Gaia is the goddess of the earth in Greek mythology. This song described the creator who created the earth by the hand of the goddess, but was ruthlessly destroyed by humans. Gaia was disappointed in humans and cursed the humans.
● Chapter 1:
The goddess awakens in the chaos of the universe and she helps God to create the heaven and the earth.

However, bad omen followed…..
Lyric: “וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֗ים תֹּוצֵ֨א הָאָ֜רֶץ נֶ֤פֶשׁ חַיָּה֙ לְמִינָ֔הּ בְּהֵמָ֥ה וָרֶ֛מֶשׂ וְחַֽיְתֹו־אֶ֖רֶץ לְמִינָ֑הּ וַֽיְהִי־כֵֽן׃”

The Truth from Kate Vogel is an empowering anthem for the MeToo movement about sexual assault. Performed with greatness and produced with clarity, a wonderful vocal chill ballad with melancholic notes.
Few words about Kate Vogel:
Kate Vogel fell in love with storytelling lyrics at an early age. At 16, Vogel moved to Nashville, Tennessee and began co-writing, performing, and recording her first record. Not unlike many women before her, Vogel’s ambitions came to an abrupt halt when she fell victim to a predator in the industry, and subsequently stopped singing for 9 years.
A decade later, on the coattails of the MeToo movement, Vogel found the strength to release her debut single, Reasons to Stay, a hopeful ballad born from her trauma and experience with suicide. Vogel confidently sings, in her steady soprano, “the beauty will outweigh the pain, we’ll all find a purpose one day.”
Leaning on musicians from both the Pop and Americana worlds, the result is a beautiful hybrid of vulnerable singer-songwriter music with strong pop sensibilities. Raw and intimate, Vogel’s music captures the metamorphosis of unimaginable pain into the beauty of hope.
“Kate Vogel has one of those rare voices that can make you truly feel the emotion of the lyrics without relying on vocal tricks... Call it Singer/Songwriter, Americana or simply Commercial music if you will but labels are unimportant when an artist can draw you in and immerse you in the feelings this well. ” — Travis Erwin (LA on Lock)
“Nebula” is the result of some experiments Slowburner made in the past couple of months, specifically for those visuals in a music adventure to explore ambient and experimental elements, slow progression sleep ambient that will hypnotize you in its atmospheres and gently harmonic tones.
Few words about Slowburner:
Slowburner is the most recent project of Élvio Rodrigues, composer and producer from Madeira island, now based in Lisbon, Portugal. In spite of being a player of multiple instruments, since 2015 Élvio has been experimenting with piano, field recordings and ambient soundscapes. The result is embodied in Slowburner’s debut EP – Before I Return To Dust – which was self-released in digital and CD formats on March 14th 2017.
In 2018, Élvio challenged himself to explore the piano more, having created for that effect a project named “Sunday mornings are for piano”, on which during 10 weeks he composed 10 songs which he played live on Instagram, one each week.
Those 10 songs were then re-recorded and were self-released in a CD Collection named ‘Sunday mornings are for piano’ in June 7th 2019.
A world music theme driven under violin positive, clearly ethnic melodies and lush grooves that invites you to step up and follow the rythym, instrumental focus with no vocals, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the happy vibes at full and dance.
Few words about Tania Vinokur:
Tania’s main musical inspirations are drawn from Gypsy, Electronic, Pop and Classical music. The subsequent sonic and movement focused creations are enhanced during her live performances. Live shows fully emulate Tania’s triple-threat approach to sharing her artistry with the world portraying her chameleon-like abilities to playing the violin, dance, sing and drum. Her stage presence is therefore simultaneously theatrical and magnetic, transporting audiences to her custom realm of music and movement-driven integration leaving them stunned.
In recent years, Tania has performed globally on European, American, Thai and Cuban stages as well as at various festivals throughout her career. Most recently she has performed at the ADE festival in Holland and appeared on TEDx Jaffa during which she received an ovation for the most original performance at the event. This honor praised her distinct combination of dancing and violin playing which Tania states is “…the most natural thing for her to do.”
Tania Vinokur is soon releasing her new album Dream Again,recorded with the aclaomed producer Yoad Nevo (Sia, Vanessa Mae, Bond) in his London based studios.

Few words about Estella:
Estella is a New Zealand born, Colorado based singer-songwriter. At 23 her work speaks with maturity and confidence. Her songs are a mixture of pop, neo-soul and rock, delivered with an open hearted honesty. While her songs bring you close, her voice never lets you go, Estella sings with the melodic command, subtlety and range that spans genres from Billie Holiday to Billie Eilish.
We are about half way into 2020 and on track to delivering a full length LP, by the end of the year. So far so good. From the Neo-Soul vibes of "Cadmium Yellow" (released in January), the "burn the town down" dynamics of "Hallow" to the attitude heavy anthemic rock of "I Dare You", due out on June 4th, Estella has been flat out.
Not that the last 2+ years weren’t productive. With the release of her EP “Dancing Girls” at the beginning of 2018, and another 8 singles delivered by the end of 2019, Estella has been constantly working. These are well crafted songs with multiple layers, both vocally and musically.
The story starts with Estella singing original songs from the booster seat in the back of her parents car growing up in New Zealand (true, ask her mother). From a young age she glides into songwriting, piano, guitar, music production and recording (piano under the watchful eye of a fierce octogenarian!!) So really Estella has been a musician all her life, like her father and grandfather before her (Andy McGee, lead singer of Desert Road and Max Winnie, Wellington musical icon, respectively) Whether it has been for personal entertainment or crisis management she has music in her; her head, her hands, her heart. Now there is a richness and depth in her voice that has comes from years of hard work and constant singing.
Estella fuses her powerhouse vocals, story like arrangements and diversity of style into music that is unique, honest and intimate.
