It’s hard to believe we are here – November 2021. It was two years ago that I moved to Boston and began teaching full time while also continuing to perform and record music.

With the pandemic, much of my performing stopped and deep transformation began to unfold within. During that time I also turned 50 and ran my first 10K.

You can listen and watch me working on a new tune here inspired by October.

Now, here I am feeling a return to the very essence of who I am and why I am here. This essence also feels new and expanded – older and wiser, capable of holding more and worrying less. What a gift!

As I begin to record my 6th album, I wanted to invite you to two upcoming opporutinties to be with me, my vibration and some new songs.

First on 11/11, I will be doing a chanting event on ZOOM. It’s a pay what you can situation, though you will need to register to get the passcode. Check out the FB event here.

On 12/21/21 – Winter Solstice – I will be chanting live at Power Yoga of CapeCod with a limited number of guests at 15. If you don’t register in time or would rather not be in person you can also sign-up to livestream it.

This will be a true coming home for me – to my beloved Cape Cod and on the winter solstice, a time when I love doing events. The energy will be healing, uplifting and sacred. I would love to be with all that feel called – whether in person or online.

Enjoy this new moon in Scorpio. We have all been evolving at a rapid rate.

Keep letting go and allowing in the new.

Happy New Moon in October!

Enjoy this new song I am working on called Knowing. Are you following me yet on Youtube? How about Spotify or Instagram? As I record my new record I will be sharing the journey, so be sure to tune in.

May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and Free!

Happy new moon in Virgo! And now almost full moon in Pieces. ( Monday)

Sweet September indeed. I started this blog back on August 21. Hello “transition into fall, trying to catch my breath” reality. LOL. Here we are now at September 18.

I turned 50 a few weeks ago and I feel beyond blessed. Those of you who have already turned 50 know that it creates an opportunity for deep awareness and reflection.

I remember turning 40. That experience also invited me into a lot of reflection and, in fact, I created 40 chants in 40 days a practice which I shared on youtube leading up to my 40th birthday. That action that I took in a time of my life where I was really struggling in a lot of ways was truly transformative for me – both personally and professionally. I remember saying to myself (and anyone that would listen), “I am no longer doing anything that isn’t a part of my soul reason for being here. It was not the easiest decade I must admit, but it certainly was the most expanding and has led me to now – a time where I am truly happy and healthy.

What I didn’t fully realize at the time was that creating 40 and Fabulous was helping me lay a vibrational grid for the next ten years of my life. It led me to record my album 2012: Isn’t it Amazing and the founding of my business Sounding Still Wellness. It led me to chanting and singing in many yoga studios and healing festivals, where I taught meditation classes and facilitated lots of Rising Star Healing Sessions and initiations. It was a dream come true and it all began with my desire to heal and awaken myself. It did not always feel like a dream come true, but it was.

Now, here I am again looking forward at a new decade and I imagine I am laying a new vibrational grid, one that builds on all I have learned, both expanding and simplifying that which most resonates for me now.

What does this mean on a practical level and how can you look forward to tuning into me and my work?

  • I am recording my sixth album to be released in Spring 2022. (YAHOO!)
  • I am growing and developing my music teaching career at a resourced vibrant school called The Meadowbrook School of Weston, which provides me with community, financial flow and abundance and joy
  • I am becoming certified as a Transformational Life Coach in Awakening Feminine Power, which will allow me to serve even more women as they fully self-actualize here in this lifetime.
  • I am leading a retreat at Creacon Wellness Retreat Center in Ireland June 2022.

I can’t wait to share with you all the new songs I am writing and hear more about your journeys in person as I begin booking in person gigs again. If you are a yoga studio or healing center and would like me to come to your space, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am also available for private house concerts.

Be gentle out there, trust your own path, and look for like-minded vibrations to play with.

All is Well.

How is everybody? I just wanted to update my site and give you some good vibes and good music to tune into.

Life is dynamic and constantly evolving. I am grateful for all the peace, love, and abundance in my life right now and I have the joy of being a teacher, so summer vacation is on!

I am in the process of remembering who I am as a singer/songwriter and performer – YAY! So please reach out, if you would like to book me – in a good old-fashioned venue or your back yard. (Here’s to lots of singing LIVE in 2022!!)

I have new songs and old songs and lots of love and inspiration to share, so tune in and let me know if you would like to experience me in the flesh in your yoga class or sacred/healing event.I am about to go back in to studio and record some new songs. I can’t wait!

In the meantime, Have you listened to 12 Rebirth lately? It’s a perfect record for right now.

Follow me Spotify and Instagram to be the first to know about the new music!

In the meantime, why not enjoy one of my most popular songs: I am the Ocean.

Love Love Love!

It’s hard to believe it is already February 5. How is everyone doing out there?

I have had a lot of shifts since the final 6 weeks of 2019 and I could not be more grateful for where I am and all the new music I feel is coming.

I would love to hear how 12 Rebirth is resonating for you. To be honest, I am still processing what an incredible experience it was to make that collection of songs at the level I did and I have a desire to make videos for each and every song. Here is the teaser video if you never saw it

I would love to hear from you if you have a song that you really want to see a video for first. I would also love to hear from you if you make music videos and would like to help me make mine really well on a very low budget. 😉

On a practical level, I am now basing myself in Boston which is really fun! I have taken a music teaching job at a Montessori school in Newton and am having so much fun. It’s a maternity leave position and will wrap up in mid-April.

I am currently making plans for new music to be recorded and released this spring, and I am also leading an incredible retreat/travel tour for women in Ireland that includes chanting and music/sound healing. I am so excited!!

We have one room left open – for a couple or single, so if you feel called, check out the details here. It is from May 4-11 and is co-led with my friend and colleague Jenny Wood.

I know there is a lot happening in our world right now that may be creating a sense of unknown and/or apprehension for us all. I will say, though, that I am feeling a deep peace inside and it is inspiring me to make more music and create more opportunities for others to transform, heal and play.

I can’t wait to share some new offerings with you in the Spring.

The music I have made over the last decade is a great tool if you are moving through loss, difficult emotions, stress or just a regular old day. I encourage you to follow me on Spotify, share my music, and it you want to send me some money to say you value the vibration I hold on the planet, I welcome that.

The way music goes these days, unless you are touring or selling lots of merchandise, your income does not come from people listening to your music on the many platforms that are now available and so I am working on how to make a sustainable living and keep singing and recording music.

This comes from a recent webinar I took with Michael Elsner about the reality of income from music streaming. I found it really enlightening.

The good news is lots of people are listening to my music and I am beyond grateful for that. It inspires me to make more and more music and sing for more and more people in service of my own peace, joy and awakening and the peace, harmony and awakening of us all!

I look forward to playing live for you soon!

In honor of the life and teachings of MLK jr. and the many in our world who are working towards a Humanity that is more just, peaceful, fair, and equal enjoy my song from 2016 Freedom is an Inside Job.

I am thrilled to release this video of Be The Light which I recorded in 2016 produced by Jon Evans.

Enjoy, like it on YouTube and Share!

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

I wrote this song in December of 2009 (I think) and didn’t record it until my record in 2015. Below is a little blurb I wrote about the song in 2014.

The song for me is timeless. Enjoy it here on Youtube.

May your December be filled with LIGHT – inside and out

Reflections on “Be The Light” by Alicia Mathewson (written in 2014)

Growing up on Cape Cod, lighthouses have always been significant. Not until after my mother passed in 2007 though, did I begin to understand how we, as human beings, can be lighthouses. My mother did it without thinking; it was her great gift. She would light herself up from inside and help guide others simply by being who she was.

As a child I was incredibly fortunate. Christmas was always joyful – full of good music, good food, presents and warm company for all to enjoy. My mother was most definitely the center  of this energy – that and our faith that came from generations of Irish Catholic women. I still have specific songs that when I hear them at the holidays, it’s like my mom is right next to me. One of those is Joan Baez’s “I wander as I wander.” What a gift that piece of music is to me and the connection it gives me to my memories as a child and of my mother. As a songwriter, this is my hope for the music I create – that, it too, become a connective energy between souls in meaningful and uplifting ways.

When we lose someone, especially someone as center as my mother was, the holidays can sometimes feel empty and painful. At the same time the rituals and passions we shared can comfort us – the decorations, music, connection with others. Even though it may feel painful or like “someone is missing”, we can always connect into our heart knowing that sometimes only when we allow ourselves to truly feel loss, can we also experience deep joy and happiness.

Now, over 7 years since my mom left the planet, I am finally becoming my own lighthouse at the holidays, truly lighting myself from within in service of all who may need guidance or inspiration. This process of creative awareness and becoming is my greatest passion and this time of year with all it’s natural darkness is a magical time to truly BE THE LIGHT. I wrote this song as a message to myself and it’ is my greatest happiness to share with you. May your heart and holiday be lit up from inside this year and may you serve others simply by being.

We are having so much fun on this new platform and there is TONS OF CONTENT. I have already posted a couple new songs in process.

To celebrate my favorite time of year on Cape Cod, I have decided to create Sweet September: 12 Days of 12 Rebirth.

In this series I will be sharing a track from my recent Album 12 Rebirth, talking about its creation and also linking it to an earlier song of mine. Read more about why I am doing this at Day 1.

Day 12 Born Free and Wise Innocence

I am grateful fo have arrived at Day 12 of this series. It has been so fun to share these songs with you and enlightening to remember and tell some stories I hadn’t thought of for a while.

Wise Innocence was recorded in 2015 at Brick Hill Studios in Orleans, produced by Jon Evans. It was a leap for me at the time to work with Jon and I am so grateful for that experience and recording that many have heard and use often in their meditation or yoga practice.

I was also blessed to make an official video for this track and so enjoyed the process with Kevin Lasit directing.

I partner this song with Born Free because they both have a kind of rock out vibe and include the chord Bm – which is one of my all time favorite chords.

Both Born Free and Wise Innocence are about reflecting on one’s childhood from the wiser perspective of the adult now. They also encourage each of us to remember our purest and truest essence.

There is great joy and healing in both songs and I invite you to sit back, roll your windows down and soak in all the vibration.

Thanks again for tuning into my 12 Days of Sweet September. If you have a certain day or song you really enjoy, I encourage you to share it vie email or social media.

And be sure to check out Creative Play with Viv and Alicia. I will be sharing a full moon chant this Saturday recorded at Creacon Wellness Retreat.
