Mariee Sioux’s music is a balm for the soul. The first time I heard her song Two Tongues, over a decade ago, something ancient and undiscovered arose within me. It was a part of myself I’d long-sensed existed but had been previously unable to access. Her music calls forth what is dormant within us, and reveals the true depth of our inner worlds.
Through her music, Mariee distills the wisdom of the ancestors in a way that is poetic, yet accessible. Her songs connect you instantly with the original innocence, and transcendent wisdom that is inherent in each of us.
At its core, her music is medicine. Like a soothing lullaby, it powerfully shifts the nervous system into a state of relaxation and receptivity, and at the same time, it is subtly mind-altering. Each verse builds on the last to widen your perception and court the sacred back to life.
There is no one else I know of making music like Mariee Sioux. Through her songs, she offers us a numinous perspective; a glimmering gift which makes the grief of living on Earth at this time both more beautiful and more bearable. Her music is also a key, miraculously crafted to unlock the ancestral memories which live within each of us .
Mariee’s work has played a huge role in my own healing journey and it was an honor to be in conversation with her. Even if you’re not yet familiar with her music, the stories which follow are sure to stir something deep within you. I highly recommend listening to her albums Faces In The Rocksand Gift For The End, and pre-ordering Grief In Exile, which will be out shortly!
