    “Crown in the Sky once again features Addison’s sultry, earthy, sensuous vocals, wrapped in state-of the-art electronics (just like her last two recordings) and infectious, percolating beats…via tasty chill-out rhythms and catchy electronica melodies, sometimes laced with reggae/dub influences or a smattering of world beat flavor. . It all adds up to the listener grooving to the music’s soul while the songs’ heart (via lyrics that address our relationship with this fragile and yet so-giving planet and our responsibility to be loving caretakers) enlightens our consciousness.” Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter

    “KiVo is a playful movement and vocalization practice developed by Lis Addison. Short for “Kinetic Voice,” KiVo® blends sound healing and chant with tribal and conscious dance. It provides an inner workout through accessing the voice’s subtle vibrations and an outer workout through dance.”

    “Crown in the Sky is a journey into the feminine side of nature. From the hope of “New World” to the Goddess herself in “Mother Gaia” each song is a balm for the weary soul and a breath of fresh air. If you are looking for an uplifting spiritual experience that reflects love of earth and the power and majesty of The Goddess, then you need to experience this talented artist for yourself.” Dana Wright-Muzik Reviews

    “Addison wraps Crown in the Sky in beautiful fashion, expressing simple gratitude for the sustenance of earth and sun . . The musical-spiritual world of Lis Addison is transcendent and magical, reflecting deep connections between the earth and its people. It’s an intriguing journey like no other recording in any genre this year.” – Jonathan Widran

Still loving electronic music

Still loving electronic music

I believe that if we had heard what Chief Seattle had said in 1854, we would not be in the crisis we are in today, but as he says we “cannot be exempt from the common destiny” so perhaps there is no other way. His wisdom, so eloquently spoken, is shared below: “A few more [...]

“Pay attention to where you put your feet. Then you will know where you are.” I like to think of the grace of the mighty elephant and how she walks softly on the earth, the pads of her feet spreading over the ground. It is the same ground we walk upon. Awareness of how and [...]

Functional Art

Functional Art

As a singer, I missed dancing when I performed, as a dancer, missed singing when I performed and as a composer, yearned to create functional art.  The exploration of sound healing twenty years ago led to the creation of “Vocal Chakra Healing Tones” or “Chakra Chants” to open and activate the chakras.  These chants are [...]

Ever more mountains to climb

Ever more mountains to climb

I was 16. We had been holed up in a snow cave at the bottom of a gorge for 3 days. The blizzard had dropped so much snow an avalanche could strike and bury us at any minute. Our Guides decided it was too dangerous to stay in the snow cave and planned a “shortcut” [...]

Freedom Trail

The East Coast is a different world from the one I am used to in California. On a recent trip to Boston, I had the feeling I was halfway between America and Europe! There is so much American history back east-I’d forgotten. My thoughts are trained on a bright future I hope to co-create with [...]
