Spirit Lake is not a band. it is life. it is experience. it is soul. it is the urge to keep moving forward. to live. every breath is to fill the lungs. to bring life to the body. every sound is to fill the ear. to bring life to the soul. coursing through the veins they vibrate. strings plucked/struck by being alive. this is communication at it's base. catharsis. joy. fear. love. urgency. purpose. it is from the earth. the soil. of the dirt beneath your feet. moving you. it cries out to be set free. trekking through the wilderness. the unknown. to find the known. the essential. the innate. it speaks to the good. to the bad. it's dirty. it's slow. not there. yet you feel it. the body moves. heavy and deep. the seas have no depth. it is in you. throughout. the sites are vivid. clear. to big to be seen. you have to touch you have to believe. the perseverance of humanity. a culmination of lives. we have a right to know that we are strong. powerful. the truth cannot be denied when all hear it. we will not let them obscure. our sound permeates. stays with you. we do this not because we can, this is not an easy path, but because we must. we are driven. of all things, and of one goal. to raise humanity up. to shout in the face of ignorance with civility and truth. we are alive. and among the living. we forge our existence as one. waves beating the shore shaping our landscape. crashing sounds. oh the comfort of sound. of the waves. the vibrations of our strings. we move together.
Spirit Lake is a driving force, melodic, urgent, and powerful. Coursing over the high desert and now nestled into the misty woods. When you hear it you will know. Your body cannot help but find it's place in the groove. Imagine Zeppelin playing Neil Young covers after seeing Mavis Staples.
