Her recordings combine the brilliance of her vocal talent with both simple guitar and keyboard, as well as remarkable full orchestrations that carry her captivating voice and lyrics directly into the spirit. They are guaranteed to become favorites, lifting the heart and warming the soul.
Referred to by Thomas Berry as 'Appalachian Songbird', her music speaks of Nature, wind, rain, mountains, animals, oceans, forests - the inspiration and lessons they bring and of our part in the natural world. She is frequently described as the female John Denver...and most deservedly so.
Her newest album, 'NatureSong..Straight from the Heart' is a celebration of our connection with Nature and features the songs Lori sings at Environmental conferences, Music Festivals, Nature Centers and Wildlife Preserves across the country. Opening with the haunting, sacred prayer chant, 'Wakan Tanka' and uniting the voices of 'Earth Hearts' (Wolf, Whale, Eagle and WalkingSong Woman), the listener is taken on an adventure through the bright joy of a young eagle's first flight and the smiling splendor of dancing with dolphins. Also included are her powerful and inspiring, 'Anthem for the Children of Earth' and the exquisitely tender, 'Little Bird.' Here is truly, the music and voice of the Spirit-weaver of Earth Kinship.
Prior to becoming a recording artist, Lori was in high demand as a speaker and presenter of retreats and workshops designed to help participants discover and bring forth their highest potential. Her first album, The Awakening Spirit Songs for the Journey tells the story of its own creation, and is as inspiring as the songs it offers. From the opening, 'In the Embrace of Angels', the listener is beckoned with breathtaking original music and lyrics on a journey to the inner most part of the self. Along the way, fear is faced with hope and the Child-heart within courageously shines through. For anyone facing change or an unknown future or simply their movement through the ups and downs of life here are the songs your heart will want to hear and sing on the journey.
