of our interconnectedness with nature and each other. ✨🍄

My song “Everything I Thought I Knew” was recorded with Mike Coykendall & Mike Meadows in Portland, OR; they’re both so magical. ✨ It also features the wondrous talents of Dave Eggar (cello) and Max ZT (hammered dulcimer) ⚡️✨💥 and was beautifully mixed by Peter Buffett, whose artistry is always expanding my universe. Extra love to Susan Casey and her underwater adventures for deepening the heart of this song.

Thank you for listening. ❤️🙏🏾🌿
