Song Of The Soul
Song of the Soul invites you to a soul-level encounter. Music has the ability to proclaim the soul's language beyond what mere words can speak. That's what we seek as we invite our guests to share their Song of the Soul. You will hear the music that has charted the steps of their spiritual journey, that has provided a touchstone in the soul's dark night, and sung the hearts awe and joy when come to the Light. As you listen to Song of the Soul, you are both witness and companion to our guest's spiritual path and sacred testimony.

Song of the Soul guests provide about 25 minutes of the music that speaks of their spiritual path, beliefs or journey, and Mark Helpsmeet explores with them the relevance and meaning of this music to their experience. Some guests are musicians, perhaps sharing their own music, but most guests are simply sharing music they've been impacted by, written and performed by others.

The theme song for this program is by Cris Williamson and is called Song of the Soul. Please check out the wealth of great music Cris has gifted to the world.

The Woman In Me - Susan Marie Gallion

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:
Buddhism, Catholic, Episcopalian, Methodist
 
Susan Marie Gallion's song, The Woman In Me has won many a heart, and was even nominated for a Grammy Award. Though Susan wrote it, most folks got to know it through the voice of Crystal Gayle. It's only one of the moving & captivating songs that Susan has done over the decades, from her first band, The Singing Prophets, through her time as part of Susan and Richard Thomas, and since then simply as Susan Marie Gallion. Originally from Milwaukee, WI, she now calls Florida home. You can also find her on Facebook as OceanBirdMusic, and her music is on her Reverbnation page, on Soundcloud, or via Susan's YouTube channel.  [ More... ]    [ Excerpts ]

Flute & Longing with Lisa Wildman  
Regular Song of the Soul listeners know how much I love singer-songwriter/folk & music, and it was some of that sort of music that first attracted me to Lisa Wildman, but that only scratches the surface of the music that Lisa makes. As you'll hear today, classical music played exquisitely on her flute is deep in her bones, and we won't even be hearing from the country, zydeco, and opera music she does. Besides playing and singing with orchestras, her collaborations include performing with the folk music-oriented Group W, and the children's music-oriented with Peanut Butter Jellyfish. She was on Song of the Soul in 2010.  [ More... ]    [ Excerpts ]

The musical genes of his father, Josh White, flowed powerfully through all the family, with Josh White Jr developing a devoted following with decades of touring and 16 recordings. Josh spent several years in acting before settling into his lifelong musical career, combining a powerful stage presence with consumate guitar & vocal skills.
