The Beauty We Love (CD) was released September 2006. All 13 tracks can be heard at From the dedication: We dedicate this CD to the Beauty that uplifts the human heart. May these songs be inspiring in some small way to all who hear them. We express our gratitude to all the spiritual traditions of the world that for centuries have guided followers toward the Light. This CD honors these many paths to the same mountaintop.

Everything Real (CD) was released May 2012. Click the Audio link to hear some tracks and view lyrics. Most of the 16 songs on this CD are original compositions, inspiring listeners not only to focus on the great beauty life has to offer, but also to be good stewards of the planet. Included are songs that are thoughtful, upbeat, meditative, evocative, inspiring, and humorous, made especially powerful by the artistry of our guest musicians, above.

Both CDs are available on Amazon.



Jewelsong was born on the beautiful NC Outer Banks on July 5 2002 at a Sufi retreat. We emerged like Venus from the cosmic ocean of "The Beauty We Love," a phrase from a poem by Sufi mystic Jelaluddin Rumi that is also the title of our first CD. Sofianna, Marilyn, and Farrunnissa sang the first Jewel Song, "100s of Ways" by Tom Tracy and the Dead Poets, inspired by the same Rumi poem.

Our first performances were effortless and creatively fulfilling, with the audience responding with gasps of awe and grins of delight. This has been the standard for all the songs we create and all the joy and inspiration we endeavor to share.

Betsy joined Jewelsong about a year later, initially for 4-part harmony on her powerful song "Stand for Peace." Our voices and styles clicked in a profound way, and we've continued singing together and creating new music together ever since.

We've all been vocal and instrumental musicians most of our lives, and the richness of our backgrounds is a never-ending source of shared creativity and innovation. New songs are constantly flowing from the Muse, inspired by the different spiritual traditions, by the beauty of Nature, by the sacred trust of caring for the Earth, and by the Dance of Universal Peace, sacred writings, other songwriters, life, and our own imaginations and insights.

We make our homes in the Durham-Chapel Hill area of the North Carolina Triangle.
