about

Jordann Funk Beacon, New York

As a self-taught musician, Jordann embraces the realm of intuitive folk-- using unusual tunings, chords, and melodies to bring her songs to life. She often feels she's channeling natural forces in her music. Ultimately, she sees her Art as an activism of healing, so that we may reconnect to the Earth and tend to the hurt of the Anthropocene. ... more

Track Name: Driftwood Body
i saw the water coming down
and i wondered how you got around
the twists and turns
the pulling tides
that are pushing me
from side to side

i'm not afraid
i'm intoxicated
by the way that the waves
crash and crash and crash
over my driftwood body
and i surrender
to the movement of the water

to nothing but a dive in
there's unknowing depths at fingertips
oh but nevermind building a bridge
to this infinite stillness

i'm not afraid
i'm intoxicated
by the way that the waves
crash and crash and crash
over my driftwood body
and i surrender
to the movement of the water

if i was water, what would i do?
but flow on over and rush into you
if i was water, what would i do?
but storm on in and wash over you
if i was water, which i am,
what would i do, what do you i want to do?
but open wide and embrace you
Track Name: Wolf Cry
welcome to this madness
where what we've imagined has
become more valued than the earth on which we stand

welcome to this madness
where we've let be a currency
that poisons our rivers and our seas

won't you let the wild wolves of your words escape?
howl like there is no way for us to lose what's at stake
won't you let the wild wolves of your words escape?
howl like there is no way for us to lose our faith

welcome to this madness
where our ancestral way of healing with the land
has been threatened to put the power
in the oppressor's hands

won't you let the wild wolves of your words escape?
howl like there is no way for us to lose what's at stake
won't you let the wild wolves of your words escape?
howl like there is no way for us to lose our faith

and i know you've got the grief of this earth on your shoulders
though the wisdom of us rooted is so much older
than those who have turned their backs on their mother
so together let's shout our truth and move boulders
and tumble down the structures of those who give orders
yet cannot hear the voices of the earth and her creatures
but not for long
for here we stand
howling at the moon

*wolf cries*
Track Name: Starling
this story
it's already told
we are watching it unfold
right before our eyes
in time- this moment's disguise

children of the universe
make your way back to your source
your mother she waits up at night
and waits for us to bring the light
so let her know we will arrive
let's sing her a lullaby

you are a star
don't forget who you are
there is a light shining
who came to live in this body
what will you break through?
what is it that you came to do?

children of the universe
make your way back to your source
your mother she waits up at night
and waits for us to bring the light
so let her know we have arrived
let's sing her a lullaby

the sounds we send they are divine
so sing starling into the night
