about

Brand New Soul is a very personal story about my many-year-struggle with infertility after the birth of our first child. Reproductive issues are a taboo subject that can clear a room faster than a faulty smoke alarm. But NOT talking about this issue would be a disservice to all women and to myself.

After several miscarriages over 6 years, I understandably felt disheartened. During those early years I stumbled across a presentation online, which honestly I can’t claim to have understood, but they spoke of humans as 100 trillion cells made of billions of atoms each, saying we are made of quintillions of little black holes…vortexes in space-time, curling to stillness. This led me to ponder the birth of the universe, which made me think of the first lyric - “from a spark of dust, we combust and turn love into life”.

The universe began with an explosion, which led to life, as we know it. That was very meaningful to me at the time because of the fertility rollercoaster my husband and I had suffered. I kept wondering why our creation of life moment wasn’t occurring for us. The experience had left me with so many conflicting perspectives on what was happening and why. What was emerging during that span of time was my ability to be present in my grief but at the same time accept what was happening. I am a spark of dust in this huge universe too. So why should I expect certain outcomes just because I want them? That question helped me gain perspective and take life one day at a time.

I began to see how very mysterious life is…what a strange miracle it is to create life. It is so tangible for some and so fleeting for others. What helped me through the tough times was feeling connected to something bigger and more universal than myself.

And the loveliest part of learning to accept the pain and sadness of loss is that new things come in that open our hearts. We are so lucky to have made it past the cloudy days and we now have a beautiful 2 ½ year old daughter, in addition to our lovely 10 year old daughter, that both make life fun every day.

lyrics

Yea, I’m freeeee
Yea, I’m freeeee

From a spark of dust
We combust and turn love into life
This mystery and magic hold on and let go
Surrender and wait for the show
In a vortex of light
From obscure we endure and we grow
But the moment is fleeting; this waiting and dreaming
A trip, it’s a burst, the unknown

Free - ee – Freeeee
Freee – ee – Free – ee –ee –ee –ee

From a seed ‘til we cease
We release let the journey unfold
We’re apart, we’re entwined
In the body the mind
We are one, we are young, we are old
………If you believe in love,
Then you’re walking on a winding road
And you believe in love


If you believe in love
Love, if you believe in love
Love, if you believe in love
………Love, you believe in love
……….Yeah I’m free
……….Yeah I’m free… if you believe in love
……….Yeah I’m free
……….Yeah I’m free…. you believe in love
(believe, believe, believe, believe)
……….Yeah I’m free………believe in love


From a spark of dust
We combust and turn love into life
We combust and turn love into life
into life…..into life…..into life…..into life
Love, if you believe in love
if you believe in love
if you believe in love
if you believe in love

about

piKziL Denver, Colorado

piKziL is the musical creation of Liza Oxnard and Kip Kuepper. Long-time collaborators, the two describe their music as somewhere between slanky electro-lounge and jazz nouveaux, with a little bit of scenester grit thrown in. piKziL is a warm and primordial roux, a hot tango between Astrud Gilberto and Debbie Harry. The music is cinematic, evocative, funky, and inexplicably sentimental. ... more
