Be Not Afraid - Solo Album

by Kristin Rule

supported by
/
  • Kristin Rule's 2006 debut album 'Be Not Afraid', was recorded live, in a Tin Shed, in the middle of the Australian Bush. A low budget Album, presented as a new beginning after a prolonged depression (resulting from the death of her father in 2002).

    The first track (hidden BONUS track), Arc-en-ciel (cello duet), was composed days after her father died, receiving it's first performance at his funeral in honor of his memory.

    She writes; "It is the knot in the wood, or the scar from ones past that shines most brightly. Without this, life is sameness. One cannot know joy without also knowing sorrow. I strive to know both"

    From this early example of Kristin's first attempts at live looping and improvising on the cello (and viola), we are able to see just how far she has traveled and will keep on traveling, with the 2010 critically acclaimed release of 'The Knife that Cuts a Tear' to her most recent and yet unheard works.....Kristin is ever striving for the truth and it's raw beauty.

Track Name: Be Not Afraid
Be Not Afraid of the wind, my friend.
Welcome the change that he brings.
Listening for whispers,
float freely in his breadth,
and wait for the timing,
To make the first step.

Fear not the storms in the night, he says.
For the moon pulls us higher inside.
Midnight passes,
and all through the darkness,
comes light that is blinding,
Bringing sight beyond mind.

Live not a death by the sea, he warns.
Dangerous tides never ending.
Oceans give life,
to those who can swim deep,
and beauty so strongly.
Journeys within.
