For singer-songwriter Lydia Fairhall singing is an aligning force. Along with The She Oaks, she draws on elements of folk, pop and alt-country to bring listeners to higher realms, inviting them to notice the beauty in the world. “I share these songs because I am deep in humanity and hope that others may find healing and reprieve in my work."
