Michael Stevens This is a gorgeous melodic album - positively dreamlike but the lyrics should be listened to. She has an absolutely beautiful voice. NYP. Favorite track: Land of Dreams.

Roy Meerkamper Beautiful voice, piano/strings/flute new agey, mellow, but not background music - it commands your attention. Thanks Ed Buckley Favorite track: Land of Dreams.

Ed Buckley A lush and lovely recording, this is a blend of World and Folk with a New Age flavor. Storia has a marvelous voice, and is backed by an eclectic assortment of instruments. Again, with no one favorite, I'll leave up the first track. There is a solo version of it on YouTube, just her and the Hang ,on a Paris street. This one

Only a somewhat something moving dreamlike on a fading road."

Track Name: Land of Dreams
Lead on Adventure…
through time and space
An indescribable way we face these coming days
in our Land of Dreams

We built a school of truth, on the flow of the skies...
on the Strength of Love, the Magic of Insight
and the Will to Survive...
in our Land of Dreams

There’s mystery in the life that imitates the art,
There’s history in the forces guiding the stars,
The shadows on the wall, the theatre of it all…
Time’s mist dissolving ways of old.

Patterns washed away in the sand –
It’s a Spiders Web, this dream's apparition
This life is the Fairytale,
shining mirrors, twisted tales
shining mirrors, twisted sails…

There’s mystery in the life that imitates the art,
There’s history in the forces guiding the stars,
All you take yourself to be,
letting go of it all...
then you just might really see,
there’s no way to fall…

Pull focus from all that’s governed and controlled
in so many places –
there’s so many faces
to show to you
In one moment, one day one lifetime…
In our dreams,
in our Land of Dreams.
Track Name: Last Night
Last night
I listened to the sound of the rain,
Not knowing whether I was awake.
The water of the skies,
Melts with the seams of my mind,
A vast, unpredictable lake
Of time…

Way from where we are meant to be
Way from where we are meant to be

Remembering you remembering me
Remembering you remembering me
Remembering you remembering me

And the catch is that neither up nor down brings relief…
In these manifestation myths
…manifestation myths…

….Last night….
I listened to the sound of the rain,
I was awake.
Track Name: Rhythmic Serpent
Is this survival?
Are we waiting for the promised land?
Another side to take the place of what we understand…
Is this survival,
where we live and breathe not asking why
Always falling in the slip stream hurricane of I
Trying to survive


I saw something
I couldn’t face in me
Sometimes
Do you hate what you see?
I’m just
Trying to let go
Sometimes…
I know
I can face it!

Is this survival?
Are we waiting for the promised land?
Another side to take the place of what we understand..
Is this survival where
We live and breathe not asking why
Always falling in the slip stream hurricane of I
Trying to survive
Trying to survive
Track Name: Fall to Earth
Leave it alone
There’s nothing to do…
Leave it alone
There’s nothing to do…

I falter
In this endless sky
I falter
In your eyes

These are the memories we forget
And we can remember how we first me
I fall to earth
In the blink of an eye

These reflections
These reflections

Leave it alone
There’s nowhere to go…
Leave it alone
There’s nowhere to go…

Something about you never moves
Keeps shining like a crystal ball
Water-like-shadow
Beyond the wall

These reflections
These reflections

These are the memories we forget
And we can remember how we first me
I fall to earth
In the blink of an eye
These reflections
These reflections in your eyes

These reflections
These reflections
These reflections
These reflections
Track Name: Swimming Tide
Out there,
In here…
Speak a prayer
Please find me…
Certain as the fading dawn,
We’re close to the day It Will Be

Lesser known,
Are the valleys of your mind…
And mine,
Is like a flight path
in the sky...

A bird in the hand
Is nothing to hold to,
I learned to give that away,
From me.
A bird in the hand
Is nothing to hold to,
I learned to give that away…
Swimming tides…

Where do we go from here?
What do we really have to show for
All the time we spend …
ever changing.
Lets live in the mountains
Where the air is clear,
Bring me honey from the hive my dear…
Lets swim in the tides.

A bird in the hand
Is nothing to hold to,
I learned to give that away
From me
A bird in the hand
Is nothing to hold to,
I learned to give that away…
Swimming tides…

We’re swimming tides,
In the ocean of your mind…
Swim the ocean wide…
Swim the ocean wide…

Out there,
In here....
We're swimming tides...
Track Name: Meltdown
Colours fade and we remain the same,
The deep ocean my dream of you,
Watching waiting for the scenes to change,
To see to feel to be... is alchemy...

Meltdown
Meltdown
Sure of this now,
Floating high above the ground
Sure of this now,
In the end this will all meltdown.

Fire burning feet walking the earth
Hold my hand, water your soul
The road turns skyward winding on and on
Our memories, are drawn, in silence...

Sure of this now,
Floating high above the ground
Sure of this now,
In the end this will all meltdown.

Meltdown
Meltdown
Track Name: Watch The Stone
Every which way before above and over again
and away from here
Im tired of yesteryear...
Now, tomorrow is not far away,
Its nearly midnight,
and i paint my world further from the clock,
that cracks and ties and binds... it binds...

Calm down
watch the stone as you bite,
then you just might,
swallow it all whole...
Calm down
watch the stone as you bite,
then you just might,
swallow it all whole...

Just as if I must play with words or ...
paint with sound...
we go inside
"a storm is coming", she said
And in a teacup we saw those days
flying by
So lets get off this moving train
and catch a wave along ...
somewhow
sometime ...

Calm down
watch the stone as you bite,
then you just might,
swallow it all whole...
Calm down
watch the stone as you bite,
then you just might,
swallow it all whole...
