Welcome

I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living on the West coast of America.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you. 

Fear vs Love? Four songs to help dispel fear.

Funny Kinda Guy - documentary about me

Livestream only

https://www.crowdcast.io/e/funny-kinda-guy

Back in 2002, my talented friend Travis Reeves made Funny Kinda Guy, an amazing full length documentary film about my gender change and the process of losing my alto voice. Hard to believe it now, but when this film was made there was almost no information publicly available about the experience of being transgender and the process of gender transition. This award-winning documentary is a wee gem; I am so grateful to Travis for pouring so much love and care into this film that captures one of the most important chapters of my life.

No charge for this event. If you want to offer a donation to support my work, that's always welcome, but absolutely not required!

DIY Easter Fire

Your home!

For many years now a few people in my local town have gathered on the beach at sunrise for a lovely grassroots celebration of Easter.

This year I'll still greet the Easter sunrise with song, prayer & a fire. I invite you to join me, either by creating your own ritual or following along with mine on my livestream. To learn more, please visit

Grief & Remembrance Livestream Service

https://www.crowdcast.io/e/good-friday

https://www.crowdcast.io/e/good-friday

In the Christian tradition, we honor and remember the death of Jesus at 3 pm on the Friday before Easter. For me, it's a time to honor the healing and transformative aspects of death, and remember that death is a portal to love.

In this unusual moment, many of us who have experienced the death of a loved one aren't able to find healing through the usual rituals of funeral, wake, burial, or memorial. I hope this livestream service will offer a space for us to honor those we've lost.

This is not a traditional Good Friday service, but will draw inspiration from the psalms and use song, chant, and prayer to both mourn and celebrate the passing of our loved ones.

There will be a time to light candles together for those who have died, so if you'd like to join in please have a candle ready.
