I traveled to South Africa a few years ago, right in the middle of a terrible drought. Water rationing was imperative and prayers for rain were on everyone’s lips. I learned about the Marula Tree during my time on safari – not only does it survives drought, but also becomes a source of nourishment and medicine for animal and human alike. I hope you enjoy my newest production – “Marula”, as I try to capture the spirit of my journey through this beautiful country. (Marula features African artist – Spirit-T – please check out his amazing work!)(Also, big screen and headphones or stereo speakers recommended:)
We recently had the amazing opportunity to work with Spirit-T, a recording artist from Cameroon, Africa. He was hired to add backup vocals to Nancy Beaudette’s – soon to be released – song, Marula. The Marula tree is a miraculous, drought resistant and healing tree that thrives in the southern part of the continent of Africa. Stay tuned for the video release, but in the meantime, we were so impressed with Spirit-T, we wanted to share him with you asap. Please subscribe and share his youtube channel to support his beautiful songs and spirit.
In the stillness of Shiva’s cave, I sat in silence. It was very dark, just a single candle glowing on a stone altar adorned with a picture of his likeness, flowers, herbs and other such offerings. I waited and listened. And there it was, as if never lost or forgotten, shiny and new, from the deep place where spirit meets source – music. Song. My retreat partners, and the Children at Ramana’s Garden sing along with me in this video. We all hope you enjoy our song.
Moonlit Pond Records is pleased to announce the video release, “Cradled by the Moon,” written by Jan Blaising and Nancy Beaudette, performed by Jan Blaising.
“When the hardest part is only just beginning … I know I’m cradled by the light of the moon.” These words that ring true for me during life’s challenging times. In my darkest hours, I know I’m held by a loving God who shines light every hour of the day or night,” says Jan.
We sincerely hope this song brightens your day and helps you overcome your struggles.
Moonlit Pond Records is pleased to announce the release of “Mountaintops and Oceans” by Jan Blaising Music.
Jan’s new single, “Mountaintops and Oceans,” is a song Jan wrote to honor her Mom. The song tells the story of a woman who overcame significant obstacles in her early life through love and faith. It describes the ways Jan’s Mom brought gifts of grace and grandeur from her early home in Washington state to the Indiana plains, where she met and married a minister and raised a family. “Mountaintops and Oceans” is a timely song to honor mothers everywhere.
“Such a beautiful song ~ like a fresh mountain stream ~ and your voice and the production are impeccable!” ~ Beth Nielsen Chapman (bncmasterclasses.com)
When Beth Nielsen Chapman said Jan’s song are “like a fresh mountain stream” she must have just listened to, “Mountaintops and Oceans,” Jan’s award-winning song! With much anticipation, Moonlit Pond Records is pleased to announce the lyric video release to this fabulous song. Stay tuned on social media and Jan Blaising Music for the May 1st premier!
We are pleased to share the release of MPR Artist, Jan Blaising‘s, lyric video release for the song, “It Wasn’t a Silent Night After All.”
Jan says, “The idea of the song is that when God chose to enter the world and become human, God didn’t choose perfect circumstances – so the song tries to capture the difficulty and the hardship of that holy night – because if God didn’t choose perfect circumstances when God came to earth, then that means God can enter into our imperfect circumstances too.”
Together with co-writer, Nancy Beaudette, the two crafted the idea into a song that retells the Christmas Story from a different vantage point. We hope you enjoy this fresh take on well known theme.
A couple of years ago three of the four Kelly Girls vacationed in Ireland. They rented a Narrowboat from Barrowline Cruisers. Their experience floating along the canals inspired this song (along with some time spent in the pubs!) We hope you like the award-winning song, “Reeds On The River” – Written by Nancy Beaudette.
Nancy Beaudette traveled to Egypt in 2018. She was captivated by the beauty of the land, the Egyptian people, and of course, all the mystery and intrigue surrounding their ancient culture. She wrote the song “River Nile” and created this video to try and capture a bit of her experience while visiting this amazing country.
Moonlit Pond is delighted to present The Kelly Girl’s original song and first official video, “Daffodils”, inspired by the poem “I wandered lonely as a cloud” by William Wordsworth. Band members Aisling Keating and Nancy Beaudette collaborated on the writing of this song, adapting the poem to an upbeat melody and adding a very happy jig! The song is included on their CD, “May You Always”, available online at iTunes, Spotify.
We hope you find fields of joy every day of the year.
