Ted Warmbrand

When not singing other people's songs, Ted Warmbrand has been making up his own for a long time. They address issues big and small. He says

This song was made up one morning
it was my wife's inspiration
and I followed it to wherever it would lead.
Some say the woman mentioned in the song is Mama Earth.
You make up your mind...

Nancy Vedder-Shults

If I step back to allow an overview of my work, what I see is that I want to Awaken a Creative Vision. I want to inspire new ways of seeing and hearing so that together we can transform the false polarities of our culture and create a more holistic and compassionate understanding of the world. I want to awaken a creative vision that connects and reconnects us to the earth, to each other and to the many ways of knowing ourselves and our Mother Gaia.
