Review of “My Heaven” –

Hi again and thanks for submitting! “My Heaven” sounds like a heartfelt folk song that seems to delve into themes of longing, fulfillment, and the pursuit of inner peace. With only a guitar as accompaniment, the raw and unedited vocals add a sense of authenticity and vulnerability to the emotional journey portrayed in the lyrics. Opening with contemplation on the nature of heaven, questioning the dichotomy between blessings and curses, the protagonist yearns for a heaven defined by simple pleasures and the warmth of a lover’s embrace, contrasting the idealized image with the complexities of reality. Throughout the chorus, the protagonist reflects on their personal vision of heaven, characterized by an abundance of love and laughter. This sentiment is further emphasized through the imagery of falling for the moon on a cloudless night, highlighting the beauty found in moments of vulnerability and connection. As we progress in the song, the lyrics explore the elusive nature of peace and fulfillment, acknowledging the presence of unresolved dreams and unfulfilled desires. Despite feeling bound by metaphorical chains, the protagonist grapples with the notion that liberation is within reach, if only they had the courage to seize it. In the final chorus, the repetition of the phrase “My heaven” serves as a poignant reminder of the protagonist’s unwavering pursuit of happiness and contentment. Loved the soulful goodness! I will share it on my socials and playlist ASAP!

All the best and thanks! 🙂 – Oghamyst Music

Upcoming Performance at Give Peace a Song – International Day of Peace Celebration

Give Peace a Song

My first live performance since the “Right Here Now” CD Release Concert will be on Sunday, September 20th, 2015 at the “Give Peace a Song” event in historic downtown Nevada City, California. Hope to see a great turnout for peace! More about the event from organizer, Lorraine Reich:

In commemoration of the International Day of Peace, the Peace Center of Nevada County hosts a community event to bridge the unrest and violence of the world with our visions for peace and social and environmental justice. The “Give Peace a Song” event provides a platform for local artists to display art that brings art and politics together in most creative ways. There are many reasons why we should care about art — first and foremost because artists have a lot to say, and through their art we are engaged in ways that expand our view of the world. Some say that art necessarily changes the world, but at the very least we are transformed in our thinking, concepts and world views. The program will feature local song writers and musicians sharing with us their expressions on these times with lively songs and music. Performers will include Catherine Scholz, Nory Fussell, the Peace Chorus, Jeffrey Gottesman, Bob Polucha, and more.

There will also be a number of local community leaders who will speak on various topics that impact our world today. Among the speakers are Sharon Delgado, Reinette Senum, Bill Drake, and unconfirmed is Joanna Robinson. The new “Utah Phillips Peace Bench” project will be announced at the event.

The Peace and Justice Center invites all people of faith, conscience, and goodwill in the spirit of nonviolence to come and join in speaking out publicly for an end to war, poverty, and environmental destruction. The event takes place from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Nevada City Veterans’ Hall at 415 N. Pine Street, Nevada City. For more information visit or write The event is free and open to the public, donations gladly accepted, and of course there will be free snacks and beverages.
