10 years ago I was flying to Lebanon to teach music at the American Community School in Beirut. It was 2010 and I am pretty sure the apartment I lived in during that time has been blown up. My heart is with the Lebanese people and all helping to support them in this moment. I remember singing Better Me at a school talent show and a student coming up to me and saying, why are you a teacher? Why are you not a famous singer? I left Beirut 3 months later and recommitted my life to why I am here. That led to the 2012 release of Isn’t it Amazing?

Now here I am in Boston, MA stepping into a new teaching position at The Meadowbrook School of Weston in the middle of a global pandemic and the cultural pandemic (and hopefully transformation and reparation) of systemic racism. Full circle for this little human being, I must admit.

If there is one thing I know now on the eve of my 49th birthday, I was born to be a teacher and my students are here to awaken me.

In September of 2001, I was living in Brooklyn, NY and was working on the 16th floor of Rockefeller Center as a temp when two planes hit the World Trade Center. This past March, as COVID took NYC by storm, I was in Boston, MA remembering that time vividly.

2020 has taught me time is a spiral, everything is energy and when in doubt, I choose love. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

In 2007, my mother left her body, though her Spirit is endless. She birthed me into a body in August of 1971 and in that year, a lot of amazing music was released (Ain’t No Sunshine, Imagine, I Feel the Earth Move, A Case of You.)

On May 17, 2019 I released 12 Rebirth. It was my greatest and most loving creative achievement to date. The honoring and end of a chapter.

Today, a new chapter begins.

Sounds of Alicia.

I wonder what will happen next.

 

Will you join me?

Happy New Moon in Leo – August 18, 2020

Hello Friends!

IMG_0834It has been a while since I have visited this space and shared. I apologize. It has been an internal time for me and much is being created. I will be releasing a new Album in the spring of 2019 and I couldn’t be more excited to share the new songs and the new vibration with many many new people throughout the US and abroad.

In the meantime, I am returning to Cincinnati for a concert on 11/10 at my friend Vivienne Gerard’s home and I am so excited to see many of you in person. The amazing news is that Vivienne has created on online portal of light that all can tune into no matter location. I am holding a vibration within this portal and have already shared the chant Asato Ma to open the portal on 11/1 (yesterday). I will also be sharing a chant/musical vibration on 11/11 to close the portal. ANYONE and everyone can tune in by going to this PAGE and joining us in holding a powerful vibration of light for ourselves and all during these 11 days of November.IMG_9886

I am also singing and chanting locally here on Cape Cod for a private NEW MOON event  on Nov. 7 at a home in Osterville. If you would like more info, please email me.

And save the dates of Dec. 7 and Jan. 5 for other New Moon chanting events locally on Cape Cod!

Thank you for listening.

Thank you for being you!

IMG_0562Greetings all. It has been a while since I have posted, as I have been in a lot of deep personal contemplation. Sometimes on the journey, as an artist and as someone who chooses to see their journey as a spiritual one, there is the need for an outer silence, as one allows the inner landscape to shift and transform. I have been in such a passage since around April of this year. As you all know the noise in the outer world is quite intense and so I have found a greater need to slow down, be still and allow myself to get very clear about my next steps as an artist and as a human on this earth right now.

The good news is many new songs have come through me and the vibration they hold is one of truth, love, hope, human fragility, the power of connection, and transformative joy. Join me on Aug 31 at the Barnstable Tavern to hear some of them live. I look forward to recording them over the next few months and sharing this new vibration far and wide.

Today, this new moon in Leo feels like a rebirthing and so if felt powerful and true to say a quick hello and let you know I am still here and will be sharing new music very very soon.

In the meantime, please feel to reach out in anyway should you be interested in some live music for an event or a private energy healing session. These are powerful times to be alive and I am grateful for each opportunity to connect in the vibration of love, truth, peace, non-violence and right-conduct.

I share with you one of my favorite tracks from Wise Innocence, Samastah Lokah Sukhino Bevhantu. May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and Free!

 

 

new moon 5.15
From New Moon Deck by Aarona Lea

Whew! I have been in some kind of vortex since January. Truly. Something about today – this new moon has delivered me into a whole new vibration. I couldn’t be more grateful.

The best news is, I have been writing  tons of songs. These songs are a new vibration –  a vibration that feels very connected to my  2012:Isn’t it Amazing? album. Like that album, I have had to travel deep inside and into dark places in order to allow what wants to come through, to come through.

I still spend time thinking “why can’t I just be a happy artist who is always motivated and moving forward? Why must I dive deep into the abyss in order to create?” In this moment, in the energy of this new moon, I laugh at this question. That is like asking, “why must I carry a baby for 9 months, Can’t I just think about it and it be here?”

I recently met a beautiful soul in the body of a young man at my favorite coffee shop in my town and he enlightened me by talking about the law of gestation. That is where I have been – GESTATING. And so, thank you for still being here and know that a whole new offering is coming and I can’t wait to share it. so much LOVE to all of you.

Happy Happy New Moon in May!

Another December and I’m coming home, but not like I’ve ever done before

I can’t help but remember all the places you had me roam, so I could be here now for what’s in store

And I’m gonna Be the light I always dreamed I’d be

Be the light for all to see

Be the light I always dreamed I’d be

Be the light for all to see

-from Be The Light by Alicia Mathewson originally written in 2008, recorded in 2015

Happy New Moon to all! It’s an incredible time to be alive. I hope you are taking time to be still, listen to your favorite music, take walks in the woods, rest, drink water and connect with like minded loving friends. 2018 will be all about love. It’s YOUR Choice whether you focus on love or focus on fear. CHOOSE LOVE. it’ really is the best way to go.

Join me on THURSDAY this week at Power Yoga of Cape Cod Dennisport for an incredible evening of live music and yoga along with Kristen O’Toole, Stephanie Gilrein, Emily Harris and Leigh Alberti.  Proceeds benefit SQ Foundation (global) and WE CAN (local), so it’s an opportunity to give yourself a GIFT while also serving others.

We are in the new moon cycle in late October. It’s a wonderful time for transformation and musical awakening. I can feel lots of new songs bubbling up and am looking forward to a lot more writing and hopefully a new record soon.

In the meantime, my record Isn’t it Amazing? that I released in March of 2012 has circled back into the consciousness and has helped create an amazing new opportunity and experience for me and all who want to join!

I will be doing a house concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on 11/11 in the home of Vivienne Gerard followed by a Crystal Core Activation. Connecting with Vivienne and her work through her new book One Day is Here has been mystical, magical and incredibly affirming of why I make music. My songs Breath in Breath Out and Sweet September are highlighted in her book along with tracks by Snatam Kaur and Imagine Dragons. pretty cool musical company if you ask me.

All of the details for the concert and activation can be found here.

On Nov. 11, 2009, which I consider 11-11-11, I toned in the Great Pyramid at Giza and felt it as an initiation. This is a picture of what I saw when we exited the pyramid.

Now, 8 years later, the fullness of that experience will continue to evolve and expand. I hope you can join us for this most amazing event!

IMG_9374Hello all – can you believe it’s July 23rd? Wow, time sure is moving fast.

I wanted to send a quick note and let you know I am singing this Thursday at Bismore Park on Hyannis Harbor as a part of the Love Listen Local series. It’s also a good time to save the date for our next Full Moon Beach Yoga with live music – Monday Aug. 7.

The energies inside and out are calling us to be still and allow for great change. So take time to be in nature, listen to music, chant with others, take naps and CHILL OUT. All is well and all will happen in Divine Time. Check out my meditation and healing energy offerings at Sounding Still Wellness.

August is coming and it’s a great month to listen to my old new-age country song, Back Porch Drunk. Peace to all. Make Music, Be Happy!

Happy New Moon!!

 I am so grateful for all the KICKSTARTER Backers that have helped me release this record out into the world. We have 3 days left for you to claim some excellent rewards.

Listen to the title track here

Please help me celebrate by sharing the music on it’s official release this Saturday Dec. 3. Stay tuned on Facebook & Twitter and be sure to share far and wide.

Thank you and may your day be blessed and peaceful!
