Shine On.........

I follow the blog of a wonderful woman named Lara Katherine Mountain Colley.  She is a mountain woman, in love with the land and I really enjoy her blog.  Recently she did a post on her blog A Mountain Hearth about the artist May Erlewine.  I'd never heard of May and Seth before, but I'm now a big, big fan. 

I realize they've been around a while and I'm a little late to the party, but boy do I really like them a lot.  May's voice reminds me so much of Janis every good way there is.  They are both beautiful and soulful and wonderful and I just had to share!

The song in the clip below is Shine On and it moved me so, that I've listened to it about 10 times in a row!

ps....thanks Flower Lady and Lara for reminding me of how JanIS Joplin's name is actually spelled.......whoops!

God Bless..............


  1. Oh my gosh, thank you for introducing me to Daisy Mae and Seth. Shine On was a great tune. I had to go to You-tube to see what else they might have and Waterfall was beautiful.

    Her voice does remind one of Janis, only she seems younger, and not as earthy/worldly as Janis probably because she hasn't lived the same kind of life that Janis did.

    She can reach so many ranges and her voice touches my heart. DH really liked her too.

    I will be listening to her again.

    Love and hugs to you ~ FlowerLady

  2. mmm...they are new to me too! totally loved it!!

  3. I'm so happy you are enjoying May and Seth's music too! "Shine On" is one of my very favorite songs. I grew up listening to Janis Joplin, and now that you mention it, May's voice does remind me of her. That must be part of why I like her music so much! :)

  4. WoW! What a blessing that you shared this video, as well as A Mountain Hearth Blog!

    Would love to find out if they sell CD's, I'd like to listen to more of their music, we absolutely love "Folk" style music and have a collection of some of our local favorites.

    Janis Joplin holds a special place in my heart.

    Thank you for sharing this, I needed to hear it, again and again and again! I'm going to check out their other videos.

    I'm "Shining On" in the darkness before the dawn :o)

    Blessings and HUGS,

  5. So glad everybody liked them as well! I bought several songs off itunes and have been listening nonstop and I woke up singing Shine On

    Thanks Kit! ;0)

  6. Dang I can't here it on the connection I'm on... I'll have to try later.

  7. I also really liked "Down in the Valley"
